Still the best taverna in ag nick.

Each year my wife and I stay at the Lato Hotel and although we go to most of the tavernas in the area the Avro is still the best every meal is good as is the service from the two Costos well done and keep it going.

Walked from our hotel - tired with luke wam buffet food to get fresh fish. The Red Snapper was very tasty for 15 euro. The restarnt got a bit too busy for two to handle... We skipped the desert and waited for 15 minutes for the taxi.

Although sadly on the road so a bit noisy, the food and service can not be faulted. They also do a cracking Sunday roast if you fancy one. But their Greek food is delicious, freshly cooked and nicely presented. Leave room for desert as wide choice and all made on premises. Definitely one to try.

Lovely friendly restaurant. Try the shrimp saganaki and the cheese croquettes they are to die for! The owner is very attentive and is happy for you to sit there and watch the world go by

We eat at Avra a few times in the 10 days we were in town. The service was excellent. They always greeted us with a smile & made time to chat even when busy. The food was always tasty & good quality. If you're looking for consistently good food then I'd definitely recommend Avra. It's location is particularly good for... More

Enjoyed a warm and friendly week of lunches. Good and simple home cooked food from fresh local ingredients. Served by the 2 Kostas, who make you feel so welcome.

We stayed at the Lato hotel and used this restaurant on several evenings, it became our favourite place to eat. The food is fantastic and the two Costa's are always friendly and willing to please you, even if you do give them bad tips on the football!! Great value and a wide variety of Greek and English dishes.

Love this place! Been here countless times over the last 15 years. The two Costas's are lovely people, very friendly, professional and attentive. The food is excellent for the price, I've never had a bad meal in all those years. Would defiantly recommend.

I fancied a kleftiko so popped in and ordered one for the next day. It sounded promising as they only make it to order and had to go get the lamb specially and cook it for hours. It was also 13euro which is certainly pricey so I was expecting good things. It looked great, about half a lamb! trouble was,... More
