We have visited the Avra over the last 12 years and have never been disappointed. The food is delicious, well priced and nothing is too much trouble for the two Kosta's. The menu is very traditional with a huge choice of dishes. Some personal favourites are the Pastitsio, Moussaka, kleftiko, Spetzofai, however the list is endless! The food and service... More

We visited on the 7th September for dinner as a family of 4. This is a must visit. The waiters are excellent: a lovely dry sense of humour, prompt and courteous service and so helpful when we asked our list of questions! The beer is served in frosted glass, which just makes it taste that bit better, and a fresh... More

Food is excellent and service also. Very friendly family run tavern with low prices. Menu is large, local specials are best choises to eat. Home made Mousaka, meatballs and stifado are excellent. This tavern I can recommend to everyone!

Very friendly, family run taverna. Home made Mousaka to die for, it even tempted my veggie wife to try it! returned here several times during our stay. All food, including the set meals are excellent value and pricing is competitive.

Two years on the restaurant has been modernised, but the food is still just brilliant and the two Costas were as hard-working as ever. We were very pleasantly surprised to find we could order three course meals for less than 10 Euros. Everything was delicious and we never wasted any food or left hungry. There was never any pressure to... More

Well, my favourite taverna has had a facelift and doesn't it look posh? Didn't change the quality of the food and service tho' which was as always EXCELLENT! Some new additions to menu this year which made choices even harder - not enough days in the holiday (or spare body weight!) to appreciate all the great meals Litza continues to... More

We chanced across Avra on our first (late arrival) night in Aghios Nikolaos and pretty much went back for a last drink every night. The two Costas are just really friendly and honest people, always ready to let us try drinks and taste food. We had dinner there twice. Husband loved the moussaka and I just had to have the... More
