“Great food with a caldera view and reasonable prices; highly recommend,”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Thalami is a family-run restaurant on the caldera side in Oia, but before you get into the heart of town. The food is excellent and reasonable prices, especially considering the view...I highly recommend.

“nice people and tasty food - we ate all our meals here for three days!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

small family owned restaurant. eveybody we ran into - almost all of them for we ate both lunches and dinners at the place for three days straight - from the grandpa that runs the place to all the waiters and waitresses were super nice to us the first time we showed up.

my personal favorite is the stuffed calamari - a big squid stuffed with veggies, i had it at least twice. lamb, greek seafood spaghetti, grilled fish and a shrip dish were all good. yugurt with the grape sauce that grandma made with grapes from their backyard was to die for. the semi-sweet house red wine were great, too. i had a half liter jar of the wine for every meal. once i had a whole liter. too sweet? yes, but the delicious flavor and fragrance were too hard to pass.

prices this place has to offer weren't toruisty, either. our first meal at a different with less food, less quality, and a small beer and a soda ran us 50+ euro. our average tab at this place ran about 35 euros for the two of us with wine, water and soda.

if we come back to oia we will be eating all our meals here for sure. its location is also convenient - about some 100 feet from the blue domed church at the town center.

“Great Platters for groups of friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Excellent!! We ate here for my friend's birthday with 15 of us and they made the most delicious taylor-made platters with all our favorites. They really went the extra mile to look after us and the pricing is reasonable. We all enjoyed the view overlooking Oia, the sea and the neighboring islands.

It's also a great location to work online with a perfect view! Free Wifi, and plugs available. Friendly owner and staff. Best Musaka, too!!

“Cuisine paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Some of the best Greek food I've eaten, the Moussaka was unequaled. Huge portions, and the price very good.The staff are very warm and friendly, going out of their way to give the best service.

Great location for a group of friends, we had a birthday celebration and they made it special. The view is excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant.

“Nice enough”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Home style cooking - Calamari was huge & whole with a simple butter lemon sauce -Beef with pasta was soggy & uninspiring. Ouzo helped!
