“Best meal in Oia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

My friends and I had an incredible dinner at Melitini. The small plates were plenty to satisfy us. The view was incredible. The prices were very affordable and the service was great. We all agreed that Melitini served the best meal that we had in our 5 days on the island of Santorini.

“Authentic Greek mezes in Santorini”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

What a lovely dinner we had at Melitini. They serve traditional Greek mezes (small plates). We shared about six for our family of four (including two teens). It was fun trying so many different dishes. We got two sausages, a traditional omelet, fried tomatoes (a Santorini specialty), and fried zucchini. The fried tomatoes were the best we tried on the island, light and perfectly crisp. The fried zucchini were delicious. The two sausages were both great. Our baklavah was the best of our trip. Our waitress was really fun and a big help picking dishes. She suggested several, including the best sausage dish with a delightful sauce. Small tables, not much seating, we had a wait a little to get two side-by-side tables to push together. A little off the main path, ask when you get close and you will get directed to it. Afterwards our Greek host told us it was his favorite restaurant in Santorini (and he lives there!), with authentic Greek food at reasonable prices. Not much of a view. But a superb dining experience.

“Best new restaurant in Oia!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

It is located on the main road heading out of town, about a 3 minute walk from the bus stop (but just at the end of the last church square, so not really far from the Oia hustle and bustle). We were lured in by the case of fresh sausages and cured meat! It serves traditional Greek favorites, but does it better than the rest. They also have their unique sausages and cured meat dishes that literally had four of us moaning and commenting lovingly with each bite. Plus, the prices are good! Dishes are served Mezze (tapas, small plate) style, so it is perfect to share with two-four (with four we were able to try more). The carafe of wine was ample!

Would I go back? Yes! I was sad I had discovered it on our last day.

For meat lovers...this place is a must!
