Best Dining in Oia

Roka was hands down the best meal we had in Greece. Roka is not easy to find which adds to the mystique of the place. Finding it was like finding water in a desert, but week worth the search. The atmosphere is cozy and warm. It felt like we were eating in someone's house and perhaps this is... read more

This place was a little hard to find but so glad we found it in the end. The food was absolutely delicious. Something you would get in a fine dining restaurant without the price tag. I had the gnocchi Gorgonzola with walnuts and my partner had the stuffed chicken breast with Parmesan sauce. Both dishes were incredible. The gnocchi was... More

One of the best restaurants in Oia! Off the beaten path which is nice... more restaurants are right on the walkway... with a spectacular sunset view. Staff are fantastic and extremely knowledgable. Add this one to your list, you will not be disappointed. I would do dinner around 7:30/8p to ensure a good seat for the sunset!

We ate at this restaurant after walking around Ia. It's down a back street, away from the main crowds and the restaurant was busy, a reservation is needed unless you want to wait. We shared a very nice bottle of local wine, fava and 'green pies' as starters, both were nice. I had calamari as a main which were not... More

This was our favorite restaurant in Santorini. The service was great- our waiter was so nice and helpful, and the food was amazing. Most of the restaurant books up really fast with reservations, but if you go later at night (after 9pm) you can usually get right in.

We had an objective to have a romantic dinner in a place of Greek cuisine, view to sunset, a bit far from the busy street and Roka delivered it :) We enjoyed our time there. The service was exceptional! Efharisto! :)

I admit this was our first taste of Greek food, but what an introduction! The restaurant is a brief walk off the main track but worth seeking out. The service was very good and the atmosphere of the restaurant pleasant and quaint. The view is lovely, perhaps not as spectacular as other restaurants in Oia, but there are so many... More

Casual lunch at this taverna. A bit hard to find but PLEASE make the effort. The views are heavenly as they all are across santorini. The service is family style and laid back but attentive. The food will keep you here for hours. Do not miss.

We visited Roka for lunch. We had the Greek salad with the Greek, as opposed to Feta, cheese, and a couple Fix beers. It was a beautiful place. We sat out on the patio in the shade. The interior looked inviting. Would return for dinner.

Roka Tavern is located at a small alley, off Oia Main Street. As you come from the arch after the post office turn left, about 50 meters away, walking distance from Main Street Oia is about 100 meters after a few curve turns. We had problem finding the restaurant end up I asked the locals for help. So ask the... More
