A note from the owner-
3 years ago, I spent the month of July sailing amongst the Cyclades Islands in Greece with my family. We anchored in the main port of Hydra one afternoon, a beautiful relatively small island and I was struck by its gorgeous scenery and simplicity. There were no cars, transport is by horse or donkey, there was a vibrant fish and vegetable market and the rocky outcrop of small rustic houses and shops was like being transported back in time. The culinary scene on Hydra is as well, simple, rustic, authentic and excellent. The star is the simple fresh ingredients and authentic time-honored cooking techniques to bring out the best of the island’s flavours.
It is this special character of elevated Greek dining we are now showcasing at Estiatorio Hydra, to impart the magic of Hydra to our guests. The Greek Cyclades, in fact the whole of Greece, is a special place full of rich history and tradition. Cooking techniques have been passed down through the generations for thousands of years. We are lucky to have our Chef team pass on their family recipes and rich Greek experience to the Hydra concept and deliver the freshest seafood, meats, chicken and vegetables prepared using these time-honored techniques best described as “elevated rustic Greek dining, prepared with a refined technique”
