George Psychas created Sphinx in 1983, a jazz bar in Oia. Two years later his passion for cooking guided him to spread the name into restaurants in Santorini and Athens.
Good food needs a good wine, and during years, George's collection of wines both local and international, kept growing, eventually leading him to the idea of combining both his passions and thus Sphinx Wine Restaurant was born.
Settled in a unique traditional building in Oia, the Sphinx team is serving daily dishes based on local products accompanied by wines selected under distinction.
The old underground water tank, was transformed into a cellar, where more than 400 wine bottles are stored under adequate aging conditions. For preserving the quality of the bottles opened, Coravin method is being used when wine is served by glass.
