Oia restuarant recommendation

Hello all!
We will be traveling to Greece this June for my sister's wedding, staying in Finikia on Santorini and then Athens.

My sister is getting married at the Canaves Hotel in Oia and I am looking for a recommendation for our "rehearsal dinner" the night before the wedding. We are staying in Finikia, so would like something in Oia as that is the closest and we will not have a car. We are a group of 13 (12 adults + 1 18 month-old). We are well-rounded, adventurous eaters that like good food, wine and a great atmosphere. We are looking for something nicer and less touristy, great views will be wonderful, but not requried. I know y'all like an idea for a budget...maybe 50 euro per person (excluding alcohol)?

I posted on trip advisor too, but wanted to check here too.
Thank you in advance!

The Finikia Place Restaurant is actually one of the best I've enjoyed in Oia or Finikia. If you want something a little more spontaneous and casual, nearby is Santorini Mou, where the owner loves to serenade his guests and sometimes other musicians and dancers join in the fun.

My sister and I had the best night at "Santorini Mou" Finika Oia. It was in 2011, but we still talk about it. Beautiful food, especially the lamb , and great atmosphere. Loved the live music!
Another nice place was "Petros Taverna" - fresh grilled fish, taromasolata, cheese croquettes.

Check out Floga in Oia, my husband and I were there in 2013 and it was one of our favorite restaurants! It's a terrace restaurant overlooking the caldera, private and nice atmosphere with great food. It is slightly more upscale but I don't remember paying more than 50 euro each. It does get busy in the evenings so I would check ahead and get reservations if you decide to try it!
