Incredible view of the famous Santorini sunset. The entire staff was pleasant and accommodating, and didn't try and gouge you on drinks or food like the rest. If you're in Thira, don't miss this great place to relax and watch the amazing sunset.

You can go here even if you just want to take in the finest views of the caldera. The seating is arranged just on the edge and would be better if you make a reservation.

Prices are relative and while the drinks here are expensive, you're also paying for the amazing perch to view the town and the sunset. It was great to step away from the crowds on the street to view our first sunset in Fira. Staff were...More

We didn't do that, because there weren't many people there. People used to see it above the bar.
