KATOGI Tapas bar: Gem of IOS island

Katogi tapas bar Ios town

I'm deeply grateful for being able to travel all around Greece over the past few years (hopefully I'll be able to enjoy in that sweet pleasure of mine for many more years cause there's so much more I want to see in this beautiful country). I visited many places and saw a lot of things, so I formed my opinion and polished my preferences when it comes to all "travel and tourism" things.
In my humble opinion, Ios island has 3 gems: 1. beaches, 2. Liostasi Hotel & Spa (I wrote many posts about this hotel) and 3. Katogi tapas bar! I'm definitively not a specialist when it comes to food, as I love the simplest things (give me a hearty salad and I'm good to go!). But my hedonistic side awakens when I see something aesthetically beautiful. I love visually beautiful things, beautiful people, beautiful places and yes beautifully decorated: restaurants, bars, hotels and all other fancy spots! So you might understand now why I fell in love with Katogi, and you'll understand more when you see all the photos below...

Zahvalna sam sto sam bila u mogucnosti da putujem po citavoj Grckoj u proteklih nekoliko godina (nadam se da cu i dalje biti u mogucnosti da uzivam u toj svojoj slatkoj pasiji jer ima jos puno mesta koja zelim da vidim u ovoj lepoj zemlji). Posetila sam mnoga mesta i videla puno stvari, tako da sam formirala svoje misljenje i "ispolirala" svoje preferencije kada se radi o "turizmu i putovanjima"...
Po mom skromnom misljenju, Ios ostrvo ima 3 dragulja: 1. plaze, 2. Liostasi Hotel & Spa (o kojem mozete pronaci sve ovde na blogu) i 3. Katogi tapas bar! Ja definitivno nisam specijalista kada se radi o hrani, s obzirom da volim najjednostavnije stvari (dajte mi finu salatu i spremna sam za pokret!). Ali moja hedonisticka strana se budi kada vidim nesto estetski lepo. Volim vizuelno lepe stvari, lepe ljude, lepa mesta i svakako da volim lepo dekorisane: restorane, barove, hotele i druge fensi objekte! Tako da sad mozete razumeti zasto sam se zaljubila u Katogi, i razumecete vise kada vidite fotografije u nastavku...

Katogi restaurant has the most original decoration ever! There's that adorable "vintage & retro vibe" in everything: tea cups and decorative plates, frames and paintings, pillows, old fridge and small tv, walls painted in warm red and grass green colors, and music that completely matches the whole story (anything from "Penny & The Swingin' Cats": listen them here)... It's such a cute place which radiates warmth, and everybody feels "at home" here!

Katogi restoran ima najoriginalniju dekoraciju ikada! Tu je taj neodoljivi "vintage & retro vibe" u apsolutno svemu: soljice za caj i dekorativni tanjiri, ramovi i slike, jastucici, stari frizider i mali tv, zidovi okreceni u toplo crvenkastu i trava zelenu, i muzika koja se savrseno slaze uz citavu pricu (bilo sta od "Penny & The Swingin' Cats": poslusajte ih ovde)... Preslatko mesto koje zraci toplinom, i gde se svako oseca "kao kod kuce"!

Another original thing about Katogi is their menu, especially their cocktail list (I bet people mostly order "Tiki")! My favorite meal here was fava (I always order that on all Greek islands, lol), and I know that my love really enjoyed the shrimps! I might not remember what was on menu, but I certainly remember Roula, she's the owner of Katogi and such a sweetheart!!<3

Jos jedan originalna stvar kod Katogi restorana je njihov menu, narocito njihova lista koktela (kladim se da vecina ljudi narucuje "Tiki")! Moje omiljeno jelo ovde je bila fava (sto uvek narucujem na svim grckim ostrvima, haha), i znam da je moj dragi uzivao u racicima (bolje reci: skampi u sosu)! Mozda se ne secam sta je tacno bilo na meniju, ali se svakako secam Rule, koja je vlasnica Katogija i neverovatno draga osoba!

Katogi is opened only in the evening hours, from 8pm till the midnight. We visited it 3 times, and actually the last time happened to be our last night on Ios island (we had a ferry-boat around 11pm, so we went straight to the port after the dinner!).

Katogi je otvoren samo u vecernjim casovima, od 20h do ponoci. Mi smo ovde bili tri puta, i zadesilo se da je poslednji put bilo i nase poslednje vece na ostrvu Ios (imali smo trajekt oko 23h tako da smo pravo s vecere otisli u luku!)...

So if you ever visit Ios island, here's my warm recommendation for you! If you're not hungry do yourself a favor and try one of their cocktails while enjoying the beautiful ambient and happy (and mostly tanned!) people around you! And one more thing: I definitely suggest booking your table!;)

Ukoliko ikada posetite ostrvo Ios, evo moje tople preporuke za vas! Ako niste gladni ucinite sebi uslugu i probajte jedan od njihovih koktela dok uzivate u predivnom ambijentu i raspolozenim (i vecinom preplanulim!) ljudima oko vas! I jos jedan savet: definitivno predlazem da rezervisete vas sto!;)
