“Yum. And the view was better!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014 via mobile

The food was great (aglio e olio / carbonara / corn bread / milk chocolate crepes) and the view was to die for (both caldera and Mediterranean view from the rooftop!) We watched the sunset with a cappuccino...

And... The price was right! The service was friendly and attentive (which is saying something).

“Great view, better food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014 via mobile

Had lunch on a windy afternoon and the view from the terrace is amazing. May be the highest spot in Oia. The staff treated us like longtime customers. The prices were very reasonable and the food was wonderful. We shared the second and third main courses, can't remember the names, but one was a delicious vegetarian dish and the other was some Santorini burgers, but really seemed more like fabulous pickle shaped meatballs! The waitress suggested we try a Greek Frappe, which was great after the meal. Highly recommended.

“Great Rooftop Cafe, Great Views, Great Moussaka, Great Date!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

This was our second trip to Santorini. On our first visit we had an overview of the Island with a tour group, so we knew exactly where we wanted to return this time. Oia was our favorite spot and we wanted to explore on our own without being rushed. As I planned for our day, I searched Trip Advisor for a great restaurant where we could enjoy lunch. Pelikanos stood out in the reviews, so we decided to try them. We were in search of the Best Moussaka in Oia. We took the boat transfer from the port to Amoudi Bay with Santorini Planet (definitely the fastest way to get there- 20 Euros including a bus back to Santorini) and then made our way up to the top of the cliff to Oia. Pelikanos was easy to find and looked very inviting. The restaurant has a couple different levels, so we walked up a few flights of stairs and headed toward the rooftop to sit outside. Even though it was November 8th, the day was gorgeous the sun was shining, the breeze was refreshing, and the 360* views from the top were amazing.
We ordered the Moussaka and a Greek Salad to share, and while we waited for our food to arrive, I couldn't stop taking pictures. When we first sat down, the patio was fairly empty. By the time we finished our meal, most of the tables were full. I thought the service was very good. However, as it got more crowded, the staff had a lot to do and were busy! I can see where people waited a little longer for their food than we did. We ended our leisurely meal with a cappuccino...delicious.

“Beautiful, Romantic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

We dined here one evening while staying in Oia.
With the candlelit tables, beautiful piano music playing with spectacular views; this made pelekanos a real romantic gem.

The food was delightful and service was very good.

It is a little more pricy, but what isn't in Santorini, Oia? Really - This place is well worth it!
