Really nice evening with a gorgeous view on the the famous Santorini's sunset. The service was really good, the waiters were attentive, competent and sympathic. We had a drink while watching the sunset and stayed to eat. The food is copious and, for a such well placed restaurant, at a reasonable price. The place is calm. We chose to try the greek part of the menu: the octopus wasn't rubbery, the moussaka excelent. The only reason I lowered the grade to 4 stars is for the wine: the home's wine wasn't good. If you are looking for a place to have a drink and eat at a reasonable price while watching the sunset, this place is a must.

I booked a table for me and my boyfriend for the sunset. Even though we arrived early, they were able to seat us - and in the perfect spot for the sunset! They took their time serving us so we had time to watch the sunset and take photos, etc. The prices are super good for the location considering theres a 5* hotel virtually next door charging a lot. It’s a lovely little spot to see the sunset in Fira. There’s even a sundeck to take photos of the sunset!

This restaurant is a hidden Gem! In my opinion dinner here has the best views in fira overlooking the sea & also the gorgeous Greek white buildings. The food is incredible. I have tried tzatziki in a numbers of places & Aris Restaurant have the tastiest one by far & give you freshly baked pita to go with it. The Staff are soo nice & friendly & service was excellent. I had to come back for more! Highly recommend to anyone visiting Santorini.

Arrived in Fira on Friday of Easter Weekend. While wondering Fira came across this place. It met everything we were looking for and the positive reviews on this site convinced us to make a reservation for dinner that evening. The evening was awesome from our table location for the sunset to the food and service. It ended up being the highlight dinner of our 10-day vacation in Greece. Can't say enough on how Vergelis and his wife made it a very special evening!

Great sunset view meal on our first night in Santorini :) booked a few weeks ahead to ensure we got a spot, was empty when we arrived at 6 and definitely saw some walk ins, but the majority of tables were reserved. Food and Cocktails both delicious and high quality, friendly and attentive service and that all important sunset view! The waiter wound back the canopy to allow everyone to get better pictures. This definitely felt like a quieter more secluded evening than the restaurants a bit higher up the hill. Prices were high as expected, but not unreasonable. We both had starters, mains, 2 cocktails each and 2 bottles of water for €130. We were given complimentary pitta bread and a shot when we paid the bill!

I would highly recommend this restaurant to those with severe food allergies. The service was excellent, all staff speak very good English and they took my allergies very seriously. It’s also very reasonably priced considering the portion sizes and comparing to other restaurants on the island.

Spectacular views made this meal memorable. The restaurant itself was a bit tired and lacked attention to detail. The food was ok, nothing too special but eating it under the Santorini sunset overlooking the water was worth paying slightly more for your average Greek food.

We visited twice for evening meal during our weeks trip to Santorini. The staff were really helpful in suggesting choices for my wife who is gluten and dairy free. My wife’s risotto was excellent, I had moussaka on my first visit and meatballs on second visit, both were excellent. The olives were delicious. Not the cheapest place to eat but very enjoyable, you can’t come to Santorini and worry about paying to eat out, just enjoy it. Would definitely visit again

Friendly staff, great food with amazing view! The restaurant is located a little bit off the busy area which is perfect. One can enjoy the view and the food without the constant noise of the crowd. The service is great, especially Vaggelis who was genuinely helpful and friendly. The food was amazing. The restaurant has an amazing view of the volcano which creates a great atmosphere.

I booked a couple of weeks in advance as it was the firework display on the volcano, and we were given a table with an amazing view. The service was excellent, and the food was simply presented but delicious. We had the entrecote and an octopus risotto both nice and a balkava for dessert. However, this was a little dry and needed to be served with ice cream. We had a bottle of red wine and some water and the bill came to 100 euros. This was the most expensive meal of the week, but the others were taken in Perissa, which is way cheaper, so for Fira, we thought this wasn't too bad.

What an amazing view and beautiful food, booked a table online the morning of our visit and were shown to our table on the edge overlooking the caldera , all I can say is wow!! The food was of high quality, generous portions, all served beautifully, cloth napkins and good quality crockery and glasses, we had stuffed vine leaves , breads and dips to start then seafood risotto and carbonara for our mains , we had a bottle of wine also which was delicious, we weren’t rushed . We watched the sunset whilst sipping our wine, just amazing 💕

Good place with amazing views. Seafood was fine (something was very fresh, something else a bit less so but definitely edible), service impeccable. Seafood rice was particularly good. Prices very much in line with Santorini - would surely be back.

Away from the main streets of Fira, this is a great place to go for a spot of lunch/dinner, with truly amazing views Great food and super friendly and attentive staff. I didn’t find the decor to be run down in the slightest (previous review). You have to remember you are on a Greek island, not in central London. It’s off the main streets of Fira too which means it’s a bit quieter than most of restaurants which is an added bonus!

While staying in a nearby hotel, we placed an order to 'take away' as we wanted to watch the sunset from our own patio. We both ordered the mushroom risotto with chicken and although the menu said it was made with truffle oil, we couldn't taste it (it was still really good, though). We were really hungry from our busy day so we thought the portion could be bigger ;o). I also ordered a Long Island Iced Tea at a cost of 15 euro but I think they forgot to put the booze in it. Very friendly staff when we ordered and then arrived to take away. The place was bustling with other customers.

What a spectacular view! Oh yeah. The food is pretty terrific too! My wife and I had dinner at Aris for our last night in Santorini. It didn’t disappoint. It’s right in the heart of Fira, so it’s simple to get to. I booked a table the day before and they were able to get us a table at the edge of the balcony. We had steamed mussels to start, which were delicious and fresh. My wife had grilled octopus for main, while I had a traditional Moussaka. Both were exceptional. My wife’s dish could’ve done with a bit more octopus, but it was still delicious. I had Baclava for dessert, while my wife had chocolate cake. The Baclava was enormous and could’ve been shared between us, but it was sweet, sticky, flakey and everything else you want it to be. If you’re in Santorini, this is a great little spot worth considering.
