Great Meze in lovely courtyard

A rare case of a Cypriot Village Taverna with aesthetic as well as culinary appeal. Sitting in the courtyard amid trees, plants and vines really adds to the experience. Excellent Meze served efficiently. Tends to be very busy (a shame) but with locals rather than tourists (a good sign). Need to... read more

It was a tasty dinner with many typical Cypriot dishes. The meat was grilled to perfection and the salads were a good starter. Go to this place when you are hungry because the meze dinner is a lot of food! Reservation is a good idea as it gets busy.

We booked a table for 12 people one week earlier. Also confirmed the reservation one the same day. We asked specific Table because of small kids. Celebrating birthdays. The table place was not what we asked for. Was in shape Γ . The managers response was silence!!! Was so funny . Never again!!!!

The best. My favourite restaurant of the week. The understanding of a proper cypriot Meze. A plate full of raw, beautifully fresh vegetables arrive at the table. Not cut up, in silly bit size piece, not crudities just great produce sitting on a plate that you can cut or bite, eat whole, your choice. Deep green 12 inch spears of... More

I visited this lovely restaurant with my wife and son. The food was very tasty and well prepared, however, with a Meze you really need to be more than 3 persons to enjoy it in full. that being said, all was excellent and well prepared, a lot of pork, chicken and cheese and plenty of salad, all being served with...

An unexpected delight on a business trip. This restaurant was out of the way and I would not have found it on my own. The real Cypriot mezé experience, round after round of wonderful dishes. The restaurant was full of local families, usually my barometer of great food. I was not disappointed!

We dined here last week, thanks to our son who lives near Limassol. The food was delicious, and the dishes came one after the other, each tasty and emitting the local food traditions. The owner is very hospitable and so are the staff members. Al in all, after drinking 2 white wine bottles (4 adults), the meal price was very... More
