“Want to go back...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

Located in the center of Oia, with views to Caldera, this typical greek restaurant is one of the best choices around. The enviroment is lovely, with quality service and lovely people around. Prices fully reflect the quality of the food. Dishes and drinks are delicious.

I stayed in Oia for 5 days, visiting Melitini every night.

“A nice place to watch the sunset-”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014 via mobile

We read the reviews and so took the time to find it. The staff were very welcoming and reserved us a lovely table to watch the sun setting. The food was ok, lots of greek meat with spices- we ordered pickles which were a good balance. If your looking for big plates of salad with fish- this isn't the place. Its very good for meaty tapas- also only does greek style drinks. (Santorini wine, ouzo, etc.) They did 'fresh' juices- but these were home made cordials with too much sugar for my taste. Not sure why its no. 2 in Oia- as there are far better restaurants- Dimitri's being far and away the best.

It is obvious that person`s review forces our customers to a competitor. She refers clearly the name of the competitor. It is supposed that those practices violate the rules of tripadvisor.
We will not refer on trip that fake and offensive review as not acceptable. The visitors can make their own conclusion and evaluations about all.

“Good simple home cooking, great service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

My partner and I came here after watching the sunset and had a lovely 'tapas' style meal. We sat on the terrace upstairs which had a lovely view but the seating can hurt your back after a while (no backs to the chairs). We were advised by the waitress on what to order and decided to have the 'pork from the frying pan', the Fava and a few other dishes. It was all very tasty and it is a very popular place to eat so reserve your table. The walk to the bus stop is about 10 min max.

“Tapas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

Tiny eatery! Lots of little dishes to try. Nice spot to watch the sunset. Very relaxing, can eat downstairs if stairs are a challenge.
