This place is really very special. The views are spectacular, especially at sunset making it a perfect haunt for couples looking for a really special evening that oozes romance. The food is outstanding - the staff respectful and polite; friendly if you want a chat but they seem very aware that couples might only have eyes for each other! :)

This restaurant has a nice view but I didn't like the food because I was sick afterwards. The owner is nice but if the food is not good.... Only for drinks I would say...

We've known Michaelis, the owner, since 2006, when he had a restaurant in Petra. When we revisited in 2008, we were delighted to find he now has the Achilles Well - and we visit several times each time we go to Petra. We went four times during our recent holiday, and had wonderful food - goat soup, goat in the pot, roast lamb, rooster and pasta, pork on the spit, rabbit stifado. All delicious. There's a good menu of more traditional Greek food, but his specials are really beautiful.
The views are breathtaking; and to watch the sun set over Petra as you eat delicious food, is an experience not to be missed. You'll need a car, or a taxi - Petri is a long way up the hill - but you won't be disappointed. Main meals 7 - 9 Euro on average.

Petri is a small village in the hills above Petra. Achilles Well is next to the car park. It has beautiful views of Petra and the sunsets can be quite stunning. The food is very traditional and very good. There is normally goat cooked slowly until it melts in your mouth. Lamb in red wine is also a favourite of ours. We have visited Achilles Well on many occasions and have yet to be disappointed in the food or service. The biggest supprise of the evening normally comes when the bill has to be paid. To say that eating here is good value for money would be an understatement.

The people eating here are locals and visitors that have heard of Achilles Well by personal recommendation. To me that says it all. On our last visit the Taverna was full, so one Greek family waited for a 45 minutes for a table to become free. Book if you want a table at the front to watch the sunset.
