I took some drinks with my girlfriend here. The view from this place is very nice, and the staff was quite friendly. Cannot really talk about the food, but the drinks were ok; pricey though.

A great little find right at the top of the village in Pyrgos. Not a huge menu and slightly expensive, but the sunset view more than makes up for this.

Had a drink overlooking the island from the terrace. Probably one of the best views of the island you can get. Food was snacks rather than a meal but very tasty. We had meatballs and a crostini.

Very overpriced for what it is. The terrace view is nice depending on where you can get a seat. Beers for €7 cheapest -- most drinks were much more expensive than this -- quite expensive considering the average prices in Greece!

In the beautiful city og Pyrgos you will arrive at the top and you must stop at Franco's for a typical italian espresso with one of the best view of the island! Good prices, friendly staff, amazing view and service.

A lovely cafe at the top of the town; the rooftop terrace was very peaceful with instrumental music and great views. The Meze sharing plate was very tasty.

It's 7-10 minutes walk from the main square , and it's not straight road, a bit uphill with many steps, so i would say it's difficult . the restaurant also has steps to the terrace. .

It is a Coffee-Bar done with respect to the Greek tradition on the top of Pyrgos hill.We serve a selection of coffee, fresh fruit drinks, milk shakes, ice creams and desserts.Some appetizers and light food are available.Aperitifs and cocktails are our pride: Mr. Franco, the owner, has a collection of international awards for the quality of his drinks and for the style of his management.Warning! Because of its style and music (classical and retro only) Franco's Café is not addressed to everybody, but to people with a certain sensitivity.
