Our 5 recommendations are: 


If your taste buds want to delve into Greek cuisine, Ilios will delight you. Enjoy the passion and flavour of Mediterranean cuisine at its finest with genuine dishes. This restaurant honours the breadth of Greek cuisine by taking traditional gastronomy to a new level of elegance and sophistication amidst delicate décor, eco-integrating architecture and visual harmony in every corner. Additionally, if you are looking for a bit of spectacle, we recommend you book in the evening, enjoy the sunset over the lagoon and the fire show, belly dancers, smashing plates and celebrating life to the rhythm of OPA!

Taboo specialises in everything seafood related, always discovering the best dishes the ocean has to offer, with an extravagant menu that includes dishes from tiger prawns, Mediterranean lobster, Dorado Royale, Turbot, Branzino, Prawns or the famous Colossal Calamari that we recommend you try.
