Greek traditional cuisine
Food, part of our culture...
Based on the Meditteranean cuisine and the local recipes of Santorini, Marmita offers authentic Greek dishes which are prepared of pure ingredients. The chef adds his personal creative touch and the result, apart from delicious, is also extremely imaginative in apperance.
The philosophy of Marmita restaurant is summarized in basic principles: excellent quality raw materials and well organized kitchen. "Think, decide, act" is the chef's motto, and everything is getting done according to that!
The menu includes dishes as the traditional moussaka, pork and chicken souvlaki, chicken fillet, papardelle with beef in tomato sauce and mushrooms, stuffed kalamari (squid), pork loin chop, prime ribs, seafood risotto, duck breast, fresh fish and many more. Appetizers like the Greek bruschetta, the fava of Santorini and the tomato balls are not to be missed!
In addition to meat, pasta and fish, you will also have the chance to taste a fantastic pizza, made by the "king" of the kitchen Vaggelis, who changed its shape and serves it rectangular and in mammoth size (45x35 cm)!
When it comes to dessert, you can choose among handmade spoon candies, baklava, traditional loukoumades (similar to pancakes) with fruits, honey and ice cream, panakota or the amazing chocolate souffle which is usually mentioned as the best on the island!
In an atmospheric area, in the center of Megalochori village, under the characteristic bell tower of the village, you will have the chance to taste familiar flavours that bring, however, the special creative touch of a talented chef.
In winter we use an extra wood stove in the restaurant, where we cook daily delicious oven dishes, soups and "rakomelo" (typical Greek mixed alcoholik drink).

The New York style pizza of Marmita
If you are in the mood for pizza while in Santorini, choose Marmita to enjoy it a la New York style! With a thick dough and at a huge size: 45x35 cm!
In order a pizza to be successful, it has to combine a few things such as excellent hand made dough which was let to "rest", pure ingredients of high quality and rich flavor and of course right baking. They do know all these at Marmita and the result is tasteful and filling. They prefer to cook their pizza according to the american style instead of italian, so don't expect the typical thin dough.
As for the combinations? You can choose the classic special one, or the one with prosciutto, ruccola and truffle oil, as well as the seafood one with tangerines and tuna. You can also combine the ingredients you like and make your own preferable pizza.
