Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Good food at a reasonable price, close to our hotel. Belly pork with fries and a truffle rub was excellent, nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Would recommend and visit again. Others in restaurant ordered pizza and they looked excellent, also offered takeaway.

Up towards the Firostefani end of the walk way Vanilia offers great food at good prices on the Caldera. Inside terrace seating with views and an open air rooftop dining option available. We ate here twice and both times the service and atmosphere were great....This has to be one of the more reasonably priced restaurants on the caldera still offering a view.More

If you value tasty, reasonably priced food, great service & lovely views, dine at Vanila! I had the pleasure of dining here for lunch and dinner while staying in nearby Firostefani. Authentic Greek & Mediterranean food has plentiful options on the menu, and the service...is reliable and professional.More

What a great casual spot. The service was friendly and prompt. After the last week in Paris and Paros we decided pizza sounded good. Well, it was good, in fact it was great. The fried calamari as well as the Caprese Salad were also top...notch. Vanilla is located directly on the Fira/Oia trail. There are great caldera views from the rooftop. a bit too windy for us on this occasion.More

We had an excellent experience at Vanilla restaurant. We pre booked a table and were seated overlooking the caldera as requested. The food was beautifully prepared and was some of the best food we’ve had in Greece. The wine was also delicious. The service was...brilliant and the waiters were kind, polite and attentive. Thank you very muchMore

Had a nice meal. Ordered 2 pizzas, calamari chips and salads between us to share. Food was nice and good portions. Good location and away from the main town. Good place to go to the three bells of fira. Nice views for sunset Did ask...for tap water and was told they can’t have it on the island!More

We ordered takeout. They charged us more than the prices on the menu “to cover extra costs like plastic boxes”… hmmm. Super rude service. The Greek dips and hummus were not good. The Greek salad was tasteless. There isn’t even a nice view. Why go...there?More

I do recommend this restaurant for a lunch or sunset dinner with the amazing view of the Caldera, but not it you are looking for a night time venue.
