Our host at our lodgings suggested we try this when our first choice was not available. Such a find! It was a nasty, chilly evening but warm enough although partly exposed(had plastic drop-down sides and outdoor heaters. A brightly-coloured wrap is provided for each table to help ward off any chills. We had booked which was helpful as we saw many turned away.

The service was exceptional. Two glasses of the local firewater were provided gratis, as we're a couple of excellent dips. The menu was extensive, making choice difficult. We finally settled on the lamb and a chicken dish, along with an appetiser which we definitely did not need, despite its deliciousness. The lamb was melt-the-mouth tender and was accompanied by excellent roast potatoes. The chicken was likewise tender, but a little too salty for the eater's taste. All was fresh and delicious.

All staff were courteous and attentive. The waiter's level of service was fantastic; just the right balance between attentiveness and unobtrusiveness. Unfortunately, due to the newness of the establishment, they did not yet accept cards,but we were assured this was only a matter of time. The one downside to the restaurant was the couple at the next table who smoked continually, wreathing everyone else in their smoke. Perhaps a policy of smoking outdoors might be a good idea?

The bill was remarkably small for such a good meal and experience. We are not tippers, but we left a generous one as we felt this establishment merited it.

We just visited Avocado restaurant, and had a great time. The service was great, and food was mostly good. We had an amazing Greek Salad, which by the way comes in a huge bowl of bread ( so do not order extra bread, as you will be charged a €1 per person if order it). My wife had an ok chicken, which was a bit dry, and I had their traditional dish, which I cannot pronounce, but it was great. The highlight for me was the fact that 1/2 a litre of house wine ( which was great by the way), was the same price as a bottle of sparkling water, €5 each.
Overall a great place to have lunch or dinner if a view is not a must. Great service.

We were recommended to try here buy our hotel. Lovely setting and staff very friendly, nice atmosphere. No view. Good service, not too rushed. Very reasonably priced.
Unfortunately due to only being open a couple of weeks the first 2 things we chose were not available. It would have been useful to have been given this information when we sat down rather than after we had made out choices
The food we ended up with was good, nothing exceptional just good
Maybe in a couple of months, once they are established it would be worth trying again

The service was amazing! The wait staff is very friendly and helpful, and the food is good quality and delicious. The prices are fair for the food, and the view of the sunset is gorgeous. Off the beaten path so not super crowded. Worth visiting more than once.

After a week in Greece, we finally ate an inventive and tasteful meal while enjoying perfect service. Prices were no more or less than anywhere comparable. We were greeted with a shot of a local drink, and free dips while we looked over the menu. Salads were each large enough for two people, but too delicious to split. The mixed greens with pears and salami in a homemade orange vinaigrette was fresh and delicious. Our main courses were fresh and delicious too. Definitely a place to go back and sample something else!
