In Santorini you' ve got to be careful; there are many overrated restaurants, just because they have a great view.
Skala is not one of those. Sure, they provide a stunning view to the caldera, all the while serving good food.
We ate there twice during our stay and the only plate I would not try again is the tagliatelle al pesto, which is really unimpressive - pasta was over-boiled and pesto sauce almost tasteless.
Good and friendly service helps the experience.

The cuisine and view from this film setting location will thrill the senses. One of my most favourite places on the planet. Kind staff, and excellent all around!

We tried Skala one night and the best time to go is right before the sun sets so that you can see the sunset. Really nice!

We enjoyed traditional mousaka, which was to die for! It was a bit different than the normal mousaka one gets, but simply amazing! Grilled fish, pretty much anything you like and very good!

Finally, we found a great bottle of wine (greek wine is good but not spectacular) as per the owner's recommendation, and loved it! It cost about 50 euro, which is pricey for a Greek wine, but completely worth it!

One of the better places, worth a visit!

Lovely view and nice atmosphere. We had delicious stuffed calamari, grilled octopus and moussaka for a great price (11-15 euros each). Very busy in the evening though so you'll have to work to get a menu :)

Visited Santorini with another couple in July 2012. Of course in our plans was to experience the unforgettable sunset in Oia! We were a bit uncertain were to eat. We walked passed Skala restaurant and were taken by the amazing view so we deciced to have dinner there. Absolutely amazing! the food was delicious, the service was excellent and the view was out of this world. Fully recommend the place for the food, its location and value for money!
