Perched high above the water and snuggled next to Athina Luxury Suites, Esperisma combines breathtaking views with an incredible menu to satisfy any palate. At Esperisma, we continually strive towards culinary innovation and creativity to offer our guests an unforgettable gastronomic experience.
Our all-day bar with our signature cocktails created by the famous mixologist Mr.Papavramopoulos is an experience to live!
Our Mediterranean and Greek cuisine is inspired by the freshest local ingredients available, and Chef Zacharakis is a master in creating delectable dishes that delight our guests. From fresh, vibrant salads and main dishes made with the highest quality meats and seafood, to decadent desserts, every bite is designed to impress.
At Esperisma, we believe that our menu is rivalled only by the setting. When in Santorini, a visit to Esperisma is more than just a meal—it is the opportunity to partake in an unforgettable culinary affair in an amazing
setting.

    Beautiful sunset view from the restaurant. Food was great and the drinks were fabulous. I had the Captains Chest which was one of the best bourbon cocktails I’ve had. A little pricey and service a bit slow, but overall glad we went to dinner at the restaurant.

    Absolutely incredible experience from start to finish. The view and ambience take the cake. The cocktails and crudo were phenomenal. My husband had the short rib which was delicious and I had a white fish that was very good as well. Service was wonderful all evening and no one tried to rush us for our incredible spot. What a perfect evening!

    We loved the food and ambiance of Espersima! Great place to catch the sunset or see the town of Fira light up for the evening. However, our service was lacking. We waited for a while to be greeted and seated for several minutes, had to ask for menus to order several times, sat for another long time to actually order... And so the evening went. The restaurant was also not full. Overall, I don't think we'd recommend eating here again, but grabbing a drink before dinner is a great option

    This was by far our best meal in Santorini. I got the lamb and my wife got the short rib. We also got a spinach salad to start. Drinks were also amazing. You can taste the freshness of every ingredient.

    The food, the view and cocktails are amazing! This restaurant definitely became one of my top recommendations in Santorini. Esperisma is the type of place where every last detail of a visit is taken care of, the food is very tasty, the presentation of the dishes, the attention of the staff, innovative and special dishes; but what stood out and what would bring me back were the cocktails, the best cocktails I´ve ever had.

    Ended up here mostly because it was available on OpenTable, after having a hard time finding reservation online. We were pleasantly surprised because it ended up being an amazing restaurant. The view, the service, in the ambiance were spectacular. The only thing that was better was the food. Every dish was delicious, and we are snobby foodies from New York City 😂

    After an initial confusion with my reservation which gave us a bit of headache, we visited the esperissma restaurant at 19:00 for a perfect sunset experience. The restaurant is located with a privileged view of the caldera and those who look for the perfect sunset picture won’t regret a dinner here. We started our experience with gin-tonics served with fine herbs and very well compensated flavors. After some minutes enjoying our drinks with great views we ordered an spinach salad, accompanied of cheese, peppers and philo pasta. Out of all the plates, this was the most “normal” one, good but not special. We continued with a perfectly cooked lamb. From my point of view, the chef masters 2 things, the preparation of meat and he philo pasta (which is present in multiple dishes). It is remarkable that all the plates were balanced and not heavy at all. To finish we ordered 2 desserts, one with cream, orange and philo pasta and another one with lemon.We are not very fan of the Greek repostery but these 2 desserts were really a good choice. The service is excellent, they were really kind and helped us to make the perfect picture for an unforgettable sunset experience. Last but not least, the prices are very reasonable in comparison to the quality they offer and to be honest we paid more in other fine dining restaurants getting a worse experience. All in all I would definitely recommend this restaurant and I would come back!

    Want for dinner to Esperisima restaurant. We stayed 10 days in Santorin, enjoying very good restaurants and sunset views. Esperisima was from far the moat complete place we visited. The food is just excellent, the view is unforgettable and the service couldn't be better. We highly recommend Esperisima, best Santorini spot for us !

    Great experience only complaint is that the food wasn’t seasoned enough (just a personal preference) and the food didn’t come out hot, it was luke warm and because of the wind it got cold within a minute.

    The food was exquisite. The scenery was unmatched and the wait staff was aware and extremely accommodating. Compliments to the chef, the food experience was one of the best our lives. The mesh of flavors didn’t disappoint and kept us wanting more. Will return if we ever step foot in Santorini again.
