“Consistently better than good!”
Reviewed August 26, 2014

Well, my favourite taverna has had a facelift and doesn't it look posh?

Didn't change the quality of the food and service tho' which was as always EXCELLENT!
Some new additions to menu this year which made choices even harder - not enough days in the holiday (or spare body weight!) to appreciate all the great meals Litza continues to amaze us with (you're not too bad either Costas and love the drink guessing game!)

Both Costas are great hosts and continue to amaze me with their energy.

Meal and wine prices very reasonable so if you are in the area - go on - give it a try you won't be disappointed!

See you next year!

“Fab food, great hosts!”
Reviewed August 21, 2014

We chanced across Avra on our first (late arrival) night in Aghios Nikolaos and pretty much went back for a last drink every night. The two Costas are just really friendly and honest people, always ready to let us try drinks and taste food.

We had dinner there twice. Husband loved the moussaka and I just had to have the Prawn Provencal, cooked and flambéed at the table...absolutely delicious.

Would recommend in a heartbeat.

“Extremely good”
Reviewed August 14, 2014

We have eaten here 3 or 4 times in the past week and each time was really good. Great service from a friendly owner who was pleased to see us every time. My husband loved the beautifully cooked garlic mushrooms and also the tuna salad, both were 1st class. Not to mention the chicken souvlaki, steak, keftedes...all extremely good. There are four 3 course set menus available for 9,90 euros very good value for what you get. Highly recommended.

“Recommended.”
Reviewed August 12, 2014

Nice restaurant, good food but the best thing is the friendship of the two Costas!
If you need to know if it's snowing in Athens this is the place to go!
Thank you.
