A Few Words
Fanari serves gourmet meals and local delicacies that transform any meal into an unforgettable culinary experience. The restaurant is noted for its traditional specialties and unique dishes.
The menu features a large selection of main courses and appetizers so diners can order familiar dishes but also sample new flavors. There are also low fat and low cholesterol dishes, vegetarian dishes, and children’s portions. All menu items are made to order with select ingredients. In addition to local ingredients, dishes also feature high quality ingredients from other Greek regions and abroad.
The setting is as unique as the food, which is rooted in Santorini’s traditional cuisine but updated for more contemporary palates. The restaurant fuses Mediterranean flavors with elements from Chinese cuisine, but also serves dishes that combine meat and fish. Some original creations are savory Santorini Tart with creamy cheese and sun-dried tomatoes covered by a basil and garlic sauce; a scallops rosette with a touch of fava; prawns nested in linguine with roast Santorini cherry tomatoes, spinach, and grilled zucchini; skordomakarono, spaghetti cooked in a tomato-garlic sauce made with sun-dried tomatoes; yellow Santorini Salad featuring fava, rocket, spring onions, endive, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, dill, and capers dressed with extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice; a rocket and spinach salad with onions, Naxos’s arseniko cheese, and Santorini cherry tomatoes in a mint dressing; and, filet mignon with a Vinsanto wine sauce and celery root puree.
There’s a selection of wines to accompany any meal, from Santorini’s fine vintages to labels from other parts of Greece—white, red, dessert, and champagne. Santorini vintages pair best with the dishes as the local Assyrtiko, Athiri, Aidani, Mavrotragano, and Mavrathiro grapes have grow in the same soil as local produce.
Fanari is open from 1 pm to 11 pm.
