Candouni is a nice traditional restaurant, situated outside of the main streets of Oia, offering a quiet terrasse and very tasty greek cuisine. Portions are generous - good value for money

This was the first place we ate dinner in Santorini, after being unable to get a table nearby at Karma (higher rated in books). Candouni was better hands down and merited a second dinner 2 nights later. Family owned and great attention to detail and...More
