Ambrosia, Oia, Santorini
Tel: 30 22860 71413
Concierge.com's insider take:
The Santorini sunset is best observed from here, at what has long been one of the centers of summertime village life. While the magnificent terrace view is one reason to come, so is the exquisite taste of co-owners Tony Mosiman and Panayiotis Vassilopoulos, who are also responsible for the hotel 1864 The Sea Captain's House and Ambrosia & Nectar (30-22860-71504). So if it's dark or (God forbid) raining, you can take refuge in pretty interiors with antiques, candlelight, and mirrors. The food is excellent contemporary Greek, try the tender beef fillet, fresh truffles, and sweet-pumpkin puree, or the pan-seared duck in red-wine–and–cherry marinade with grilled mango and jasmine rice with walnuts.
Open daily 7 pm to 12 am, April through October.
