This restaurant truly, and much like other places in Fira, boasts stunning views, and the added bonus is that your 6.5 euro beer is in no danger of warming up, as one could brew decent tea in it at that temperature. The waiter wasn't very nice about it either, whose reply was 'it was in the fridge'...

Perched 225m above the caldera and fronting the main pedestrian street, it enjoys great views of the caldera and cruise ships. A total complete bar….surprised a bit how few customers were there the time we dropped in, early afternoon on a weekend with ships in port. Service was efficient. The imaged salad was comprised of the usual fresh ingredients, attractive... More

This restaurant/ bar has great views of the famous Santorini sunset. The service was efficient if not a bit snobby. We watched in dismay when the waiter ushered paying customers away from the best seats to catch the view just so they could pump more customers through the door. The customers who from what we could tell had already spent... More

There is so many words that could be said about this view from the select cafe, but they still will not cover the beautiful view you get when there.

I went with my parents and little brother, we enjoyed a lovely dinner with an amazing view. We stayed there for hours to enjoy the sunset and the beautiful weather. We sat at the upper level so we could fully experience the Santorini view. We came back a couple of days later and had a bottle of wine while watching... More

True, this place has great views, but so does a lot of other restaurants and cafes in Fira. The place is not affordable nor offer very good customer service. This place is more or less a tourist trap without the Greek atmosphere - I will never return to this place, not even for drinks or a coffee.

Spent 30 mn there for a drink on a very hot day. Waited 10 mn before anyone dare asking us what we wanted and even made fun of us when we asked for a waiter. Did not bring any glasses of water as they usually do in. Fresh mixed juice at 10€70... At least you pay for a incredible view,... More

I can see why people whine about this restaurant, I really do, BUT, just look at our example: We went there at 1 pm, wanted to visit the museums which close at 3, so we went back at 3, without reservation. Now that's the only negative point, as we had asked before if we could come back later, and noone... More
