The next day, Dave and I had lunch down in Amoudi Bay, which is popular for it's fish taverns and for catching some sun or the famous Oia sunsets. We went to Dimitris, recommended by our hotel. You could pick your seafood by going inside to the kitchen which looked more like a fish shop with lots of fresh fish on ice. They also served some frozen seafood but will inform you if it is not fresh. We had a couple of red mullet which was lightly fried - the flesh was so soft and juicy and you could really tell it was fresh. We also had a black bream which was grilled on the coals outside, along with some fresh eggplant and of course, some Greek salad. It was very tasty although it is not a cheap meal as the seafood is fresh but a lovely lunch option.

That evening we went to Kyprida which was recommended to me by Tess (who comes up with the goods time and time again). Kyprida is a lovely terrace restaurant which is great for enjoying a glass of wine. This was also the place where we had out first bottle of Katogi, probably one of the best Greek red wines at €20. I had some haloumi to start which always satisfies, then moussaka which was delicious. Dave had kebap which was simple but nice. The best part of our meal was the fabulous service from Panos, a lovely waiter from Athens who had also become friends with Tess and her travel party. Kyprida is a great spot for enjoying the lovely evenings.
