Nice tavern average food

The location was good. The food was not bad but also not to remembered. Service and prices was ok and the owners was honest to say us that there are not much fresh fish to offer on the date we have been there.

Avlemonas is a beautiful, small village, on the east of the island, a little claustrophobic for too long a stay, you need a car to come and go, but this is the oldest fish restaurant there - really quality food - fish - though in truth all the little restaurants there are good... this is the biggest though, and the...

I have heard so much about "Sotiris" but in comparison with what I have experienced from other places around Kythira, its reputation should be reconsidered. The view is amazing though.

Fresh fish is never cheap in Greece but Avlemonas being a fishing village you get what you pay for. Fried barbounia and grilled faggri tasty and fresh. Appetizers were average. White wine quite good. Couldn't fault service and atmosphere. Very clean with a nice view to the central bay of the village.

Supposedly one of the old time classics of the island. The fish was good but the starters were awful. Extremely overpriced. The only bright side was the service.

Location is very nice, you also get a nice view of the water from the terrace. The place was packed by a group of tourists, yet the service was prompt and courteous. The food (no seafood ordered) was good, but nothing really excelled. We gave it another try during our stay and the experience was similar. So yes, if you... More

We have heard a lot about this restaurant from the locals, which seem to have a high esteem of it. Alas, it took the waiter 30 mins to take an order, another hour to get us served. The problem seemed to be the bad coordination of the staff, consisting of only a single seasoned waiter and a couple of apprentices,... More

Sotiris is a very famous restaurant but certainly below expectations and reputation. We had the famous lobster pasta which was just ok. Service is medium to bad.

We were so excited to spend our last night on the island at this restaurant. It was the worst place we had eaten at, having been too atleast 12 other restaurants before this one. The service was terrible and the waiter was both rude and condescending and not accommodating of foreigners. We had ordered the lobster pasta, it was dry... More

In comparison to some other reviews I read, we had a very pleasant and enjoyable experience in the 'Sotiris' tavern in the picturesque Avlemonas village. Setting is simply stunning and service was also very good. we preordered our chosen fish (unmistakably fresh) so we can enjoy the sea for an afternoon swim. The meal was ready on time; salads and...
