Reviewed March 31, 2013

Wonderful family-run garden restaurant serving excellent and original home-cooked Greek dishes. A memorable meal and a warm atmosphere; one is immediately made welcome. The owners speak excellent English, having lived in Canada, and go out of their way to explain every detail of the marvellous dishes prepared by the father. Beautiful place -- don't miss the most charmingly decorated restroom in a restaurant anywhere. An absolute must when visiting Oia. Thanks to Craig at Atlantis Books for sending us there!

“Amazing”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

Went with a couple of friends during the off season. Kandouni was one of a couple restaurants open. We were greeted by one of the owners, two brothers half Canadian and half Greek. Had unbelievable lamb and local wine. After our meal we were treated with a couple shots of Raki, a really good Greek hard alcohol. Overall amazing food and good times.

“Nice yard ... food not so good”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Nice place with a lovely yard and a romantic atmosphere but unfortunately that's all... It doesn't really succeeds in making you feel that it deserves the money that you pay...

“Went back the next night too”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

Our first evening in the courtyard of this lovely taverna on the quieter back streets of Oia was simply wonderful. Our waiter was enthusiastic, fluent in many languages, knowledgeable and gave excellent service. We were so impressed that we returned the next evening. This time for some reason the waitress serving that evening would not allow us to choose our table, and did the same with the next guests who arrived, yet the other half of the coutyard remianed empty throughout the evening. This did rather take the edge off the evening, plus the waitress was more inclined to engage in convesation with a Greek couple at another table rather than with the other three tables, including ourselves. The food was good that evening, but we preferred our first evening here.

“Delicious but make sure your table is outside!”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Lovely meal and atmosphere. The 2 wait staff who are lovely are hectic though, racing around trying to keep up. The live entertainment on the Saturday was traditional and created a great atmosphere. The fish and seafood is highly recommended!
