A Journey Through Time
1985 - present


In a time when concepts such as “terroir” and “gastronomic tourism” are, yet, unknown, Giorgos Hatziyannakis and his wife Evelyn envision a restaurant which promotes the ingredients and the long-forgotten gastronomic tradition of the island.
Selene opens on the edge of the Caldera of Fira, Santorini.


Selene introduces a menu with 3 columns: Santorinian, Greek and Ιnternational cuisine.
Wine, from the beginning, is an essential part of Selene’s journey.


Selene restaurant starts offering an increasingly creative local cuisine.
Traditional dishes are reinvented “without losing their soul”.


George Hatzigiannakis’ lifelong work towards the revival and evolution of local cuisine is widely acknowledged by critics and culinary institutions.
Selene, by 2006, is one of the most important Greek restaurants.


Selene is relocated to Pyrgos, a village medieval hilltop village surrounded by vineyards. It starts hosting Vedema, the annual wine festival where all the island’s winemakers are brought together.
Some of the most talented Greek Chefs leave their mark at Selene throughout the decade.


Selene restaurant becomes part of the Katikies family and returns to Fira. It is based in its current home: the imposing 18th century Catholic Monastery of Dominican Nuns.
Yannis Karakasis, one of the 408 Masters of Wine, takes charge of the Selene wine program.
