You know a place has good Greek food when the local Greeks tell you that they love the food there. We were recommended this place and boy are we glad we were. Service was good and the staff were friendly. Prices were reasonable. Not only was the food so good we went back again the next night, we also loved... More

So glad this little gem was open for our stay in Oia. The owner of the restaurant was lovely and so was the food. We ordered entree, salad and main, mouth watering dishes. Entree was a beautiful eggplant dish, salad the best beetroot salad I have ever had, and the fish dish I ordered was amazing! Oh, and we also... More

This cozy place is hidden, so unless you know it (or you ask the way to it) you probably won't come across it. Though it's worth it) Food is simple but very well cooked. All plates are made like a Greek mum would cook at home (not keeping in mind touristic "hot" or "must try" plates). That's why probably many... More

We had dinner at Roka on our first night in Santorini. It is located on one of the smaller streets of Oia, easy enough to find, but off the main route. We had a great meal, food was excellent. Very tasty, fresh and authentic. Setting is informal and cosy (we were sat I side due to temperature). Staff was very... More

Excellent, homemade greek food. We had the grilled chicken in red wine source with sweet onions, which was the highlight. It was amazing. We also had the clay pot with egg plant, which was also very food. The only let down was the fresh fried potatoes, which were oven-baked french fries - however, all in all a great place for... More

After reading several positive reviews on TripAdvisor my girlfriend and I tracked down this bright but cosy place nestled on a back street away from the main hustle and bustle of Oia. The service was warm and attentive and the menu short, simple and authentic. The food was delicious: a light and fluffy crustless zucchini pie and the best tzatziki... More

This is an absolute hidden treasure. Not easy to find, hide in the narrow lanes with confused sign board between Roka and Poka, but the quality of the food is fantastic with wonderful garden seating. Quite-away from the tourist Main Street at Oia, nice staffs and really good value for money.

This is a top notch destination for food lovers. Their cuisine is both delicious and inspiring for those willing to walk off the beaten path to seek a pleasurable dining experience. This place possesses a tremendously warm family atmosphere where locals dine and you are engulfed in all that is Oia Santorini~
