This restaurant was a wonderful find and we have eaten there several times during our holiday. Andreas is a perfect host who cooks lovely authentic food at very reasonable prices. He obviously has a passion for cooking and is a charming and genuine man. Not to be missed.

Have eaten here on 3 occasions, hospitality, exemplary, food selection, quality of ingredients and presentation always consistently high. Leave the choice to Andreas, a very charming and welcoming host. He has a great affinity with the food he prepares, very enthused. Lovely and wide selection of mezes, dips and salads excellent, pitta bread & halloumi wonderful. Thank you again Andreas

Great that this restaurant has a listing as been dining here regularly during the past 18 months or so. Situated in Skarinou (take exit 13 off the Limassol/Larnaca highway towards Lefkara, go past Orphanides and McDonalds on your left, right at the junction and you will find Olive on your left). Andreas, the chef and his wife are a charming... More
