So delicious we ate here twice

We ate lunch here one day, ordered the local wine in a carafe, there are 2 sizes - it was delicious! We snacked on fried calamari, Manouri cheese (awesome) and fava bean dip. A few nights later we went to dinner and had eggplant in clay pot, risotto with chicken, ravioli stuffed with anthotiro... read more

We stayed for a week in Oia and tried different restaurants recommended by locals, Roka remains on top of our list out of the ones we enjoyed. It is authentic Greek, away from the crowds, has a back sea view from the terrace and the food was delicious. The lamb shank and pasta dishes were very very good as well... More

Such a lovely place, very kind service and delicious food!!! It is situated in a very nice small alley behind the central streets of Oia which makes it unique! Definitely recommended!

Roca food was very disappointing.The fried calamari was overdone ,too hard and chewy.. Not fresh either. Meatball does not taste fragrant either. Personally , our family was much disappointed with the food.. Before the trip, we were looking forward to try in this restaurant due to hype .. But after the experience,it's No No . Alexandra the Great restaurant is... More

The food is just wonderful. If we ever find ourselves back in Oia, we'll definitely eat here again. I thought it wasn't expensive either. My only regret is we waited til the last day to eat here. We probably would've eaten there more than once.

We ate here 2 nights during our stay in Oia. It was worth seeking out down a laneway or two! The food is imaginative local cuisine, with great value house wines! A really relaxed atmosphere on a balmy evening...please visit Roka.

Tucked away down one of many picturesque and characteristic alleyways in Oia, you would never find this restaurant from the road. You would either have to stumble across it by foot or be told about it; a recommendation took us there and we found a gem of a place. Quiet of course (midweek in December) but one of about three...

My family and I ate here for two consecutive nights and loved it. It was suggested by Chelidonia Villa owners.

So I can recommend almost everything on the menu. I barely ate anywhere else the week I was there. The prices are reasonable too. But off the beaten track so ask at your hotel. The service was usually good but on the last time I went they kept us waiting for over 40 minutes after the first course so we... More
