Candouni was our best food experience in Santorini, and perhaps throughout our entire trip to Greece. The restaurant itself is filled with old-world ambiance, and had live traditional Greek music the night we dined. We sat on the patio and were awash in twinkling candlelight....More

We have been here 3 times now during our 6 day stay. The service is outstanding and atmosphere is great. The food is the best we've had in Greece and would recommend people to give this a try over the sunset views.
