LOVE me some octopus!

Let me recommend instead of garlic in your marinade, add chopped onion and parsley. Along with EVOO and lemon juice it is the "chimichurri" sauce of Greece (and Cyprus my homeland).

You can also use this awesome marinade to stuff a big fish (we usually use Dorade/Bream and cook it on charcoal while periodically brushing the marinade. Serve with french fries and a simple village salad: Culinary heaven!!!

The best full-proof way to cook Octopus, which is quite tricky, is sous vide. Package it with some EVOO and a bit of salt and cook at 180F/85C for 4 hours.
After that, you can grill it while marinating on REALLY hot fire/charcoal for just a couple of minutes to get some nice caramelization (from the lemon juice) and char. If you have garlic in the marinade (instead of chopped onions) it will burn and taste pretty gnarly.

Oh man, now i'm drooling...

Cooking octopus is tricky, you have to cook it very fast or very slow. I think the easiest to cook is calamari. All you have to do is rip the face off, take the piece of plastic out, then peal the skin off and slice it into rounds. You can cook it by grilling or frying. The OP is cooking a larger octo which takes more skill.

Yep, hard to find up here. Can find it occasionally at the asian markets though.
Anyone here try takoyaki before?

I think scooling just meant "amongst tentacled seafoods, calamari is the easiest to cook."

calamari is a squid, I did not know that. Learn something new every day. And when you are eating you octo think of this clip:
