Greece & Turkey, looking for a few fabulous lunch spots

Going in late May, Istanbul, Kusadasi, Santorini, Mykonos, Rhodes and Athens.
We have half day tours booked for our group of 8, and are looking for some absolutely wonderful lunches in any of these spots. Santorini and Mykonos, especially as we have no guide, we have the entire day. No budget, love local, fresh, interesting, and would always love a view.Thanks.

  1. I'm looking for the same type of recommendations. Have you found any other websites or places to get recs?

    1. In Rhodes, Marco Polo or Ta Kioupia, both in the old town. In the city center, try Indigo or Ergon.

      1. Check first to make sure they are open for lunch as many better places are only open for dinner.

        1. Maybe in Rhodes for something quite special tru Botrini's Rhodes. In Athens most of the great restaurants are only open for dinner.

          1. In Fira (Santorini), Archipelagos, Greek fusion, looks into the Caldera, delicious. http://www.archipelagos-santorini.com/ .

              The view is beautiful at Archipelagos. The food was quite good when I dined there in 2007 (so it's quite possible the food could have improved since my visit), but I preferred the simpler food at some of the more basic tavernas. While it's on the pricey side, it does offer a change from the more typical rustic foods found in most tavernas.
