“Awesome family operated-traditional Greek cuisine at very reasonable prices! One of the best meals I've had in Greece!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2014 via mobile

This place is great from the decor to the service and especially the food. After a nice day in Amooudybay we ventured to Oia with friends& tried to navigate around to find this place. Ended up passing it as the main entrance is not on the Main Street but the street ahead of it-easy to find if you know where you're going.

Was slightly disappointed to find no main courses on the menu but so happy there was not as tasting many different traditional Greek foods was a fabulous way to enjoy our dinner. The salad was probably the best Greek salad I've ever had, the potatoes, sausage, grilled feta, tomato balls, zucchini balls etc etc etc were fantastic! The only thing I wasn't raving over were the lava beans which my husband loved. We had wine & 4 people in our group that ordered many many items & the price was only 40 ea couple! They have a rooftop terrace in which we all gathered to watch the stunning sunset. Fantastic family operated restaurant! Loved it! Don't miss out!

“You can do better in Oia...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2014

First of all, it is good to know that this a pretty nice place, but in the wrong side of Oia -meaning that the view is not what you expect when you are in Santorini, since you cannot see the caldera even when on the terrace- and it is a not a restaurant. It is "mezedopoleio - kafeneio" meaning that the place offers limited tastes and it is more like a tapas place. The service is a bit slow (very slow when all tables are full) and the music (rebetika) quite loud and pretty "heavy" in the ears, even for Greeks... So, if you don't mind all these, you can certainly go there. The food is very good and the prices within acceptable limits. I would recommend it only for a quick bite at noon...

Another fake review, in order to dispute us our competitors. Melitini changed the ethics and the quality standards in Oia.....
We know all the persons that visited Melitini during August, especially when they sit on the terrace. Nobody with that name visited Melitini.
It is funny somebody to critice us that we are not restaurant (we already know that) and to invent "wrong" places in Oia that Nature made....

On behalf of all Melitini team, thanks a lot to our customers for their kind words, for their positive reviews, for their respect to our effort and on top of everything for ignoring all the fake reviews and warning us about them.

“Best Restaurant in Greece Bar None”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014

YOU HAVE TO GO HERE! If you are in Santorini this is theeee place to go. This was one of my favourite places to eat in all of Europe and we ate in some pretty over the top ritzy places. The portions were perfect and it was awesome to be able to share and try a bit of everything. I didn't feel overly full to the point of discomfort but I got to try everything and was completely satisfied. You will not be left feeling hungry. The salad was awesome but my favourite things were the grilled tomato balls we had and the baklava (sp?) I don't like pastry in general but this was unreal. I wish there was a place like this in my home town. There should be more restaurants like this. The whole concept of tapas and sharing a meal is something that should happen more often. It created such a lovely atmosphere and the view on the rooftop terrace is amazing. I would recommend this to anyone traveling alone, with a significant other, or a family. It is the perfect location and the staff make you feel so comfortable. The food was delicious!

“Spectacular views, delicious food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014

Melitini is a place in Oia where you can eat greek traditional food. Bekri Meze and feta saganaki are delicious!! The prices are very low concerning these of the other restaurants in Oia. The view of the terrace is wonderful but is better to make a reservation for a table there. For desert try the melitini , a mastic tart which is so tasty !!
