One of my favorite meals in Oia. No frills. Not too fancy and prices were great. Food was delicious and fast.

our hostess suggested we try Skala. we were hooked and in our 7 days in Oia, we went 4 times! the food, the view, the friendliness of the waiters all contributed to it. Try their grilled squid!

I have spent 10 amazing days across Greek islands with my boyfriend. Food has been pretty amazing everywhere but today we finally found a place we don't want to be back.
A simple Greek salad was tasting as much as water, we found a hair on our main and once notified to the staff, the hair was simply removed from the plate. Plate not changed.
I would not recommend it.

Scala moved a short distance west on the other side of the walking street now providing great views in two directions. Great traditional Greek food in a wonderful new, beautifully designed restaurant. We were on the upper deck and had a wonderful waiter and a great dinner.

Since this restaurant is on the no-view side of the main thoroughfare through Oia, my wife and I hoped that we’d get a little break on price and perhaps a place that focuses more on the food and service to compensate for less than prime location. What we got (despite a reservation) was unsmiling greeter who led us to a lousy table on a wall sandwiched between a family with small children and a chain smoking couple. Should have left then and there, but our US midwestern “don’t complain” personality disorder kept us planted. We ordered appetizers and main dishes immediately. The house white wine (meh) and fava bean appetizer (double meh) arrived promptly. Then the siege of Oia set in. Ten-20-(how many cigarettes can that couple smoke?)-30-(did our waiter die?)-40-(flag down random waiter for glass of red wine)-45(!) minutes in, the mains arrived. In fairness, the moussaka wasn’t bad, but the lamb meatballs were possibly flown in from Costco (they had time). Our original server remained AWOL. The wine never came. I grabbed a third waiter for the check. “Would you like to include a tip?” Um...no, but you can keep the cigarette butts one table over.
