Me and my family went to Oia for the well-known sunset scenery. We tried to find a good restaurant as close as to the great view for dinner.(Since the usual time for sunset in summer season is around 8:30pm or you can check it by the local weather forecast). Then we came to Fanari due to it's location and the... More

Last night we went to this restaurant for a sunset dinner, we arrived and they didn't remember our booking (when we booked 5 hours earlier, in person) the menu was WAY too overpriced for the food quality and serving sizes, we were all left starving at the end, despite the waiter saying we would be fine.. I ordered the spring... More

This is primarily a place for drinks and light snacking - in comparison to the rest of Oia where you'll struggle to get a good sunset view if you're not staying for (overpriced) dinner. It's a bit further away from the traditional volcano view restaurants, but this means it's not as crowded. The sunset views are still stunning.

Go to this place for sunset, best spot I've seen. The food was fantastic, the staff a delight. It's not the cheapest but quality makes it worth it.

We sat towards the outside of the restaurant and had a wonderful view & wonderful food. My husband was impressed by the fish and I had a great lamb dish. The food & wine was all organic. We loved this restaurant & would go back

When I heard oia was the best place for sunset, I had no idea. And this gem is the perfect spot to watch it go down. We had one drink and watched the sunset. The staff was flexible and kind as we stayed to take 100 photos. The most beautiful sunset I have ever seen. The view was perfect!

The staffs were very friendly and they did recommend great food for us. The sunset view was spectacular. The price is on the high side because you are also paying for the impressive sunset view in Oia. The dessert was so -so.
