Food is amazing as is the view of the sunset over the caldera. Ah, but the service and the general ambiance were truly outstanding! And the wine recommendations by the staff were first rate! After the first night with our son and his lady, just...More

We were very excited to try what we heard repeatedly was the 'best restaurant on Santorini...perhaps in all of Greece'. Sadly it was a disappointing experience. *Note: we dined at the formal restaurant, not the bistro. The menu sounded very good, but the execution did...More

My husband and I visited this restaurant by recommendation of a friend. The food was fantastic. Service was also beyond our expectations. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

After reading much review on this and suggested by our friends we made a booking for this place and went. Though the place was a bit far off, but it was worth going there. It was a wonderful experience.

They have some really good food. Quite a few options on their menu for vegetarians as well. Make sure to get a reservation because even though I didn't know of too many people who knew this place, the place was packed and is quite popular....More

Attentive staff with excellent knowledge of menu and wine list. I started with squid fava risotto followed by Aegean cod. Whilst the latter was excellent, moist and flavoursome, the former was distinctly bland. The squid was hidden under a mound of local greens and looked...More

'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.
