We wanted to visit Kaprides on a local recommendation, but when we got there they were having their end of season private meal. So we asked where they would themselves recommend, and they all said Roka straight away. That was good enough for us, so we sought out this place in the back alleys of Oia. What it lacks in views it makes up for in a very cozy outside space. The staff are attentive, and the food is fantastic. We ended up going three times so tried a variety of things, and they were all great. The calamari are great, the pork main was sublime, the mushrooms in wine wonderful, and the Mediterranean lentil salad excellent. Easily the best restaurant in Oia for our money, until that is we can one day visit Kaprides to compare the two.

Out of the way little restaurant - great service and the best food.
Can be a bit hard to find, but worth the search.

My husband and I were in Santorini for our honeymoon this past September, and while we were thrilled with the views and our hotel (Canaves), we found that the food was not that great. Until we spoke to locals, we didn't realize that most in Santorini are not from Santorini and only work there for the season. Therefore, it's hard to find authentic, good food. Our hotel manager suggested Roka and it was the best meal we had during our five days in Santorini. Authentic, delicious, friendly people. A must-go!

Based on the reviews here, we searched around to find this charming taverna located on one of the back paths of Oia. It wasn't crowded and we had a nice table in the simple courtyard. The food was fine but nothing special - simple taverna menu with good portions. I wouldn't say it was cheap but it was reasonably priced considering it doesn't have the famous caldera viewpoint. Give it a try but don't rush to it if your stay in Oia is limited.
