Simply put, the most memorable meal of our three week trip to Greece. My wife and I began walking the long trail down the Amoudi around 6:30pm and enjoyed one of the most beautiful, if not the most beautiful sunset of our lives. Warning, don't do it if you have high heels or can't stand the smell of donkey poo. It was visually stunning, but the occasional stink can be a downer. Luckily, it didn't bother us too much and we even enjoyed a fun game of dodging donkey feces along the path. Anyway, we reached the bottom by the bay roughly as the sun began to disappear little before 8:00pm and grabbed a table. We heard many recommendations for seafood at Katina and they did not disappoint. We've been looking for Scorpion Fish Soup all over Greece, however it is usually prepared in the winter and we had traveled to Greece in September. Luckily, the hostess asked the chef (her mama), and she replied in Greek, "That's one of my specialties, no problem." She was right, it was my favorite dish of the entire trip and my wife's second. Her favorite (and my second) was Katina's Grilled Whole Large Calamari, which is insanely good as well. We also had some Grilled Octopus and Large Prawns, you can't go wrong here either. We stuck with an all seafood dinner, but many people seem to be enjoying their salads and meats too. My only wish was that we had ordered the Fried Tomatoes Fritters, which our waiter (who was friendly and taught us some Greek words) gave each of us a piece to try while we waited for a taxi to bring us back up the mountain. It was light and fluffy with a delicious blend of seasoning and other vegetables. It is one of our biggest regrets as no other restaurant we ordered afterward made it nearly as wonderful. Picturesque sunset, willingness to accommodate, friendly service, top notch food, and a gorgeous view of the bay ... ... an unforgettable evening all around. Please do yourself a favor and don't miss this gem of a restaurant on your trip to Santorini.
