In the capital Fira, on the steps to the old port you’ll find Argo – an elegant and relaxing space which offers an inspired menu. This is a great place to try seafood and mediterranean flavours whilst enjoying a breathtaking view of the sunset.

“The food cannot be beaten. We split a Santorini salad. This is a must try – delicious. For dinner I ordered the shrimp pasta, and it was the best thing I have ever eaten. So fresh and sweet. My husband enjoyed his meal of mussels, clams, and pasta but wanted my shrimp pasta!” – james_4690
