Great location, with good food let down by chaotically poor service. Had dinner this evening, on the face of it prices seemed expensive but in reality weren't, dishes tasted nice, but despite being only half full... Everything was painfully slow... I won't be recommending this,, by contrast the place next door ( dimitris) was packed and everyone seemed much happier

We walked the 500 + steps down to Ammoudi bay just before sunset. We were just ordering as the sun settled into the spectacular bay. We share a huge squid and fresh octopus with a lovely Greek wine and of course the traditional crusty bread with dips. As night fell and the soft glow of lantern light lit our way... More

We enjoyed two lunches at the Sunset during our stay in Oia. After a lovely few hourse of swimming in Amoudi Bay , this was a logical stop for lunch. Having a table right on the water with a gorgeous view of Amoudi bay and the fishing boats was simply magical! The fresh fish grilled....is unlike any other I have... More

I should first say its not so much a long walk but a heck of a climb. There are about 225 steps leading from the main strip to the bay however you can ride the mules or if you have a car, drive around. Being right on the water you have a unique view that's beautiful. The seafood is delicious... More

Dining on fresh seafood, while sitting on the shore gazing at the magnificent water front view is a memory I will NEVER forget!

Absolutely one of the best sea food restaurants ever! Located in Amoudi port, it gives you some special feeling, as you sit directly by the sea and watch the sunset. My favorite dish - Shrimp saganaki. Mmmmm.. I can still remember the taste of it. You can find this meal in other greek restaurants, but not one is like this.... More

This was definitely our favorite meal in Oia and we regularly try to re-create this at home. It is a great spot, right by the waters edge with fantastic views and relaxing atmosphere. The first waiter wasn't overly friendly but still polite, the second waiter who cleared our plates was much more chatty and forth coming with tips on how... More

We first heard this restaurant on the Giada De Laurentis travel show. That's why, we decided to go for dinner. Oia, in general, besides having a nice sunset view, is overly priced and overrated area in Santorini. It is a long walk from the hill. The location of sunset taverna is nice, but the food is very ordinary for greek... More

Go to Ammoudi for perfect seaside lunches. Would advise to take a simple starter (greek salad or grilled octopus) and select a fresh fish from the daily catch. Have the white housewine which fits perfectly. Tables for 2 are right on the seafront.

So we asked for their menu to have a look at their prices and they weren't fussed at all which was good as we felt a bit cheap doing that lol It was an extraordinary spot for lunch and we had a table right by the water. The staff was nice but not overly inviting. You could feel it was... More
