Description: Oklaca - on Skala's sunset beach, 7 minutes away from the main square- is the only place in Patmos where to enjoy one of the best sunset of Patmos with genuine italian food. Our cooking takes advantage of a careful selection of fresh, local ingredients, and great expertise goes into preparing our dishes, with an inspiration that springs from the soul of the Mediterranean. Our menu includes dishes from the classic Neapolitan tradition, which we interpret with respectful simplicity and offer with every detail natural and authentic. The result is a zestful and wonderfully satisfying cuisine perfectly in harmony with the atmosphere and life-style of this wild and natural corner of the island. We pair them with wines that are truly the expression of our soul, which, year after year, we select with passion and painstaking attention.

Altough this was our third great summer in Patmos, we only discovered this year this stylish yet easygoing authentic Italian restaurant at the water's edge. Indeed, the fact it is on the less developed Western side of the Skala--about a ten minute walk from the center--makes it a quiet place to discover rather than to stumble upon, and so unlike...

Not only the Italian food from cook Claudio, but also the whole team (Enrico and his wife and friendly staff) made us come back a second night, during out trip at the end of September. We didn't know about this wonderful place outside of the centre of Skala and while looking for a sunset location we were lucky to run... More

We were a party of 50 people. Everything ran smoothly and professionally from start to end. Good food. Superb scenery. Professional service. I'd go again.

We ate in this restaurant twice. The food was remarkable. The second visit was for our 35th Wedding Anniversary and they made a fuss of us. The staff were all efficient and pleasant. On the first visit we had parmigiana and pasta with a wonderful sauce. On the second visit I had another wonderful pasta dish. Thoroughly recommend this great... More

My wife and is had a wonderful experience. We saw the sunset over a prosecco. The service was impeccable and food ditto. We also had a very nice French couple Jean-Marc & Marie at the neighbor table. We we ended up sharing a bottle of wine after dinner with them. A must to visit when you are at Patmos. Good... More

Oklaca is on the backside of Skala, but easy to find, down the main shopping street and straight ahead til you arrive at Hoklakas Beach. Beautiful quiet space looking over the beach to the sunset. The food and service was good, we had a nice carpaccio with the house white to start, all very good. Between courses, we switched to... More

What a find here on Patmos! We had dinner here twice over a 10 day island stay and I must say it was excellent in many ways. The meals were top notch, the views and atmosphere overtly tranquil what with the ocean mere feet from the restaurant combined with a western exposure to glorious sunsets and gentle breeze. The service... More

We went to this restaurant when it had just opened for the season. The Owner and our waiter were charming. I had pasta with pesto and green beans and potatoes. I believe the pesto was doctored pesto sauce from a jar which I found disappointing. The gnocchi with tomato sauce and mozzarela were home made and delicious and the pasta... More

Excellent food. Fresh, tasty and well presented. Amazing sunset views! Owners were very kind and welcoming to us. Very friendly staff with amazing views of the sunset while you eat! It was a great night out. Patmos restaurants are generally all good but this one was amazing! Would definitely recommend this place for dinner and can't wait to go back!... More
