“Gorgeous scenic views of the Caldera”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2013

Franco's bar offers really stunning views of the Caldera and the small volcanic island, in a very relaxed atmosphere. Magnificent classical music is playing throughout the day and night, which really blends well with the gorgeous views and overall atmosphere. Drinks are quite pricey, but we liked the overall ambiance and great view.

Great view of the caldera, and the sunsets. Music and extremely comfortable chairs for viewing the caldera and sunset. A must see!

“Great place for a drink.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2013

Franco's Bar is best visited AFTER sunset. Crowds are less and you can have a private conversation and relax. Drinks are wonderful. Comfy sling beach chairs with umbrellas are just the ticket after a long day. Can't miss this place...just steps from Hotel Atlantis on cliff side.

“Lovely bar - but pricey!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2013 via mobile

Lovely cocktail bar with classical music playing. You have the choice to sit on reclining deck chairs at the front or little tables and chairs. All have lovely views. Be prepared to pay an average of 14€ a drink though... So only stop by for one if you're on a budget as we were!
