School Dinner at the Old School House!

I do hope the Stray Haven Charity Event on 2nd December was successful for the charity as it certainly was not for the taverna. To advertise a mezze and then provide something completely different was a bad start. A prawn cocktail where you could locate 3 or 4 tiny shrimps and a few pieces of shredded crab stick made a dreadful starter particularly when the accompanying pieces of bread arrived when we had almost finished. The main course consisted of over grilled chicken covered in a thin white sauce accompanied by over cooked, soft cabbage and carrots, couscous and a sloppy, lumpy, watery slosh of mashed potato. The highlight of the meal came with the small piece of plain cake at the end. Our first carafe of wine was not unpleasant but the 2nd had different wine which we saw being poured from a cheap and nasty carton brand. At €13.00 per carafe we expect better particularly when the owner tried to deny that it came from a carton. The owner himself, simply tries too hard and betrays his lack of experience in running a taverna. When presented with the problems his reaction is "He'll speak to the chef" and his blaming the charity for changing the menu was an unacceptable lie.

This was our 2nd visit to the taverna. The first was acceptable but not great, the 2nd assured that we are unlikely to ever return.

Anavargos School House Tavern

Have been a client of the School House for well over 20 years, Several pwners have passed through during this time. Present owners, for approx 10 years must have it right as they are always busy. Try the Steak pie it is very good.

My yougest son comes from Muscat a least twice a year to Cyprus, and the place they head for several time while they are here is the School house, always eats their pork chop.

never lets you down

Always a firm favourite of ours. Don't know whether it's gone up in price over time due to exchange rate/joining the Euro or a combo of the two. However it's famous for chicken & mushroom pie my favourite is the moussaka it's to DIE for and the koupes are also very good. the menu is limited but there is an adequate choice.the family are south african cypriots and very friendly well worth a try for a special meal.
