We came here twice during our visit to Kos after recommendations from friends. We were not disappointed, the setting is wonderful in a lovely courtyard. We had the stamnas sharing platter on the first occasion which was outstanding. On the second occasion I had steak with peppercorn sauce, excellent. Highly recommended!

Avli reastaurant is situated in the old building with inner garden called "avli". Goregeous bougainvillea and oil lamps make perfect dining atmosphere. We tried some Greek mezedes and some specialties and our favorite were spicy meatballs in yougurt sauce: yummy! The service was impeccable! We highly recommend it and will come again for sure.
