Katharos Lounge is the BEST & ONLY fully vegan restaurant in all of Santorini. We stayed in Oia for 4 days and ate here every single day! The restaurant is situated right on Katharos beach so grab a spot on the patio for a beautiful...view while indulging in the many exceptional dishes of Katharos. It is the spot to be for lunch or dinner. Pro Tip: Make sure to get a dinner reservation, especially during peak season, to watch the sunset! The food is absolutely spectacular- light, comforting, healthy, and delicious. There is not one plate that we ordered during our many visits that we did not absolutely love. Top highlights were the Couscous, Smokey-harissa cauliflower, BBQ pulled “pork” mini burgers, strapechada, and the beetroot salad. If you are looking for a restaurant that suits all needs, whether you are vegan or not, you will love Katharos!More

A magical dream place in front of the ocean, everything is like an explosion of mediterranean flavors. We ordered a grilled eggplant and walnut dip, veggie stack with orange sesame sauce and phyllo rolls with sweet potato and spinach. Everything was delicious.

Healthy vegan food with sunset - Amazing, quiet location by the sea, far from the busy touristy areas. Great selection of vegan meals. Best vegan dessert we had on the island (fresh fruit cobbler). Would come back.

One of the best views and a fantastic sunset. However, the food was outrageously overpriced, and wasn’t incredible Would recommend for drinks at sunset though

Wanted to eat there everyday as the food was so good and the service was incredible. Even if your not vegan do yourself a favour and go visit. Only a 10 minute walk from Oia 🏃‍♂️❤️

We were so excited to find this gorgeous all vegan mezze bar for our last dinner in Santorini! They have traditional Greek dishes as well as some other options, all with outstanding unique flavour combos. Beautiful place to watch the sunset!

My husband found this Meze Bar by chance and we asked out hotel to book it for us. It is down a very steep hill and just above Katharos beach ( I wouldn't walk there you definitely need a taxi). The setting is gorgeous, you...get a spectacular view of the sunset, matched only by the quality of service and food. It was so good we went back. It would be difficult to pick out our favorite meze, we worked our way though most of them! The Fruit cobbler is to die for so leave some room for it. A must for vegans and everyone else !More

Lovely position overlooking the beach, and by far the most relaxing we have been too on our trip! We shared a few dishes between us, which were all delicious! It was really lovely to have an offering of something different. I would highly recommend to...anyone with allergies. If you ask they have a version of the menu listing all the ingredients of each dish, and what they can swap. Being gluten intolerant, it really filled me with confidence of what I was eating and that no errors would be made. The staff are so lovely, very swift service but without making you feel rushed. They also took some lovely photos for us using the mirrors on the wall. We enjoyed it so much we rebooked whilst there for later in our trip. We would highly recommend.More

So relieved to have found a vegan restaurant that was good that we actually went 3 times over one week. It’s a really diverse menu and we managed to try most items but favorites were definitely the baked ‘feta’, the phyllo roll and the peach...cobbler which were all great. The sizes of the portions are massive so be careful when ordering. The salads are fantastic as well with the beetroot winning out top choice list. Service may be slow as there are only 2 servers at a time. It would be better if the waitress actually wore her face protection rather than had it up like a visor but that seems to be the general trend in Greece. Love this place and am so glad to have found it. Of course the sunset is lovely too. Best to just come by rather than book as they booked us for 930 our first time there and the place was just about empty so we could have walked in earlier. Maybe under normal high season things are different but I wouldn’t bother bookingMore

We arrived at 5:35, just before another non Greek couple who the waiter was telling that as the restaurant wasn’t open for another 25 minutes, that they (and presumably we) would have to stand in the dusty parking lot in full sun rather than sitting...unobtrusively on their shaded terrace. Eventually a Greek woman came and when she heard what was happening she said five words to the waiter and we were all allowed to sit down at 5:45. This level of disrespect for clients - when it costs them absolutely nothing to be kind - is really unforgivable. Despite being billed as mezze, the portions are huge. You can’t really order multiple dishes. The salads were outstanding, the mains were hit or miss. The “pulled pork burgers” for example were just some cabbage and mushrooms on a very dry bun, and though the filling was good, there was nothing remotely pulled pork about it - the jackfruit versions I’ve tried elsewhere with BBQ sauce are incredible. You’ll probably enjoy the filling but don’t expect pulled pork. The cauliflower steaks too were tasty but not cut into steaks, it was a pile of florets with a delicious seasoning. At 100 euros for three people, I don’t think we got anywhere close to good value. The view is fine but obstructed by power lines, and it’s located at the end of a long, dusty and desolate road. I always try to support vegan businesses, but I would never feel the need to go back here, and instead would give my business to omnivore restaurants with better and more affordable options for vegans and vegetarians, which aren’t hard to find on Santorini.More
