I do get back to Avli as the food is always tasty, the staff is very attentive & they always do their best so you can enjoy your time. I feel spoiled there. The design of the restaurant is lovely. I always take the foreigners...to this restaurant & all of them love it, when they get back, they dont want to explore new places but ask for Avli. The restaurant offers a la carte menu and the meze. Some nights there is a live music but never too loud so you can enjoy the conversation & the food. During COVID time I have visited a few restaurants in Limassol & must admit Avli has the highest COVID standards. At the entrance like everywhere there are hand sanitizers, there are contactless and the staff ensures you use it, after it they check your temperature , again with contactless device. All Staff wears the masks (properly!) and the gloves. The menu is single use. One of my guests was not keen to go out but we have convinced her. We all felt very safe in this new normal time.More

We ordered 4 mezes, 2 meat and 2 vegetarian. We had seen online an option for veg meze but on the restaurant menu it didn't offer this, the waiter confirmed that he could make these for us anyway. The 4 dips arrived but were the...same size for a 2 person meze, they were very tasty but poor quantity. The main meze was poor quality and very sparse, for €22 a head I expected much better! The veg meze was literally a few grilled green peppers, grilled aubergine some mushrooms and skinny chips!!! The meat meze was dry and poor quality. I have Inc photos of both platters,not worth €88!!! We had eaten at the Karatella restaurant near the castle earlier in the week and I advise the managers to eat there and see what €22 ahead meze is really like, anyone thinking of eating meze at Avli you may as well through your money down the sinkMore

Although I’ve made a reservation through the official site and receiving a confirmation email about my request, when we arrived at the restaurants there was no such reservation! The man in charge apologised and did his best to satisfy us. Musicians were below average and...food was decent, although not enough options for vegetarians.More

We visited Avli tou Vasilea last January as it was a well known tavern for tasty greek/cypriot meze. We were 9 persons and we all agreed that the food was below average. Starters were neutral, meat was horrible and most of it remained in the...dishes. Music was ok, service was ok. I will never visit again. Its a shame the quality has changed.More

It’s a Greek style tavern in the town center, very nice atmosphere, not very loud live music and nice food . The restaurant is offering ala carte menu or meze . The prices are very reasonable considering also the live music provided . The food...quality and quantity was good . It worth a tryMore

There is vegetarian food as meze. Not sure about the non-smoking area though... Maybe inside...
