I am over the moon about Kandouni -- every aspect of the restaurant experience here is amazing! I've tried many restaurants in Oia over several years, many are good, but this has to be the best. All my meals at Kandouni were more than memorable, they were exquisite! In addition, I chose Kandouni over all other places in Oia for my birthday dinner, and was not disappointed. The welcome is warm, the atmosphere friendly, the service terrific, the indoor and outdoor environment and décor marvelous. I sat each time in the semi-covered patio where the glow of the candles on tables and in wall niches cast a marvelous warm light, creating a really wonderful ambience which I loved. The interior rooms are beautifully and charmingly decorated as well. Combine all this with exquisite food served with pride by the two amazing waitpersons. These gentlemen handled everything with charm, skill and panache, even when the restaurant was suddenly filled to capacity with a large group. Mr. Panos, highly competent, is completely comfortable in at least 3 languages. As for dishes, I have many favorites, everything I had in my several visits was outstanding and delicious, beautifully prepared and presented. The beef filet was unbelievably tender and tasty. I loved the great beetroot salad, the amazing grilled mushrooms (starters), the fine pork tenderloin with apricot and prune sauce, the succulent walnut cake, and the superb chocolate mousse topped with candied orange. All delectable, satisfying, exquisite! I cannot wait to return here!!!
