Indulge All your Senses
Inspired by the diverse flavours found on the shores of the Mediterranean, created with locally sourced products grown in the volcanic soil of Santorini, and paired with the finest wines from around the world, our dishes are packed with flavours as much as emotions. At Mavro Restaurant, we lovingly handpick the finest ingredients, using them with the utmost care and profound respect, as we seek to grasp something as elusive as happiness.
Award-winning Chef Jean-Charles Metayer invites you on a culinary journey that will take you from France's Atlantic coast where he grew up, all the way to Greece, his adopted home for the past 20 years. Based on fresh ingredients that come straight from the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, our dishes marry the rich traditions of the region with the masterful techniques of French haute cuisine for a sophisticated gastronomic experience.
Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
When is the right time to visit Mavro Restaurant? In the morning, when the magnificent views of the caldera in Imerovigli deserve nothing less than a sumptuous breakfast of delicate flavours. When the sun reaches its peak to sit above the shimmering Aegean Sea, making lunchtime a moment of pure, leisurely pleasure. In the evenings, when the sunset paints the caldera cliffs in a plethora of scarlet hues calling for a romantic dinner. Or simply when looking for an out-of-the-ordinary experience. In short, it's always the right time to visit Mavro Restaurant.
Just like a precious black gem unearthed from the volcanic rocks, Mavro Restaurant at Kivotos Hotel & Villas adorns the caldera of Imerovigli with its distinctive, all-black architecture. Dine on our veranda that floats above the magnificent Skaros Rock where the shadows of an old castle city taunt the imagination. Let the soft Aegean breeze whisper words of love as you savour Mediterranean cuisine at its finest. Enjoy the seductive experience that you can only find at Mavro Restaurant.
Is there anything better than a rich, luscious, indulgent dessert to round up a good meal? We think not, which is why we have created a bespoke selection of delightful confectionery treats to satisfy every taste. With a creative approach to dessert-making, Mavro Restaurant will seduce you with its innovative recipes and exquisite craftsmanship.
