Owned by well-known Santorini restaurateur Vassilis Nichteri, this Kamari Beach eatery operates from a glass-enclosed indoor eatery and more popular outdoor dining room situated under a white pavilion and canopy of olive trees. Charming farmhouse décor and subtle service disguise one of the island's top gourmet eateries with a kitchen pedigree unrivaled in Oia or Fira. Its location directly on the sea offer prime lunches and sunset dinners harked by honeymoon couples and in the know foodies that come in search of its locally sourced cuisine and renown chef.
A traditional Greek menu begins with mezza selection of impeccable white eggplant salad, mashed peas known as Santorini Fava and octopus in red wine. Salads are tossed with locally grown vegetables for daily fresh Santorini salad with tomatoes and homemade feta, or butter lettuce with arrangement of shellfish. Main course includes standouts like salted cod branded in tomato puree, crispy shrimp in sweet kantaifi sauce and pork mavrodafni with fresh mushrooms.
Locals tend toward a later hour, no earlier than 10pm during busier summer months.
