A walk in Oia, on the northern part of Santorini, brought me to this beautiful typical captain's house built in the middle 19th century and now restored to become the 1800 Restaurant. First of all, impressive decoration and really traditional. It is good that the owners have kept the building almost intact.
The restaurant was nicely done up to match the landscape around it. The roof garden was very tempting. The view of the blue sea that surrounds the volcanic island was stunning. I ordered a crabmeat salad appetizer followed by a lamb burger and champagne and cherry risotto. They were all superb! My warm congrats to the chef!! The service was also cordial and friendly.
We enjoyed a good local wine and got surprised that the locals produce so nice red wine! They told me that it is the volcanic soil that makes the grapes so tasty! Ah, obviously the volcano has made again its miracles!
