When enjoying a superyacht charter around Greece and its beautiful islands make sure you spend some time on land to enjoy some of the best waterfront restaurants.
Here are five eateries not to miss:
1. Santoro, Santoríni
Whitewashed walls perfectly contrasts with the deep blues of the cloudless sky and iconic church domes — around every corner lies a picture-perfect postcard moment. However, Santoríni isn’t just a feast for the eyes, your stomach will also find this Greek island particularly pleasing.
Located at one of the most luxurious hotels on the island, Grace, the Santoro restaurant benefits from a jaw-dropping view over Skaros Rock and the submerged caldera’s sea. Opt for a table on the level below the inviting infinity pool and you’ll be blessed with front row seats for the famous Santoríni sunset.
If the superb a la carte menu leaves you feeling indecisive, then you have no choice but to opt for the tasting menu. Designed to take you on a culinary experience that combines tradition with contemporary flavours, it is exactly what you’d want to eat in this breathtaking waterside setting.
The seabass ceviche is an explosion of flavours — the fresh taste of the sea mixed with zingy citrus fruits and the earthy sweetness of marinated artichoke is a winning combination. While surf ‘n’ turf isn’t typically associated with high-end restaurants, we wholeheartedly recommend the pan seared octopus with fillet steak. The octopus was fresh and tender with a subtle smokiness and the steak melted in the mouth, complementing each other perfectly. In fact, every dish on the tasting menu is cooked to absolute perfection under the watching eye of Chef Spyros Agious.
The tasting menu can be wine paired for an additional cost or, alternatively, you can’t go far wrong by washing it down with a bottle of crisp Assyrtiko from one of the many local vineyards, a favourite being Gaia Estate.
