My wife and I have been staying at the neighboring Tzekos Villas for the past three days.

Our first day, we stopped by for a quick bite. I had the Santorini salad (cucumbers, tomatoes, onion, anchovy and a wonderful yogurt dressing) and my wife had a bowl of Gelato. Along with the 1/4 liter of local wine, the tab was just under €25. We returned for dinner that evening; I had the lamb shank and my wife had pasta. The total bill was less than €45, including tip and a large beer.

The staff was great, though maybe a tad slow with the check. The patio gets a little cold when windy, but the view more than makes up for it. Definitely give it a shot, especially if you get tired of climbing the same stairs over and over again!

"Fira" is the capital of the island.It is built on Cycladic architecture.The volcano’s view from the Ellis restaurant and it is magnificent. A walking in the narrow streets and a cup of coffee in an open-air cafe, are some things you will remember forever the food Elli's chef made for us.

We were walking into Fira from the south, were hungry, and saw the signs for the restaurant. It was our first day on the island so we didn't know Ellis wasn't where the "action" is. All we saw was this place with a spectacular view and plenty of open tables to sit and enjoy it. The menu was standard greek tourist fare and I was assuming the kitchen would just be phoning it in-the location is going to ensure they'll always have business no matter what they put out. We were so thrilled that everything we ordered was well prepared-especially the moussaka. Our waiter's English was not as good as at most restaurants we visited, but he could not have been more pleasant and caring. i recommend making Ellis one of your stops.

Awesome highlights of our 4-night Santorini visit were our TWO dinner experiences at Ellis Restaurant. In addition to having a stunningly beautiful sunset view of the caldera -- with multiple outdoor patios -- the restaurant's interior was simultaneously simple and dramatic. Since the island's busy season hadn't quite started, we had the pleasure of getting to know our hosts, who treated us like queens. Chef Kyriakos Tselios and his lovely wife joined us after dinner, and he told us about his and his brother's experiences starting their restaurants and learning their mother's and father's AMAZING traditional recipes (the moussaka and tzatziki were to die for!). We had such a fabulous time that we went back for our last night with a great couple from our hotel -- they had ALSO eaten there at least one other night.
