Wonderful service and spectacular food in a quiet location away from the sunset crowds. Our food selections were perfect with wine to match. A hidden gem.

We visited Oia a second time specifically as a result of a strong recommendation to dine at this restaurant. And boy were we rewarded! This restaurant is undoubtedly one of the foremost, most authentic and genuine Greek restaurants in Santorini. A GENUINELY family run restaurant in a truly authentic setting, this restaurant is cosy, welcoming, authentic and, above all serves... More

Great 'off the tourist path' restaurant in Oia! We visited Kandouni this October for our 1 year anniversary as a recommendation from our hotel Canaves Oia an couldn't have enjoyed it more. The staff was friendly and highly accommodating, the food was well prepared with many traditional options, but top quality! Look forward to going back when we return.

Went there for dinner on first night in Santorini with family. Nice restaurant with unique deco. Run by family owners who are very nice to children and offered great hospitality and even gave us a map of Oia and explained the places of interests around in town. Overall very friendly place to eat.

We ate in Kandouni on our last night on our October stay and as the weather was getting cooler having the option of outdoor or beautiful indoor setting and good food was the perfect way to end our trip. The menu is not big but has some very well prepared choices.

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
