We have had a couple of drinks here in the past but this year we had a meal and we were not disappointed. Fresh Sea Bream cooked to perfection with lovely Greek oven potatoes and Viv had pork with spinach and mustard sauce which was a bit different but all good. Food is cooked to order by Mrs Nikos.

Slightly disappointed by Captain Nikos, although we may have ordered the wrong food as it was quite busy and everyone seemed to enjoy it. Typical Greek menu. We had creamy mushrooms and baked feta for starters and both strangely had been seasoned with mint - not the greatest flavour combination! My friend had a four cheese pasta for her main... More

Visited several times during our 2 weeks in Troulos. Nikos' food is excellent and I can recommend anything you eat there. The stamna is outstanding. He is a character and it is easy to get to know him if you go in at less busy times. Very accommodating, produced a breakfast for us at 8:55 when he doesn't open till... More

A typical Greek Taverna serving traditional food. We come on holiday to sample the local food and we weren't let down. I had the mixed Greek meal and it was a nice way to enjoy a few Greek dishes in one. Thoroughly enjoyed it and you weren't short changed on the portions. All the meals were reasonably priced too.

Returned again after great service last year and the food is still the best and most traditional we had on the island. The atmosphere had changed a little from last year and lost some of it's fun (possibly due to other feedback?) but for me it is still my preferred restaurant and bar on the island and we visited several...

We loved this restaurant, real home Greek cooking. Nikos is very warm and friendly creating a brilliant atmosphere, making everyone feel very welcomed. The food is excellent and good value for money.

We were given a shot of ouzo to start and then both ordered garlic bread and tsatziki the garlic bread was actually a large breadbun toasted and smothered with garlic butter... More

Food was tasty and the wine was cold. Welcomed with watery ouzo and had several appetizers and a salad. We were asked if we're vegetarian as we hadn't ordered anything with meat in it, seemed a strange thing to be asked as we hadn't had our order questioned in any other restaurant, but we just weren't that hungry after a...
