Dry overcooked octopus

Red Bicycle Review

Once featured on Giada De Laurentis's Food Network show, this sophisticated café and restaurant is located at the north end of Ia's main walkway, just down the steps; its big terrace offers Ia's finest caldera view. Owner Chara Kourti warmly touts her Santorini pureéd fava with onion chutney and kafaifi crust, and also her baked feta in a nacho crust with orange preserves and lemon balm. And no one will complain about the octopus with crabmeant, fresh coriander, potatoes, and truffle foam, or the seabass cooked in sea salt. Desserts are a specialty; try mastic mousse with carmelized pistachios and rose-petal preserves. This popular spot is open from lunch until late. Note that one level down is Kourti's 39 Steps café.
