One will find a plethora of restaurants while strolling down Perissa beach in Santorini. Having not read any restaurant/bar reviews it was purely the visual aesthetics and atmosphere that drew me into Noma. The group was only looking for a single drink that night but we stayed for hours until we closed the bar. Thanos, a spectacular bartender, made exceptional drinks and became a great friend and our connection into Greek life and culture. We enjoyed multiple nights of drinks and conversation with Thanos and Kostas (the owner who has spent extensive time in the states) during our stay.
Noma serves quality food. Many of the ingredients are sourced locally from connections with family and friends. The burger I ate was one of the best burgers I have eaten anywhere in the world. Great food can sometimes be a luxury when traveling and I very much enjoyed this convivial experience.
The staff is very pleasant and accommodating without being overbearing.
Noma and the fine people that bring it together will always be one on my favorite memories in Greece.
