1.Traditional ingredients with a modern twist
The vision has always been to exhibit the importance of tradition in a refined way in all aspects of your stay in Esperas Hotel. Incorporating traditional flavours in modern recipes in order to upgrade our guests’ experience, led to the structure of the carefully designed menu card.

From the traditional talagani cheese in the wraps, baguettes and burgers to cherry tomatoes with the local chloro cheese in the Santorini Risotto. Vegetarians will not be sorry for visiting our restaurant as we have a large range of salads, exemplary Santorinian fava and a special wrap and baguette or even a club sandwich. Meat lovers will be delighted to hear that apart from the burgers, there are plenty of choices juicy steaks and fillets. Desserts like lemon tart or chocolate souffle will “cleanse your palate” the sweetest way.
3.The special tastes
The Grilled Shrimp starter dish, is not to be missed. It is seasoned with special Santorinian herbs, with our chef’s Mojito sauce. For the ultimate mediterranean flavor try the Sea Bass a la Papillote which is baked in rice paper with carrots, zucchini, celery & lemon sauce. The crispy fish, the sweet vegetables and the sharpness of the sauce are an unrivalled match. For the adventurous taste buds don’t miss the Sea Bream filleτ, served with tomatoes and capers in Asyrtiko wine sauce. As you can imagine the seafood selection is pure delight.
If you are a Risotto lover then we have the best choice of recipes for you. If you are not, you might change your mind right after you tried the Risotto with a mix of forest mushrooms and baby kalamari, a divine combination of forest and sea goods will not leave you unsatisfied. The Santorinian risotto is the traditional touch of this selection.
