Great hospitality; amazing chocolate

Best, if not one of the best hot chocolate that I've had. Also great to hear about their chocolate production and varieties on offer. Will return and consider doing the workshop.

You shall love this place. The owners will explain to you everything you d like to know about chocolate and why "their" chocolate is the real thing. Dont leave if you dont try the hot chocolate. 5 stars for this because in a simple small village place like this, they managed to create a well known chocolate museum and a... More

We booked from the UK by email. We arrived 10 minutes late and I apologised for that, however, the lady was busy with a couple (who had booked the day before) - she hadn't checked her bookings so didn't realise we were due until I showed her the relevant emails. So we waited and eventually started 3/4hr after our booked... More

I wrote a review for the Platres Chocolate Workshop some years ago. They recently emailed me to say they had changed their location in Platres to the centre of the village, so I decided to pay another visit to see if anything had changed. Yes it has - for the better. The new shop is much larger, right in the... More

Very good job done there. Really "fresh" and "homemade". Quite big variety for such a small place although they have it in small quantities.

We were really lucky to find this unique chocolate workshop while coming back from the Troodos Mountains to Aphrodite Hills (20-25km from Paphos) and we never regretted we stopped in Platres Town for that. We were warmly welcomed by John and generously offered to taste his latest Flava chocolate creations while listening to his stories and description of the fillings... More

They chocolate was pure heaven and... More

On a very hot day I travelled to Platres for cooler air and decided to visit the Chocolate Workshop with a friend. We were the only 2 people there at the time and the display was quite tempting. The owner gave us a talk about his background and chocolate making. He was quite interesting except that all his talk of... More

Platres Chocolate Workshop is not what you might expect from a country like Cyprus, but owner John has made something very unique. The chocolates are a creation of unique flavours from around the island, with a story to tell about each variety. The flavours are not what you find in your average chocolate shop, with ingredients like royal jelly, local... More

We came across Platres Chocolate Workshop as we were searching for attractions to visit in Limassol. Located in a village that feels deserted, this small chocolate shop seems to be the last man standing, but is absolutely charming with its British owner and his passionate stories about chocolate and its origins. While you listen to him, you can't but keep... More
