We booked a table in Melitini after having reads lots of review and we can say it was just amazing.

It is a tapas bar style with small plates to share and all our choices were very good - traditional greek cuisine with something more.

we tried the greek salad, the beef stew, favas and potatoes homelette.

The bill was very low and it was one of the best value for money in Greece!

Highly recommended

Before our family of four left the USA for our first trip to Europe, I did a lot of research on Trip Advisor. One of the finds I made was for this little restaurant called Melitini. When we got to Oia, on July 3rd, we had a little trouble finding it, but certainly were glad we kept asking and looking for it! So the first thing I am going to do is give you directions. Take the main marble pathway in Oia past the children's playground and keep walking until you see a sign for the Filotera Villas. Take a left down the side street and keep walking until you meet the main road that cars and buses drive on and the restaurant will be on your right. We enjoyed the food here so much that we ate here 3 of the 4 nights we stayed in Oia. We have two teenage daughters who are pretty picky eaters and they loved it as much as we did. If you have picky eaters, get the fried potatoes, meatballs, and smoked chicken. Excellent!! The potatoes are so good, we ordered them all three nights. The sausage in the spicy red sauce is delicious, the feta saganaki was great, and my husband, who likes to be adventuresome when on vacation, had smoked sheep, sardines, fried chickpea balls etc. All was wonderful! We enjoyed the small plates and all tried each others food or shared. We ordered two of some of our favorites and that was great plenty for all four of us. The waitress there is a real gem - very friendly and we enjoyed seeing her each night. We met several other people while eating and enjoyed the conversation with them also. My only regret is that we did not get up to the rooftop as it was extremely windy when we were there. Oia is a beautiful, beautiful place and Melitini is definately the place to eat when you are there. Please go, you will not be disappointed!!

During our six day stay on Santorini we dined at this lovely, small taverna two times. The food was simple but authentic, the prices we very reasonable for Santorini and the waitress worked very hard to please us.
