Selene, a restaurant in Fira led by a Michelin-star rated chef
Selene, with its 36 years of history, has been acknowledged over the years as a gastronomic and cultural landmark of Santorini. Constantly reinventing their contemporary Greek and Cycladic cuisine, your chief stewardess picked this restaurant to have an unforgettable evening with your friends and family. One of the first things you will notice when getting to the restaurant is the dining area, outdoors, in a beautiful courtyard. Start off your evening with a cocktail, served next to the fountain and authentic iron pergola!
Led by Michelin-star rated chef Ettore Botrini, Selene is entering its brightest phase yet. Inspired by the imposing aesthetics of the old monastery in which the restaurant is based and the colors of the island, chef Botrini introduces his culinary philosophy while honoring the legacy of Selene. The abundance of the Aegean Sea and locally sourced ingredients are the most important players in his kitchen. Created with passion, the menu is a celebration of authenticity, inspired by the local culinary heritage of Santorini. Its refined, contemporary spin on traditional recipes excites the senses with flavors and aromas that masterfully draw from the past in intriguing new ways.
Wine has always been an essential part of Selene’s contribution to complete your gastronomical experience. The wine list features some of the most sought-after wines of the world with a particular affection for the local wines of Santorini. The Selene Santorini Cuvée Privée reflects the love of the owners for authentic Santorini wine and is the result of blind tastings by their own master of wine Yiannis Karakasis, curator of the Selene wine list. Karakasis will tell you about the vineyards of Megalochori, and how the grapes give the wine its distinctive green tea and sage tones. The good news? You can purchase this wine at the restaurant, to bring home to relive this evening in Santorini over and over again!
Try the original greek cuisine in Imerovigli at the Athenian House restaurant
Unreal views, top chefs, impeccable service, friendly waiters and one of the best ambiances of the island. You can’t go wrong with The Athenian House at Imerovigli. The view from The Athenian House is not the only amazing thing about the restaurant. The venue combines the experience of a relaxed fine dining restaurant with a breathtaking view over the famous Skaros Rock, recognized worldwide as one of the most romantic and dramatic sunset spots.
Are you wondering what the logo of the restaurant is all about? During the Greek history the “tsolias” is an everlasting symbol of bravery and resistance. It is the soul of this soldier, combined with the beauty of his traditional outfit, that inspired the Athenian House concept.
The Athenian House aims to revive the richness of the gastronomy of Athens, restoring Greek cuisine to its original Mediterranean values, based more on olive oil, vegetables and regional ingredients, sourced from all over Greece. The restaurant uses new cooking technologies to transform traditional Greek dishes into gourmet creations with a modern twist. Dining becomes a memorable gastronomic journey throughout the different regions of Greece, while enjoying the vintage aesthetics of pure white porcelain, Victorian silverware and sparkling crystal glasses. The Greek owners, born and raised in Athens, have a sincere interest in safeguarding local and regional culinary traditions. Heritage is the inspiration behind each recipe and the team strives to create modern and refined dishes while honoring original recipes and using local ingredients from different parts of the country. Seasonal selected vegetables transcend the volcanic taste of the earth and the breezy air of the sea, extra virgin olive oil and citrus flavors blend Mediterranean aromas and herbs together, while fresh seafood offers a dive in the Aegean culture. Along with old time favorites such as moussaka and baklava, the menu is complemented every year with new dishes, where the country’s past meets the present, through fusion and new technologies.
The Athenian House wine list focuses on awarded Greek wines and boasts the best local and international labels. The restaurant currently owns one of the largest vintage collections of Santorini wines, with rare bottles of assyrtico, aidani or mavrotragano from the most renowned wineries on the island available.
