Yummy food

We have been eating here for years and it never disappoints. The leg of lamb for 2 is soooooo yummy and good value at 29 euros, we have never had a bad meal no matter what we have had. Friendly and yummy, highly recommended for anyone

I have been visiting Cyprus for many years and every time I come I eat here at least twice. The food is second to none. The lamb,steak, chicken, suckling pig are just to die for! The service is great and Paul and his wife are always there to greet you. I wish there was a limelight in Engalnd! Mind you... More

The title says it all really! We visit this amazing restaurant every year, me and my dad have just got back from a week in Ayia Napa and we visited limelight twice while we were there. It was lovely to be greeted by Paul yet again who we see year after year and for him to recognise us. There is... More

Fabulous restaurant tucked on a side street - so worth a visit as the food is fabulous and you can see it being cooked on the spit with the kitchen open to view. Huge plates. We visited several times during our fortnight and were never disappointed.

I write this review with a heavy heart as this restaurant has been a favourite of ours for over ten years ever since a local taxi driver from protaras took us there and we have visited two or three times a year since. We were so looking forward to our meal at limelight but when we arrived we were left... More

I ate here with my family and the quality of the food was excellent. Firstly you choose from a choice of potatoes so you can have any style of potatoes with any dish. The potatoes are fantastic in this part of the world. The quality of grilled food is very good. I shared the leg of lamb (for 2) and... More

After eating here about 5 years ago and experiencing our very first meze, we have never forgotten it! It was top of our list for visiting on this holiday and it was just as we remembered! We visited for a late lunch and were only the 2nd table eating. We couldn't quite eat a full meze so we're advised to... More
