You are warmly welcomed everytime here and the food really is the best in the resort. I recommend the pita starter with tomatoes, feta and olives. The staff are efficient, well up on the menu and friendly. Cant wait for my next visit.

We stayed at the Minos Beach Art Hotel (which is beautiful but has very expensive and poor quality food) and we were recommended to go to the Avra Restaurant by regulars to the hotel. We can see why hotel regulars recommended it, very reasonable prices,...More
