What is a luxury charter without the privilege of indulging your taste buds, surrounded by the most beautiful scenery?  You can go for locally grown ingredients bringing the tastiest flavours to the simplest of dishes. Or savour complex masterpiece creations. Greek cuisine is an exciting culinary adventure on every plate.

Efisia (Mykonos, Cyclades)

Efisia’s origin is physis, the Greek word for nature. Sheltered in a rough-hewn alcove, the restaurant finds the perfect balance between simplicity and gastronomy. Our recommendation is the lamb cutlets with a demi-glacé reduction and smoked aubergine.

Selene (Santorini, Cyclades)

Selene is a 33 year old institution that can be found just a few hundred metres from the Hatzidakis winery. Its outdoor terrace occupies one of the most scenic spots on Santorini. Picture yourself enjoying a stunning view over the shining water as you savour the taste of the restaurant’s traditional local cuisine. And if you want explore the secrets of Greek culinary tradition, the restaurant holds regular cookery courses, so that you can give it a try.

It’s also an inspiration for his culinary philosophy of simple, subtle and natural flavours.
