Stayed just above Armeni at the Caldera Premium Villas and watched trekkers go up and down the trail daily. Made the mistake of going to Ammoudi bay one day before I realized that the best restaurant in Oia was actually just down the trail from...my hotel. Armeni Restaurant is a quite little gem with no other restaurants on the beach and a really quiet/fun vibe. Fresh seafood, super friendly staff and a great location. I highly recommend for lunch, but get a reservation. The hike up the trail to Oia is fine and if you have a couple of beers it will be just perfect.More

We took a day trip to Oia and reviewed some restaurants on trip advisor on the way. As some reviews have already stated, the trek down to this seafood wonder is challenging - lots of steps and quite steep (about 430ft in total I think)....So, if you’re doing it in the hottest part of the day make sure you take water as you’ll make a couple of stops! When we arrived it said reservations only. However, we asked for a table and they accommodated us straight away at the rear of the restaurant. We ordered a couple of drinks and then the main waiter (could be owner) asked us for our food order. I asked about the catch of the day and there was red snapper, sea bream and sea bass (which I went for). My partner ordered the grilled prawns and we shared some grilled feta and homemade fries. Quite simply, everything was bloody delicious! Staff were great, atmosphere really good and very busy as they were turning people away. They had a cancellation so asked us if we would like to move table so we took one at the front! We didn’t order dessert, but they brought us a complimentary Nutella and biscuit to share and gave us a large chilled bottle of water for the hike back up! Would rate this as highly as the seafood cafe we ate at in Bali. Definitely worth a visit - top place.More

Great dinner with family. We arrived at 6pm and place was pretty empty but after an hour became full. We took some starters to share and have been amazed from first plate. Octopus in vinegar, shrimps in tomato dose were absolutely brilliant. Than fish fillet...Armeni style arrived to leave us speechlessness. I’m living in mainland in Poland and fish is not topical meal. I’ve got privilege to commute between few seaside Cities for business and I appreciate seafood a lot. I own one to Armeni because after visit there my 10yo daughter, who avoids fish plates, told me that she has never had something like this before. It was not only best fish in her life but also one of best things ever. Surrounding is another story. It’s amazing, raw, basic and beautiful. It’s a hideaway from Oia located above. UX I will never forget. Finally adventure- to get there you can have a long way down (and back) on stairway or take a free boat shuttle from Ammoudi bay which can be reached by car or taxi. Absolutely great adventure.More

We had the opportunity, thanks to the polite host, to get a table in the evening without having a reservation. You should always confirm your table with reservation in advance. Service here is excellent, and food is simply superb! I especially recommend the sea food...pastas. Walking down and up the stairs is totally worth the effort. Great greek tavern!More

Most amazing hidden gem in Oia! We stumbled across this fantastic restaurant when visiting Oia for a day. We walked down to Armeni Beach to get away from Oia crowds and have a dip in the sea. Right behind us there was this traditional restaurant.../ taverna so it was a no brainer to get some lunch after a swim. And OMG was this the right move! Food is exceptional, so authentic and purely delicious. All of our dishes were to die for. Poached pear salad with nuts and halloumi cheese. Graviera cheese wrapped in kantaifi pastry Santorinian Fava Shrimp’s Caesar salad….. state of the art!! The entire staff was super friendly, light hearted and welcoming. We have only been there once but going back for an evening meal in a few days time - to end our Santorini holiday on a high!! Highly recommend this place. They can also collect their guests via speed boat from Ammoudi harbour nearby. 5* experience!!More

The best restaurant in Santorini! I recommend to call before to make a reservation (the host of B&B where we stayed called for us). Armeni Restaurant offers a taxi boat from Ammoudi Bay to Armeni beach, on perfect time! Food was delicious and all staff...very kind and friendly! Amazing experience!More

My wife and I decided to book a table after reading the fantastic reviews on here. Oh how disappointing it was; maybe our expectations were too high?! Pros: fantastic table service, staff are friendly and welcoming, the menus has a great selection of seafood and...reasonably priced. Once ordered, the wait for the food wasn’t too long and it was served with a smile. Negatives: the walk to and from the restaurant was unbelievably tough and not recommended at all! The food, steamed mussels - third of the pot were unopened (dead) and could not be touched, calamari was like eating rubber and thus overcooked. The prawns (shrimps) accompanied by some sort of inedible rice was ok and the monkfish tail was ok too. Drinks - Coke Zero was in fact very cheap Greek coke cola; you know the unbranded ones you buy from a wholesaler?! Would I return or recommend this place - unfortunately NO!More
