#TBT – Our Meal at Avocado Restaurant in Santorini, Greece

Last summer, I was lucky enough to visit Greece with my family. It was the most amazing trip and my personal favorite stop along the journey was Santorini, with Mykonos as a close second! The island was right out of a movie with everything in the classic blue and white color scheme.

We went wine tasting, hung out at the pool with its dramatic views, went shopping, and ate AMAZING food. There was endless fresh seafood and the classic Greek preparations were delicious.

Avocado Restaurant in particular was one of the best meals we had on the trip. We ended up there one night on a whim as it was right down the street from our hotel. That particular night the wind was unreal and made us unwilling to travel very far for food. Luckily this place was nearby! The food was amazing, as you can see from the picture below and the people there were so incredibly nice and accomodating. They even seated us at a table in the back in order to shade us more from the crazy wind outside.

Our incredible food. Grilled Octopus, Stuffed Calamari, and fresh Catch of the Day!

This was the best octopus I had on the trip – and we ate it almost at every meal! It was extremely fresh and tender delicately prepared with lemon and olive oil – my mouth is watering just thinking about it. Another one of my favorites was the stuffed calamari. It had a delish cheese mixture inside that paired perfectly with the fresh calamari and lemon. Lastly, my dad ordered the catch of the day, an extremely fresh fish cooked with olive oil and lemon. As you can imagine the olive oil in Greece is top notch, and the simplicity and freshness of the seasonings really allowed the seafood to shine.

I can’t wait to go back to Greece, especially Santorini and eat here again!
