The food was superb, and the family-run restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere. We ate here twice and loved the food here! It's perfect for a romantic night out, a date, or if you want to spoil yourself with good food and wine. Highly recommended!!

With all the bright lights, noise and booze fuelled revelling of Ayia Napa the Limelight Taverna provides a pleasant and much needed break back to what traditional Greek cuisine is meant to be. The meats are cooked from early afternoon on a slow open charcoal fire in the traditional style. By the time the evening has come the meat really... More

I've been to Cyprus at least 10 times and Lime Light Tavern serves the best Cypriot/Greek BBQ that I have tasted. The food is simply yummy, the portions are huge and there's no way you can finish up your dish. The atmosphere is traditional Cypriot which gives an all better overall mood. Highly recommended when in Ayia Napa.

Yet again the Limelight impresses. We had a mixed grill and the local sausages. Could eat it all but the quality is great. We have been going for 7 years after being recommended by local.
