The Archipelagos Gastrosophy
The culinary treasures of the Aegean Archipelago are an invaluable part of the Greek civilization and culture. Formed by the often barren landscape, the sun and the salty sea breeze, they have produced flavors and experiences which have stood the test of time.
A seductive cuisine that will get any gastronomic heart thumping: extra virgin olive oil, delicious tenderly cooked pulses, home-grown vegetables and herbs, wild spices, fresh fishes, flavorful fresh goat or sheep cheeses, kouloures and paximadia (rusks) with a robust flavor given by the local wheat and barley varieties, exceptional wines made from ancient Greek varieties of grapes.
The proximity to nature, the use of local products and the preservation of local recipes and food preparation are all reflected in balance in the Archipelagos Cuisine, ensuring that our guests will experience a true taste of Greece.
The Archipelagos Restaurant evokes the hotel’s maternal devotion to cultivating seriously pedigreed cuisine.
Our a la carte restaurant is placed in a beautiful shaded terrace, right next to the pool and overlooking the Kalo Livadi Bay.
Here you can enjoy the restaurant’s beautiful surroundings, while savoring original recipes based on sourcing products from their famous Cycladic origins, such as caper from Santorini, saffron from Sikinos, cheeses from Naxos, baby artichoke from Tinos, handmade pasta from Paros, honey from Ikaria.
