Hokkaido is the number one restaurant experience in Cyprus. Based in the heart of Ayia Napa this is a culinary show not to be missed. You will see knives hurled into the air, fresh vegetables, seafood and meat cooked masterfully in front of you, fires lit, and if you mention that you have your birthday you will be the centre of attention. All you need is your holiday mood and you will sit in tables with people from all over the world who want to try Japanese cuisine in a lively atmosphere. This restaurant is well established since 1999, and very famous in the island for having the whole package: good food, electric atmosphere, impeccable service and reasonable prices.Fun for all the family!!

Best Restaurant In Ayia Napa, Amazing fun and food

Two word's describes this restaurant - ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC. I have visited countless restaurants at home and abroad and am not exaggerating when I say this is the best so far. We were a party of six and you are seated at tables in a square shape that seat around 20 people, there is plenty of... read more

I visited Hokkaido with a friend, Kevin P, in late April. Kevin wrote an honest review, dated 25th April, which detailed the very poor experience we had. The owner/manager in response outrageously claimed that he had not been at the restaurant, with Kevin having no ability on Tripadvisor to respond to this. I can confirm that we were both at... More

Mr EdesioJnr you both spend time to comment about your experience in TripAdvisor but didn’t bother to do so at the restaurant. What troubles me about this is trip advisor’s inability to filter fake reviews. More

We were all inclusive but i insisted we visit this restaurant as it is a novelty that you will remember as a big part of your holiday. The chefs cook your food in front of you as you side around the grill. I had the teriyaki sirloin steak and it was absolutely delicious. They serve you sauté potatoes and vegetable... More

Hokkaido was recommended to us by a couple of locals as being one of the best restaurants in the area, and a great overall experience. What a disappointment! A fun atmosphere but the food was generally very poor. We are huge fans of Japanese food, which we have eaten around the world including in Japan. The sushi platter was fine... More

Mr "Kevin P" I believe you have never been to our restaurant, becouse if you had you would complaint about your bad experience so we have the chance to do something about it. A paying costumer would do so. More

With out a doubt this is one on e the best restaurant's I've eating in for a long time and certainly the best in Cyprus. The choice on the menu and service was fab and the theatre cooking was not to be missed. I will recommend this place to all my friends that visit this great Island

Booked a table based upon others recommendations. Family of four. The atmosphere was great and the chefs were very entertaining. The food was incredibly bland and came staggered. They cook your vegetables, lengthy pause then your rice, lengthy pause, then your meat.....you get the picture. The meat was cooked without any sort of spices or sauce, very, very bland. Same...

I had received so many personal recommendations to visit this restaurant from so many people that consider this to be their favourite restaurant in Cyprus that I was expecting phenomenal food.

Food is cooked on a hot-plate in front of you, and the chefs are really entertaining as they cook. Food was excellent in flavour, quantity and quality. I highly recommend this restaurant - I will certainly return for both business and pleasure. Prices were reasonable for the food and venue

Have eaten here a few times now and I love it! They put on a brilliant show whilst cooking your delicious meal. My 3 year old daughter enjoys it too. Very child friendly. Can't wait for my next visit!
