Great traditional taverna

Costas, the owner, is so welcoming and always happy to see you; even at 11pm after coming in from airport welcomes with open arms and still people in there. Great atmosphere and great Greek music from jukebox.

Excellent Meal

We went here last week for the first time, we actually went on Sunday evening but found it to be closed so returned on the Monday
There was around six other tables dining whilst we were there and the atmosphere was nice
Me and my Son had the Meze and it was excellent, had to tell them to stop as we were full
My wife had the pork chop and it was a killer, as big as the plate and tasty too

Overall very good dining experience and good atmosphere, will be going back again soon.

best chicken dish in a while

Been here a few times, first visit enjoyed a very good juicy marinated chicken dish (€13) and partner had a kleftico (€14) which was also well revieved. Second time we shared a (generally well done) mixed grill which was a little disapointing after first visit. Service both times was a touch quick and ‘surly’ but not in anyway unfriendly, just efficient. Small carafe of wine at €6 and large water at €3. Nicely furnishing and finished place, casual friendly atmopshere. Would go again.

And it's still the best place to eat!

Again several visits througout 2013 and never disapointed. Huge mezes for 18 Euro are well worth it. If you can't manage it all, which we couldn't, then just ask for a 'doggy bag' or wave a white flag at the kitchen.

Even on Monday or Tuesday you could struggle to get a table mainly due to the Cypriot clientele - well that tells you something surely?

Other than a mexe there is plenty of choice all good quality food and very well cooked and served.

The staff are ALWAYS polite, friendly and helpful - a fine example of what Cyprus is all about - keep it up PLEASE!

A delightful surprise

I must have driven past this restaurant hundreds of times and thought of trying it one day, but somehow never got around to it. It is not sited well, out of town on the old Paphos Limassol highway, where traffic whistles past the car park entrance, but it frequently looks busy and that is usually a good sign.

Then on a Monday evening in October, with a guest to entertain, the restaurant I had planned to visit was closed and so I thought I would take a chance and try out this one. What a great decision!

It was Monday, not the most popular dining out day, and there is a recession to consider, with lots of local folk out of work, yet around 7.30pm the restaurant was already quite busy and by 9.30pm most tables were occupied and the place was buzzing.

I have eaten a lot of mezes in Cyprus. Some have been good, the odd one memorable, but far too often the food is re-heated or overcooked. Not here! Each dish was prepared freshly, and cooked to perfection.

I am quite partial to liver and that is usually ruined by overcooking. Not here! Without doubt the meze was the best cooked of any that I have enjoyed. The lountza was cut thick to retain its texture and moistness, the pork melted in the mouth, the lamb chops crisp but juicy; and there were some interesting additions to the usual fare, such as courgette flowers stuffed with cheese and fried in a light batter, and quail.

The menu says that they will continue serving food until you ask them to stop. I can believe it! By 9.45pm we were so stuffed that we did just that, and still they brought an enticing variety of fruits and bowls of ice cream to the table.

The service was polite and discreet, all hot dishes were piping hot and the experience memorable. €70 for three people, including drinks, I felt was excellent value. I will definitely be returning to try some of the other choices on the menu.
