Good food, good wine, great view, good friendly service. These people are genuinely friendly and clearly enjoy being 'mine host'. They took the time to chat and had interest in us. The food is above average and in good size servings. Prices for the area a bit above but within reason.

Warm friendly staff with excellent choice of food well presented and cooked the way you like it. Ideally situated with a view of the sea makes this a romantic setting.

Excellent traditional taverna. We had a lunch here and on another day a dinner, and every dish was first rate (not least the fava). It's beyond the left-hand end of the promenade as you face the sea, but most definitely worth the walk from the centre of the village (where we were staying). Work up an appetite!

We are very happy to find this cute taverna with a beach. Food is excellent and staff very kind and laid back. We spent there the most of our days during the 7 days of our vacation in Petra. Highly recommended by us for atmosphere, beach and food!

'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.
