Born and raised in Santorini, George Sigalas, owner of Above Blue Suites and Amber Light Villas welcomes thousands of guests from around the world each year to his island home. Here he shares his favourite places to eat and drink in Santorini- where visitors can experience great hospitality and taste fresh produce from all around the island!
Your favourite places to eat out?
There are many good spots but I would recommend Kira Katina in Ammoudi for seafood, Anogi in Imerovigli for traditional island dishes, and also Metaxi Mas in Pyrgos, for the famous Rakomelo.
Best brunch spots?
In the morning I like to head to TERA NERA in Perivolos as well as Galini Cafe Restaurant.
Finest gelato on the island?
For ice cream- Chill Box in Fira and Lolita’s Gelato in Oia.
For an aperitif or a cocktail?
In Fira, you will find the famous Enigma and Mamounia bars, where you can enjoy a drink and music, as well as PK and Tango Bar.
Coolest beach bars in Santorini?
Wet Stories and Yalos– you can’t go wrong at either!
Finally, must-try local dishes/delicacies?
Santorini Fava, Domatokeftedes, a traditional Santorini salad (with local wild capers), and fried white eggplant. Tip: don’t leave the island without having a glass of Ouzo, while enjoying fresh, local seafood by the sea.
