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

Just returned from Crete after 2 magic weeks during which my husband and I visited Avra loads of times, most days for lunch and for dinner 3 evenings. The 2 Kostas who own the taverna are two of the nicest gentlemen you could ever meet who make everyone so welcome and their food cooked by one of their wives, is... More

during our stay this restaurant was definitely our favourite we went about 3 times the service was great so helpful and friendly with what was recommended as my boyfriend loves seafood! The prices were great and they did offers such as set menus. We tried banana cheesecake one night and it was amazing. Would definitely give this place ago!!

Having tried several restaurants during our 2 wk stay, we came across this gem. The food was excellent,although we did have to wait a while but was definitely worth it. The staff were very polite and friendly and never seemed to stop rushing about. Probably due to the fact that most of the tables were full or reserved each night.Still... More
