By far the best meal in Santorini. Great wait staff. Very relaxed with views of the sunset. Delicious local wines. The deserts were also wonderful. Very classy place. Highly recommended.

Fantastic meal at Selene. Nothing ordinary about the food - we had silver service throughout our trip but Selene was above and beyond. All meals had something different - extra tastes and ingredients. Many thanks to chef and staff.

This was our best meal in Greece so far. The staff spoke impeccable English and were so genuine and thoughtful. We ate downstairs in the less expensive choice, however the food was top notch and so delicious. We were there when the sun was setting...More

I was walking through Pyrgos in the early evening and I happened to run by Selene. It was clearly fine dining and we are clearly in high season so I didn't actually think that I would be able to try it this time around. I...More

I visited twice this restaurant and I was amazed by the excellent quality of food, the proposed combination of wine and the overall service. It integrates delicate and tasteful cuisine with local products and culture. The flavour of Santorini!

We sat at the less expensive part of it. Such an imaginative pairing of flavors. Exquisite tastes, nicely prepared local products, variety of Greek wines and an amazing staff. Congrats and thank you girls. Wish we had the time to take your cook classes.

Description
'Selene' restaurant was established in 1986 in Fira, Santorini by Yiorgos and Evelyn Hatziyannakis. Our aim was from the very start, to show and promote the local products along with the local cuisine hoping that this will enable us to transmit to our guests a taste of the island's culture. The success that we have had all those years not only within Greece but also worldwide, has encouraged us to continue with cooking lessons, catering for weddings and conferences and various gastronomical events. Since 2010 'Selene' restaurant has moved location from Fira to Pyrgos. Pyrgos is one of the most beautiful and well-preserved villages of Santorini built around a medieval castle located in one of the highest points of the island offering magnificent views. What is mostly important for us however is that Pyrgos village, and the restaurant's location especially, lies next to the famous vineyards and the valuable farmland of Santorini.
