It was our last day on the gorgeous island of Santorini in Greece.
For this last day, we wanted something a bit more special. We asked the inn owner, “can you recommend a place with really good food and a great view?”
He paused and then chuckled.
“The places with the best views do not have good food, and the places with the best food do not have the best views.”
We decided we could forgo the best views in exchange for really good food. He recommended a lovely place in Oia called “Papagalos.” Only a five minute walk from where we were staying, Papagalos was the perfect place to enjoy our last meal out in Greece.
Though the restaurant is not right on the ocean, it still has a lovely view. Honestly, I think there are very few places in Oia with a bad view. After all, most of the buildings in the entire town are perched off of a high cliff overlooking the ocean. Sure, we were set a bit back, but you can still see the water quite clearly.
Frst thing’s first – fresh bread accompanied by olive oil and olive tapenade!
We then enjoyed house made meat balls in a tomato-based sauce served with freshly baked pita bread, rice, and a fresh yogurt sauce.
Here’s another stewed lamb dish served with a beautiful side of hummus.
These creamy sauteed oyster mushrooms were simple yet delicious.
My favorite! Halloumi cheese (I’d never tried it fried!) served over beautifully grilled vegetables. This was one of my favorite dishes.
We spent our final day just walking around the peaceful island.
The scenery is stunning in Santorini, to the point of seeming unreal sometimes . . .
I woke up super early before my 9AM flight my last morning to catch the sunrise.
Good by Santorini. I’ll surely miss you . . .
This is the last post in the larger Greece series.
