“Taverna Avlona”
Review of Taverna Avlona

Taverna Avlona
Ranked #6 of 13 Restaurants in Olympos
Restaurant details
Reviewed June 6, 2016

Everything being so steep in the village of Olympos the people there relied for their agriculture on the plateau of Avlona - about a 90 minutes walk further north. There are still many small houses in this quite big hamlet, but only about a dozen permanent inhabitants. Two of them - the couple Anna and Michalis - run the tavern 'Avlona' and also rent out 4 rooms.

This tavern is a popular stop for hikers, since many trails go through Avlona and there are paths from here to Diafani, Olympos, Vananda Beach, the archaological site of Vroukounda or the bay of Tristomo. The house speciality are artichokes, which grow profusely here. Their favorite way of preparing them is as an omelet.

There is pleasant outdoor seating and one gets easily in touch with other hikers (but Avlona can also be reached by car). Anna and Michalis are friendly persons and she speaks well English, having spent some years in her youth in Baltimore. When very busy, they are helped out by their two sons. Their daughter Marina again some people might know from the much visited tavern 'Olympos' in Olympos. When here the last time, Anna gave us to try from the bread, which she had taken out from the oven. It is known that in Olympos there is no bakery and all families do their own bread.
