Found this gem on our 4th visit to Lesvos. Set on a little beach the Taverna is just a superb setting when lit at night. We ate here twice and both times it was very good. I really enjoyed the Youvetsi and the stuffed tomatoes were to die for. Staff were very friendly and this was our favourite taverna of... More

'Avlaki' is a Taverna, established in 1975, situated in just about the perfect location. It's on the South side of the Petra Bay, with distant views across to Molyvos. There is a narrow sandy beach, upon which are Avlaki's own sun-beds and umbrellas. My Wife and I, regular visitors, made the difficult decision to have Feta Sagnaki, White Beans, Potato... More

The food was excellent. We had the fried calamari and the feta cheese appetizer. Right on the beach and was one of our favorite if not our favorite meal in Greece.

Great Greek atmosphere just on the beach. The menu is extensive with a variations of possibilities, all traditional Greek cuisine, sort of home made. I've been there more than once and always came back! Everything is fresh and well prepared: Excellent quality food made simple!

We stayed 10 days at a very close place to Avlaki so we were very lucky for finding this beautiful beach and Avlaki Taberna. The small beach is my favourite in Lesvos. We spend 5-6 days at this beach and we made breakfast and lunches at Avlaki all the time. They were all perfect with friendly service. There was no... More

Great atmosphere, setting and location, right in front of the sea. One of the best tavernas in Petra. Extensive menu with a wide variety of real great Greek dishes. Loved the stifado, lamb chops and sausages. I've been there many times and each time has been a pleasure to eat and enjoy a nice time there.

At this little and hard to find beach we really enjoyed lunchtime. A real traditional Greek restaurant with great local atmosphere.

After sunset this taverna turn into a cosy place . The food is average but with quiet Greek music in the background and wonderful views of the Aegean sea and the castle of Molyvos illuminated in the background, the atmosphere is set to a few hours of peace of mind

If you are in Petra take the short walk from town past the Alma hotel to this hidden family-run gem. The best fried zuchinni in town. Also try the village sausages. Fresh fish every day. They will serve you your drinks when you use their sumbeds, etc.
