Warmly received by the waiter who was nice and chatty and asked us where we were from. Lovely cosy ambiance on an otherwise busy street. We shared some inventive tapas dishes (the octopus in particular was delicious) and some great wine. Felt like quite a new place but quickly filled up with a mixture of locals and tourists. Lovely meal, would recommend.

This is certainly one of my top restaurants in Paris in terms of the food and wine offer, the experience (you share all the dishes, which makes it fun and amenable), and the kindness of the owner and staff. The ingredients and recipes are seasonal and fresh, inspired by Mediterranean cuisine. We got the polenta sticks, calamari orzo risotto, a delicious steak (a point) and a superb cheesecake made of sweet tomatoes and olive oil. It's difficult to go wrong with anything in the menu.

Great terrace outside to enjoy the good weather. There are windows on each side to protect from the occasional wind.

Started with the olives and a glass of prosecco. My friends had a glass of rose and white. We followed with the courgettes (OMG, amazing!!) and potatoes which came with an olive oil coriander mix. My friends had the octopus (poulpe) with potato.

The furniture outside is original and comfortable. A family of three had a drink across from us but we were spaced out enough so it was enjoyable not to be heard. Inside, it was cosy and elegant without being stuffy. Their bar was well stocked and the selection was full of wines ranging from organic, local or international wines.

Definitely a place to go back to with friends or family.

Everything was absolutely perfect on the night we visited Avli... the hosts, the atmosphere and of course the food. An ingenious mix of greek, spanish and more generally southern european tapas, cleverly and inspiringly concocted by a very talented chef. Portions are actually very fairly sized and adequately priced, we had 9 of them between the three of us. I will absolutely go back on my next trip, absolutely no doubt about this, and i have already told many of my friends about this wonderful new challenger on the Paris gourmet scene...
