“One of the best on Kos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

We stumbled into Avli after coming off the day trip to Nissyros. The quiet courtyard setting with bouganvelia is lovely and relaxing, but the main draw is the food. They do well cooked Greek dishes at reasonable prices. We would have returned had we been staying in southern Kos

“Highlight of an otherwise disappointing holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Due to exceptionally poor food at our hotel ( Asteras Resort) we were obliged to eat out whenever we could afford it. (We'd paid for all-inclusive).
Avli was great from the moment we entered.
The good menu produced excellent food from an attentive and friendly staff in a coy traditional setting.Excellent value too.
Can't recommend it enough.
Only suggestion would be an area for non-smoking diners.

“Like a sauna”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

The food is lovely. However, I would not return as it was way too hot with little air circulation. They could do with some fans. Fortunately, we sat inside upstairs which was cooler. Downstairs in the main part the tables are packed close together and it is rather uncomfortable. Even the waiters were sweating buckets (and not in a nice way). You need to book. There are more comfortable restaurants in Kardamena.
