Reviewed September 18, 2010

I walked the many stairs down to Amoudi Bay to visit this restaurant. I would do it again. The staff were wonderful. They helped us select our fresh fish from the kitchen. It was delicious. I also enjoyed the Santorini tomato balls and, of course, greek salad. The setting on the water was breathtaking, and very much welcomed after the long walk down the steps from Oia.

We went to Katina thinking that taking in the sunset from the bay beneath Oia would be a fun experience. We headed down to Amoudi and were surprised to see that there was no sunset view (at least not sunset as we expected it). Most of the tables have the sunset obscured by an outcropping of rock on the side of the bay.

That being said, the bay is cute - you see people coming in and lodging their boats for the night, you are seated right at the water's edge and are amazed at the clear waters.

The menu is great for fish lovers. I don't prefer fish - so why go to Katina you ask? Because my wife likes fish very much and I like her very much. For those of us that don't prefer fish there was a single option - pork steak, which was overcooked.

Her fish was good - and since we went for her, that was fine. I was able to get a Greek Salad and Tzatziki which were both good.

The pricing was resonable, same 'Oia Tax' as everywhere else - this is what I call the inflated prices you get for staying and eating in one of the most beautiful places on the planet!

If you want to see the sunset from Amoudi Bay, you should check out Sunset Taverna, which we didn't get to, but clearly had a view of the sunset!

This terrific taverna has been a family restaurant for over 70 years, and its longevity is understandable. The fish is simply prepared and excellent, cooked on an outdoor grill after you go look at the day's catch and select your individual fish. The service is jovial and the vibe is casual. Try to get a table at the edge of the harbor filled with local fishermens' boats.
