Wanted to experience the rustic traditional food Cyprus has to offer. I found this and more with this restaurant and went back 4 more times in the 1 week I spent in Cyprus. Loved it and cant wait to go back!

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

Fantastic place to eat delicious Mediterranean food - the restaurant has a great terrace and views of the nearby Church of St. Lazarus are breathtaking. This traditional taverna has flair and is authentic in atmosphere compared to other restaurants on the nearby commercial seafront and harbour. My wife and I were a part of a group of 12 people that... More

Found this whilst sipping some wine in the cafe opposite, great location, great ambience on the roof terrace, not too cold even in November. But, the food was a bit of a let down. Quite expensive too. Much better places to eat.

We wanted to visit a Taverna and found this place around the corner of our apartment. We were excited to see the Trip Advisor Recommendation award for 2012 displayed with pride. We chose our own seating that looked out to the church lit up which was stunning. The view is great if you choose the right side to sit. We... More

From the view of the old church to the lovely Cypriot food, you cannot go wrong with this rooftop open air restaurant. I had the Stifado and it was fantastic, very tasty and filling. My wife ate the Kleftiko, which was also brilliant. Staff were very friendly and prices reasonable. Enjoy!!!!

Taratsa is well know for the Church View and the terrace seating area and that's what got us excited about it when we saw it! We checked out the Menu in the Board and that made us happier! the food was real nice...the Salad, Pasta, Butter-Garlic Mushrooms (the best item we had) and the Grilled Octopus! all of them tasted...

We were tempted to try out this restaurant for the views and invitation to climb the stairs. There was no atmosphere and it was uncomfortably quiet but decided to check out the menu anyway. All looked ok until we asked whether the portion of vine leaves for 12 euros would be sufficient for two chilldren and was told that there... More

The location was stunning, the service was fair but disappointing that we had to wait 15 mins to pay the bill. No one wants to wait to pay and we offered dessert. The food was adequate but not amazing. After hearing such great things we left disappointed which was a shame as we had been looking forward to the dinner
