The story of Pyrgos Restaurant begins in 1988. Artemis Denaxas opens the homonymous tavern at the entrance of Pyrgos village and begins serving delicious tastes inspired by the local gastronomic traditions, served with love and special care. This very first spot that hosted Pyrgos Restaurant was located just across the street from where the restaurant stands today.
1992 was the year that Pyrgos Restaurant was transferred to the spot that it is located today. This location offers panoramic views to the island, the vineyards that surround the restaurant as far as the caldera and of course, the unique sunsets. Its circular construction resembles an observatory, the wooden décor creates a cosy atmosphere and our gastronomic standards continuously reach new heights.
In 2005, a lavish garden that surrounds the premises renews the appearance of Pyrgos restaurant. The gardens blend harmoniously with the nature of the island and the vineyards, making your visit to Pyrgos Restaurant even more pleasurable. There are also changes in the restaurant’s management as the owner’s son Nikos Denaxas is now taking charge, presaging the new era of the restaurant.
2007 is a landmark year for Pyrgos Restaurant’s history as a grounds-up renovation at the main premises of the restaurant takes place and the reception halls are now added. Pyrgos Restaurant is not just a restaurant anymore; it is a complete destination where you will enjoy your meal or where you will host a flawless and successful reception or event.
Pyrgos Restaurant is now established as a top venue for events in Santorini. To offer a complete and memorable wedding experience, a private church was built to become an integral part of Pyrgos Restaurant. Now, those choosing Pyrgos Restaurant for their wedding can also arrange for their wedding ceremony to be held at the picturesque church of Aghia Fotini.
Pyrgos Restaurant never stops adding and offering more services to its guests. For the convenience of your guests and for hosting even bigger events, the parking can be expanded, where for those seeking to impress with an arrival to remember, a helipad was constructed for an unforgettable experience that can take off or land at Pyrgos Restaurant. Helicopter tours are also available on the wedding packages of the restaurant.
Besides the modern indoor wedding and event halls of the Pyrgos Restaurant, in 2017 new outdoor premises (the new lovish Garden) were added for those seeking an outdoors venue to enjoy the delicious tastes of Pyrgos Restaurant (“A la Carte” menu) or to organize their event or wedding reception surrounded by the nature of Santorini, while enjoying the panoramic views to the caldera.
