Breakfast, lunch, and dinner in Oia, year round, since 1982.

Lotza is a small cafe restaurant in Oia that’s been open since 1982. With beautiful caldera and sunset views, Lotza has a casual, laid back environment, but also a romantic vibe in the evening around sunset. Enjoy a meal or have coffee and dessert. They serve traditional Greek dishes, fish and seafood, meat, pasta and vegetarian options available. The Oia spaghetti is delicious and their baklava, served with ice cream, is the best in Santorini! Don’t order the souvlaki. Always get a gyro or souvlaki from a small gyro/souvlaki shop, never at a sit down restaurant. Friendly staff, great service, and reasonable prices. A great breakfast option as it’s one of the few restaurants we talk about on our site that is open early. Reservations are usually not required. They have a walk-in system and there is a person assigned to seating so it’s pretty organized and usually not a long wait if at all.
