Mat­suhisa, The Belvedere, Mykonos

Vacations & Travel - - Tried & Tested - By Daniel Res­nik

The Belvedere is lo­cated in the heart of Mykonos town and is one of the old­est five-star ho­tels on the is­land. Upon en­ter­ing the lobby, el­e­gance and style en­velops you im­me­di­ately and con­tin­ues through to the bougainvil­lea filled court­yard that sur­rounds the ho­tel’s pool. Ad­join­ing the pool area is a se­lec­tion of plush bars and ex­clu­sive restau­rants, in­clud­ing Mat­suhisa Mykonos. A team of world-renowned and award-win­ning chefs, in­clud­ing Nobu Mat­suhisa, Nikos Zer­vos and mixol­o­gist Dale de Groff, en­sure a din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence here that will leave you with a last­ing mem­ory. Our flam­boy­ant and knowl­edge­able waiter sug­gested we or­der some of the res­tau­rant’s most pop­u­lar dishes to try and ex­pe­ri­ence the true essence of chef Nobu Mat­suhisa’s menu. These de­li­cious de­lights in­cluded: Nobu style sashimi tacos, seared salmon karash su miso, baby spinach salad with lob­ster, dry miso and truf­fle, new style sashimi white fish, rock shrimp choice of ponzu, black cod yuzu miso, Wagyu beef fil­let with three sauces, and last but not least were the sump­tu­ous spicy tuna hand rolls.

Dessert was a choco­late bento box served with green tea ice cream, pas­sion fruit crème brulee and a wicked San­torini whiskey cap­puc­cino. The award-win­ning Mat­suhisa Cel­lar also of­fers ap­prox­i­mately 5,000 bot­tles of wine from clas­sic French, Ital­ian and Greek vine­yards, with a fur­ther em­pha­sis on wines from around the world. A warm balmy evening, mouth­wa­ter­ing din­ner, de­li­cious cock­tails and smooth tunes guar­an­teed an un­for­get­table time. belved­ere­ho­tel.com; slh.com
