In Oia for a few days, like everybody else who is interested in local and above all, healthy food, we read a lot of online reviews. Finally we came across a very interesting blog about vegan food in santorini. Hence: Candouni restaurant. Off the main street, quiet and beautiful setting, nothing like those crowded and overrated touristy places on the... More

We were referred to Candouni by some of the locals for a classy Greek dining experience in Oia and we were not disappointed. Classy rustic interior with a quaint garden for outdoor dining. Great friendly service which instantly made us feel welcome and comfortable. The staff were very attentive to all our needs and nothing was a problem. We started... More

I was there on first time on the island, at the end of Summer 2016. I saw Candouni for the first time, and I was totally excited, the environment was really wonderful, the staff very polite, and the menu was delicious with very good quality of meat and fish. I advise any traveler in Santorini, to get there, to taste... More

I was really hangry (hungry+angry) and holding onto my last bits of patience. The restaurants that I kept searching up on my sad 30%-left battery iPhone were all closed until the evening and I was about to lose my mind. I had walked all the way from Imerovigli to Oia and was starving. All hope was lost until I came... More

Had such a wonderful evening here! I'm vegan, and all vegetarian/vegan items are clearly indicated on the menu. Additionally, the chef took the time to explain what current local veggies he was cooking with and prepared a special combo of some that are in season now. The local horta (bitter greens) with beetroot was a real treat. I also enjoyed... More
