THE place to be

Enjoy the startling volcano view – the dread of its latent activity, and the scale of its beauty.


Volkan on the Rocks is a café, cuisine, and cinema with a unique view of the Caldera in Santorini.

To make your short visit as memorable as possible, we chose our menu with a great deal of care. We have been making wine for 150 years, and we also brewed 4 local beers for you to choose from. Savour our authentic food (powered by ERGON, a Greek company with delis and café/cuisines all around the globe) paired with our drinks, and enjoy the sunset, as if it were your last.


For Days & Nights

Coffee, Bar bites or Dinner, our locally inspired menu showcases the best of Santorini and our islands.

The best of Santorini, with a flawless view 1000 ft. above sea level. The centre of a spectacular world.

Celebrate in the private sanctuary of cypress, bougainvillea, capers and jasmine that adorn our sheer rock face. On our terraces, a wedding canopy is at the centre of a magical world. Our team can craft a bespoke experience. Use our menu for the perfect dining or cocktail event. For parties that rage into the night, retreat to our winery tunnels to dance till sunrise.

Private Parties

We have a unique and acoustically insulated venue - a network of spacious tunnels deep within the cliffs.

Located only metres away, in the Nomikos Cultural Centre, we can guarantee an uninterrupted night of merriment. In case of inclement weather, it also serves as a backup location.

Large Dinners

Santorini is blessed with a distinct soil, climate and sea, that ensure award winning wines and unique produce, including artisanal cheeses and salted fish.

Our menu reflects our island’s centuries old culinary tradition. Mouth-watering delicacies are authentically paired with our selection of fine Santorinian wines. Try our wine flight with a tasting menu.
Compliment locally sourced food with our very own Volkan beer of Santorini,  our Volkan on the Rocks Aperitivo, or our vineyard’s 20 year aged Vinsanto. We also have a famous selection of cocktails and champagnes.

Escape from the cliff side crowds to an amazing Contemporary Art Gallery.

Zoumboulakis Gallery continues to present noteworthy exhibitions by Greek and foreign artists. After being recently renovated, the Gallery continues its course in the Contemporary Art scene, selecting and proposing works by younger as well as established artists, offering its steady look and living up to the expectations of its history.

Pizza & Gelato Place

The café offers the ideal spot to rest, catch one’s breath and take in the uniqueness of Santorini.

It is powered by ERGON, a Greek company with delis and café/cuisines all around the globe. During the day, you can enjoy your coffee/brunch or lunch/dinner with the best view on the island. And then, the majestic sunset of Santorini. At night, an outdoor cinema opens. Make your reservation and enjoy a once in a lifetime experience, at a place that will ignite all your senses.

Restaurant with a careful menu selection, traditional dishes paired with rich, tasty wines, sunsets and a breathtaking view: All these can be experienced here at once.
