An Exceptional Fine Dining Restaurant. A memorable experience. We selected the Chef's tasting menu. Very tasty food and each dish build up the preparation for the next plate to come. The 230 Euro per person is well worth the spending. A must to eat.

Selene offers an absolute top notch dining experience. It was the culinary highlight of our Greece trip. Foremost, the food is authentic, and incredibly creative. We elected to do the ‘a la cartel’ option - which is served in a prefix menu format, but you’ll have options for each course. Highlights for us included the vegetarian carpaccio, various fish based main courses, and outstanding desserts. The bread is also the best we’d tried in Greece. Second, the atmosphere perfectly complements the food. Located in a monastery (which is still partially in use); the courtyard is beautifully appointed and incredibly charming. Finally, it was apparent that the staff deeply cares , and each went out of their way to elevate the experience. Service is top notch across the board. We look forward to returning one day - as this was a highlight from the trip.

Selene deserves 5 stars based off of the Google categories. The food was phenomonal and the servers were attentive. The stories behind every plate make the experience enjoyable. This was my favorite restaurant I visited outside of Botrini. If you have time to dine at both I highly recommend it. Don't shy away from indulging in the olive oil they serve either!

We came here for dinner based on Google and to be honest, wish we had read the reviews closely prior to attending. The restaurant ambiance and staff were great. Walking into the restaurant you definitely get the feeling of high end. The staff are friendly and welcoming. That gets 5/5 However, the food did not live up to its hype. For two, our bill came to about 700 euros and we still had to order room service when we got back to our hotel. I’ve been to many other restaurants that are Michelin stars or have Michelin-star chefs and I enjoyed them much better. I didn’t have an issue paying the bill but, for 700 euros, I expected a certain level of satisfaction which wasn’t there. Wouldn’t be on my recommend restaurants.
