“Great view, perfect for a beer! There is an elevator that can take you there. For the bold or the athletic ones, there is a path that goes through the Castle. Beware though, the path is mainly made out of stairs :-)”

“What do you do when your wife is contracted with a new job in a new town? You do what you do best! You open the best cocktail bar in the town. That's Kouchico. Honestly the best bar for chill and top quality drinks and cocktails in a nice corner of the streets of Ermoupolis. Hidden but creating a garden atmosphere that can offer entertainment for all interests. They mix the cocktails with some greek spirits too. ”

“Traditional Kafenes in Oia: Greek cuisine (tapas - mezedes), off the main road, cozy, friendly atmosphere. They use fresh, local products and serve up cured delicacies, Cretan dakos and tomatoe fritters among other traditional recipes accompanied by traditional alcoholic spirits such as raki and ouzo. Needs a reservation even a few days in advance during high season, we can help you with this :) ”

“Sta Vaporia is another spot I would suggest to go for a lunch or dinner. I mentioned lunch before, because the panorama that will unravel before you is magnificent. Their menu is interesting and the guys managing are very serious about what they serve. But in the end, anything with a view tastes great.”
