Moussaka, souvlaki and loukoumades might be known all over the world, but Greek restaurants have barely received the international attention they deserve

The elegant sea-front 7 Thalasses in Rethymnon is in 3rd place on the list of the top restaurants in the world "ideal for photos and selfies", according to Trip Advisor’s 2022 list.

Gastronomic heavy hitters aside, Santorini came in a very respectable 19th on the list.
