With a complimentary selection of breads and dips served on arrival, sirloin steak with two sides for under 10€, Avra is fantastic value compared to other seafront eateries in Agios Nikolaos. The menu is varied and the food is of excellent quality with many dishes flambéed at your table.

Staying at the Lato with friends who've been to Ag Nik many times before, singing the praises of Avra for good reason! Visited for dinner several times, and squeezed in lunch and breakfast a couple of times too. Each visit the food was fantastic, we never had the same food twice and everything was delicious! Both Costas are so warm... More

My wife and I were introduced to this restaurant on our first recent visit to Crete and we found it exquisite. The food was amazing, wine superb and inexpensive and the friendliness of both Costas was genuinely warm. We had the most wonderful dining experience and would highly recommend this restaurant.

For the second consecutive year, we visited the Avra restaurant. Comfortable tables Good variety of excellent food. Charming and very efficient service by the two Costas. Try the flambé prawns or the Kleftiko... Follow the advice of Costa about the wine : tell him what kind of wine you appreciate and he will provide it. Highly recommended restaurant

Stayed with relations in June 2015 who are regular customers of the restaurant. We ate at the restaurant on several occasions during our stay (lunch and evening meal) and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience - the food and hospitality provided by the two Costas. We would highly recommend a visit to the Avra - you won't be disappointed. Cath and... More
