It's amazing to sit right by the crystal clear sea and eat super fresh seafood, most of it live. They like you to go inside and pick your fish or lobster yourself. The service is friendly and fast the waiters all ready with big smiles and good English. A must stop when you're in Santorini. We had the fresh grill... More

Friendly service & fresh seafood. *Fried Calamari: So fresh! Not lots of breading like most places. *Fried Melted Tomato: Must try! Not a whole tomato friend but rather tomatoes cut up and mixed with other ingredients *Shrimp: 5 giant shrimp with head and shell on

Amazing location into the small port of ammoudi-Oia. Quality of the food excellent, we had fantastic grilled octopus, fried calamari, and giant (5 kg) red snipper. The downside was the price a little bit out of the average.

We thoroughly enjoyed an early evening grilled fish dinner overseen by the family matriarch. The staff was friendly and offered perfect advice as to how to eat our huge bream, perfectly and simply grilled to enhance the taste of the freshly caught fish. Our happiness must have been evident because we were presented with both ice cream and wine "on... More

After a hike and swim at Ammoundi Bay we decided to stop here for lunch. There are several taverns along the water but we found ourselves a nice seat here. We ordered fried zucchini (really good), grilled octopus (good but not amazing), shrimps (I thought I ordered grilled but they came out looking steamed instead. It was also overlooked), and... More

My husband and I came here for the view and the lobster spaghetti. Granted we missed the view because traffic coming from Firastefani was insane...but the area where the restaurant is located, was beautiful even after the sun had set. The staff was incredibly friendly...but as we were contemplating dropping 90euro for the lobster spaghetti, the couple next to us... More

Katina's taverna used to be a very good place to eat in Ammoudi. We were disappointed this year. Average service! Quite expensive! Hors d' oeuvre and salad were good but grilled fish was too cooked and dry. Hope it improves...

Good sunset view, huge lobster, yummy shrimps and octopus! A little bit expensive though, worth the price still! Next time maybe we will try the lobster next door at the Sunset restaurant!

We were swimming in the bay and decided to grab a bite before the sunset. The service was amazing, from the waiters to the host and chef. The fish I ordered was as fresh as if I caught it while swimming. My wife isn't big on seafood and nearly fainted when she saw the head on the prawns, the waiter... More
