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.

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.

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.

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

And roasted vegetables piled high with creamy Greek yogurt.

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!
