A world of gustatory illusions
Whitewashed stone pillars hold up a white wooden awning. Among them, large candles in glass bowls resting on low benches, create a mystical atmosphere. Three greenish olive trees planted in white pots, converse with the tamarisk trees on the beach. As you look up at the moon, generously offering light to the bay of Grikos, you hear waves splashing. There is a cooling evening breeze while you, infatuated by the simplicity of the environment, try to order. «Apocalypsis» is no ordinary restaurant. When in the area, you get the impression of dining in a friend's courtyard, who owns a villa in the most magical place in the world.
The menu resembles a typical summer walk in Greece. The executive chef is an experienced captain, aware of the most beautiful places to travel. He guides us to a hidden world of tastes, combining Greek creative cuisine with Japanese flavors, while bringing back old recipes, which arise explosive aromas in culinary combinations that will form the future backbone of Greek creative cuisine.
Of course, a decisive role in the quality of this neat catalogue, that combines numerous options with imaginative flavors, is played by the seasonality of vegetables and the freshness of all raw materials used. Both fish and seafood, apart from the local ones, mainly come from Leros or Kalymnos, whereas the carefully chosen meat, from standardized Macedonian farms. A key secret to all dishes' genuine deliciousness is the chef's obsession to avoid spices. Instead, he follows the recipe of our ancient ancestors and persistently chooses beneficial herbs, collected either from the hotel's garden or from a neighboring vegetable garden. Oregano, lavender, rosemary, fennel, mint and spearmint have a field day, providing an authentic, natural flavor in every meal.
