Three words: try the octopus!!! It simply doesn't get better or fresher! Walk to either hillside for a great sunset view!

Nice place for a casual dining, located directly at the sea-side with good service and friendly staff, good fresh fish, well prepared at correct prices.

Had a lovely lunch here with my partner with grilled octopus to start and then Sea Bass with a Greek salad. Wonderful fish and the table is literally feet away from the harbour wall. Prices were reasonable for Oia and you have a wonderful view.

My wife and I walked the 300 plus steps down to the old port at Oia for dinner, well worth the hike ! The waiters were a really nice family of brothers and cousins. We got to know a lot about their family and a great deal about Fish ! This is a fish restaurant with only a token meat... More

Relaxing view of fisherman biats, oia's sunset just around the corner; you get to choose the fresh fish yourself; and it ends up tasting very nice!

Had the grilled calamari and a whole sea bass, both were very delicious, you could really taste the freshness. This restaurant is perfectly situated on the bay with great views for the sunset. There was also a very cute kitty hanging around :)

We came here on the recommendation from a shop owner we met in Fira. "Everything is fresh," he said. "They will have caught the fish or octopus mere hours before and then they put it on charcoal and that's all that has to be done." We ordered squid, octopus, tomato balls and bread. The octopus and squid were terribly overcooked... More

As one of the restaurants in Amoudi Bay, Katina sits right next to the water, which means you'll be getting one of the best views of the sunset. But the octopus, shrimp, and mussels were all a tad too overcooked and wound up being more rubbery than anything else. Nonetheless it's a charming place to dine by the water.

Katina and the other restuarants are located next to the sea and surrounded by the high rocks. Had some complimentary bread with olive oil which was average. The Grilled squid was delicous n fresh. 11europe for a whole squid and had fried eggplant which had a tad too much onions. Tried Greek beer too. Nice sea view and undoubtedly fresh... More
