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

Dry.bland food & average service on the night we visited.We did arrive around 10 so that may have been a reason but there`s far better places to eat in Ayia Napa. Everything written about the cats is correct & i wouldn`t bother again.

This is a must visit. Grills are excellent. A word af warning make sure you go on a very empty stomach as the portions are huge. Lovely family run business and great food and service

No worries when you visit Limelight that you will not eat enough or that you cannot taste whatever else is on the table! This place serves double portions of everything and is probably the best grill house I have visited in the area! Great huge roasts including lamb, duck and other meats accompanied with excellent potatoes and salads. Not for... More
