I had grilled octapus which was delicious. I had a freshly cut salad. The wine was perfect and the service was excellent. I would recommend it even though it was not busy:-)

On our first evening at Larnaca, we were looking for a good restaurant to dine in. Fortunately we passed near Portokali and decided to walk in. Andreas, the owner welcomed us very politely and seated us near the fireplace. The environment was perfect and the food was even better. We've ordered the Fish Meze, the starters were delicious and the... More

We arrived in Larnaca very late and after some snafus with our hotel, we were not certain we would even find a restaurant open. Interestingly, all of the restaurants were empty, so we were not certain if they were open or not. As we walked along the shore, we came upon Portokali after surveying the menu of other places. Trying... More

We visited this resturant yesterday. It was à great disappointment. I ordered beef casserole and my wife deep fried scampi. The owner said that scampi is fresh, but I know ithey came out of deep freeze. When you deep Fry frozen stuff, water gets trappen in the food, and that's what it was. THE beef casserole was at least 3... More

This restaurant is new to the area although the owner is not new to Larnaca. Both the food and service were excellent. As a party of four we had a meza and it was one of the best I've had for a long time. Our guests were local residents and even they commented on the high standards of food, services... More

The food is excellent, the service amazing, the prices reasonable, and it must have the most spotlessly clean kitchen in town. A lovely menu selection and this restaurant offers genuine Cypriot cooking at its best. All made on the premises. None of the pre-packaged, pre-cooked mass produced cr*p so many restaurants buy in. Location is great and the views are... More
