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

I went with my friends, there were 5 of us. The food is very good but it is a bit expensive. The place is nice and cosy.

We had a really good lunch. Ordered the bread basket which came with a very nice beetroot mousse, the favs beans with crayfish tails and the grilled smoked pork belly. All extremely delicious.

The food was tasty and we finished everything served us. The Gruyère cheese was breaded with toasted almonds and had a nice crunch. The sliced beef tagliare, done Italian style, was a bit chewy but palatable. The beetroot spread with attractively plated. The fava beans...came with tiny crayfish which really didn’t allow us to appreciate the dish fully. The minus points were the inattentive service which even caused us to get up to seek a service staff member for assistance and the charge for a tiny bottle of olive oil (we had asked for olive oil to moisten the bread) which came up to 7€. Other restaurants gave it to us gratis.More

Our favourite meal of the entire holiday and one of the highlights of our trip! They managed to squeeze us in without a reservation (very grateful). The food was absolutely incredible. The Gruyère from Naxos, Fava (best we tried in the whole of Santorini) with...Crayfish Tails, Grouper Fillet and Lamb Duo were all outstanding. The service was brilliant, our waiter gave us excellent recommendations. A visit to this Resturant is a must when in Oia.More

The staff left us completely alone for almost an hour. That was after it took forever to even place a drink order. About 10 minutes after we received our main course the waitress came over to tell us that our table was reserved by someone...else arriving soon, basically ushering us out of the restaurant as we were still trying to eat. Not great customer service to put it politely.More

This wonderful restaurant, tucked in the winding streets of Oia, had a fantastic sunset view, with beautiful, delicious dishes. We had a short stop at Santorini on a small Aegean cruise. The restaurant squeezed us in, and served us in rapid time so we could...catch our transfer back to the ship. The food was delicous, and the dessert of honey ice cream with biscotti thins and pistachio cream was wonderful.More

We booked here after seeing it was Santorini Dave’s favorite restaurant in Oia, where we were staying, and are so glad we did. When people would ask us where we were eating that night and we told them Roka, they would give us thumbs up...or tell us that’s one of their favorites - and the consensus is right! This was our third dinner in Oia - the previous two were much more expensive, and this one was much better than both of those. Off the main pedestrian path, down one alleyway, then down another small alleyway, we got a little lost at first but it’s worth the search. The Greek salad, which is just a salad, was incredible and considerably better than others we tried on our trip. The kebab appetizer with the Barbecue sauce was excellent. The Buffalo steak was delicious - on par with better steakhouses I’ve been to, and my wife’s ravioli was also excellent. Servers were very nice (although very busy, which meant things took a little while) but we had nowhere to hurry off to. Highly recommended - beautiful location, and great food! If we are back in Santorini, we will be back to Roka.More
