Three Greek Restaurants Among World’s Best

13-aquataverna-flickr_Randy-LevineThe Daily Meal, has listed three Greek restaurants among the very best with food and sunsets worth the trip halfway across the globe.

From New Zealand, Paris and Manhattan to the private corners of the Earth, Bora Bora, Cap Ferret, and Bali, we find Greece within the list of the 32 best restaurants in the world with a sunset view. The three Greek restaurants praised are the following:

Aqua Taverna in Mykonos with a picturesque view of the sea and surrounding windmills, seafood pasta, and feta wrapped in phyllo with honey with sesame and poppy seeds, accompanied by some of the best-priced, crispest white wines on the island.

The rooftop at Hotel Grand Bretagne in Athens, offers views of the reddening sun sinking into the ancient Acropolis. It also offers mod-Mediterranean bites like roast scallops with celery, fennel, and pear; octopus terrine with sweet peppers, smoked eggplant, and wild oregano; and a stepped-up classic Greek salad with barley rusks (twice-baked bread), feta, and capers. Make a toast with a refreshing local Greek white wine.

Solymar Beach Restaurant & Bar in Mykonos. With a casual-chic bright interior inside a thatch-covered dining room, stunning views of Kalo Livadi Beach on the south side of the island, hip DJing, and delicious bites, it’s no wonder beautiful people flock to Mykonos’ boozy play land, Solymar, which appropriately translates to “sun and sea.” The volume cranks up at sunset, when fabulous cliques dive into the watermelon, feta, and tomato salad. Also make sure to get your well-manicured hands on some baked feta with grapes and braised octopus with crab.
