We chose this restaurant for the view of the sunset. But it is so much more than a location! The food was amazing. The service was exceptional - Thank you Irini and the rest of the staff! The atmosphere is excellent! Loved everything! Highly recommended!

We went to Pelekanos restaurant for dinner. We had not made a reservation but were lucky enough to get a table. We ordered the lamb shank and the salmon linguine followed by a strawberry cheesecake. All the food was very good and the service was...friendly and fast.More

The best Moussaka I've ever had.... beautifully presented, fantastic flavour. Made the staple, comforting Moussaka into a fine dining dish, very successfully. The meze starter (4 dishes) was great, albeit we had to ask for more pitta bread, which is a bit minimal, but that...was no problem. My partner had lovely pork fillet, again beautifully presented. Washed down with an extraordinarily beautiful sunset, and several glasses of house red and white ( which was very drinkable). We were served by Irini, who was such a lovely person, so gentle and helpful, which again confirmed to us, if further confirmation was needed, that the Greeks are one of the most hospitable, friendly and lovely folks of the world.More

Really nice experience - owner and staff are so friendly. When we arrived they asked us to wait 5 minutes for a great table as we had reserved and prepaid- ended up with a fantastic corner table. All of the food was great but the...highlight was the tomato fritter appetizer - I think that’s the best think I ate the whole trip. Overall - good restaurant, great view, worth the trip (but if only had one night, would do Roka over anywhere else).More

Amazing hidden restaurant with a panoramic view of the sea and sunset. Beautiful food, fine dining but with huge portions. Great value, great menu and very friendly service, a must visit. The cherry tomatoe fritters are to die for.

We were in a last minute rush to find somewhere as we’d found out our booking in Amoudi Bay had a €250 minimum spend (?!) and we came across Pelekanos across from our hotel. Loved the vibe (and the incredible view!) so booked in for...dinner. They have a great view for sunset but sadly we had left it too late to make a reservation for that, definitely next time. Food was great, seafood was really well prepared and fresh. Staff were so so attentive and on the ball, nothing was too much trouble for them. Never once felt rushed and for Oia their prices were very reasonable, I would absolutely recommend.More

We tried to book a table online for Pelekanos but had left it too late and there was no availability for the whole week that we were in Oia. I decided to email them and we were delighted that they could squeeze us in one...evening. We enjoyed it so much that we asked if they could fit us in again on our last night! They kindly did this for us and reserved us the table that we had requested. The whole 2 experiences were wonderful. The food was beautiful, so were the cocktails and the view from the restaurant was amazing. But what makes this restaurant stand out above the rest are the staff. They are all so kind and friendly and take the time to chat to everyone and even offer to take photos for you. This was by far our favourite restaurant in Santorini. We fully recommend dinning here, it really is lovely.More

We booked a table here for the wonderful views, we’d gone for a drink in the day and were so impressed with the service and views we booked for later in the week. We chose the table we wanted too. We were greeted warmly by...our lovely waitress, Zoe. We were given plenty of time to peruse the menu and finally decided on the sharing breads to start, which was delicious and plentiful with lots of variety and dips, for the mains we both chose the lamb shank, OMG it was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented, just perfect. No room for afters 😔 Zoe was so attentive all evening, she took pictures of us and the stunning sunset views. Also, compared to other restaurants in Oia it was great value for money so make sure you visit if you’re going to Oia.More
