Travel Guide: Santorini Food & Drink

1st Feb 2016 12:17pm | By Editor

Be prepared - compared to most of the other Greek Islands, Santorini can be quite expensive!

Food

Prices for food & drink will be highest in Oia & Fira - you're paying for the view! In the restaurants try the tomato-keftedes - deep fried patties made of the beautiful Santorini tomatoes with onion. Stifado - a casserole made with either beef, veal or rabbit, gyros - similar to a doner kebab, keftedes - fried meatballs with bread & onion, dolamdes - vine leaves stuffed with minced beef or falvoured rice, saganaki - grilled or fried cheese, briam - a rataouille made of aubergines, tomatoes, peppers & courgettes and of course a greek salad - fresh & delicious! 

 

Drink

The wine in Santorini is particularly good, the home-made wine - karafaki is non-bottled but available in most restaurants and shops - definitely worth a try! Ouzo is the local spirit with a strong aniseed taste usually served with water.

 

Water

As an island surrounded by the sea, the water on Santorini is provided from the desalination plant - with a salty taste to it, it'#s best to stick to bottled water.
