This Taverna is on Ammoudi Bay which is far below Oia. You can walk down over 200 rugged stone steps to get there, take a boat in, or drive down the steep, congested road to the water. However you get there, you'll be happy you made the effort. When you come into the Bay, it looks like a movie set. Fresh fish and octopus are abundant and Dimitris grills them outside after you are invited to the kitchen to make your seafood selection. We had calamari and Greek salad for lunch but the stand out was the tomato balls. This is a traditional Santorini dish made with tomatoes, vegetables, onion, mint and flour and fried so it it like a vegetable fritter or pancake. The portions were generous and we sat at a table at the edge of the sea, so close to the water it would have been feasible for something on our table to fall in. This is a casual spot for lunch or dinner with people passing through from the other tavernas to head over to a swimming spot. If you come on boat, you will need to pass through, literally through the other tavernas to get to this one. Lunch here was a most memorable experience!

We have been on the Island so many times and we always spend a lunch or dinner at Dimitris in the beautiful Ammoudi Harbour. We love the place, the surroundings and of course the food. Try the Saganaki for starter and then the grilled Lobster. This time We came back with all family and friends , 50 people, for an unforgetable evening together. Thank you so so much Joy for having us , it was truly one of our best memories ever. Lots of Love from the Lack family. See you next time, hopefully this year.

The view was beautiful. Even on a very hot day breeze felt nice and cool. Wine was good, house wine started at 15€ and other bottles at 30€. We picked a local bottle of wine and really enjoyed it. I had a grilled octopus, portion was good and it was ok, I've had better and I've had worse. My husband had a red snapper, which was supposedly cost 30€ per kilo. Fish was small and not really seasoned, but they gave a sauce which added flavor. The meal itself was 3 out of 5 + 1 star for the view. I rated it 2 stars because the restaurant charged us 30€ for the fish, fish that was definitely less than 500 gramms. It was really disappointing. My husband didn't want to make a scene, so we just paid our bill. However, we will not be going back there and I feel as we have to advise other travelers to weight their fish before ordering, so that they are charged exactly what they ordered.

Dear Jana,
Thank you for your good words about our Taverna, and as for the misunderstanding about your bill we would like to inform that our red snapper price is 67 euros and not 30 euros as you wrote in your review. So your fish was .450 grams which is 30 euros as it was on your bill. It is a shame that you didn't ask us to clarify the bill with you in person . We would love to see you again and try to rectify this misunderstanding that spoiled your evening.
Kind Regards

Fast service, even if crowded. Great view and location. The seafood was fresh and tasty. Prices are above average, but that's normal, it's Santorini.
Highly recommended for romantic sunset dinners.

Had a wonderful evening for dinner and sunset. Despite the 275 steps down this place is a gem. Had sea bass and it was divine. Super service and prime sunset views. Would recommend.
