Excellent service, delicious food. One of the smaller tavernas in galini, good value and quality. It seems to be a family business.

Niko is a nice guy, who serves all kind of traditional dishes. I can recommend Lamb and the fish. Ask for the days special.

When we visited, we were the only ones there, but we were made to feel welcome & ordered a selection of meze which were lovely. Great location. I'd definitely visit again.

Welcome In one of the most beautiful and picturesque coastal places of Southern Crete, in Agia Galini, is located our traditional tavern "Avli". In a cosy and hospitable space, that combines harmoniously stone and wood, we expect you to try our tasteful suggestions. In our beautiful yard which has pretty flowers and our traditional wood stove, will travel you to past eras. The visitor has the chance to choose delicious dishes from a diverse menu that will satisfy the most demanding palates. In our tavern you may find both traditional tastes that carry the history and culture of Crete, and contemporary Greek and European cuisine's dishes. That, which we think, makes our "Avli" special is the love and enjoyment we have for beautiful, tasteful and happy moments. Our aim is to make you love our space and flavors as much as we do. Katerina & Nikos
