Description: ASSYRTICO Wine Restaurant cafe, since 2011, offers alternative and innovative suggestions of the Greek Cuisine, using mainly local and selected products from around Greece. The same philosophy inspired the restaurant's wine list. A wide variety of wines from Santorini and the rest of Greece can be explored with the help of the professional staff of the restaurant! In 2016 Assyrtico relocated and moved from the 1st floor to the Garden of the'60s mansion it was based.

I was recommended this restaurant by a work colleague and she was not wrong. I loved the ambience of this restaurant, very modern. The menu was very varied. The saganiaki (greyer cheese and fig jam) I'm reliving it as I type. The staff were very welcoming and knowledgeable of both food and wines.
The restaurant is in the main section of Fira overlooking the bay. I didn't get that view (I was there for the food only) but would go back and request a seat overlooking the water.

Thank Moooki

We visited this great restaurant in July 2013, and were extremely impressed with the food. Local specialties were delicious and service was impeccable. Perched on the upper level of building in central area of Fira, it provided great views of sunset and Caldera.

We sat outside and were treated to a view of the town cascading below us. The restaurant is above the main walkway through town so it was great for people watching as we enjoyed our meal. The leg of lamb is a lamb shank marinated and stewed...delicious! Entire staff was very knowledgeable about the many wines served. After dinner we moved in to the bar for dessert and the vin santo... don't skip dessert or the vin santo!!!
