We made reservations at Character for a romantic sunset dinner on the balcony overlooking the sea. The staff brought us to our beautiful table where we felt like the only people in the place. Our waiter was wonderful and provided some excellent suggestions for food and drinks. We had a margherita pizza and a mushroom and truffle ravioli that were phenomenal! The views from Character’s balcony tables cannot be beat. Do yourself a favor to avoid all of the crowds headed to the cliff’s edge and escape to Character for a relaxing evening with breathtaking sunset views.

Overall we had a lovely evening, however, I do not recommend the bruschetta, which is served on regular bread (therefore, quite soggy). Booked a table for sunset that same morning and got placed at a very nice table with stunning views of the sea and sunset. Very attentive staff. Prices seemed reasonable, too. We ordered the bruschetta as an entree and it turned out to be sliced bread (the one you would usually eat for breakfast) with some melted cheese and a slice of salami. Had nothing to do with what I define as bruschetta, unfortunately. We also ordered pasta and pizza, both were quite nice. If you come here for the view, you’ll have a good time, but I probably wouldn’t come back for the food.

I’m glad we stumbled across this Italian restaurant among the tiny streets of Fira. The dinner time views were amazing, the food delicious, and exceptional service that allowed us to take our time. Cost was very reasonable for the level of food.

Had some lovely pizza here, accompanied by stunning views! Was probably the cleanest and well kept restaurant we walk past while going down the main view path. Staff were super nice and one offered to take our photo for us 👍🏼 Would 100% return, obviously paying a premium for the lovely surroundings.. and the view, but worth it! Was like a restaurant plucked straight out of Oia, but in Fira, if you get me 😂
