No wonder this restaurant is famous! The setting is elegant but nothing too much, the service is truly impeccable but the food is what it makes it stand out. They make wonders in the culinary department! Have the shrimp ravioli and you'll remember it forever.

So happy to have found a lovely restaurant with interesting food and good service. They excelled themselves with their deserts too. A little oasis in the dessert on a very hot day. Thank you.

We actually ate at the Selene fine dining restaurant which is located on the top floor or rooftop. This restaurant was recommended by our tour company ( Truegreece). We decided to upgrade to the fine dinning restaurant instead of the more casual bistro downstairs (...More

We ate dinner in their more casual "wine and meze" cafe rather than in the fancier place upstairs, and still had quite a nice meal. The staff was friendly and efficient, and helped us select a nice local wine. The quinoa + tuna dolmas were...More

We ate at the bistro for lunch and had a wonderful beautifully presented meal. The food was flavorful. Greek food elevated. Had a nice wine list as well. The service was reserved and professional. Not particularly crowded for lunch -surprised.

Located out of the crazy tourist districts of Fira and Oia in Pyrgos, Selene offers a unique and wonderful culinary experience. A mixture of island and French cuisine each bite will leave you wanting even more. This restaurant came highly recommend by our private tour...More

An elegant restaurant with friendly and attentive waiters. We enjoyed the wonderfully presented & delicious dishes. All this was with the backdrop of the skyline changing colours in a gorgeous sunset. The only down side was that it got pretty chilly into the evening -...More

Usually they have. Even better if you call them in advance they can make dishes specially for you.

'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.
