Great setting, great food, relaxed atmosphere and fantastic service at a very reasonable price.

The place is so beautiful that a couple came and had their wedding pictures taken around the church.

We decided to visit after reading the good reviews, We were not disappointed Great food and wonderful host. Could not decide what to have so opted for the Greek mixed plate, saves choosing and all tasted great. Was a little difficult to find in the dark but well worth the trip to the local police station for directions.

We stayed 13-20 August, and went to this taverna twice. It was by far our favourite taverna. The food is exceptional, and Nikos & Katrine were the perfect hosts! We hope to go back and try more of their Cretan delights!
As someone else said, for a true local taverna, stay well away from the restaurants on the beach front, they were ok but not nearly as flavoursome, or of the high quality that Avli Taverna provides.

We have eaten here before and the high standard of food does not change. The chilli feta is amazing if you like that sort of thing. It a great way to try lots of local dishes in an inexpensive way. The courgette balls and fried courgettes are lovely as is the meatball, fava (chick pea purée) and saganaki ( fried cheese). Defiantly who're a visit.

There are a million restaurants in Hersonissos, but if you are looking for a real local Cretan tavern, avoid the beach road. This one is great, right in the center but if you don't know it you will miss it. From the main church of Hersonissos, take the side street uphill and you find this taverna 50 meters after the Chinese restaurant.
Don't bother with the menu. Ask Nikos to try a variety of mezé and you will love it. For sure you will be back the second time and you will order again your favourite mezé as well as trying something new.
For sure this is the place if you are interested, for once, more on food quality than on the view from your table.
