I found out about this restaurant from the chef himself, George Calombaris, whose restaurant The Press Club I went to in Melbourne back in March. Our first night in Mykonos we decided to stay at the hotel and try The Belvedere Club out. What a great first dinner! The setting was beautiful and serene with tables set out by the gorgeously illuminated pool.
We started with the truffle pita (I can never ignore a dish that involves truffles) as well as the saganaki, crispy calamari chips (too curious not to try them:)) and the traditional horiatiki Greek salad. All were wonderful! The calamari chips were especially interesting – they resembled thinly shaved and fried onion rings but were much lighter and were very pleasing. Because we splurged on our appetizers, we ordered the fresh fish of the day to split which ended up being plenty of food. And of course we saved room for dessert! The warm chocolate pudding with hot white chocolate sauce didn’t disappoint. Perfect ending to a delicious Greek meal!
