Very, very quiet

We hadn't been here for about two years so we called in for a quiet dinner for two last night and that's exactly what we got - we were the only two people in there!

The two waiters (and a chef) looked delighted to see us and the service was impeccable. They, like us, wondered where everyone was and why it has been so quiet in all the restaurants lately even though tourism is, allegedly, well up. I can only assume that it is the influence of all-inclusive hotels.

Any way we both had the TEX signature starters - the marinated herrings with a vodka shot and the hot, breadcrumbed, avocado in shrimp sauce. The herrings worked better than the avocado and was pronounced excellent.

The grilled Sea Bass was very good indeed as was was the Chicken Don Pepe (strips of chicken in a tomato and chilli sauce). The only problem with the chicken was that it had cloves in the sauce which I loathe.The vegetables were served separately - roast potatoes, cauliflower and carrots.

For dessert we tried the Creme Brulee and the Halva ice cream neither of which were brilliant but not bad.

We were offered free liquers at the end of our meal together and given a 20% discount card for our next visit.

I feel rather sorry for decent restaurants like this which are clearly struggling and deserve better.

Promise lived up to!

After such a long wait since my previous visit, we tried Tex in anticipation, and were not let down. Sometimes its easy to let your expectations exceed the reality, but again Tex came up trumps. Although new faces were there and a great new set menu available, we selected our trusted favourites and were delighted yet again, Thanks Tex restaurant.

Worth a Visit

Four of us went to try it out and were not disappointed, food was good and priced fairly against other lesser establishments.

Not many other customers, not much atmosphere, however had a good meal and chat within our company, and will certainly visit again.

Good choice on menu and wine list.

Simply the best !!!

I have lived here in Cyprus for 12 years and have been using this restaurant, and their previous one, for all that time. I keep coming back because ITS SIMPLY THE BEST!!!! The hospitality, food, service and ambiance is second to none and Tex and Eva have been giving discounts throughout the winter. It has kept people coming back in the leaner times. If I had to sum up Tex's in one word it would be CONSISTENCY - its consistently good. Above all, he knows just how to cook my blue steak - unlike most Cypriot restaurants. Try it - I promise you won't be disappointed. A very happy customer.

Tex's Discount Scheme ???

Went with three friends,they wanted to dine early to take advantage of the discounts offered. Tex makes a big play on how in this period of recession everyone needs to pull together to help each other, so he is doing his bit with discounts.

Starters were priced on a par with most decent restaurants, but main courses had increased in price so with the discount they were only the same as anywhere else (some discount) Chicken 16.75, Duck breast 18.75, small Salmon fillet 17.50, Sea bass 17.50. These all had a 25% discount off the bill, so we ended up paying about the same as we would have if we had gone to any similar restaurant.

The food was well cooked and presented, but I don't think we will bother going again.
