Santorini, Greece: Volcano Blue

Remember when I told you we met some Canadians in Mykonos, Greece? They had just arrived from Santorini and we were on our way, so they pointed us to Volcano Blue in Fira, Santorini. We stumbled on the restaurant late one night and walked in and made a sunset reservation for the next day.

We started with mussels and then all ordered more mussels for our entrees. I ate my weight in pasta and mussels while I was in Greece. There were a number of decidedly average and bad meals that won’t be mentioned on the blog. This one though was one of my favorite meals. The view couldn’t be topped and the fresh and delectable mussels was moderately priced. The servers were kind and quirky. We caught our server discreetly making a duck noise. When I asked if I heard him correctly, he asked if we wanted to hear what noise rabbits make when they eat.

For dessert, we joked about ordering more mussels but we had the baklava and a chocolate soufflé. The soufflé wasn’t the flaky soufflés I’m used to and was more a dense chocolate cake cooked in a ramekin. The baklava wasn’t the best we’ve had in Greece either. If I could do it again, I’d skip dessert and order more mussels!

The sun was long gone by the time we ordered dessert so I don’t have any photos to share. Instead, please accept another shot of the view.
