“Overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

We went to this Taverna on our second night, whilst the food was good it is definitely overpriced and the service leaves a bit to be desired. If the taverna wishes to become more upmarket I would suggest the owner goes to the Olive lounge in Lourdas. Otherwise he needs to lower his prices so he is similar to other restaurants in the area. This is not meant to be overly critical, for a taverna it is good, as an upmarket restaurant it is not good enough. The owners own white wine however was very good.

“Idyllic little taverna”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

Beautiful little place, actually just a few minutes from the airport but hidden away from the rest of the world through some historic parts of the village and countryside. Idyllic location overlooking a quiet beach, lovely views and a cooling breeze, much-welcomed after we decided to walk to Preview from Lassi in the morning heat!
The food was wonderful, we had beautifully fresh fish and a traditional baked tomato, feta, scrambled egg affair with bread followed by amazing walnut cake, chocolate fondant and ice cream. Simpler sandwiches and light snacks also looked good. The perfect place to while away a Sunday afternoon. Loved it!

“Delicious food with a gorgeous view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

Lovely restaurant on the beach at Avithos. Great menu with lots of choice- traditional Greek dishes done beautifully with fresh ingredients. Especially enjoyed the squid, fried local cheese, moussaka and seabass. The highlight though was the olive oil that they produced themselves, have brought several bottles home with us! They also make their own wine which was outstanding and has won awards. Definite must visit!
