Great location for a relaxing and romantic time! Went here and found the location tranquil and relaxing sitting by the harbour with exceptional views of the sea. Went there late afternoon and was very happy with what we found. Enjoyed the fresh fruit waffle and our daughter enjoyed an ice-cream waffle (recommended)

My partner and I came to this lovely restaurant for full English Breakfast every day of our week long break, and then for 5 evening meals and I can say were NEVER disappointed. Maria the waitress was just lovely, and very helpful and 'fast'. The views are stunning here - and in the evenings especially and it's an ideal setting... More

Food here was average and compared to other restaurants in the area was quite expensive for what we had. Views over the sea were great though and it was a friendly and relaxed ambience.

Aswell as the comfiest seats in the harbour and a view to die for they now have new rattan furniture which is perfect if your not after a full blown meal and fancy a snack or coffee , day of night. The new look is great, fresh and comfy . Still the best gyros portion in town.

We have eaten here a number of times whenever we go to Sissi. The food is always great and so is the service. The crepes and desserts are divine ! English breakfast is great and we have also tried the Stifado, Moussaka among many other dishes and have been pleased with them all. Reasonably priced and in a lovely spot... More

My sister in law and I stopped here as we really fancied a burger and they had a sign outside for burgers. The seats are very comfortable and the view is nice overlooking the sea. The food itself wasn't great, the burgers were small and not great quality. The food that other people had looked nice, so it may be... More

Another good restaurant overlooking the sea and harbour in Sissi. We ate good food here for lunch and as everywhere here, the waitress was friendly and helpful. The meal was reasonable and the wine was good too at not too high a price.

It's always a plus to find a pleasant restaurant on the first night of a holiday, and we chose Avra from the pack on the bluff to the east of Sissi harbour. We were very well looked after by the 'front of house' lady, and the food lived up to her promises: a large dakkos, Greek salad, gigantes (large beans)... More
