Great lunch spot

hidden gem that was recommended to us by one of the shop vendors. We had a light lunch here pair with some local white wine. Must get the mussels and the spicy cheese dip! It was absolutely amazing. Beautiful views and very friendly owner :).

The restaurant had great views out the back. The food and service was ok. Not bad not good. It was average. Average priced. It's tucked away in the back streets of Oia. Cute and quaint.

This place is off the beaten track of the many restaurants with amazing view of the caldera Very nice and authentic without the price tag of the location Food is great , but gets really busy and you may have to wait a while for food

Roka was our joint first favourite restaurant in Oia. Most of the others offered food that was bland. Roka is the real authentic traditional deal. Not fancy, not overpriced - just plain good. Friendly staff (very) and a nice quiet location not far from the beaten track.

I am not sure if we caught them on a bad night, but waiting 30mins for cold appetizers is kind of ridiculous. That jaded my entire experience. The food was solid, but nothing special.

Great local food. Not for the view though. Super-authentic. Had the octopus in sweet wine, tzatziki, and a greek salad. Would recommend for a quiet lunch.

Roka is a lovely small tavern with good genuine food. I have some food allergies and the waiter went above and beyond to make sure I could find something suitable. The lamb was very tasty, so was my boyfriend's fish. Reasonably priced, would definitely go back, probably reserving an early table (around 8ish) to enjoy the sunset from the terrace

This place is almost impossible to find but is a nice respite from the OIA crowds Nice Greek food in a nice location, with a cute deck.
