About
Roka” Restaurant is settled in an old building of 1912 with interesting architecture –in an area where you can admire old preserved captain houses. The warm colors of the small courtyard filled with trees and flowers give you the feeling of a relaxing and pleasant welcome escaping from the crowd. Inside there are three small charming rooms to sit ideal for some colder nights near the wooden stove and enjoy delicate flavors. On the backside of the restaurant there is wonderful sea view of the northwest side of the island. Hidden and private but only a few minutes away from the main marble walk way. A new team with fresh ideas took over the restaurant on 2017 continuing the good work. Our vision

Worst experience of our entire trip to Greece. I don’t understand the great reviews. They were rude, rushed us, and were super unwelcoming!! Every other place we have gone in Santorini has been so friendly and amazing!! We have spent 5 nights here, so lots...of dining! Karma and Candouni off the charts! Roka - wow, HORRIBLE!!!!More

Went here based on a recommendation as well as great TA reviews and we were so happy we did. It’s important to note that the location does not have a sunset view or a view of the caldera. That said, the ambiance is very nice...and the food and service were excellent. We scheduled the meal for an hour after sunset and that worked out perfectly. Highly recommended.More

This is an amazing restaurant that was recommended by a friend. The restaurant made a mistake regarding the reservation but seated us in a nice location. We started with a huge salad. The waiter talked us out of ordering another salad and or appetizer. Good...thing he did because the salad was huge. The pork belly was the best I ever had at a restaurant for dinner. It was smoked pork belly with cedar and thyme with a glaze in a layer of potatoes. The mushroom risotto was fantastic. We were so full that we couldn’t squeeze in dessert. Yeah I know pork belly isn’t Greek I love pork bellies. The service was good and it was enjoyable. Note: you need to ask where you turn to get to it as it is in a hidden gem of a location.More

I guess it depends on what you mean by 'workout clothes". Clothes you wear at the gym for aerobics class or weightlifting would probably not be appropriate. Hiking shirts and shorts should be fine.
