Loved this little place! We had a mini presentation from the owner - funny and interesting- although we didn't schedule one in advance. The staff was very helpful and friendly.The place could use a nicer decoration to look more like a chocolaterie. The chocolates come in a golden box of 12 for €20 euros. The taste...simply amazing! Thumbs up!

This was my first time in Cyprus. When i heard there was a chocolate factory in the mountains, it had conjured so many childhood fantasies that I felt it was necessary to go and explore. Once I arrived, the reality was quite unlike anything I had imagined. Not so much a factory, more of a corner shop. I'm quite open... More

The correct address is 1 Olympiou Street, Plano Platres. Limassol is the general area of the country in which Pano Platres is located.A visit to the workshop is an absolute worthwhile experience if you have the opportunity to meet and talk with Master John. Master John is a fixture in Pano Platres, and he toured the village with us, stopping... More

chocolate was great, and nicely presented however in my opinion not on level of Belgian or even Spanish chocolate shops / the price was the same though.. when in Platres however there is little to do so spending 5 to 10 euros to indulge a bit will not break the bank after all

Called in to this shop whilst passing through the village. I can vouch for the chocolate as handmade and mouth-wateringly good! The owners had such enthusiasm and made time for us discussing how it made and the history of the shop. Please call in if your passing through the village and try some of john chocolate and hear some of... More

Run by a british - british/cypriot couple and a lovely assistant, this place is something unique. The owner spends time to explain the when, whys and what and are very knowledgeable about chocolate. The chocolates they make and sell have the Cyprus touch. Very unique I would say, globally. Thinking of taking kids back for the workshop. Place is very... More

Overpriced chocolates, poor quality. You can find much better quality and way too cheaper chocolates all over the island, and truly I cannot understand how come this particular workshop is highlighted as a sightseeing attraction. I was here along with a group lately. There is NOTHING special with the chocolates really….. Only lots of bla bla bla. With all this... More

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
