Unique restaurant located near the historic Orthodox Church of Panagias Euangelistrias close to the mainly long path of Pallouriotissas. The menu is well known for its traditional Cypriot cuisine and the authentic regional courses inspired from the purity and the freshness of a daily food markets. With the quality of service, the smooth sound of music and the fireplace, we have created a comfy and peaceful atmosphere for those who want to experience the truthfulness and those who want to escape from the routine.

The food is good and there's a nice variety of meat and side dishes. The downside is that the price of 18 Euros for meze is quite expensive and not at all justified, taking in mind that the dishes served were pretty much standard found in most taverns on the island with less than 15Euros. In general, a bit overrated... More

We were invited by family to experience good old fashioned Cypriot cooking and hospitality. It seems that Cypriots eat a lot as our plates were very full!! AND really very good indeed! We just ate souvlaki but it was more than filling and very fresh meat.

We visited Louis Taven on a working day with some friends after we've read all the good reviews online. The place was empty and was nobody else there except us.

We went midweek, mid August. Nobody there except us. I wouldn't say it's the perfect place for a romantic date (we were positioned in what amounted to a driveway, with a view of the road one side and our car the other) but nevertheless it was a lovely meal and we were looked after, even though the cars were swishing...
