In the heart of Canggu, a piece of the unique and beautiful island of Santorini! The ubiquitous blue and white décor of Greece is eye-catching and will transport you to Santorini. Furthermore, the fact that it is run by a Greek family ensures authentic products of exceptional quality.

Take a seat and pretend you’re in Greece… The murals add to the ambiance by depicting the iconic white houses with blue doors and windows. Let’s not even get started on the menu! Every day, the chef prepares a degustation of selected Greek dishes that are rich in wonderful Greek flavors and are based solely on traditional recipes that will impress anyone.

The mixed grill plates at an affordable price served in generous portions to share with all your wonderful companions are a favorite here because Mediterranean cuisine is meant to be a social experience. Other popular Greek dishes include souvlaki (small pieces of meat or vegetables grilled on a skewer), moussaka (eggplant or potato-based dish made of milk-based sauce thickened with béchamel sauce), and pita bread (a wrap for souvlaki or gyros usually filled with tzatziki sauce, tomatoes, onions, and French Fries).
