Summer trends on food indicate that Chefs around the world are returning back to their roots when it comes to ways of approaching ingredients and their local cuisine.  In turn, the importance of Santorini’s  local produce, the attributed intense taste due to the rich lava soil result in gastronomic imaginative dishes,  with splashes of intense colors. This is the way we approach Greek Cuisine at our new Orkos Restaurant at the terrace of Dana Villas & Infinity Suites, expressing Greek food’s true nature.

1.  Chocolate art

Chocolate has always been our favorite comfort food. At Orkos Excel Gastronomy restaurant promises a creative palette of chocolate deserts with the use of contemporary flexi chocolate, placed and artfully decorated with exotic details, made to savour on our Grand pool terrace.

2. Attack of the bar snacks

3. Japanorama

Orkos Restaurant is following this Japanese trend and has infused raw elements and techniques in its Greek origin.  You will find tuna tataki amongst our a la carte menu, as well as other Japanese influences which elegantly excel the taste of Greek seafood. Our excitement for eastern influences will continue to grow.

4. Gut feeling

12. Levantine love-in

Arabic food is a trend and we cannot forget our Mediterranean Lebanese friends. Tabbouleh, sizzling garlic chicken and spicy hummus will always be on our favorite plate.  Ask our Chef at Orkos Restaurant for eastern cuisine options.
