Santorini boasts a dramatic landscape that compares to none other. It is a Mecca for couples and newlyweds, that is distinguished for its imposing Caldera views, breathtaking sunsets, luxurious, cave-like hotels, and white-washed buildings. The island's Mediterranean beauty immediately puts you in a mood for vacations and authentic Greek cuisine.
Santorini's rich volcanic soil nurtures the local agricultural products with a unique taste that truly greatly deficiencies from the taste that you are used to. Lots of vegetables grow in abundance on the island including fava, white aubergines, capers, and cherry tomatoes. At the same time, Santorini is also known as a "wine island" so wine lovers cheer as many grape varieties grow there like Assyrtiko, Athiri, Aidani, Mavrotragano, Nykteri, and Vinsanto.
So, it's crystal clear that the food experience of Santorini is food and diverse. When it comes to gourmet cuisine, whatsoever, there are very few restaurants that stand out, and one of them is La Colline Restaurant, also known as the only restaurant on the island serving gourmet French cuisine. Let's find out what makes this restaurant so special.
