As some of you may know, I have spent 6.5 years living on the beautiful island of Cyprus.
Ever since I moved to Spain, I have been dreaming about their fresh village salads, feta cheese, fresh olives and dip selections with freshly toasted pitta bread. It sounds simple, but the ingredients are what makes simple food absolutely delicious.
I am happy to report I have found a local place, where you can experience a bit of Cyprus on your plate too!
Restaurante Santorini is tucked away between other restaurants next to the Paseo Maritimo, at the ground floor of an appartment block.
Don’t let yourself judge the book by its cover – even though it looks similar to the rest of the restaurants on the main strip, this one is not a tourist trap like most of the rest.
The menu is quite simple and full of Greek staple dishes, many of which I recognize from Cyprus (and the surpsing addition of pizza menu which was welcomed by my son!).
We have now visited twice, and each time ordered salads with dip selection, and also tried their Pil Pil prawns and feta with beetroot salad. If you ever want to taste a proper Greek salad, you have to come to this place!
The dips, salads and everything we tasted was absolutely delicious, served by a friendly staff! We have not tasted anything from the meaty menu (I leave that to my husband), but from the reviews online it seems like those menu options also get glowing reviews.
If you fancy yourself a bit of a change of cuisine, give this place a try! I will be happy to report on more dishes once I return for another dose of fresh Greek cooking.
