Tapas & Gelato, Santorini

Now I’m aware that “I know a great little tapas joint” is not the first thing you expect to hear from someone who’s been in Greece.

But hear me out, this little place really is great!

And it was just the place for us to spend a particularly grey and miserable thunderstorm one evening in Santorini.

The wind blew us all the way from our hotel up onto Oia’s main drag.

We wandered over to Melitini for the intriguing idea of Greek Tapas.

Plonking ourselves on their roof terrace to watch the storm roll in.

Santorini Supper-7

With wine and nibbles, naturally!

Santorini Supper-8

We shared a range of uber garlicky dips, followed by a much better baked feta.

Santorini Supper-9

Exceptionally good grilled octopus.

Santorini Supper-10

Before the heavens opened with a crack of thunder, and we raced down into the warmth.

Where we found two great big baked dishes waiting for us.

Santorini Supper-12

Potatoes topped with spicy sausage, tomato sauce and fried eggs.

Santorini Supper-13

And roasted vegetables piled high with creamy Greek yogurt.

Santorini Supper-14

A truly delicious meal and something a little bit different to what you’ll find on the rest of the island.

Well worth a visit if you’re staying in Oia.

In between rain clouds we raced through the streets to our favourite gelato spot.

Dancing along to the old-school-disco-tunes booming out of the old speakers is highly encouraged.

My combo of choice was peanut dream and chocolate. My very own snickers in a cup!

We took up a couple of seats outside and saw out the storm under the canvas.

Racing home in the dark, slipping and dodging raindrops as we went.

Tucking ourselves into bed just as the real monsoon started, with a huge bolt of lightening illuminating the angry sea.

There’s not much better than being tucked up under a duvet when a storm’s howling outside, but doing it with some of my favourite people, full of ice cream was a real life highlight!

    I was in Santorini in 2005 and I remember one day there was a massive storm. The morning was sunny and hot, but by early afternoon the black clouds rolled in. Rain drops the size of golf balls started crashing down and flooded the streets and still to this day I have never heard thunder so loud! A few hours later a blue, sunny sky appeared and the water dissipated. It was wild! We were all soaked but it was still so warm. I absolutely love everything about Santorini, even the crazy storms! I have to go back soon ๐Ÿ™‚

    As much as I miss Santorini my hair definitely doesn’t miss that wind! Damn I looked like a hot mess while I was there.

    Perfect gelato choice as well, anything snickers related is always my go to. Except I’ll always go for the cone and not the cup!

    I find that tapas is always really over-priced and disappointing outside of Spain but those huevos looked prettyyyyy good ^.^ And I couldn’t agree more about being all wrapped up and snuggley inside whilst listening to the storm outside <3




  • looks like you have had a fun time eating gelato with your good friend, or should I say, sister-from-another-mister, right? May I say that the quality of your photos have vastly improved from the old posts I have stalked ๐Ÿ™‚
