Description: A roustic fine dinning restaurant, in the heart of the historical center of Rethymno, settled in a gorgeous Cretan mansion of the 15th century. Increadible lush courtyard (Avli in Greek), impressive wine cellar (Enoteca), unique flair and authentic Cretan cuisine at it's best! Refined, distinguished dishes, modern but true to their traditional roots. The focus is on the ingredients, the majority of them local and organic, artfully transformed into sophisticated cooking. Exquisite, valuable cookery lessons are also organised, upon demand. Prepare and cook typical Cretan dishes, learn a lot about local history and culture, feel the spirit of real Crete. Avli was established back in 1987, in the first rennovated building of the Old town; an inspired pioneer vision for the rebirth and highlighting a beautiful, but otherwise neglected area. Since then Avli is a passionate supporter of spreading the Cretan gastronomy in the local trade and a dedicated ambassador of the Greek wines.
