Excellent service, excellent food and worth every cent. Having read some of the negative reviews on other websites, I was a little wary, but one mouthful of the exquisite lightly fried chicken livers in a spicy sauce starter, won me and my gourmet friend over. If your idea of a good meal is correctly cooked, imaginative fayre washed down with... More

Visited here on our first night in Cyprus. Varied menu. Adults ate Cypriot dishes which were lovely. Children had a pizza and grilled chicken. Both enjoyed these and cleared their plates. Well worth a visit.

Lovely homemade food, very reasonably priced, very relaxed service - so don't go if you are in a hurry.

We had a great meal. We visited with our 2 young children, all other customers that evening were couples who appeared to be eating in silence when we turned up! We were made very welcome, the children in particular. The food was perfectly cooked, the owner clearly takes enormous pride in choosing good quality ingredients. One of the best meals... More

We had excellent food and service at Metaxas. My special diet (gluten-free) was recognized and food prepared accordingly. Sea food risotto, ravioli and moussaka were as good as you can hope. Food is served up to orders so this is not place for busy people. 15 % discount for orders placed between 17.30-19 (cash payment). I recommend!
