'Selene' restaurant was established in 1986 in Fira, Santorini by Yiorgos and Evelyn Hatziyannakis. Our aim was from the very start, to show and promote the local products along with the local cuisine hoping that this will enable us to transmit to our guests a taste of the island's culture. The success that we have had all those years not only within Greece but also worldwide, has encouraged us to continue with cooking lessons, catering for weddings and conferences and various gastronomical events. Since 2010 'Selene' restaurant has moved location from Fira to Pyrgos. Pyrgos is one of the most beautiful and well-preserved villages of Santorini built around a medieval castle located in one of the highest points of the island offering magnificent views. What is mostly important for us however is that Pyrgos village, and the restaurant's location especially, lies next to the famous vineyards and the valuable farmland of Santorini.

Great fine dinning place!

I would really recommend this place for a fine dining experience on the terrace watching the sunset. The staff are friendly and very accommodating to your tastes. Just tell them what you like!

Selene was fantastic. When making your reservation, request the outdoor table closest to the sunset for a more unobstructed view...we literally watched the clouds pass by and the sun setting. The food was lovely - a little different, but very good. Service was amazing. Highly recommend an evening here, make sure you make a reservation.

This is certainly a high end restaurant. They conduct cooking lessons too. We went to the bistro for a late and light lunch. The view from the bistro is awesome. The restaurant to my knowledge is open only for dinner and requires reservations. You can tell that the food is well crafted from local produce to create interesting tastes to... More

I was very happy with my experience in the fine dining section of Selene, but this is not a Michelin star restaurant and if you're expecting such then you will be disappointed. The views of the sunset while eating on the terrace was quite memorable and the service was absolutely excellent! I was very happy with the champagne and wine.... More

What is right about this place? perhaps the view. This is not Santorini. Its pretentious, stupidly expensive, and I left hungry. instead make sure that you eat at Cava Alta a few minutes away. ( read their reviews) The food was so small and ridiculous we actually laughed, until we got the bill. If you want "Sea air foam" with... More

We had Selene for dinner while in Pyrogos. We had heard wonderful things about it and the menu was promising. The food was good, but arrived cool and wasn't as good as some of the other places we dined. Overall, it was good but not as good as expected.

It's a shame to only rate Selene as average. We ate in the fine dining part of the restaurant which is touted as one of the island's best eateries, we'd heard great things and read enthusiastic reviews. We had a good time but unfortunately it didn't completely live up to expectation for us. Selene is in a beautiful setting, make... More

What a fantastic place to visit. It is not only a restaurant but a place that offers cooking classes. We were unable to partake in cooking classes but this is the place I had my lesson on Santorini cherry tomatoes. Just pure sweetness!

We visited as part of a group tour of 20 people. They serve local ingredients in creative modern dishes. They were very welcoming and we had delicious meal, with choices for each menu. I had a very creative pork belly, with a delicious coffee mousse for dessert. They also have a Providore section, as well as a more up market... More
