Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Service must improve. We had a Greek salad and octopus, which I think was expensive for some octopus. We were charged more than we should have paid and when asked why, the girl told us that she will refund us and did even apologise for...the mistake. We felt like the owner cares more for the locals than tourists.More

In short: DO NOT go, or if you really have to, just order grilled fish and a bottle of still water, nothing else. Even better, buy the fish to take away and do not even seat there! In detail: this restaurant used to be a...quiet place for families and locals alike, with fish grilled to perfection and served with their special lemon & oil sauce. It has now turned into a meeting place for the most hideous and bad mannered people on the island, looking more like the set of the movie 'The Godfather' than like a restaurant: screaming children running everywhere, whose parents do not care about; at least one third of male customers crying out loud and smoking cigars (and even outside this is quite appalling); people sitting with crossed legs one meter away from their tables. The sweaty waiters add a classy touch by patting you whenever and wherever, not as much as Benny Hill used to, but very close. The food: fried calamars ready for the waste bin (and this is a fish restaurant!); appetizers not good nor bad; a 'double portion of French fries for the whole family' -as the waiter advertised between a pat on my shoulder and one on my back- priced at 10 €, turned out to be worse and much smaller than the 3 € portion at any major fast food chain. Food for the kids was bad and in ultra small portions. The bread was burnt. Since this is a honest review, the grilled fish (a 1.2 Kg grouper at 65 €/kg) was really excellent instead, despite several pats on my shoulders even while I was eating. The owner asked us if everything was fine, I replied "No" and told him all of the above. He could not care less and returned back to the other tables, apparently all local people and friends of him. We were so upset, that we left without even waiting for the free watermelon offered at the end of the meal, if ever the owner had any intention to offer it...More

Worst Greek restaurant experience ever. We had to get a chair cushion from the next table because the waiter didn't give us one. Likewise the cutlery. The food was good but definitely not worth the price. At half past one in the afternoon, the tables...were not set, and it only happened after our arrival. No one came to our table for 40 minutes. We didn't have anything to drink, there were untaken dishes on the table, and most of all we were waiting for the bill. After waiting 40 minutes for the bill, I went to the kitchen very angry and no one even apologized. I recommend going to Jimmy's camara about 200m from this horrible restaurant, which you should not go to.More

Though the fish was fine and the overall experience OK, super expensive for what it is. Under a friendly style, the service is basically biasing the customer towards expensive choice or over charging. Typical approach towards tourists. It is a pity because the place is...fine and the people are nice.More

Wish I had read the reviews before stumbling upon this place on our first night. The guys are scam artists essentially, ripping off tourists with average food, bad wine and an aggressive attitude. Go to Katholiki instead: 25% of the price and absolutely fantastic

Empty restaurant, very overpriced, no menus - we were taken to a fridge in the back garage behind the seating area which was not pleasant. We had to choose one fish to share, the price was negotiated - starting at 80Euro per person (obscenely expensive),...for fish, salad and ‘wine. The Greek salad had the most tiny portion of feta, I had to ask for more as there wasn’t enough for some of us to even have one tiny portion. Although the fish was nicely cooked, the service was not good. When asked for the bill, the waiter replied ‘you know the price’! Without clear prices, or a menu the atmosphere was one whereby quite honestly we were utterly taken advantage of. We left disappointed and frustrated. The whole experience was not good. I will never return and have since learned that the locals won’t eat there either as it’s so overpriced.More

My family and I had an amazing time! The food was delicious and everyone at the restaurant from the owner to the waiter were very friendly and fun. The meal was expensive, but worth it. We had grilled grouper, shrimp, saganaki, salad, calamari, wine, and...ice cream with apricot marmalade.More

We were the only people in the restaurant, service was slow and food was in very small portions. Waiters sat on a table all sat on their phones not paying much attention. For the €40 we paid, I wouldn’t recommend.

We visit Afandou Beach every year. Usually we went to another place but it closed down. This year we came twice to Avantis. For the beach for us it's very important that there is a shower and a changing cabin. Visit one: Beach very nice...mantained - service a little bit slow. Toast was dry and gummy. Visit two : No cabin ( it fell down or got damaged and the guys didn't even try to fix it. 1 of the two showers broken too. This time we only ordered drinks. It's very sad to see that they not care at all about their beach. Not sure we'll come again.More

I’ve just had the worst experience of my life: I’ve never seen a fish restaurant, in front of the beach, who serves frozen mussels (without disclosing it) and asks for 40€ per kg… moreover, no one waiters take care of “foreign” guests, they serve and...cure only Greek people. Please, let this restaurant failing!More

Truly loved our lunch here! Some of the most fresh and delicious ingredients you can taste! The Greek Salad was memorable topped with local Greek virgin olive oil. We have traveled extensively and admittedly are harsh critics when it comes to food. We have nothing...but great things to say about this place. Everything was cooked to perfection. The Calamari so fresh you could taste the sea. The vegetables left us speechless only to be capped off by the best grilled fish I have ever had. I would like to congratulate Manolis the proprietor for being a true Philharmonic conductor bringing together this beautiful meal and courteous staff that was a true symphony to my stomach. Don't eat any candied apricots as there will be more left for me!!!🇬🇷❤More
