So I can recommend almost everything on the menu. I barely ate anywhere else the week I was there. The prices are reasonable too. But off the beaten track so ask at your hotel. The service was usually good but on the last time I went they kept us waiting for over 40 minutes after the first course so we... More

Roka is a place for fine Greek Cuisine at a very reasonable price. Frequented by the locals and usually extremely busy. Meals are excellent especially the Octopus in reduced wine and the mushroom rissoto. Folks are very cordial and are not in a hurry to turn tables. Service is a little slow but well worth the wait! Hard to find... More

Enjoyed a nice quiet meal here, good selection of traditional food, the food was served very fast between courses which didn't really give one time to relax.My starter was really tasty but the main was dry and lets say ' avearage'

Off the beaten path. This is where the locals eat. This place makes the best risotto.. Maybe worldwide. Well priced and delicious. Happy to have had my last dinner in Greece here! Bravo!

This restaurant was reccommended by a local at our hotel. It was difficult to find....but so worth it. It was a charming, hidden gem, frequented primarily by locals. The food was terrific, the service was wonderful and the ambiance was sublime.

We had dinner at Roka. Food was hit and miss : - Xitipiti was spicy, but too salty - mushroom risotto was overcooked - octopus in red wine sauce was good - no desserts available, except for ice creams The service was discrete to point of being inexistent. Disappointing after hearing so much recommendations on this restaurant.

We enjoyed our dinner at Roka. We had the spicy cold cheese dip, the Greek salad and the pork tenderloin. We normally prefer seafood, but our waiter was really pushing any type of meat on us, so I'm not sure if that's just his preference or if it's their specialty. Everything was good and we enjoyed the meal.

Roka is a little off the beaten track in Oia, but the reward awaits at the end of the search. Lovely quaint little restaurant with three separate eating areas, courtyard, indoors, and outdoor patio. Menu was a bit limited being the end of the tourist season, but the veal pasta dish and eggplant baked in a clay pot were both... More

The food was excellent!! We tried the pork tenderloin with creamy sauce, the octopus in red wine sauce, slow braised lamb pasta, and Roka salad. I couldn't decide which one was my favorite because they all tasted great! I could eat here everyday if I could! The prices aren't too bad either! An absolute must in Oia!
