Selene, with its 36 years of history, has been acknowledged as a gastronomic and cultural landmark of Santorini for defining and constantly reinventing Contemporary Greek & Cycladic Cuisine.
Led by Michelin-star rated Ettore Botrini, the most important Greek Chef of our time, Selene is entering its brightest phase yet. Influenced by the imposing aesthetics of the old Monastery in which the restaurant is currently based, the colours of the island, the abundance of the Aegean Sea and the perseverance of the rare local ingredients that flourish fearlessly among volcanic rocks, our Executive Chef introduces his culinary philosophy while honouring the legacy of Selene. Wine has always been an essential part of Selene's journey contributing to a spherical gastronomical experience. The wine list features some of the most sought-after wines of the world with a particular affection to the wines of Santorini. It is curated by Master of Wine, Yiannis Karakasis.
The goal is to immerse our guests in an authentic gastronomic experience which seamlessly combines tradition & creativity, simplicity & ingenuity, earth & sea, nostalgia & innovation and other contradictory concepts that float in the unique, intensely aromatic space occupied by the cuisine of Selene & Ettore Botrini.
