Perfect spot to celebrate being in Pygos and enjoying time on the island of Santorini! Prompt friendly service and perfectly executed concoctions. We will miss our visits to Franco's to enjoy sunset along with the chats with Demetrius. The food looked fabulous, though we only...More

Rooftop terrace cafe with views over the whole island. Big toasties, bit pricey. Can be very windy - hang on to your hats!

Drinks are pricey, nothing special. It's a bit of a hike to get up, the view is nice but there are plenty of other places with better view.

Well worth a drink and snack to enjoy the views at Francos. It's quite a walk to the top but worth it. I enjoyed a Franco spritz which was very refreshing after the climb

One of the best places to watch the sun go down. It’s a little on the pricey side and there was a stray cat who the English couple beside us kept feeding the complementary cheese. They were asked not to by the staff in fairness...More

Franco's Cafe is by far the best place to view the gorgeous Santorini sunset. It is a casual cafe with fabulous welcoming staff. Small menu of appetisers, we shared the meatballs & the Santorini platter - both fresh & delicious.

Great views of the island although it gets busy just before sunset , so get there a little early to get a table at the front with the best views. Best Bloody Mary ever!

We enjoyed drinks and a small platter with tapas type food. Very good. The service is excellent and the rooftop position the best on Pyrgos.

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.
