Asyrtiko, the only authentic wine restaurant in Santorini, offers a dining experience that should not be missed. Housed on the first floor of an old mansion dating back to the 60s, this spot boasts wonderful views of the caldera. Its atmospheric terrace which overlooks the other side of the island and the mansion's garden - quite possibly Fira's only garden - is one of Santorini's most beautiful spots.
The highly creative and inspired chefs, Nikos Pouliasis of Koukoumavlos and Vasilis Zacharakis of Nyhteri, join forces to make up a menu that satisfies even the most demanding visitors. The carefully compiled menu honours the delicate Greek cuisine and local products, whilst infusing it with Mediterranean influences.
Its central location, Fira, is undoubtedly one of its major pluses, as is the updated wine list that will gain your admiration and appreciation. Askyrtiko organises wine tasting and a visit to the restaurant's cellar upon request.
