Santorini is a beautiful Greek island in the blue Aegean Sea. It is also a restaurant, that looks as if it had been transplanted straight from sunny Greece to the heart of Gdynia. Located in a quiet courtyard in busy Świętojańska Street, “Santorini” is an oasis of peace in the big city, perfect for a romantic supper or a dinner with family. The green, well-kept garden with wooden tables encourages you to visit the restaurant with children or your four-legged pets. The cuisine is mainly based on traditional recipes and original Greek products. Lamb, roasted with mint butter and pork sirloin souvlaki-kebabs, are particularly popular among the dishes from the rich restaurant menu. It is also worth ordering a glass of ouzo, the cult national drink of the Greeks, they enjoy on sunny afternoons.
“Santorini” draws on the experience of Greek island living, it has a blue and white decor typical of traditional Greek pubs. Also from the outside, it resembles a traditional Greek tavern with its white-plastered walls and blue doors and shutters. The interior is unpretentious, yet carefully designed. Everything fits together: whitewashed walls, stone floor, a simple bar, blue wooden tables covered with checked tablecloths, and lots of wicker. Decorative elements such as embroidered pillows, lace curtains, dolls in traditional costumes or paintings depicting white coastal towns – all of them were brought here by the Greek owner, from his sunny homeland.
