Best meal of the entire trip!

We found Kandouni on our last night on Santorini, and had an amazing experience farewell dinner. The ambiance is romantic and quiet, yet you also feel as though you are dining in a cozy home.

We were recommended this restaurant by our host at Zoe Traditional House in Oia (a fantastic place to stay). Our host had been most reliable with many other suggestions so, even after reading a few negative reviews on TA, we decided to try this venue out for ourselves. Both the service and the food were wonderful. Our server was most... More

I was recommended this restaurant by a friend and he was right! The ambiance is beautiful and romantic. The food was delicious and the waiter knows about all his wines to the T. I recomend this restaurant to anyone who goes to santorini.I cant wait to go back to have some fish!

Our group of five walked past Kandouni and decided to have dinner there. The restaurant is off the main strip, so there aren't any views. However, the food is very good. The menu is not your standard Greek tavern fare, and offers some different dishes. The night we were there we had a local rooster dish! Kandouni is a family... More

This restaurant was really delicious. The owner and his mother work there with I think one other employee. The service was excellent. The owner waited on us and gave us wonderful recommendations. We all had different selections and each of us loved the entrees we chose. The baklava and chocolate lava cake were exceptional. We ended up eating there several... More

We should have enjoyed this more as the lamb shank was excellent although the idea of a pork fillet was lost in translation. But there was only one other table of customers and this was clearly a dampener for the restaurant with many tables set in anticipation of a fine evening. Service was excellent when we arrived but faded and... More

Having been recommended by a friend staying on the island for 4 months we decided to go here to celebrate my 40th. Without going into too much detail this is a good restaurant in terms of food and decor, however, is owned/run by an absolute psychopath who felt it right to sarcastically proposition a sexual act to fulfil the night's...

My husband and I have been travelling in Greece with our adult daughter for two weeks. We've eaten all meals in restaurants and they have generally been pretty good. But this was the first restaurant that had really classy food. We knew nothing about it. I just liked the look of it. White table cloths always draw me in. Unfortunately... More

I found this restaurant while discovering Oia with my family, and felt in love with it at first eyesight. One of the owners who was serving us, was very friendly and knew how to sell, advising on dishes and saying that everything was fresh and that he ate what customers eat. All was well until I complained about my Lamb,... More
