Much Better!

Since my last review and several visits, I am pleased to report that Vardas is not only much friendlier with better and quicker service, but the food has improved dramatically with more consistent quality.
Much of the service improvement seems to be down to one waitress (East European? Blond), who literally runs herself ragged to make sure that everyone is kept happy.
Breakfast is excellent as well.
Suggestions for further improvement: The cocktail menu could do with modernising as there are no Margaretas, Mojitos etc on it.

great view, poor service, oh they serve food too

Been here a few times recently, and food is served. Portions on the small side (a very thin swordfish steak), sometimes cooked perfectly, sometimes not so (eg a lamb chop was so well cooked was tough to eat), always i seem to get a shaped portion of rice which doesn't look fresh at all. Initially underwhelmed now i`m used to it :). The biggest let down however is the waiting staff, everything seems to be a chore as such 'customer service' is poor, the owner (i think) is excellent but most times we don't see her when we are there. On the plus side, it is metres from the sea, so often great breeze and a pleasent view, also this year (i think) they have invested in new furniture so more comfortable and less shabby than before, also it doesn't require too many € to put something in ye belly and with comments on food in mind it is possibly reasonable value.Why do we go back, its generally ok and as this place overlooks a little beach that we use frequently it gets our custom through convenience but i can't see myself making a dedicated trip here.

Location Location Disapointing

Easy walk from our house and a lovely sandy beach (small), with sunbeds for the use of its customers, so it should be high on our list.

Unfortunately the pretty much uncommunicative staff make it a bit of a cringe every time we visit. There is never any sign of anyone who is in overall control and therefore driving the operation, so there is no real buzz about Vardas, the opening hours are subject to abrupt change out of season. Opening one night, closed the next or appearing to be open but locked up when you get there.

The food is generally ok but pricey for standard fare, although it must be said that the location is superb.

Service a bit slow

As previously mentioned the location is very nice, right next to the sea, the food certainly hit the spot but the service definitley let it down.We arrived and it did take some time to get the order taken then nothing happened for ages,what we did notice was that the staff had changed over,we had to eventually gee them up and asked what was happening with our meal. then when finished we sat for ages with nobody looking near, we had to go inside and ask for the bill ourselves so we could leave

Great location, average food and rude staff

Vardas occupies a lovely location by the beach. You can hear and see teh waves roll-in, have a swim and just enjoy life as it should be in Cyprus.The food honestly is not that bad and the restaurant would be a great place to visit were it not for the staff. They are not-interested, inefficient and plain rude at times. You get hte impression that they just want you to 'F**k the h*ll off'.



Still it is a nice place to visit if you can ignore the staff. Just have a beer here and tehn go to eat somewhere else.
