This is a quaint family-run restaurant with an amazing atmosphere and absolutely delicious cuisine!!!! The owner was very friendly and welcoming. We ate there a few times - it was just a few steps down the narrow lane from the Aethrio Hotel where we were staying.

The food and the service was absolutely amazing! If you are in Oia, stop there after watching the sunset!

This was our FAVORITE restaurant in Kandouni. The family is originally from Canada and their son and his girlfriend (both lovely) were our servers. The entire night was relaxed and enjoyable and the food and wine were INCREDIBLE! I would STRONGLY recommend this place to EVERYONE visiting Oia!

We 'bumped' into colleges friends on Oia and found this secret by chance walking through town. It isn't on the main path and doesn't have the sunset views, but it more than makes up for it in good, wine and service. Don't let the view be your main factor...this a great find and we were treated like royalty. Great food... More

The servers and owners made us feel like we were celebrities! The food was amazing, service was outstanding. Before we knew it it was after midnight and we were the only ones there. Never once did we feel pressured to leave. One of the best experiences we had on our trip. We would highly recommend you find this restaurant while... More

Let me just start by saying that the staff was so friendly here. We felt right at home and our waitress was so warm and gave us great recommendations. We did not find that at other restaurants we ate at on the island. The ambience is wonderful, loved the candle wax dripping on the walls. Oia is an extremely tourist... More

What I enjoyed most about this restaurant was the cozy courtyard setting and the friendly and engaging service. The food was also very good. I would definitely go back.

We were recommended this place by a local, it's off the beaten path on the Caldera near Main Square church. Refreshingly not like the countless other exorbitantly priced tourist trap restaurants on the Caldera serving mediocre fare, this is a lovely family run place serving excellent quality food. We had the eggplant tian (€11), grilled shrimp with veg and garlic... More

I highly recommend this place. It is a family owned business with family recipes used. The baklava was the most delicious baklava I have ever eaten, with hand crushed nuts between the layers.
