Santorini’s Top Tables Summer 2016
Written By Lena Harizopoulos
- Best Fine Dining:
Anthos Restaurant at Kirini Suites & SpaThis is definitely Santorini’s hottest table at the moment.
Promising young chef Haris Nikolouzos has composed a fine Greek revisited menu – one of the very few in the country – of Relais Chateaux standards.
Starting with a very impressive welcome the chef has in store all sorts of surprises that constitute a fine Santorinian dining experience.
From the dreamy tomato garden, his signature spinach “pie“, the foie gras teamed with Greek coffee, the “oh so” refined scallops with fava beans up to the most va va voom dessert on the island – this dinner certainly is the finest on the island at the moment.
Ideal for: foodies and romantic dining with a great view.
- Best Romantic Dining:
Grace Santorini Hotel ImerovigliChef Spyros Agious guarantees a fine Mediterranean dining experience with one of the island’s best wine lists while looking at the hotel’s majestic cliff view.
You will love the great marriage of Santorinian classics with Mediterranean references that have been revisited in a fine yet very inventive manner.
Not to be missed.
