Having only visited the Halfway House during the day, we were invited to join most of a local village's residents to enjoy a Kleftiko evening in September, it was absolutely delicious with freshly made salads and roast potatoes with a selection of homemade UK desserts including sherry trifle or vanilla slices (if there was room of course). Highly recommended.

We have been coming to Cyprus now constantly for the last 12 years after I first came here around 17 years ago... we have visited the Halfway House Cafe on every visit to Cyprus and have become good friends with Jack and his family who run the cafe. We had lunch there on Sunday, 18th October and thoroughly enjoyed the... More

we stopped at this taverna for a light lunch last year on the recommendation of some friends who live in Cyprus. It's a lovely setting, just across the road from the sea, looking very traditional from the front with the vine covered terrace. This year we went back for a bigger lunch on the day that we were travelling home.... More

Pita kebap and kebap plate (i hope i remember right). The difference here seamed only to be bread and chips. But kebap plate costs 12€ and pita... More

What a change since our last visit in 2011. The new interior restaurant is amazing great for parties and family events. Yet it is still keeping its Traditional Cypriot charm. Been visiting the Halfway house with family since 2000. Lots has changed for both our families over the years sadly Gladys is no longer there to make her fantastic salads... More

We have eaten here now many times. It continues to excel. Vaz and Julie always appear un-flustered and give all the attention and time you need even when very busy. They always ask if certain herbs or ingredients they may be using in your meal are o.k with you. Fantastic value for quality flavoursome food. The wine list is also... More
