ANOGI

GREECE

  • Bills itself ‘best restaurant in Imerovigli’, and we can’t argue with that.
  • Low on caldera views so low on tourists too, all the better to woo locals, and it does.
  • Go for traditional Greek food, it’s as good as the lovely owners claim.
  • Pitch up on spec, you’ll have a wait, but wine and comfy seats ease the pain.
