Very chilled setting

Away from the busy beaches this place just oozes Greek culture in terms of the relaxed setting by the beach. Just enough space to hold maybe 30-40 on the beach, Avlaki serve reasonable quality meals all day, a little music in the background and peace...very very peaceful. The food could be better... read more

If you are in Petra take the short walk from town past the Alma hotel to this hidden family-run gem. The best fried zuchinni in town. Also try the village sausages. Fresh fish every day. They will serve you your drinks when you use their sumbeds, etc.

On our 3rd visit we were invited to join friends on a visit to the avlaki taverna. It was well worth the 15 minute walk from Petra towards Anaxos to find this little gem, the food is lovely and the sunbeds are free to customers. The sea is perfect for snorkelling and is shallower than the main petra beach. We... More

Avlaki isn't just about the Taverna, their good food, friendly service it's also about their beach. They have rows of sun beds in front where you can spend a lovely day, dipping in to the sea when too hot, snorkelling on a calm day with small fishes swimming across the natural reefs. Then pop in to Avlaki for a drink... More

This is our second trip to Petra and on our previous visit we visited the beach on which this restaurant is at the end of our holiday and wished we had discovered it earlier. So this time around we decided to make the extra walk and spend the days there. The Aviaki is typically Greek and has the usual treats... More

Back to Lesvos again for our 6th visit, we usually lunch here, and this year was no exception. Slightly off the beaten track, but well worth the effort to find. It's got it all, good food, good service, good welcome, fee sunbeds for customers, a secluded beach of its own - a real gem. We usually have fish here -... More

We have been here a few times now and it is a lovely place to have a beach day as there is no road noise. the family who run it are friendly and service is good. We have always enjoyed a nice lunch here.
