Reviewed October 4, 2012

bar with amazing view to caldera. they play classical music all the time. ideal place for sunset. there are tables and kind of sunbeds you can relax and enjoy your drink while sunis going down. franco's has only drinks and few desserts, so it is not for dinner. combination of music and view is just increadible. service was also great.
but one big minus - there was very strange smell on all terraces of the bar. like, excuse moi, you are sitting in the toilet. sometimes this smell dissapeared, and you can enjoy fully the magic of sunset moments, and sometimes it was back.
really really really pity. if not that smell, everything would be just perfect.

I was there only one time to see the sunset, and believe me the view was amazing but the cocktails WoW the were even more better (delicious) I had Golden Long Icland Ice Tea special made for me :)) One of the many specialities of the Vlado The Bartender ( thanks for the great cocktail) was the best coctktsil ever. I am coming again for sure :)) All the Best.

The view was amazing and it was nice sitting in the deck chair but that was about it. The drinks are expensive, most of the cliff side restaurants have cheaper drinks and the music was too loud and trying to compete with techno music from above. It didn't set a very good mood at all.

Apparently, this is the 'cool' place to have a drink in Santorini, but I don't get it. The cocktails start from €14, which is about 40% more than most places with a similar view. Classical music is nice, but there are other places that play quite music where you can relax. I would suggest Palia Kameni or the Enigma Cafe. Same view, nice environment and drinks are not a rip-off.

Very very expensive, snobbish and definitely overrated! This place lives only on the fame of a very long time ago when it was the only bar in Fira! I regret going back. Thankfully now days there are lots of other options!
