This place is so cute. The food was delicious and the recommended bottle of wine was perfect with our slow cooked lamb. We had a great time. The one weird part was our server who made weird jokes, that's why I'm giving this a 4...star instead of 5.More

DISHONEST PLACE FULL OF TOURIST TRAPS! We have ordered 3 little vegetarian mezes plus a salad and payed... 90 euros! Glass of wine 12 euro each, bread 7 euros, bottle of water god knows how much plus service not included in the bill... The food...was good but totally not worth it's price. Beware!More

After an earlier visit, we chose Candouni for the last night of our holiday, simply because we had felt so welcome and been so well fed! We follow a plant based diet and the team there could not have been more helpful in taking us...through the menu options and adapting some dishes to make them vegan-friendly. As well as the staff and the food, this is a great setting and well worth seeking out. We felt like guests and not just clients. Thanks Candouni team!More

The owner is very rude to the visitors, the food is bad and service is horrible. I don’t understand why this place has good rating??? Tourists shall ignore it so that it is out of business very quickly.

The Candouni was recommended to us as a place we would get authentic Greek food in a relaxed atmosphere. We were lucky enough to go when there was live Greek music playing which added to the atmosphere. The restaurant is tucked away down one of...the side streets and some of the tables are in an open air courtyard. The Maitre D' was very knowledgeable about his dishes and took time to explain them to us and recommend a wine. The food was hearty and tasty, I had the Rooster with rice - delicious and plenty of it! Fine dining it is not - and all the better for it!More

We were walking around Oia and came across this restaurant and saw they were having live music the next night so we made a reservation. It was absolutely amazing! The food was delicious but the staff was top notch! The owner/head server made us feel...so welcomed! We would go back anytime and I would definitely recommend to anyone!More

Loved this place. Live Greek music but not the tacky kind. Just very classy. The owner greeted & treated us like old friends. Food was amazing. If you want cheap food then go elsewhere but they looked after us so well. The young lad worked...so hard and had a very quick-witted nature (we asked for the dessert menu and he told us it was him, before listing all the possibilities). The owner sees you as guests and I’m guessing from some of the very low number of poor reviews, he just didn’t click with them. Visit here, relax and have a laugh. The owner sat and chatted with the guests and brought us dessert wine on the house. Oh and we have to mention the two lovable daft “house” dogs!More

We thought our food was very good, except for the bread, which was incredibly stale. We asked for the 1 euro bread, and got the 3.50 per person bread. We asked for sparkling water, got one bottle, and were charged 3.50 euros per person! When...we asked about it, the manager acted offended and said we had asked for the more expensive bread. We did enjoy the music, but we felt a bit cheated.More

One of our favorite dinners in Greece! The food was perfection, the service was amazing/fun, the live music (just on certain nights) was beautiful and the ambience was pure European romance <3

Hard to fathom the good reviews. The atmosphere and setting seem okay, but this place can’t do the basics and uses odd tactics in apparent attempt to charge even more than the already high (even for Santorini) prices. Tiri sagonaki (fried cheese) was served cold...and almost raw - it should have been melty and delicious. Other food indifferent or unpleasant. We love Greek food and, in spite of being veggie, always have a great range of option and clean our plates but we couldn't here. The choices here were minimal; food came in the wrong order and slowly. The waiting were kind but the owner has an oddly defensive and aggressive manner. There seem to be too few staff and not enough thought in the food despite the owner's claims of excellence. Best to avoid.More
