Happiness is a Matter of Taste

Taste: The ability of a person to recognize different flavours.

Cambridge English Dictionary

Whether you prefer a quiet beach for your vacation or you love beach parties more than almost anything else, one thing is for sure: in Greece, you will never be disappointed by the food! A trip to Greece means a journey through flavors, aromas, herbs and fresh ingredients — always accompanied by a good wine or a glass full of ouzo or tsipouro, of course.

This applies to both the mainland Greece and its beautiful islands. The Cyclades in particular have their own gastronomic heritage that is as delicious as it is iconic. Fresh fish, fava bean purée, sausages, “louza”, traditional cheeses such as kopanisti and tyrovolia, are some of the most basic elements on the Cycladic menu.

But what makes the local cuisine so delicious? First of all, the fresh ingredients. The fish have just been caught by local fishermen, fine meat is usually produced by small farmers, fruits and vegetables are full of aromas, and the herbs being used —oregano, thyme, rosemary, bay leaves, to name but a few— take food to a whole new level of flavor. Moreover, the chefs’ love and passion for cooking, as well as their commitment to offering guests a great experience, ensure that attention is being paid to even the smallest detail.

When it comes to pairing your meal with a good wine, Cyclades are the perfect place if you would like to explore wines from Greece and all over the world, as restaurants offer a great variety and waiters are trained to make appropriate recommendations.

At Solymar, we combine the gastronomic tradition of the Cyclades with cultivated modern Mediterranean cuisine. Using the freshest, excellent quality ingredients from selected local producers, we strive to excite your taste buds and take your dining experience to the next level.
