Since our original restaurant was not open, we walked by Candouni and luckily decided to stay. The ambiance, staff and food made this an excellent choice.

On our honeymoon in Oia, we can to this restaurant one evening and really enjoyed the romantic atmosphere. The staff was extremely friendly, there were candles on every table, the outside patio area was charming and the food was good. We had their Mousakka, which was good but needed more seasoning. We enjoyed the experience however and would recommend this... More

We ate at this restaurant twice during our stay. We ate outside the first time and inside the second time as it was a bit windy. The service was efficient and friendly. We enjoyed a variety of dishes which were all very good: the eggplant puree, the beetroot salad, the rucola and prosciutto entrée, the tuna as a main and... More

Eight of us had a politely raucous and totally delicious dinner at Candouni. We started with multiple small plates of appetizers, every one of which was enjoyed by everyone. These were followed by a variety of seafood, meat, rooster, and pasta mains, also well prepared and uniformly appreciated. Service was more than welcoming, including Raki and Vin Santo on the...

Last night on Santorini and had a fantastic dinner. Dakos, Greek salad and lamb were amazing. Extremely friendly and fast staff and chef came out at the end to treat us with dessert wine and chocolate mousse. In the back alleys of Oia and is definitely worth it. Guy next to us had some fish that looked great too.

Glowing candle light. Caring service. Nuanced dishes. Bouganvillia covered terraces. All of that, and more. A charming little spot, just a stone's throw from the beaten path. Come here after sunset and enjoy one of the best spots in Oia.

As you walk in you feel like you will dine in a family member's home. The terrace is really cozy. The decor is detailed to the T. I must say that my husband and I enjoyed our food. We both had the chicken. It was really tender and juicy. We cleared our plates! The house wine was delicious. The entrees... More

My husband and I shared a meal with 6 friends at Candouni last night following a recommendation from one of the other couples hotel reception. It is hidden away in the back alleyways of Oia so you probably won't find it unless you go looking for it! We were warmly greeted (to an empty restaurant) by the chef and owner... More
