We dined here for my birthday and it was beautiful. Because it wasn't peak season we didn't have a time slot reservation which meant we could enjoy all of it for as long as possible. The food was beautiful, the wine really nice selection and perfect views of the caldera. It is a little pricey but when you compare where... More

The food was OK, but overpriced for what you got. Personally we wouldn't go back. Also we were unfortunate in that the table next to us all chain smoked, not the restaurants fault as it's not banned yet but still it's not pleasant for those who do not smoke.

Friendly staff, nice atmosphere (but the bathroom is a little hard to find). Best tzatziki and grilled pita I had during my trip! Every meal our group had was amazing from the fresh squid to the leg of lamb. A definite must visit. A little pricey but worth it.

We just happened upon this place after leaving a tour and decided to have lunch. It is situated on the edge of the cliff so you go through the door and descend into the restaurant. As it was cold and raining, outdoor dining was not an option, so we descended further until we entered the small indoor dining room. It... More

We booked this via a recommendation from the hotel for our family of four for a birthday celebration. The recommended wine was gorgeous and the food excellent - both fish and meat dishes and is was lovely to eat excellent food whilst watching the beautiful sunset. The restaurant was quiet, save for a wedding party which was lovely to watch... More

Out of our group of four, I enjoyed my meal the most. Located on the cliffside in Fira, this restaurant is a little more on the fine dining side. My meal was delicious and the views are awesome. While it is a bit more expensive than a few of the other restaurants we ate at, it was still well priced.

We had dinner at the Spinx restaurant on our first night in Santorini. It was a perfect introduction to the beautiful location and the wonderful food. Prices were great, and the wine was excellent.

A bit on the fancier side for restaurants in Fira but they had a great location with views of the caldera and right across to oia. We had the fava beans and muscles to start, both which were great. For the main course I had the porchini mushroom and truffle risotto which was fantastic served with a cold ricotta cream... More

This place was close to our hotel & recommended by our hotel manager - it definitely lived up to the recommendation! The pasta was fresh & extremely tasty. Try the basil linguine & fresh truffle mushroom linguine - they were awesome! We went back a second night & both had the fillets - cooked to perfection! Also, the wine list... More

We went for the view but were pleasantly surprised by the quality. Be prepared for a climb down for the bathrooms. The lamb chops were excellent.
