I know I’m not the only one who takes pictures of my food and drinks–as my daughter says, “the camera eats first!” So today I thought I’d share a few photos of what we ate and drank on our trip to Greece. I spent a lot of time researching restaurants ahead of time because we’re definitely what I’d consider “food tourists” and we were not disappointed with our choices!
I usually use Trip Advisor to find restaurants when we travel in addition to reading travel blogs.
Here are a few of our favorites from Santorini:
My daughter and I had cocktails at PK Cocktail Bar in Fira one night before dinner; it was the perfect place to watch the sunset. They have an entire section on their menu of cocktails made with local libations and everything we tried was wonderful.
Our first night in Santorini we ate at Pelican Kipos restaurant and had a meze meal (kind of the Greek equivalent of tapas or small plates). My daughter hasn’t sent me the pictures of our food yet since they’re on her camera, but check out the gorgeous garden setting:
They also have a wine cave underneath and do daily tastings; we didn’t do one but I can say that the local wine I had with dinner was lovely.
We stopped in Megalochori the next day for a snack at the Family Bakery and tried some of the best baklava I’ve ever had:
The pistachio horns (not sure if that’s the actual name) were fabulous–highly recommend!
Our last night in Santorini we ate at Kokkalo and I had a wonderful seafood orzo with saffron:
The next day we hiked along the caldera (Santorini is a volcanic island) before getting on the ferry to Athens. It was about 6 miles and we were starving afterward, so we stopped in at Yogi’s Gyros and devoured their gyros–we had lamb and chicken and they were some of the best I’ve ever had (they have vegetarian options too).
Moving on to Athens…we only had one evening there since the first night was spent on the ferry. We ate at Lithos which was good but not amazing, although the service was excellent. I don’t have any photos of that food. However, later the same night we stopped in at Fairytale, which is a cafe/bar for a late night cocktail.
The decor reminded me a bit of White Limozeen in Nashville (read about that visit here); it was designed for Instagram and my daughter took a ton of photos.
The cocktails were very good–and fun. Mine came out smoking because there was dry ice in it, and Annabelle had to mix her lavender cocktail at the table.
I’ll be back on Tuesday to share a few more photos of Santorini and Athens. Have a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by!
