I looked at the menu and chose something that was a breakfast choice. But it was past the time for breakfast. Our great server asked the chef if he could prepare it for me, and he did! It was so good and it came with delicious bread and the best Greek Salad ever!

The location and views from the restaurant are one of the best on the island. The waiters were very professional and polite and the food was good, not great, but good. Zafora was the only restaurant we went to more than once during our 7 day visit.

After a long walk around the island, we had dinner in this restaurant. Ordered the shrimp with spaghetti for both of us and really enjoyed the flavor. The waiter was very friendly and the view is amazing. would strongly recommend this place.

Huge tourist trap. Food was not very good at all but the place is full because it is next to the gondola and has a nice view. We had the spinach pie and grape leaf rolls. The spinach pie was deep fried and burnt and the rolls had no taste. This is a place to grab 1 drink for the... More

Don't bother eating or drinking here as the staff are very rude and have a terrible attitude ... we had 1 drink and couldn't wait to leave in. You can take in the breath taking view on the walkway beside the restaurant ... DO NOT ENTER the restaurant ... you'll only be very disappointed!!

It is situated right by the cable car so we assumed it would be a bit high volume - however our food was reasonably priced, tasted great and we returned on our last day and had an even better meal - wonderful views, particularly from upper terrace

I only gave this place one star as it's impossible to give none. We had dinner here on our last night in Santorini. Up until now we had fantastic experiences with all staff and food in restaurants, cafes etc. The food bordered on inedible. I ordered mussels and ate one. The reason I didn't eat the rest was that I... More

The food and service are average. The price is average. The view is amazing in the night. But really average for everything else. Convenient but remember average is the key word here.

We ended up here because we waited too long to go and find dinner so we were hungry. After walking from Firostefani, we thought this place would be good but it is clearly geared towards tourists who want the view and location rather than good quality food. The portions are huge and simply bland. The wine served in small, boring... More

This place is in a prime position, great views, right by the cable car. It's expensive but not as expensive as some. The moussaka was really good, but the service was appalling. Rude, bordering on aggressive. My husband left a tip - I definitely would not have! Cannot recommend - we went to Mama's House the following evening and they... More
