I visited this restaurant with my girlfriend on a very quiet evening. The two waitresses were friendly and attentive- they didn't hassle us in the street like others which always puts us off!

Its a lovely little taverna, although not entirely authentic in the grand scheme of things, but the setting it is in is lovely, over looking the harbour and seafront in Sissi.

We had lunch at the Avra several times throughout our week in Sissi and enjoyed the food and service. The yogurt and honey was excellent and good value at 3 euros and I loved the strawberry cheesecake :-) It was a very pleasant spot for lunch with a lovely view of the harbour.

The view from the restaurant, especially at sunset, is worth a visit on its own. The food and service were off a very good standard and the prices reasonable. Would definately return.
