“A lucky choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012

My wife and I were tired after a hard day's shopping and touring and wanted a break. We randomly chose this place. Our waiter was charming and very informative, The views were beautiful, the food was good, the local beer is a delightful and refreshing lager, and we had a wonderful time.

The beer was Yellow Donkey from the Santorini Brewing Company. Myhtos is the better known Greek beer, but if you can find one of the Donkey beers from this company (Yellow, Red, and Crazy) give them a try. They have a website.

“Outstanding, if a bit pricey.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2012 via mobile

We mostly wanted a place to sit in the shade with something cold to drink and a great view. Pelekanos offered excellent service, stunning views, and free Wi-Fi. We ordered cold drinks and the Tzatziki dip, which was delicious. However, if you want anything to actually dip in your dip, you have to purchase it separately. Hence the title comment about it being a tad pricey. But we also know that you're paying for the gorgeous view and convenient location, so we didn't really mind.

“Great views, service and food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2012

The staff is very friendly and all of the food that my family and I tasted was very good. We have eaten there twice this week even though there are so many other choices here in Oia.

“Good food at a reasonable price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

Ideal spot for soaking in the view, whilst listening to nice music, with anything from a drink of Sprite to a meal.

“Great Choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2012

We ate at Pelekanos for my husband's birthday and as he said it was a perfect choice. One of the best vistas for the sunset (and it was a great sunset the evening we were there). The service was really good - waitresses and waiter couldn't have been better (without being intrusive) and the food was enjoyed by all four of us. It was not full the night we were there (June 10) so the atmosphere was relaxed and the view out of this world. Our budget is usually mid range, and I thought that the prices were quite reasonable for the quality of the food and service. I highly recommend this restaurant.
