Best Hotel Restaurant – European and International
Kitchen Club – Casa Cook Rhodes, Kolymbia, Greece
Just as it should be at an island retreat, Casa Cook life mostly takes place barefoot under the sky. The spatial arrangement takes its cues from this carefree mode. Core public areas form the hotel’s social hub, what we like to call our “Kitchen Club”, where an array of lounge and gathering areas include a bar, the restaurant and the main pool. Architecturally, the seamless spaces merge indoors and out, while the interior design also conveys a social and free-spirited character. Low, cushioned seating and oversized tables invite groups to gather and share, whereas hammocks and sunbeds promise a perfect time-out alone. Textured surfaces, like wood and canvas, are matched with playful prints and patterns. Retractable panoramic windows open to views of the pool as well as the hotel’s own greenhouse: a fragrant oasis of edible herbs.
Russian artist Karina Eibatova and Casa Cook’s design agency Lambs & Lions have created a stunning mural, which take pride of place in the restaurant. The piece show a range of animals, including mythical monkeys, birds and frogs, enjoying the lush vegetation. The designers wanted to reflect the hotel’s vibrant, bohemian character and its natural landscape.
Taking inspiration from the local tradition of sharing and gathering, the menu features inspiring Meze plates from Greece and its neighbours, plus tasty fare from the charcoal grill. From healthy to indulgent dishes, the focus is on fresh and high quality ingredients, most sourced from the island’s own producers.
Freedom of choice is the chief premise here and so guests are offered not only a broad range of culinary options, but also the flexibility to dine whenever they like. The kitchen is open from morning well into the night — for a big breakfast feast or a smoothie on the go.
