Proper Cypriot Souvla. There are so many average restaurants in Cypress but they have impressive decor or gimmicks. This place just does amazing flavour and they serve it fast. Friendly and cheap. 2 people completely stuffed ourselves for 32€. Grilled Haloumi cheese appetiser is delicious. You have to try the lamb. 3 massive pieces of succulent, juicy flavoursome lamb come... More

We tried this as it was recommended by a friend for the lamb. The taxi driver that took us there said its Greek food is lovely. We weren't disappointed. We turned up just after 7 and were asked if we had reservations. No we didn't but they squeezed us in. Within an hour the restaurant was packed. It may be... More

We go here every time we are in Cyprus. A little bot off the beaten track but lovely. The best things are the lamb leg or shoulder that they cook on the spit for hours so it is so tender. This year we tried the meze, not cheap at 20 euros each but worth every penny - loads of food,... More

My family loves Greek/Cypriot food and always look to visit a traditional Taverna on holiday. Our hotel rep highly recommended Limelight and we weren't disappointed. We ordered the Meze for family of 4 (2 adults & 2 children). I can honestly say it's some of the tastiest Greek food we've ever had. Including drinks the meal came to around €80... More

Have visited 3 times in the last 3 summers. Food has gradually got worse along with the service. Restaurant is invested with stray cats which is allowed by staff and makes it feel really un hygienic !

Paul and his wife run a superb restaurant serving traditional greek dishes but the whole experience is best enjoyed with a group of friends so you can order the leg of lamb of the spit. The whole leg is brought to the table and carved of the bone. A selection of vegetables and choice of potatoes all adds to the... More

Visited the limelight taverna, for the first time as highly recommended by the rep in our resort. Fantastic meal, we shared a leg of lamb, and it was cooked to perfection. Make sure you have a really light lunch, before going here, we were so full couldn't manage a desert, but the waiter brought us a free whiskey, coffee liqueur... More
