This friendly restaurant is situated on the main road from Polis to Argaka, it is set back from the road and the clientele sit under a massive grapevine which helps cool diners! The portions are very generous, the food very fresh, well cooked and beautifully presented. The desserts are delicious!

Everything about this local restaurant is charming. The Anglo-Cypriot hosts are genuinely welcoming. The terrace under the vines is relaxed and cool. The food freshly made and the kebabs the best we've tasted anywhere (and in Cyprus we've eaten a lot of kebabs). As testimony to its wide appeal, the restaurant is almost the only venue in the area that... More

Fantastic local restaurant, great food and a warm welcome from Vass and Julie. We all thoroughly enjoyed our visits and it's a great alternative to Polis town if you're staying in Argaka. Obligatory grape photo follows...

If you want to experience real hospitality then the Halfway House is for you. Vaz and Julie are warm and welcoming to all their customers - they took extra special care of our daughter who is coeliac - even wiling to adapt their calamari with corn flour - The food is fresh and delicious - I had the privilege of...

We first visited Halfway House 10 years ago when it was a hut, and BBQ, so when we tried to find it 10 years on, we drove past it a couple of times. Wow, how it has changed in appearance. But thankfully, that is all. The warm welcome was genuine, the food as amazing as ever, 'Jacks World Famous Pork... More
