Loved that you had to get a boat there.

My husband said it was the best calamari he'd ever had.

The fish was amazing and so fresh.

The service and view was amazing.

Everything from being picked up by Kostos to take us to the taverna, to the fresh red snapper caught that morning was fantastic. I couldn't have asked for a better place to have our lunch. The people at the restaurant were so friendly and even walked us back to the boat. It was a very relaxing place to eat.

Great experience! You arrive by boat to the cutest little restaurant. The servers are all characters as are some of the regular patrons. Being a swimsuit and jump in the water when you’re done. Great food and great atmosphere. One of the best experiences of the trip!

What a wonderful way to enjoy a final night in Santorini!
Collected by boat and whisked away to a fabulous restaurant.
The staff were excellent and met us as we arrived.
The fish was fresh and flavoursome, as was the entire meal.
Perfect.

Boat taxi pick up went well, staff very friendly , cool atmosphere , right on the beach. No sunset views , maybe better for lunch . unfortunately the quality of the food was not very good. Shrimp were mushy, over cooked and tasteless. The staff was super friendly and apologetic. They took the shrimp dish off the bill.

Very lovely restaurant. Some dishes are a bit pricy. I suggest you to order lobster and grilled fish which are best of value! The whole experience is really nice.

Awesome dinner at this small water-front restaurant. We took a small (comfortable) boat from Amoudi Bay, it took maybe 5 minutes and was beautiful. We picked out our filet from their selection and they grilled it up perfectly for us. The spicy feta was delicious as well! Overall a great experience and we wouldn't hesitate to go back.

AFT is a quant spot around the bend from Amoudi Bay. A boat from the restaurant will even pick you up free of charge. Once there the food and service are lovely and priced well. They have blankets for those cooler nights. You won't see a famous sunset from the restaurant, but the reverse sunset on the caldera is a pretty view as well.

It was a fantastic dinner at Armeni Restaurant. I had the best seafood spaghetti with tomato sauce in my life! Very friendly and funny atmosphere with the stuff. It is worthy to go downstairs. Especially at night it is adventure. You go from overcrowded Oia to this fairytale restaurant at waterfront. Different worlds.

The place is accessable mostly from the sea. The walk downstairs and upstairs from Ioa is recommended only during daylight as it is completely dark during the night. The tuna was too salty, the other fish was delicious.

What a lovely restaurant tucked away in a little cove. The food was amazing and the staff extremely friendly.( I recommend the fried mussles and the catch of the day.)Yes, the walk is steep but there is boat service to the restaurant and if you ask they will even arrange a taxi to pick you up from the boat to your hotel.

One of a kind experience. Our meal could not have been better. The owner is honest and gives you the best recommendations. We picked out our fish, they cooked then and filleted it in front of us. Delicious grilled octopus, Naxo saganaki and fig and pistachio salad. The Red Snapper was very fresh and delicious. They gave us a delicious Nutella dessert. There are two ways to get there, by boat (which will be provided if you call or email, they will pick you up at Amoudi Bay, or the long path of stairs down). We chose the path down and up. It was one of a kind all around!.

What a special place to visit! We took a private boat from Fira and stayed most of the day in Armeni Bay. The service and food were both just amazing! Sunbathe, swim, eat, repeat...... make a day of it and enjoy.

We found this hidden gem accidentally. We called to find out how to get there, and we were told we can either take a boat or a donkey! We opted for the boat ride, as it is complementary! When we arrived to the restaurant we were treated with open arms! The restaurant was quiet ( a nice change from the other restaurants on the island) it defiantly made us feel like we found a local secret. We sat right on the water and had such a great dinner. All of the fish is fresh, just caught that day. We even had a surprise birthday song and cake for my birthday! I recommend going here if you are looking for a spot off of the beaten path, away from crowds and tourists, and delicious fresh fish!

Simply AMAZING! Went there for lunch for my mamas birthday and it was a breathe of fresh air compared to the madness of the tourism in the city. We spent the whole day there relaxing, swimming in the ocean, laying out and when we were ready sat down for a nice feast! Everyone was was so sweet and helpful and really wanted us to enjoy and have a good time. This is definitely a must every time we go to Santorini. They had so many other little social additions that make them unique I don’t want to ruin so just go and be prepared to have an amazing special time.

It is worth the walk, as some might say- journey. If hiking up and down the hillside is not in your cards- they arrange a water taxi.

The food was great, Nikolas is a lot of fun and the location is superb.

This is an incredibly unique place-tucked into th rocks of santorini below the hustle and bustle of oía. Delicious food and friendly service like you are at an old friend’a house. You pick your fish and they cook it right in front of you. But be warned-unless you are extremely hardy ASK TO HAVE THE BOAT OUCK YOU UP! We made the mistake of walking the over 200 steps and it is a lot further than it looks! But it was worth the triple trouble.

Upon arriving at Amoundi Bay we were picked up by a complimentary boat to take us to Armeni port. The owner greeted us and escorted us off the boat to our seaside table. The location is small but so adorable. The staff was so incredibly pleasant and entertaining- we laughed our entire lunch.

The food is excellent & so fresh! They bring over the fresh catches of the day for you to choose from!

We shared the octopus, which was probably the best we’ve had yet, and a delicious fig, pistachio, and strawberry salad. We were able to pace ourselves and were not rushed at all. I enjoyed a seafood salad and my husband had a fresh tuna dish. We were pleasantly surprised at how big the portions were (almost couldn’t finish). We didn’t have room for dessert but the owner insisted and brought yogurt and a chocolate tart cake on the house. They were both delicious! After enjoying an espresso and the views, they arranged a car service to pick us up from the port at Amoundi Bay after we took another complimentary boat ride back.

Highly recommend! It was a perfect afternoon
