My boyfriend and I ended up going here after having walked around Oia for ages trying to find a restaurant that suited it us. It was packed and we had to wait a little to be seated, but it was worth it. The meal was delicious, the waiters were nice and the house wine was good. The bill only came... More

Located right in the edge of the Crater and in the main alley (actually a pedestrian walkway) of Oia, having dinner in this restaurant was also remarkable for the yummy cooked Octopus served with rice and local wine dressing. Definitely a good choice ! (both the dish and the restaurant)

The sun was starting to set and we were getting hungry. The descriptions on Skala's menu were too good to pass up. We didn't have reservations and expected that their might be a long wait, but were actually seated pretty quickly. However, once seated, we waited a really long time to even be asked for our drink orders. When our... More

Our 2nd evening in Santorini and we were looking for authentic Greek fare, we were not disappointed. Lamb, pork, baklava. Good friendly service and great views (although no sunset).

As the title states, it was dinner with a view. We had the octopus and mussels. I would reccomend the mussels if you like the taste of ocean and butter but the octopus was meh. It tastes good but not what I expected octopus to be. On the upside, it was really tender! The entrees were lovely. The cheese croquet... More

We had brunch here our last day on Santorini. The brunch was lovely and the view overlooking the caldera was breathtaking. We got fruit salad for the table (very nice). I had a homemade sausage pie (excellent), my husband had cheese pie (okay, not homemade), my son had an omelet (very good), and my daughter had chocolate and banana crepes... More

We visited Athens, Crete and Santorini on our trip, and this was by far the best meal and experience. We went in a large group of 18 and were promptly seated though the place was packed! Everything we ordered was delicious and we ordered a lot of items. Seafood salad, lamb, mousaka, pork, you cant go wrong. The homemade Baklava... More

Certainly one for servicing the day trippers. Good location and attentive service, but perhaps we chose our food badly. Not up to the basic standards. You can always tell from the quality of the salads and Tsiki what the food will be like. Fast greek food, very busy with singlet wearing, unwashed day trippers. Sorry. Not again for me.

We came here for lunch and grabbed a table with a wonderful view of the caldera. We proceeded to enjoy a leisurely lunch over the next few hours. Service was prompt and efficient. For appetizers we enjoyed the lava and the spinach & cheese pie. The lava (split peas) were tasty and the pies came out hot and tasty. For... More
