It was the same excellent restaurant as always which meant we had to go EVERY night. And why not? What more could you ask for? Superb food and menu choice - great prices and extremely good hosts. Lovely family run taverna with a welcoming atmosphere. Love it, love it, love it!

As it happened we were there 3 times this week with tonight being the final evening the Avra was open before the winter break. As usual the food was excellent, the service... More

We heard great things about this restaurant so decided to have the last meal of our 2 week holiday here and boy we were not disappointed, the food was the best we have tasted in a long time, the service was very friendly and atmosphere was good too, the only regret was not visiting this place earlier as we would...

It's a nice restaurant with a good broad menu - we've only been there for lunch, but this has been very good. It's friendly with good service - I can recommend the Cretan omelette.

The Avra remains very popular and it is worth reserving a table to ensure you can be seated. We were treated to free bread and croutons served with 3 dips, red pepper and feta cheese, beetroot and yoghurt and hummus. This got the evening off to a good start. We shared a starter of shrimp saganaki and it was beautiful.... More
