We dined here one evening while staying in Oia. With the candlelit tables, beautiful piano music playing with spectacular views; this made pelekanos a real romantic gem. The food was delightful and service was very good. It is a little more pricy, but what isn't in Santorini, Oia? Really - This place is well worth it!

We decided to try Pelekanos because the view looked amazing. It was!!! And the food was excellent too! We had so much fun, we went back 2 more times during our 2 weeks in Oia! The staff is wonderful! Try the meatballs…they are excellent!

We were visiting Oia around lunch time and looking for a place to eat and found this restaurant by accident. Just wandering around taking pictures when I say the sign for this restaurant and the steep yellow stairs so we went up them and had a very good lunch. The food and the service was very good and the view... More

The view is stunning. A perfect way to end my sightseeing in Oia. The food was delicious as well. The tzatiki was amazing and the greek salad was equally as good. It was a little more expensive than other restaurants but everything is fairly expensive in this village. So, so beautiful!

Hidden away up some steps the Pelekanos is quite lovely with glass all around and stunning 360 degree views of the sea, the distant islands and the town. We had a light lunch and tried the local wine and spent a few peaceful hours looking at the sea. Would highly recommend.

View and surroundings second to none plus an awesome lunch and a great waiter. The tzatiki, salmon & greek salad were amazing and I loved the local wine.

This is the only restaurant I visited twice during our trip to Greece. First, we went to here taste lobster pasta for late dinner and found out that this is the perfect place for sunset. So we made a reservation for the next day dinner. Service is also great.

Great food a little pricey. The wine was excellent and I am not a white wine person. The red was just as good. The restaurant is on a rooftop and had an excellent view.

We ate here on our first night in santorini. We were treated very nicely and offered blankets as it was a bit cold that night. I had a pasta dish and a mojito cocktail which was simply delicious. There is a beautiful view from the terrace restaurant. A lovely first dinner.

we were not there for the sunset but it would have been a good place for that. We were there in the afternoon and had lovely service and a lovely lunch of different kinds of grilled cheese. perfect. very enjoyable.
