A guide to the best restaurants in Sani

In upmarket Sani, you’ll find eating establishments ranging from high-end dining to relaxed, family-friendly places with kids’ menus. Many of the eateries are set in the luxury marina with superb sea and mountain views.

On your Sani holiday you have a choice of dining at your 5* hotel’s delicious restaurants or using the Dine Around scheme to eat out in the town itself. This means you can sample 16 of the resort’s gourmet restaurants included in the price of your package holidays to Halkidiki. Whether you’re eating Greek, Italian, sushi or Indian, you can be sure the dining rooms will be as tasteful as the meals.

Family Italian at Macaroni

This casual Italian restaurant is a favourite with families as it has a kids’ menu and grown-ups will appreciate the pleasant environment. They have a wide selection of pizza and pasta as well as amazing desserts such as chocolate fondant with pistachio ice cream. And you can eat them all while sitting on the beautiful dining area in front of the yacht-lined marina.

Fresh Greek salads at Tomata

This marina-side Greek taverna has a pergola dripping with wisteria, under which you can design your own starter from the salad and bread bar, with unusual flavours such as beetroot bread. It’s a little more pricey than your average restaurant, but the risottos are raved about and, with some of the produce grown on site, you know your food is fresh.

Swim-up dining at Grill by the Pool

An exquisite option for lunchtime fun next to the pool, this Sani Beach Hotel restaurant is classy yet casual. You can stay poolside and enjoy the Mediterranean food from your sunlounger or cover up and sit on the shady terrace. Evenings get going with music played by the pool and patio heaters if needed.

Prize-winning sushi at Sea You Up Restaurant

Twice winner of the ‘Golden Hat’ Greek Gourmet national prize, Sea You Up mixes Japanese and Greek cuisines. So you can expect fresh, local seafood and veg in your sushi and tempura. The calm, oriental decor is accented by Bonsai trees on tables and this place is also great just for cocktails at the bar.

Dessert in or out at La Creperie

For light bites or just an ice cream to take on to the beach, Creperie cafe is open middays and evenings. You could swing by here after dinner to get a take-away dessert or sit at the marina-side tables and enjoy crepes and cocktails at happy hour.

Healthy Michelin-starred food at Water restaurant

The a la carte, gourmet and wellbeing menu at Water is created by a two Michelin-starred chef. Based in the elegant Sani Asterias Hotel, the marina views are as exceptional as the food. They now have an adults-only indoor area – Over Water – for breakfast and dinner.
