Good food and great view of the sunset

This is a busy spot, the food is very good and the view of the sunset is even better. Will be hard for any who has severe mobility issues as the stairs are very narrow and winding. If some can help it is worth the views and of course the food. You might want to stop by and make reservations.... read more

My wife and I had our first meal on the island at the Pelekanos. No matter what time you get to the island, go to Pelekanos and get a seat on the top deck. The view is unlike any other. The fava beans are a must try and to die for.

We were recommended to go here by one of the local merchants & were not disappointed. The view was spectacular. We could watch the cruise ships come in at night with all their lights and loved the wait staff. The food was great. We even had a fabulous pastry for dessert & great wines.

We visited many restaurants in the week in Santorini and Mykonos and Pelekanos was by far the best! We booked a sunset table the day before and had the best seat in the house! Service great and food exceptional.

End of season dinner on a chilly night. The food was good and service very good. Blankets were provided to ward off the chill. Would definitely go back for another meal.

The owner and host was very hospitable, warm, and charming. We chatted with him quite a bit during and after our meal. He gave us a free santorini dessert wine which tasted good although it's not my thing We got the lamb shank for €19, the steamed mussels for €12.50, and a glass of house red. Total was €40 flat...

Stopped here for lunch (grilled halloumi and watermelon wedges with caramelised fig syrup and a cornbread muffin) then reserved a seat at the bar later to watch the sunset. Service was friendly and attentive without being intrusive, the food was delicious and reasonably priced and the view of the caldera and the volcano was beautiful.

tucked away up a flight of stairs and down an alley, this little restaurant has an amazing roof terrace, with fantastic views. The food was delicious too, lovely vegetarian options, which I don't usually have, but were divine.

This was our favorite place to eat during our 4 night stay in Oia. The food was great, as was the view and the service. The vibe was more to our liking than the other places we ate which all looked like they were set of for Valentines Day. :)
