Oia can certainly be a bit crowded in the evening but Roka will make you feel like you are on a quiet little island far away from people. The roasted eggplant with feta was wonderful. Service was terrific and the place could not be a more idillic setting. Very reasonable pricing!!!!

We went to Roka after sunset and did not have a reservation. We had to sit inside but the setting was simple and cute. We started with the spicy feta dip (amazing!) and greek sausage. Both starters were fantastic. We then had the ravioli and greek meatballs which were some of the best dishes we have had so far in... More

Was in Santorini on honeymoon with my wife. We had tons of amazing meals in Greece and Roka topped them all. We had the spicy dip, baked feta in honey, Caramelized octopus, and chicken risotto. All dishes were amazing. The house white wine was delicious and 500cc was only 4.5 euros!! Our entire bill was around 40 euros which is... More

This review only addresses the manners and hospitality of staff. Arrived shortly after sunset, were willing to wait for a table. Were told somewhat rudely that they were booked and did not have room for us. I understand not having availability. I think it is unacceptable to be shooed out of the restaurant as rudely as we were, especially in... More

Just a little outside the most crowded zone of Oia, you will find that hidden gem, Everything on the menu is interesting. One of our best meal in three weeks in greece. Excellent service also. Not expensive at all for what you get.

A little difficult to find, but really good food with a great service. Maybe not your typical "sunset restaurant" in Oia, but beats all the other restaurants with a very kind service and with great food.

I asked a local to recommend a lunch place and Roka was it. Given that it was difficult to find, I assumed that this was going to be amazing. I was disappointed. The mixed seafood was okay. I had the traditional Greek dessert, that perhaps it was just not to my taste buds. But, typically when you have two bites... More

This place was phenomenal. Everyone flocks to the restaurants with views to watch the sunset but that's too early to eat sometimes and I don't think the food was as good. You can easily grab some beers or wine and just go to the beach or plenty of other options (parking lots or street corners) to watch and then go... More

Roka is a wonderful taverna situated in a unassuming back alley in the picturesque village of Oia in Santorini. The cuisine is traditional Greek and the various dishes are reasonably priced and very well done. I would have given Roka five stars if the staff would extend the same courtesy and welcoming gestures (such as a complimentary digestive) to visiting... More
