He puts on your hands rosewater and with a bright smile shows you. to your seat. Then you have to order what you like... More

I have been to this restaurant numerous times with friends. It's the best mezze I've had in Cyprus. Staff are friendly and helpful. We were really lucky going one night in summer and lucked into a half price special on drinks so it was a really inexpensive night. The only dish I wouldn't try was the snails! I don't like... More

Good food but not my kind of atmosphere. I think the are trying to create that "traditional" look but it seems a bit "cheap" in side..

Food is good, though expensive compared to other reputable mezze places. The place is packed with small groups 8 to 12 diners, very noisy Thursdays, Fri and Sat nights. A bit uncomfortable seating and ok service. Perhaps a good place if you are in the old city, but not worth the trip if you go there specifically to eat there.... More

This lovely restaurant was recommending by our Segway Tour Guide, as we stipulated that we wanted traditional Cypriot food, not tourist restaurant. Oh boy did this place deliver. There is no menu as they only serve Meze. The Staff are just lovely, making you feel so welcome. The food was just amazing, dish after delicious dish just kept coming. It... More

Friendly staff, good quality food and endless quantities. One of its major advantages is that it is open till late when most of the other restaurants are closed. Very popular among VIPs. If you are in the old city it worths a try. When you are there try "mezedes"... But better be very hungry
