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!
