Holiday in Santorini – Your guide to Santorini, Greece


What to eat in Santorini?

The volcanic soil and abundant sunshine of Santorini creates fresh produce unique to the island, such as small cherry tomatoes packed with flavour called tomatines and round white eggplants. These pivotal ingredients form the basis for much of the traditional food in Santorini.

  1. Tomatokeftedes: Made with Santorini’s legendary cherry tomatoes, these delicious little tomato fritters are a specialty of the island and are usually served with a dipping sauce of Greek yoghurt.
  2. Fava: These small legumes are used in many dishes but most commonly boiled and made into a puree served with lemon juice and red onion. Their smooth flavour makes a tasty dip accompanied by pita bread.
  3. Melintzanes: Unlike the better-known purple eggplant, this white variety is sweet, with few seeds and can be eaten raw. It is fantastic simply grilled and served as an appetiser or made into a paste called melitzanosalata.
  4. Horiatiki salad: This traditional Greek salad has many variations throughout the country but in Santorini it consists of olives, cucumber, feta, onion and of course the island’s beautiful tomatines.
  5. Chloro: This super fresh, handmade goats milk cheese is produced using traditional methods that date back hundreds of years. It has a creamy texture and slightly sour taste, making it the perfect accompaniment to a glass of Santorini wine.
