An old family bakery with a history dating over one century currently 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 and with respect to the local products we showcase the cuisine of Santorini.
Located in the most central part of Fira, the Caldera, just a few meters away from the main square and the cable car! We welcome you, here, at the restaurant FANARI, so you can 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 cuisine of Santorini, just like for any locale, consists of the local products. Its wines for many years now have been awarded the title VQPRD and this year its fava was given the status PDO, has been cultivated on the island for thousands of years and is a favorite delicacy at the island's festivals. Our local tomato is "explosive" and rich in taste. At our restaurant 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.
