Some of the best lamb I have ever eaten was at the Aeraki. Great service and delicious food that is reasonably priced. The taverna has a wood fire burning in the winter months that was so comforting after a long chilly walk on the beach. Unfortunately is was only open on weekends or I would have eat there more often.

As we understand it, all of the food at Aeraki is locally produced and organic. The menu is innovative by Greek standards, and we haven't had a bad meal there yet. There is a view over Almyrida Bay, but limited access to the beach.

There is a young guy working in the kitchen who really amazed me with the food he served. He is really good and if you want something extra and not so expensive, you should visit this place. Open in wintertime every weekend. Very friendly staff and really good service, can highly reccomend it.

We came 2 or 3 times on holiday. Always a warm welcome, excellent service and delicious food. The view across the bay is a bonus. We look forward to coming back next year.

The end of September and beginning of October is very quiet and a lot of empty tables in the Tavernas but Aeraki made you feel welcome despite that. Food was very good and portions as everywhere seem to be huge. The owner is charming and on our last day after a swim in the sea we had a couple of... More

We ate t this restaurant quite a few times. Nico who served us was very friendly and helpful. As we are not big eaters we asked for smaller portions and he served us what we asked for and priced it accordingly. He was very helpful and had a good sense of humour. Some tables look out over the bay. Service... More

Without doubt the best restaurant. The mousakka is stunning and cheap. The lamb special awesome and try the tuna pasta salad. Trust me its great. The owner with the pony tail is very attentive. Food comes quickly and the locals go there which is always a good sign.....

we have eaten here in previous years and been reasonably impressed. This year we followed our usual pattern of a trying 6 or 7 restaurants and then voting on repeat visits. This year we ate here 3 times which tells its own story. We found the service to be friendly and prompt. Our party was 5 adults and a 3... More

We received a lukewarm welcome and were seated at a bare table in a bare restaurant with no atmosphere. We didn't receive serviettes or condiments at all which most of the other tables had. We were given a small amount of bread each with a bland, creamy spread. We didn't have a starter in anticipation of the large portions mentioned... More

We ate twice at Aeraki while we were staying in Almyrida - both times the food was superb, particularly the sea bass, and the setting right on the sea front is great for watching the sunset. One the first occasion we couldn't fault the place and felt we got really good service, so went back with great expectations. Unfortunately the... More
