Lunch with a view

The service and food were great. We had very fresh yellow fin tuna and enjoyed every bit. The restaurant is a little tricky to find....but don't give up. It provides a different view of the island that is a nice change from the Caldera (not that the Caldera view is bad!).

I had chosen this restaurant due to its reviews from last season but we were disappointed. We started with a spicy dip, which we had to order bread to go with it. Why not include something to dip with, when offering dips on the menu. And after all that, it was overly spicy and not pleasant anyway. My husband had... More

We had visited Roka last year & we decided to go there again this year because it's a very good Greek restaurant! It's not on the main street of Oia & it's a bit out of the way & difficult to find but it's well worth the trouble! The food here is very well prepared & very fresh. I had... More

This place was cute and cozy and made you feel at home. Both indoor and outdoor areas, recommend making a reservation otherwise it may be hard to get a table. We ordered the seafood linguine which was delicious, but I've had better in the states. Also the lamb, which was really good but served with French fries which were sub... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our host at Zoe Traditional House and we were definitely happy with our choice. As we approached the entrance to the venue a tourist called out "you have to try the eggplant in a ceramic dish". We did and it was superb. Our entire meal was just delicious. Well worth a visit.

If you want really good Greek food with a great view and friendly service then I surgest you try Roka ! The house wine was really good and the food was delusious. I'd recommend you make a reservation if you want a table with a great view.

Loved this place, would definitely go back. The food was very good, not mind blowing but I would highly recommend eating here. The service was exceptional!! After we ordered the owner mentioned their credit card machine wasn't working, so we decided to take one appetizer out because we didn't have enough cash. However the owner insisted not to worry about... More

The hotel staff recommended this restaurant to us and they were so right. A small family run restaurant serving very tasty food, thoroughly deserves its good rating. Good luck finding it though, we nearly gave up until we stumbled upon it accidentally!

The octopus cooked in sweet wine sauce wad fabulous. The octopus was cooked perfectly tender and the sauce was sweetened just with the right amount and scented beautifully with the wine. Not to mention the mashed fava beans were a delight. It was creamy and nutty to taste. Absolutely gorgeous..... The bass fish was cooked perfectly moist with the perfectly... More
