“Taverna with its own beach”
Reviewed May 5, 2012

There are two places to eat on the beach by Alma hotel, but Avlaki is by far the nicest. Grab a sun bed, order a frappé or a meal and enjoy the beautiful view towards the sea.

“a little hide away.”
Reviewed December 30, 2011

If like us you do not want to sit onthe beach all day...then take a walk down the sea front at Petra toward the alma hotel on the headland (by the way this is also worth a vist to get somegood views of petra and the surrounding countryside). Once you are they foolow a lillte dir path around the head land until you come to two restaurants and a small secluded beach...by now you will need a drink..and what better place. You can then sit on one of the sun loungers to while away a couple of hours ...maybe get some lunch before heading off back...good way to spend a few hours.

“Nice food, nice place”
Reviewed August 24, 2011

We went a few times to this restaurant , this year as well as the last years and the food is very nice and tastfull. The service is good and there is a lovely terrace close to the beach. It is a little bit more expensive than others restaurants, but as I said, the food tastes very nice and they have a clean kitchen.
This is my second favourite restaurant of Petra.
By the way, that comment about the bad smell is not at all correct. Do not forget that this restaurant is placed in the middle of nature and I prefer that to in the middle of a city.
Many greetings

“Small and smelly Beach”
Reviewed August 26, 2010

This is one of 2 tavernas on a very small beach. There are about 20 sunbeds and a very 'eggy' smell. Dare I say it, a toilet type smell. The food however is very good but the smell is awful.

It is worth a visit, not in the evening but in the daytime.
