This is a quaint little café off of the main pathway - they are tucked away by themselves. The courtyard is very pretty and the food great. The restaurant is very small - a reservation is recommended - we were turned away the first night. The path to get there is a bit uneven and dark - I would carry... More

Oia is crowded, sometimes to the point of being oppressive. However, this little restaurant in a back street doesn't have the view that everyone goes to Oia to see, which means that you can eat in a secluded courtyard with plants around you, or, when the restaurant is busier, in one of several rooms indoors, one of which has a...

We arrived very late and the two guys couldn't have been more welcoming. Food is basic Greek but very very good; what you would hope to find from a quaint taverna tucked away down a side street. Don't go if you are expecting nouveau cuisine or a Michelin star experience, but do go if you want a relaxed atmosphere and... More

Our hotel recommend this restaurant and so we went. The waitress was not very polite and the menu choices were very limited, compared to nearby competitors. Overpriced for the amount of food. The atmosphere was the best part of the experience.

We found the restaurant by chance, just walking in Oia and it smelt tasty around the area, we followed the smell to find the place. The place is a bit out of the tourist routs. The outdoor design was simple but it felt like home. The food was great! I ordered their Roka salad. It was like you would never... More

During our vacation on Santorini we went to Roka's 3 times and it was really excellent. Good traditional food, nice service and a cosy location for dinner. A little difficult to find, but all locals know it, so just ask for the way.

The food was great! We went later in the evening and the atmosphere was relaxed and quiet. I had the lamb with rice, my husband had meatballs with potatoes. Everything was delicious - I would recommend Roka for sure!

Roka is in Oia, it is where locals and people ‘in the know’ go for dinner as it is several blocks from the tourist trap with no view of the Santorini Caldera sunset. We found out about it from the hotel we stayed at (Anastasis in Imerovigli) and a friend who works at another restaurant in Oia. The 5 tables... More

Roka was our restaurant of choice when we stayed in Oia last year, and we're happy to report that it's still tops. You do need to book a day ahead (did someone really give a one star review because they couldn't get in??) but it's worth it. Lamb knuckle in lemon sauce the best meal so far this trip, chicken...
