Nothing to write home about

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... read 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...

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
