Welcome to Fanari restaurant, an old family bakery with a history dating over a 100 years now operates as a restaurant. A privately owned building situated at the Caldera, perhaps the only one in its area, offers delicious traditional tastes with many "creative" accents all coming from locally sourced produce of Santorini.
We are located in the most central part of Fira, the Caldera, just a few meters away from the main square. We welcome you to enjoy the traditional Greek cuisine but also unique local recipes, seafood and fresh fish. All this, while enjoying the view to the Caldera, in a friendly and warm atmosphere with prices that are 'within reach'.
The German Italian tourist guide DUMONT, as well as the LONELY PLANET MEDITERRANEAN EUROPE, recommends our restaurant for its breathtaking view, its traditional Greek cuisine and the high quality dishes at affordable prices. Ask for our menu for groups!
The wine very much acclaimed for many
Prestigious awards and certificates was cultivated on the island for thousands of years and is a favorite delicacy at the island's festivals. At Fanari restaurant we use the local tomato described as "explosive " and rich in taste. We use it sun-dried in order to add flavor to sauces and salads. The white eggplant broiled becomes sweet and light, while in combination with the Greek cheeses, basil and tomato sauce, becomes one of the tastiest and flavorful dishes you will ever try. The humble zucchini, boiled, fried or as zucchini balls with dill and feta cheese will thrill you. Mint, a favorite herb, adds flavor to tomato balls, perhaps the island's tastiest dish, worthy of being called gourmet.
The sweets are simple yet imaginative. The Santorini pudding has the fragrance of cinnamon, while the famous sweets of the island, the "meletinia", made of skim milk cheese and scented with mastic and vanilla, are a must for every household during Easter.
We look forward to your visit, please follow the website link below for further information about our restaurant and photos which alone will want you to visit.
