The Avli Restaurant

Just returned from 2 glorious weeks in Elounda and found a lovely old fashioned typical greek taverna run by two english people but don't let that put you off!!!! The food is great and David a qualified and time served chef has taken the time to learn the art of greek cuisine to perfection - try the moussaka the recipe came from the grandmother of one of Davids greek friends, all the dishes are good and english food is available if you don't like greek food - the seafood salad is to die for. Views are spectacular from this restaurant shaded by Olive trees. Sandra and David are a lovely couple who will make you feel extremely welcome and David has extensive knowledge of the area and will be only too pleased to help you with anything. Pay them a visit - they are situated about 5 mins walk from the square on the plaka road.

Yes its just 5 minutes walk from the centre of Elounda in the direction of Plaka. Its near a Supermarket and there is another restaurant on the other side of them. As you walk along the road you can't miss it - normally they display a chalk board outside detailing specials.

Unsurenow - we married back in September 2004, the owners then were Dave and Adrienne - they closed the restaurant for us and provided a wonderful meal of mezedes, we also had Greek dancers (one of them was the son of the owner Dimitri's Steak House), we had a fantastic day! and were transported by the 'happy train'...!
