Love this restaurant. Went several times during our trip because of how delicious it is. We found that the best food was located off the main strip. The rooftop provides beautiful scenery. The greek burgers are a must! Our second favorite were the meatballs but...so much is worth trying. The service is unbelievable and the bang is worth the buck!More

We visited here having been recommended to do so around 20:00 in the evening and luckily got a table without having to book. The staff were very friendly and the food was delicious. We shared 4 dishes between two of us, which was just right....The portion sizes are very generous, we would definitely go back here.More

Delicious greek food, cold beer and a staff that goes an extra mile to welcome the customers speaking different languages and even trying to remember the customers names when they return to the restaurant.

I always eat Greek Classic, even [especially?] as a vegetarian, but rhis was the point, day 2 of the holiday was it? when it was clear that sanrtorini would have somehtign serious to offer us in terms of food. And for such a decent price...in an expensive town. A little hard to find [look for the signs on the main drag] but so worth it.More

Beautiful restaurant, excellent service and charming staff. The menu offers what I would describe as Greek tapas giving you the opportunity to try different flavours from small plates, the first I have experienced since travelling in Greece. We tried the fava as afters all Santorini...is the home of same. We had the meatballs which were yummy and then finished off with the sausage dish from the oven. We had the local red which again was lovely, All in all a lovely evening away from the craziness that is Santorini!More

We so enjoyed our first visit to Melitini that we booked a table for the next night! The food is delicious and quite reasonably priced for Oia (where everything is very expensive). The service was excellent, the staff were friendly and attentive. It was one...of our favourite places to eat in Santorini.More

I wish I ordered these meatballs 10 more times while I was in Oia. The sauce is incredible. The meatballs are juicy. It’s a 10/10.

Melitini is a great place to try out lots of different Greek dishes in tapas form. It's really good value too. The food was excellent, the service was very friendly and it has great views of both the caldera and the Agean sea too.

For Oia and the caldera side views the Melitini is in a poor location. It is on the main road into Oia. It has tables outside and on two levels. The service is friendly and helpful in answering questions. The food is very good. There...were four in our group and all enjoyed their meals. Good quality, fresh and well presented. House wine was from large container but not so bad. The pricing was reasonable by Oia standards. Would recommend to family and friends.More

Nice restaurant, nice food. You might get a good view of the sunset from the top floor but not the caldera. The food is the most important and we liked it a lot, but we had no reservation so sat inside and downstairs. So my...recommendation is book to get a table upstairs and you’ll like this place. The prawn saganaki was delish.More

Decided to go to Melitini whilst in OIA - seen so many good reviews about this place but my expectations were not met. I was hoping to love this place but the food was okay - not something i would recommend considering that OIA is...full of restaurants.More

Apart from the cod which was very chewy and dry everything else was ok. The staff were really lovely and the food was well presented it just wasn’t anything special. It was very standard meat and standard sauces. We ordered the cod on beetroot, sausage...stew, loaded potatoes and meatballs. We also got some pitta breads.More

Delicious traditional Greek meals in portions perfect for sharing and very reasonably priced. Book ahead for a table - the rooftop is especially nice. Try the tomato fritters and the stewed beef with onions. Everything we tried was delicious!

Fabulous from start to finish. We had 5 dishes between us not including some tzatziki and pita and that was plenty. The staff are wonderful and the views are amazing. Make sure you try if you’re in Oia.

Make a reservation for the rooftop so you can enjoy the breeze and get a good sunset view (not the best we saw in Oia but good/different). Everything we had here was spectacular, with the exception of the octopus which was quite good but I...think I was just hoping for something more and it just wasn’t that. Loved the service, the ambiance, and especially the food!More
