Like most Americans, I showed up for dinner on the early side. 7:30pm. I ordered a seafood salad for 22 Euros. It was good. The menus said it came with a crab claw. No crab claw. Squid was good ok baby shrimp. One large shrimp. Overpriced for the quality.

Archipeligos Fira Santorini – We had a late lunch. From the restaurant, you have the iconic, panoramic view of Santorini and the harbor. The food and service were excellent. The menu included all the specialties of Santorini’s cuisine. My spouse ordered the small fish ( which is not for everyone) but contributed to his enjoyment of the restaurant.

Dinner at Archipelagos on our first night in Santorini did not disappoint! The service was friendly and attentive yet relaxed. The staff provided excellent recommendations for us. The local Atlantis white wine, Arabian bread, phenomenal seabass special, and chocolate cake were all divine. While you might think that based on the location it could be a tourist trap with so-so food, it is not! Coming from two foodie diners, this was some of the best food we had on our trip. This restaurant is also perfect if you’re looking for a view of the caldera and a spot to watch the sunset.

Thououghly enjoyed and would highly recommend recommend for dinner. The food was great, the service even better and to top it off, an outstanding view of the caldera, sunset and volcano...just spectacular. Classic greek food...greek salads and fish were excellent. You measure the quality of a great dinner by the memory several weeks afterward and I still replay the wonderful evening we had at Archipelagos. Did not want to leave out the great wines as well that made it just a complete evening. So...skip the overpriced meals with the "supposed best sunsets" in Oia and make sure you enjoy a fabulous meal here. Try and get a table closest the water for the best views/experience. Enjoy!!!

First of all this is not a budget place - none of the restaurants with this kind of view are.
That said we all (2 parents and 2 young teenagers) found the food, the service and the atmosphere to be excellent - well worth the around 130 Eur total bill.(main courses and beer/soft drinks only).
I had pork tenderloin souvlaki (medium done) which was perfectly grilled and tender almost to "pulled pork" type tenderness, but with just a hint more chewing resistance as it should. The peppers were also chock full of taste - clearly better tasting than the tavernas we otherwise dined at. My oldest son had pork fillet also medium done with a red wine sauce that was also both well presented and delicious. My wife commented "beautiful tastes" from her dish (think it was a chicken fillet) and even my youngest son enjoyed the pasta he chose (usually he's the most picky one).
Staff was attentive, serviceminded and informed us well about the menu.
Simply put it was a very enjoyable meal with an excellent view and a relaxing atmosphere - fond memory indeed.
