“A must in you are in Ag Nik”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Back again to my favourite restaurant which lived up to expectation. Food as good as ever -service impeccable. Why would you want to eat anywhere else? Took a newcomer this time who was so impressed demanded we ate no where else. Good Greek cuisine cooked to perfection - go and enjoy! Thanks to the two Costas out front but special thanks to the girls in the kitchen .

“AMAZINGGGGGG Xx”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

Just returned from a week stay in Ag Nik, 5 of the 7 nights we ate at Avra and I must say the 2 nights we didn't eat here, once at Knossos and once at Kri Kri we were thoroughly dissapointed. We found the meals at Avra to be plentiful and some of the most delicious food i've ever eaten. The 2 guys that served ( so sorry i didn't catch their names) were the lovliest most polite, attentitive staff ever. Always a smile and nothing was ever too much trouble. Creatures of habit that we are, we sat at the same table every night, except the last nights when 2 young ladies were sat there, turns out it was the owners daughter and he immediately came over offering to move the girls somewhere else so we could have 'our' table, an offer we declined but such a lovely gesture from him. I found their garlic bread with tomato and feta cheese to die for and I have been craving their chicken provencal ever since I landed home. A superb place and such a chilled atmosphere, we never felt rushed and would sit and enjoy a cocktail after our meal. I cannot say enough nice things about this place and the staff, number one on my list of favourite places to eat :)

“Great food and friendly staff.”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

The Avra Bistro is conviently placed near one of th main beaches meaning a quick bite to eat is never difficult. The staff are incredibly friendly and the menu has a range of different styles.
