This season Anassa introduces a new dining experience—the Barbeque under the Stars.
This season Anassa introduces a new dining experience—the Barbeque under the Stars. We transform the lawn between the sea and the main pool into a candlelit dining space. Be seated and listen to the sea’s surf and the water cascading over the edge of our infinity pool. The set menu features grilled fish and meat; a vegetarian menu is also available. The multicourse dinner begins with freshly grilled pita and a garlic baguette with cheese. Next come a smoked aubergine salad with olive oil, chili, and feta cheese and the Greek salad souvlaki. Having finished the salads, you will move on to a series of small dishes. The Steamed Pancake Rolls are stuffed with pork neck barbequed Thai style, fresh vegetables, and a mango-chili salsa (the vegetarian version omits the pork). Our tacos are stuffed with Mediterranean seabass ceviche and topped with avocado, tomato, and white bean relish (vegetarians enjoy spiced lentil chili with the same toppings). We grill souvlaki at your table—seafood or vegetarian—with fresh herbs from our garden and add a garnish of pomegranate seeds. Next off the grill comes Japanese Style Smoked Beef (or beetroot grilled in the same manner). The next offering is crispy—fried chicken or tofu with sweet and spicy sauce. Finish with macaroni and cheese before sampling our three dessert offerings. Our musicians set a relaxed mood under the starlight. The Barbeque under the Stars runs at least once weekly for the remainder of the season. Reservations are recommended.
