Upon our first night in Santorini we found ourselves at a loss for where to eat with the many charming restaurants and wonderful menus available. We stumbled upon Candouni - a family run restaurant of Greeks who live in Canada but (presumably?) come down in the summers to run the restaurant. Our waiter was the son of the chef (mama!)... More

This restaurant is in a small alley off the main street about 30 seconds from Roka which I loved...! My partner had a terrific meal. Mine was average. €115 for 3 courses for 2 people was about double what we paid everywhere else we ate. He would recommend the lamb. I'd recommend the chocolate soufflé!

We came across this hidden gem by accident, as it is down a very small alley. We were impressed by the friendly staff and the lovely romantic atmosphere. It is enclosed and lit by candles in the wall with the wax allowed to pour out and solidify like many pieces of coral. The menu was well set out and we... More

During our stay on Santorini, we went there several times to enjoy friendly and professional service, nice ambiente and excellent food. A little difficult to find, but all locals know it. Try the lamb.

Kandouni is a charming family run restaurant that appears totally committed to providing exceptional food and service. By far the best place we are at in Santorini. So we ended up eating there twice. Can get a little busy so definitely book in advance.

Had a light dinner, which was delicious. A great menu in a great location away from the tourist trail.

Great atmosphere, warm service, wonderful food! I had the baked fish I'd salt and it was tender and tasty, my husband had pasta with olives, capers and tomatoes and he loved it. Really a romantic spot, worth the search.

We spent our last night on Santorini at Kandouni at the recommendation of our (wonderful) hotel, Anteliz Suites. We parked on the other end of Oia and had a lovely walk through town on the Caldera side then picked out way to the restaurant at the back side along a quiet alley. The nice young guy (Spyros?) who was running... More
