Welcome to the most beautiful balcony of Oia, the most romantic one of the Aegean and certainly one of the most exciting ones in the world. Red Bicycle, in the traditional settlement of the area, belongs to those must-visit businesses when you are found on the island.
The romantics of this world will definitely love it, the elegant people will fall in love with it, the sophisticated ones will include it in their list of favourite places, while the gourmets will be satisfied above and beyond. Its warmth will remind you of a friendly house, its decor will take you back in time and its views will leave you speechless.
Behind the genuine hospitality that you will feel here lies Hara Kourti, the owner of the restaurant. Everything that characterize Red Bicycle reflect her personality, with a key element that distinguishes her, apart from the high aesthetic quality, being the fact that she honours her visitors as guests at "her house".
Creative Greek cuisine is always tradition-based as our philosophy is to offer our guests a top-tier culinary experience– true representative of traditional Greek flavours. The experienced and talented chef Marios Tsouris (we've met him in restaurants like Spondi, Nobu, Solymar and the 3-star Lasarte restaurant of chef Martín Berasategui in Spain) is this year's head chef and has put together a menu that demonstrates both his solid workmanship as well as his undying enthusiasm for a modern Greek cuisine with strong connections to the past. Through a modern perspective, the traditional Greek cuisine meets today and wins over even the most demanding palates.
The sea urchin with truffle oil on black garlic bread, the octopus with black lentils, sweet onion sauce and orange aroma, the giouvarlakia with yellowfin tuna, Jerusalem artichoke purée, dill mayonnaise and grated quail egg, the squid tartar, salmon roe, kefir sauce and rice croquette, and finally the moussaka with foie gras, eggplant and metsovone mousse, are only some of the dishes on our degustation menu, which are expected to steal the spotlight and be included in the must-try of this season.
When it comes to desserts, “my Baklava” with homemade phyllo dough and baklava ice cream, caramelised nuts, a white chocolate ball and pepper granulated and star anise syrup is the ideal conclusion of an unforgettable dinner with breathtaking views.
