Once again found Avra to be the place for very friendly service, good choice of food, be it for breakfast, snacks, lunch or evening meal. Nice views of the harbour entrance to sit and boat watch, excellent service and reasonable prices. Will certainly re-visit.

There are several restaurants with the same lovely view over the harbour and waves crashing over the rocks, but we felt this was the best, the service was outstanding as was the food. All the restaurants in Sissi are excellent value, but this one had just that much more.

The Avra breakfast is delicious and beautifully presented. Their apple pie is also delicious. Overlooking the harbour, this is the best place for breakfast, lunch and dinner

Waitresses were lovely individuals who knew how to do their job and were very welcoming and friendly! Bartender was a bit ignorant as we witnessed the waitresses going to give him our orders and after about 20 mins sitting and waiting for our cocktails and toasties we finally got them! Toasties were of okay quality but on our way out... More

We loved sitting at the seafront tavernas for our evening meals and watching the sunset. They all have very similar menus but this taverna stood out for its comfy seats, friendly waitresses and we think it had the best food of all of those we tried. Particularly good - the fried zucchini starter, the grilled shrimp and the moussaka.

Avra has the best view and comfiest seat in the harbour, I say that every time but its true. We always head here every year for our Gyros portion, Sissi wouldn't be the same without it. Lovely food as always but I have to be totally honest not the same without the lovely Rachel and Nikos. A must in Sissi,... More

Thankfully we found this place on our second night. We have a thing about looking out to sea while having our meal and this is one of the few restaurants where we found the views stunning and the food excellent. We shared a starter of stuffed vine leaves. Never having had them before I can’t compare with any other restaurant,... More
