“mediocre food with lots of tourists”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

I had grilled shrimp and my husband stuffed squid; neither was very fresh tasting. Staff were adequate, but clearly tired of the tourist season. Packed with American tourists.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

Beautiful views, delicious Greek food, cheerful English-speaking servers, and clean bathrooms. What more could we want! You walk part way down a flight of public outdoor steps to get there. We were entertained by the donkeys being led home for the evening on those same steps, but someone follows and cleans right behind them. It was perfect in every way!

“Best food we had in Greece”
Reviewed 8 November 2013

The flavors and spices used in the dishes were exceptional. We ate here two of our four evenings in Oia. The sunset view over the beautiful white buildings was wonderful also, but the food had us coming back.

“Great Lunch with the Best View in the Greek Islands”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

Who can resist the combination of great food and a spectacular view? Skala Restaurant is perched on the cliffs of Oia on the beautiful island of Santorini overlooking the Aegean Sea. The restaurant opens for lunch and dinner. The menu was typical for the Greek Islands but all dishes well prepared and served promptly by the friendly staff. We were a group of six and everyone tried different dishes. No one was disappointed with their choices for lunch. Great value for the money with a million dollar view!

“Best meal on our trip!”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

Skala was no muss, no fuss and had fantastic food. The staff are quick and respectful, the view can't be beat, and the food was spectacular. I got the stuffed vegetables and are still thinking about them (and the Baklava) a month after our trip. Even better--it was a fantastic value (we got an appetizer, 2 entrees, some wine, and dessert for under 60 euro)
