I think I counted 35 meze courses plus a range of desserts and fresh fruit, plus three different kinds of free drinks. To finish make your own Cyprus coffee in a hot sandpit. Live zgreek music, locals dancing and a full night of great entertainment for a low price thanks to the people at Shema Villa Bed and Breakfast who... More

Very friendly and warm environment. They treat you with zivania, koumandaria, masticha, peanuts and pourekia. Amazing food including a deserts buffet plus coffee and tea all included in the price. Nice music and good prices. It is worth a visit.

The food was plenty and unique. The service was very fast and friendly. They were treating us with free shots 3-4 times, peanuts and sweets. The music and atmosphere were very warm. Definitely going back. Logical prices.

Exactly what you might expect - masses of food dumped unceremoniously on the table. It is quantity not quality that rules - they only serve Meze and it is cheap. Dish after dish appears and if you haven't finished, tough - the next platter is plopped onto the one before. We ended up surrounded by dozens of semi congealed, half... More

This place was recommended to us by Andreas, owner of the nearby Nest, where we were staying. He wisely advised us to order Mezze for 3 even though there were 5 of us - and we were still bursting at the seams by the end of our amazing meal. We started with traditional shots on the house - two different... More

This is a great place to experience authentic Cypriot food, they serve meze. The quality is fantastic and OMG there is a lot of food so be hungry. I advise you let the waiter know you prefer the food comes out slowly or the bring it very quickly. They have live music on the weekend. Parking is no problem.
