Since the early 1990s, we are visiting Santorini every summer from NYC. Needless to say we have a short list of our favorite hotels, restaurants and bars that we hang out every year. Skala has been on top of our list all these years, offering:

- Best view of the caldera, from all other Oia restaurants.
- Delicious, traditional, home-made cuisine.
- Reasonable prices.
- Relaxing, no-pressure environment.

Given its location Skala could have been just another one of the pricey/touristy (and pretentious...) restaurants on this beautiful island - instead, it's consistently the best value restaurant in Oia. Has a lot to do with Stavros Sigalas, Skala's owner for almost 30 years, a genuinely nice guy who enjoys what he does.

We had a lovely meal here. Very nice traditional Greek food, great views overlooking the water. It was a bit hard to get the waiters attention and quite a few things on the menu were unavailable. We went on a Wednesday and apparently they are closed on a Monday so they don't order until the next week. Didn't make sense to me because there were still 4 more trading days of the week. Another hint. Make sure you pay in cash or stay with your credit card. Mine was taken away for about 5 minutes (the only time during my trip) now I'm making no accusations but just a general reminder for travellers because a couple of weeks later my card was fraudulently used to buy online flights. It is good advice for any restaurant none the less.

This restaurant is blessed with a lovely view but the food is also very good. We ate simple dishes but all were cooked well and the staff were very attentive. Also had a bottle of Greek sparkling wine here that we couldn't find anywhere else and it was very nice.

Not much restaurants opened during late October and this was one of it. Food was nice and price was reasonable. Tasted the Santorini cod fish & bean. Fresh and tasty.
