This is by far the most wonderful restaurant on the island. The view is absolutely stunning. The service was excellent and the food was wonderful. We will definitely visit again.

We were referred to the Sphinx by the staff at the hotel where were staying. We asked for a place that would have a both good food and good views. The Sphinx was quickly recommended. We were not disappointed. We relied on the waiter to help us make our choices for both dining and drinking. He was spot on for both. Our table was at the edge of the outdoor dining area affording us beautiful views of the Caldera. All told it was a real treat in all areas.

We went to Sphinx for our wedding rehearsal dinner the night before our wedding.
We had our own private area with uninterupted views over the caldera.
We had 36 guests attending and everyone had a fantastic night.
Julia, the owner, ensured everything ran so smoothly. We first met her in May on our visit to Santorini and I have to compliment her on her excellent communications with us and organisational skills. She set the private area up beautifully with flowers and lanterns on all the tables.
The food was excellent - especially the cod and the Greek delights for dessert - (delicious!) as was the service.
Highly recommended!
Thank you!

This place is right off of Gold Street and is a good place to watch the Fira sunset. I ordered the chicken with tarragon sauce. It was very delicious and was a big portion, which is good because it was a bit pricey. I would recommend asking for a couple of plates. Order two dishes and SHARE. The sauce became heavy, so quit while you're ahead. Only eat a quarter of it. My friend's risotto had a thick and heavy consistency. I would only recommend this place for the sunset view.

Calling the day before, getting "the last table with view" and learning the same morning that the "annual firework on the vulcano" was that night, what could we expect more than excellent food and service.
We will come back next time we are on Santorini.
