Dinner here first night in Santorini. Perfect sunset-watching location, excellent food and first rate service. Pleasant wait staff providing prompt attention, starting with hostess, Maja. Popular place as diners all get up to take photos of the setting sun during their meals. If you are seated in the view path to the sunset, you will have others intermittently blocking your view and standing near your table. This is just the reality and it didn't bother us, but may bother some.

We shared three dishes: the zucchini millefeuille to start, and a Greek salad and the lamb pieces with pita and lettuce salad. All dishes used fresh ingredients and light olive oils, and the lamb especially was roasted and flavourful. Great dipping sauces. Order bread (which was just ok) to mop up the lemon and olive oil sauce bathing the zucchini. Delicious.

Our bill for the 3 dishes above and two glasses of wine came to 68 euros, which we paid using Visa. Reasonable cost for fine al fresco dining and excellent choice for a special occasion. Reservations are recommended, especially if you are requesting one of their best tables. Their hotel guests get priority in table choice, but if you have a reservation, you will likely get a better table than if you just show up. We just showed up at 7:30 (completely unplanned), and got the 2nd last table. Sun was setting around 8:20 at the end of July.

We enjoyed everything so much, before leaving we made reservations for our last night.

First things first...have you seen "Frozen"? Because there is a waiter here that sounds EXACTLY like the shop owner in the mountains. "Yoo Hoo! Mega sale in our Summer Department!"

Anyways, back to business.

My wife says this place had the "best risotto I've ever had". The Risotto was the only really option other than salad for us vegetarians, but the food we did have was incredible.Must book here around 7:00pm to see the stunning sunset.

I ate here three nights out of four and the food was some of the best I have ever eaten - the lobster on the last evening was superb - the only thing I would have wanted from the menu was a great range of dessert but the wine was excellent and the service faultless

I stayed at Fanari villas for 5 nights and it was amazing! The Fanari restaurant is equal to the accommodations. Great service, fantastic local seafood and wine, and of course, if you're there at the right time, the amazing view of the famous Oia sunset. Great for a special romantic dinner.
