Organic Cuisine

From the vegetable garden to the kitchen and then to our table.
Santorini offers agricultural produce of exquisite quality and incomparable taste due to both its unique climate and volcanic soil. The Greek philosophy regarding the restaurant is one of combining the use of local produce with biological cultivation. Therefore, the resort kitchen cultivates typical local varieties of fruit and vegetables without adding any artificial fertilizers, pesticides or growth accelerators. They strongly support the idea of organic nutrition, that’s why they offer guests with a wide range of Greek, traditional dishes using as many ingredients as they can from local produce, such as cherry tomatoes, white aubergines, local cucumbers (Katsounia), round zucchinis, string beans (ampelofasoula), grapes, figs, melons and watermelons. We an take a stroll into their vegetable garden and get acquainted with the renowned, dry varieties which grow on the island and taste the fruit of our fig trees which surround our bungalows.
