Outstanding food!

Amazing! We were lucky enough to get in without a reservation, but I definitely recommend making a reservation. Farm to table, everything fresh, outstanding. Some of the best food I ate on my trip.

The service is fantastic and charismatic, the food is divine, and the overall ambience is cozy and authentic, with dim lighting to set the mood. Bottom line, eat here !

No views of the sunset but one of the best restaurants in town! Gorgeous courtyard setting, authentic tasty food and very friendly service. Booking highly recommended!

Had a reservation for 8 pm in mid July. When we came in there were few people and the service was good. We ordered five different starters, which ranged from good to mediocre. The ambiance out on the patio was nice, but when it started to get crowded around 9 pm the service level quickly deteriorated. Asked for the check... More

Arrived without a booking and were greeted amicably and seen to a table. Service was slow to take our order so we sat with just water for some time. The main course was nice, though I would prefer not to have balsamic vinegar on my rice. After waiting again a long time to be served we asked to see the... More

Went here the first night we arrived in Oia, trying to avoid the crowds viewing the sunset. Found it a bit pretentious and was the most expensive meal we had in our 14 days in Greece. Food was ok just overpriced.

If you're looking for good traditional Greek food somewhere quiet away from the droves of tourists on the caldera Main Street this is the place to go.

During our stay in Oia, we had the pleasure of visiting this restaurant. We came in without a reservation and they made sure to accommodate us. Spyros was extremely welcoming and very knowledgeable of his family's business, recipe's and restaurant. The food was outstanding, the restaurant's atmosphere is very charming and the service was very personable. Our only regret is... More

Candouni was so good, my husband and I went twice during our stay in Oia. You will definitely need a reservation. Friendly service with delicious, fresh food. The owner meets you at your table and goes over the menu, giving his recommendations. You won't be disappointed with anything you order. Be sure to end your meal with the baklava! It... More
