Head over to Tango Champagne & Cocktail Bar for great cocktails and iconic views over the caldera. Tango features a sculptural ceiling that lights up to the rhythm of house music, attracting a vibrant crowd that tends to get busier as the night unfolds, finally closing its doors at 4 am.

Santorini Restaurants: Where to Eat

Santorini knows how to treat your taste buds too. If you're looking for something affordable yet undeniably delicious, fret not - there are plenty of options available!

Restaurants in Fira

Head to 1500 BC to enjoy stunning cliffside views over Fira and fresh seafood for great value, this place is every food lover’s dream. For a taste of authentic Greek cuisine at unbeatable prices, we love Mama’s House. Enjoy regional wine in a friendly atmosphere that perfectly captures the local scene. Our final recommendation for a restaurant with a view over Fira is the award-winning La Colline Restaurant. Though a bit pricier, the fantastic reviews speak for themselves. Specializing in experimental French cuisine, this formal dining experience offers a unique culinary adventure. Don't miss their signature Volcano Dessert - it's a must-try.

Restaurants in Oia

Oia, known for its slightly quieter ambience than other parts of town, offers a more tranquil setting for exploring and dining. For a memorable dining experience with a picturesque backdrop, Sunset Ammoudi is the ideal choice. Set in a tiny fishing port about 300 steps below Oia town, the great variety of options and scenic vibes make it a worthwhile experience. Be sure to stop at the popular Thalami too to indulge in their super famous pasta and lobster - yes it lives up to the hype! Nestled in the heart of Oia, this place truly shines, offering stunning sunsets that you won't want to miss.

And last but not least, we highly recommend checking out the great value KooKoo! This place is a hidden gem with a warm and inviting atmosphere. Plus, it won't put a dent in your wallet, making it the perfect spot to enjoy some yummy eats while soaking in the charm of Oia.

Santorini Dining Experiences

If you’re looking for a truly special experience, indulge in a delightful wine-tasting experience at Kapari Wine Restaurant, where you can savour the finest selection of Greek wines amidst a backdrop of exceptional cuisine and impeccable service. Or, why not explore the vibrant culinary scene at Ftelos Brewery Santorini - MALT Restaurant, where Mediterranean New Age Cuisine takes centre-stage. Each dish is meticulously crafted to complement the extensive selection of craft beers brewed onsite.

Dance the Night Away: Fira Clubs

Keep in mind that most bars in Santorini play music late into the night. So, if you're in search of lively crowds and vibrant music, exploring Santorini's bar scene could be a fantastic option for you too. But if you're in the mood for a proper night out, Fira is the place to be and its club scene delivers!

Look no further than the legendary Koo Club for lively crowds and an outdoor club experience featuring a DJ spinning club bangers. With its palm tree-adorned setting and ample space to dance the night away, it's the perfect spot for an unforgettable evening. Town Club also offers a fun experience with cheap drinks and reggaeton beats complete with dance cages - a favourite among tourists. Dance on tables at Murphy's Bar or do too many shots at Enigma Club - a blue-lit ambience, arches, and diverse music selection make Enigma a standout choice.

Santorini Beach Bars

Euro summer nights in Santorini mean epic beach parties. Kamari Black Sand Beach is a striking destination with its volcanic black sand and beautiful blue waters. At Albatross Beach Bar, the party doesn't stop until 4 am, offering signature cocktails and a beach menu against the backdrop of a mesmerizing sea view. With outdoor seating perfect for catching the sunset, snag a sunlounger whilst enjoying the music of residential DJs. Another fantastic option on Kamari Beach is Love Boat Bar, where you can unleash your inner rockstar with karaoke sessions. Offering affordable prices for both drinks and food, its tropical decor sets the perfect backdrop for a memorable night out. Love Boat Bar closes at midnight, ensuring you have plenty of time to enjoy the festivities.
