After a few days in Athens, we grabbed our things and headed for the island of Santorini.
We got on a early – and I do mean early morning flight. Thank goodness the flight was quick.
As a reward for hopping on the early flight we were able to watch the sunrise as we headed to Oia.
After arriving at our at our hotel, we found out that there had recently been a blackout and our reservation was lost! Oh not a good way to start off!
However, a nearby hotel was able to accommodate us.
Our room still wasn’t ready at this hotel since we had arrived on the early flight so we had the chance to explore Oia.
We stumbled on a little place with an amazing view….
Simple but understated…
And the food…
Baked right inside the restaurant in this ancient Greek oven
Grilled octopus – perfectly cooked – not chewy or rubbery
Oven baked fish with roasted vegetables – you can almost taste the ocean!
Of course the hubby cannot end a meal without his favorite dessert – chocolate soufflé! To die for…I might have a bite or two!!!
Delicious Santorini sweet wine digestif
The owner and chef were so amazing – the chef was a little shy. But these two have plenty to smile about as the food, service and ambience was spot on!
When you go to Santorini, check out Floga restaurant.
With our bellies full we headed back and to enjoy more of this…
This is the life…
