I've been to this restaurant more times than I can remember. They used to serve only fresh seafood and fish. Now most of them are frozen. The location used to be nice but the last few years they moved their business to a location that fits more tables and has nothing to offer.

We tasted fresh fish, local tsipouro, vegetable salads and local mellon. I fully suggest this taverna to everyone visits Avlemonas

Medium taste fish! Expensive too. Only vegetables were good. Tsipouro too. Think twice before entering. The place is great though. Good positioning over Avlemonas village.

Despite the reviews on Tr.advisor we decided to go ahead and try this renowned fish tavern. We did not opt for the lobster but we had seafood and prawn pastas which were both very tasty (the only thing I would have wanted to give a 5/5 would be more prawns in both dishes as they were scarce!). We also tried... More

Yes, it seems that this restaurant is known far and wide, but to be honest I don't understand the fuss. The food is ok. but I could list at least 10 restaurants on Kythera that are much better. The service is also mediocre, as they feel they are somewhat celebrities, and not required to give us good service. There are... More

We visited Avlemonas in mid-May, so there were very few tourists and only a couple of places open to have lunch. In Sotiris we were the only table. So one would guess that the kitchen would have all the available time and eagerness to service us (during the summer things can get very frustrating for the people working in the... More

We visited "Sotiris" tavern to taste its well known spaghetti with lobster. However, the spaghetti and the lobster have never met in a cooking pan before they ended up to our plates. We actually ate spaghetti with tomato sause and a tasteless lobster as side dish. In addition, I am afraid that the lobster must have left its sea environment... More

Situated in the picturesque village of Avlemonas, with its romantic atmosphere and beautiful bays. Whatever you order at Sotiris, it seems as if it was just plucked out of the sea when you placed your order. The freshest fish you can imagine. The lobster spaghetti at Sotiris is a must! possibly the best I've ever had.
