Selene is a fine dining restaurant serving Greek cuisine, housed inside of a gorgeous former monastery. The building is now home to Katikies Garden Hotel, the only 5-star hotel in Fira. Now in its 35th year, Selene was previously located in the village of Pyrgos in Santorini. And in 2021, Selene will now be led by Michelin-starred chef Ettore Botrini. The primary dining area is in the beautiful courtyard, next to a fountain, with an iron pergola where cocktails are served. The menu, as well as cooking classes and tastings all promote Santorini and Cycladic cuisines.
