Greek Islands

Oia, Santorini, Cyclades
Tel: 22860-71485

The owner is an architect, which explains why this sea captain's house is so beautifully renovated. Delicious, elevated Greek cuisine goes toe to toe with the interiors—dinner here is as refined as Oia gets. It's also a great place to try the best local wines. Indulge in the impressive variety of Cuban cigars too.

Near the church, Oia, Santorini, Cyclades
Tel: 22860-71413

Come here for the sunset—everyone does, since the terrace has the best view and the contemporary cooking is among the finest in town. The candlelit, antique-filled interior is, arguably, even more romantic, though.

Oia, Santorini, Cyclades
Tel: 22860-71504

You won't be astonished to learn that this gracious place, an early epicurean Oia highlight (formerly known as Café-Restaurant) that serves up a mix of authentic Santorini cuisine and international dishes, is the sister to Ambrosia. The superstylish owners of 1864 The Sea Captain's House are responsible for both.

Firostefani, Santorini, Cyclades
Tel: 2286-25631

This 19th-century windmill has fairy lights, flowers and white wooden chairs on a terrace with a sweeping view over the blue Aegean. The fascinating food is worth a journey too—flowerpot chicken with smoked local tomatoes is a typical tweaked traditional dish.

Hotel Belvedere, Mykonos, Cyclades
Tel: 2289-025122

This de rigueur outpost of Japanese celebrity chef Nobu Matsuhisa marks Mykonos as the place to be, and you'll feel right in the center while eating his New Style sashimi in this seasonal (June to September) and ever-fashionable restaurant. Downstairs is a wine cellar room for intimate tastings.

Mykonos, Cyclades
Tel: 22890-24676

The pricey food is fine at this popular glass-walled seafood specialist located at the very edge of the island, but you come here more for posing and beautiful-people-watching than for a gastronomic experience.
