I often plan my holiday dining around Trip Advisor recommendations, but we randomly stumbled across Pelekanos on a hot summer afternoon in July. We had no idea if the upstairs dining area would be full of coach-loads of tourists but were pleasantly surprised. Around midday on a Friday, the place was calm and civilized. A few couples and small groups... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant during our two-week trip to Italy & Greece in 2012. I have never in my life seen a view like this. This small family-owned restaurant has amazing food and impeccable service. My father even tried the Yellow Donkey beer and loved it so much, they gave him the glass to bring home. Highly recommend!

My friends and I chose this restaurant based purely on recommendations that it had great views of the sunset. However, we didn't realize it also had an excellent view of the caldera, and the food and service would be so good. Our waiter was friendly and made great menu recommendations, and the food was the best we ate in Oia.... More

Stopped in here for a frappe coffee. We were 6 in our group and were served immediately. The coffees were good. The 360 degree views are amazing. Makes you want to stay all day. Whoever visits Oia should definitely take a break on this rooftop restaurant.

This restaurant is amazing. You have a breathtaking view over the sea and Oia! The service is wonderful and the food is great. Oia is crowded during the day. You can literally walk over the heads of the tourists. But when you go up at pelekanos there is peace and it is very quiet. Even during the day when there... More

We were visiting Oia just to see the famous sunset for a night. We hadn't booked anything in advance and we had heard that you have to be there 2 hours in advance. We found this restaurant and thought it would be great to eat dinner and watch the sunset. We enquired about a table for dinner and there was... More

As cruise passengers, we only had a short time in Oia. I had made a reservation with Pelekanos via email before our trip. We stopped in before our reserved time to see if they could increase our party to 4; they were very accommodating and even asked which table we would like reserved. The food was superb, the Santorini wine... More

Tried booking a table for the evening but as expected it was fully booked. The 360 views and the sunset makes this place one of the most sought out places for dinner. Came for our last lunch in Santorini and this place is a gem. Probably has the best views for any restaurant in oia. The food is good and... More
