Klimataria has been serving up traditional Greek food to islanders since the ’80s, and there’s something timeless about the stone slab floors and of old wood tables under the shade of what feels like thousands of bougainvillea strewn through wooden beams. Throw in a plate of the freshest salads and feta plus a rack of grilled lamb chops, and you have pretty much the perfect lunch.
St. Giorgio, Antiparos
Word on the cobblestoned streets of the Cyclades is that this charmingly rustic, family-run restaurant serves the best grilled fish in the islands. And we believe it. The freshness of the seafood here is undisputed—you can even see the fresh catch drying on the railings overlooking Ai Giorgis beach—and we love the casual, unpretentious vibe. The best seats are located on an outdoor ledge that feels almost cantilevered over the water, with clear views of Despotiko, an uninhabited island just across the bay. Aside from the platters of grilled sea bass and mullet, there’s an indulgent seafood mezze and a wonderfully salty plate of sardines drizzled in local olive oil, served with grilled bread. Take note: goop staffers who frequented this spot over the summer couldn’t get enough of the house rosé.
