Generally Good Experience

Stopped here, only briefly, for desserts after dining elsewhere earlier in the evening. Venue has a 'traditional' feel to it, but touching on dated, and i recall it being a bit dark, and there were many other customers, whilst the service was efficient. We enjoyed fruit salad, fresh local fruit and a slice of Baklava, washed down with a bottle of water and a glass of Ficardos red wine : all for the valuable sum of €7-8 per person.

Busy restaurant with high standards

Even in mid November the place was heaving most nights but what an eclectic mix: tourists, resident ex-pats, locals (lots), couples, small parties, big groups (especially for the excellent mezzes. The service is speedy but everyone is treated with care and attention. Stelios and his team can't do enough for you. The steaks are some of the best in town and feature dishes like Rack of Lamb and Chataubriand, while expensive, are well worth trying on special occasions

a quality location

One of the few busy restaurants in the area despite being pricey but you can understand why when you taste the food and experience the service. Stelios, Mario and the staff work their socks off to make your evening a success. We were even offered a lift back to our apartment because of unexpected heavy rain! Had the Rack of Lamb for two on our last evening - marvellous

I don't want to tell you... it's my secret

This was our find of the holiday & went there twiceDon't let the neon green sign, the seaside name or the tree out front put you off.huge menu & specials most nights.We made it for suckling pig (on a thurday) & so glad we made that choice. It was melt in the mouth stuff.The cyprus starters were a popular choice & to be honest you were nearly too full to have main course!Can recomend the sheftalia & dolmades too.Popular with tourists & locals always a good sign & plenty of people trying a MezeNice touch at the end of your meal with complimentary fresh fruit & orange liquer for the ladies & brandy for the gentswe will be back, I want to work my way through the menu!

An OK lunch

Lunch.

Pork chop, chips & salad. Big chop with a nice edge of fat. Substantial portion of salad.

Vegetable pizza - thick, doughy base, covered with too much undercooked bland cheese, topped with a few mixed veg and chilli. My partner said it was OK - if more cheese on toast than pizza. I thought it looked vile and wasn`t up for tasting the forkful offered.
