Finest Greek cuisine with the finest of service. Whereas the two Costas are mine hosts of the utmost the real star "lives" in the kitchen - the wonderful Litza, wife and sister of the Costas. Had the pleasure of being introduced to a proper Greek Sunday dinner - delicious was an understatement but then everything on the menu is just... More

( We were staying B and B at the Minos Beach Art Hotel ) Service from the two " Costas " was excellent and the food is absolutely delicious, can't wait to... More

we first went to the Avra seven years ago and have went everytime we go to agios nikolaos the food is still excellent and reasonably priced the service is first class from two very busy waiters who always have time for a friendly chat to you I would have no hesitation in recommending the Avra to anyone.

First night we walked past this restaurant and it was full therefore decided to go there on our 2nd night and went every other night for the next 14 days. Food was always excellent, service excellent from the 2 Waiters, the owner and his brother in law. A good value for money Restaurant which I have no hestitation in recommending.

We had several good meals here over the course of our 2 week holiday. We found the welcoming hospitality of all the staff great. It is very close to the Lato Hotel, where we stayed so only a small walk away. The meze was fantastic and we got to try some new Greek dishes. Well worth a visit.

Still overall best restaurant in Agios Nikolaos. Fantastic service, food and value. Went several times, ordering off main and meze menu, did not find a single dish I did not like.

After dismissing this place on walking by we decided to give it a go as it was quite busy which we thought was a good sign. Clientele were an older group in general and seemed to be mainly Brits who had been coming for a number of years. Service was by 2 older chaps who were both very polite and... More
