Cypriot tradition at its best!

This restaurant offers traditional cypriot food. Granted. But altough this food might meet the expectations of most or many tourists, that does not hold true for most Cypriots. Trying to impress the customer with fanciful platters sometimes distracts and leads to mediocracy. The halloumi is very good. The meat platters barely acceptable.

Lofou village is truly amazing and you need a few hours to explore its narrow streets, designed for donkeys, its architecture, fantastic views and fresh cool air. After that, the hospitality, welcome and outstanding food and drink at the Lofou Taverna is essential to complete your visit. This is traditional Cyprus, the building, the fresh food which is grown by... More

I went with 5 other people to this restaurant. 3 had been before and recommended it. We were welcomed and offered a choice of tables as it wasn't busy on this Wednesday. The menu was traditional Cypriot Taverna fare. Two had Lofou Trout, one had fish and chips, one had Pork Diane and two of us had the Moussaka. The... More

We always take friends, family and visitors to the Lofou traditional agrotourism taverna whenever we can. Tonight as always the meze provided for a party of 6 adults was locally sourced, freshly cooked in full view of us all and was both original and plentiful. It is a wonderfully traditional facility run by Costas Violaris and his family with occasional... More

After a day of beach and BFBS radio (dull enough to drive you insane) it was a short walk from our hotel to Lofou Tavern. We chose this place as the one out of the 3 in Lofou that seemed to have most life. This, our second visit in a week was even better. A lovely greeting by the owner... More

The taverna is family run and we were fortunate that their son had just returned home from two years working in Britain. He was bursting with enthusiasm and was a wonderful host. The food was typical Cypriot fare, delicious and oversized portions and the local wine was very impressive. We had a very relaxed and enjoyable evening and left with... More

This traditional family run Taverna tucked away in the beautiful village of Lofou is definitely worth visiting. We always come here on our visits to Cyprus and it never disappoints. On this visit we had the Meze and every dish was delightful. Costas the owner understands flavours. The building is charming, the welcome is always very warm and Costas regularly... More
