Among interior that looks as if it hasn't changed since the opening 70-some years ago you get to taste the essence of Cyprian cuisine. Yes the portions are hige and uneatable unless you're an elephant but if you decide to go there you should know what you are up for. Totally remarkable place - if I am ever back to... More

The owner is very friendly, they have a nice selection of wines and you have to be starved to death in order to eat all the great food they serve.

There is no menu and they just keep bringing the food. It was copious and absolutely delicious! The restaurant has been around for 72 years and it is filled with character. It was one of our best meals in Cyprus. Definitely a redo and definitely recommened.

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
