I recently had the pleasure of dining at Lycabettus Restaurant in Oia, and it was nothing short of a magical experience. Perched on the edge of a cliff, this gem of a restaurant offers some of the most breathtaking views in Santorini, making it the perfect location for our anniversary celebration.
From the moment we arrived, the staff was warm, welcoming, and attentive. Their attention to detail was exceptional, and they effortlessly accommodated our dietary restrictions without any fuss. The entire team, including the sommelier, worked together seamlessly to provide an unforgettable dining experience.
We opted for the discovery menu and added both the lobster and wagyu selections, which proved to be an exquisite choice. Each dish was beautifully presented, and the flavors were a delightful exploration of culinary creativity. The gazpacho soup, lobster ravioli, Iberico pork belly, and short ribs were all standouts. And the desserts? They were simply "to die for" – an explosion of flavors, expertly balanced and satisfyingly light.
The wine list was extensive, and we were thrilled to find that most bottles were also available by the glass at a reasonable price. The sommelier's recommendations perfectly complemented our meal, elevating the entire experience.
As the evening progressed, we were treated to a gorgeous display of the illuminated town and the sea, a view that was even more enchanting from our table on the left side of the cliff. Do note that it can get a bit chilly and windy, but the thoughtful staff had plenty of blankets on hand. I would still advise bringing a jacket just in case.
To say that Lycabettus Restaurant exceeded our expectations would be an understatement. It was truly one of the best dining experiences we've ever had, rivaling Michelin-starred restaurants we've visited around the world. The combination of exceptional food, attentive service, and stunning ambiance makes Lycabettus a must-visit destination when in Santorini. I can't recommend it highly enough and eagerly anticipate our return, wherever this talented chef and his amazing team may be.
