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

The staff were really attentive but not intrusive and the food was amazing and reasonalbly priced you can get pasta dishes from 10 euro and meat/poultry/fish from... More

We came here based on the many positive reviews this place boasts, and can testify everything written positive is true. First, the food is delicious. We had sardines for starter, lamb and minced meat (they're called mini burgers but look like a flattened meat balls in delicious red sauce) - everything was absolutely delicious. Service was great and very attentive.... More

Me and my husband had a lovely evening here, the atmosphere and the service was excellent. But the food was at best average unfortunately. I had spaghetti with oil, garlic coriander and cherry tomatoes. It was very bland as there was not enough oil or seasoning, and the garlic was overlooked which have the whole dish an unpleasant taste. The... More
