The family that owns this restaurant were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The atmosphere inside was so lovely and the food itself was amazing. Definitely worth a visit after the sunset, since there is no caldera view.

My wife and I dined recently at Candouni for one of our evening meals while visiting Oia and we had a wonderful meal and experience at this establishment. The staff was wonderful in recommending their most popular dishes and we felt like we had the place to ourselves. We dined in a very romantic courtyard that the restaurant offers which... More

I went there without a reservation and they were busy but still got me in so that might be the reason why the service was kind of messy. They took a long time to get our orders, then one of the dishes did not come and he said we did not order but we had ordered for sure. Took then... More

We were given a recommendation to eat here. Although it does not have an ocean view don't let that stop you from trying it. The ambiance of the restaurant is great with tables set with beautiful fresh flowers and surrounded by walls with candles. My favorite dish was the calamari appetizer made with pesto and pine nuts. Such a unique... More

Visited at night, the place is located in some very romantic little back streets. The little candles were lit in the walls and made the place low lit and so romantic. The food is pure greek but well cooked and delicious. Must visit when in santorini.

Simple meals took over half and hour to come out on a partially full night. And when they did, it was nothing worth waiting around for. Avoid the seafood pasta, leave it to the Italians. Grilled mushrooms were tasty but mean at 10 euros.

We were told this lovely,family owned and run, decidedly Greek jewel was the best food in Oia.Lunch our first day confirmed this.We ate there every night. The joyful welcoming,thoughtful suggestions,and generous time spent was actually the highlight of our 6 days in Santorini. Warm wishes to Spyros and his delightful family. Katherine Strickland

If you want to eat food of quality this is definitively the place. Great service (fast, hospitable, I felt at home) from waiters and owners, wonderful ambiance with candle lights , embroidered pillows (quite romantic actually although I went with my best friend). The chocolate mousse with orange is to DIE FOR!! The chef came to our table and when... More
