We almost passed this cafe by without realizing it was there, since from the street it looked more like a private residence, accessed by several steps up to the door. If you choose to sit outside there is quite a large open air seating area...More

Very nice vantage point in a beautiful hilltop village. Definitely get a seat, a glass of wine and witness one of the world’s better sunsets

Smoothies and lemonade was made with fresh fruits, the crostini again with fresh ingredients. Very hard working, friendly ladies in the cafe, would highly recommend if you need a refreshment at the top of Pyrgos after the short hike..!

Nice rooftop with a good view for the sunset. The drinks are good but a bit pricey. The food is well priced but very limited. Nice place to just sit relax and unwind.

One of the coolest bars I’ve been to. We stopped in before a late dinner. It would have been a great place for sunset, but it was still great. Super relaxing and a perfect place for a glass of wine.

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.
