“Fantastic Pelikanos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

This is one of the best restaurants on Santorini and the most amazing views from the terrace on the top floor. Excellent food wine and service. Lovely informative waitress and a wonderful lunch.

“Pelekanos: Sunset over Santorini”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

The donkey ride to the top of the island makes visiting Oia special but nothing compared to sunset dining overlooking the city & island at the Pelekanos restaurant. It's small, steep, blue painted staircase is a deceptive tease leading to an amazing rooftop experience: Andre Bocelli & soft music play in the background; Yellow Donkey Beer (local brewery) & a marvelous wine list to choose from; fresh bread & Tzatziki to start; so many Greek Salads to choose from; consider rich, colorful Spanikopita; crispy, roasted Potatoes and succulent Lamb dish. House Donuts Dessert is a MUST! Staff is knowledgeable, encouraging and attentive. Enjoy!

“The Rosemary Honey Donuts!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

We went to this restaurant on recommendation from the owner of the house we were staying in. We were hesitant when we first approached because it kept advertising the view and it seemed like a tourist trap....don't be fooled! The view IS spectacular! the food is amazing and the service was fantastic. The waiter we had anticipated everything we could have wanted, we were never left looking for her. She even brought us donuts at the end, she said it was their specialty. we thought we were too stuffed and started to say no, but next thing we knew we finished them all and were trying to lick the bowl because the honey was so amazing. we never saw it sold anywhere, we should have tried to buy some from there!

“Excellent view and food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

Must try the roast lamb, marinated octopus and banoffee (a kind of dessert with a cheesecake crust layered with caramel and fresh banana, topped with whipped cream)! The food was heavenly, not to mention the breath-taking view of the sunset. It is a pretty quite spot too, since it is higher (2nd level) above the sunset watching crowd. The service was excellent too! Our waitress served us with a smile and recommended the delicious banoffee. She was also very friendly, took photos for us and the couple on the table next to our. Highly recommended!

“Perfect setting for the sunset”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

We visited the Pelikanos Cafe in September. The food was very good. Polite attentive waiters, and the bill surpisingly moderate given the location. I've been struck dumb by some of the prices here in Santorini.
