“Reinvented shrimp saganaki”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

To join the chorus of other reviewers, Avra is a fantastic restaurant, properly recommended by guidebooks and word of mouth alike. Book in advance for a choice table in the enchanted garden. On the limited downside: service ranged from attentive to absent within the same meal. Also, the house wine is fairly bad, so look to the extensive wine list instead.

“Not impressed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

We were not impressed by the food, the waiter told us that their special dish was chicken with curry and rice. We had it and we couln't help to compare it with the asian food we have in Hong Kong. It was a bit strange. Patrons were mostly foreigners and the feeling was international. Good wine list, pricey. Nice ambiance.

“wonderful meeting point”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

Avra is an old-timer on the main drag of Mykonos Town. It serves breakfast, as well as coffee and drinks well through the night. Avra is an institution: it affords views of the crowds walking up and down the main avenue. Stop by by all means and have an after-dinner drink or a morning coffee: this is a Mykonos MUST

“Expensive, touristic, a bit pretentious. Nice garden”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

It's a beautiful setup, the internal garden is gorgeous and this is why it's so popular. Make sure you book a good table otherwise you can find yourself in a blind corner as it happened to us even if we booked with a fair advance (two days). Food is overpriced and not really interesting. But Mykonos is not about food, it's about showing up and been seen so eating here is a part of the usual charade. Be prepared to pay minimum 100 euro for two with an average bottle of wine. They have an extensive wine list regularly overpriced as well. We had a mussaka and a greek salad both forgettable, lamb chops and swordfish both acceptable. Service is accurate. We will not repeat the experience.
