We had the full Meze here and although it was good we have had better when travelling around Cyprus. The staff were good, went to a lot of trouble to explain their menu and were very friendly. The restaurant seemed to lack atmosphere but the bar area seemed lively.

I'm not sure what he takes with his chocolate but we have booked for his return in December with our wider family! The food was excellent. We both started with grilled Haloumi. We both had... More

We have been to the Lounge a couple of times before, once for a snack and the other for a 21st birthday celebration where we ordered from the evening menu. This time we had we decided to try The Lounge Set Meze which was £22.50 per head with a minimum of 2 people. There were 3 of us but having... More

We stopped here for a quick coffee and catch up with a friend before our journey back home from Whitstable. It was clean,the staff (particularly Tiff Willis) were very friendly and helpful. We didn't eat, but the food on other tables looked really nice.

I had read great reviews about this place and we decided to go there last Friday, 16 May, for my brother-in-law's birthday weekend.

I was concerned, after I had emailed our food choices, when I received a call from a member of... More

After a 150 mile drive, I arrived at Tankerton Slopes in need of something to tide me over till lunch. A quick look at Trip Advisor showed that the highly-rated Lounge Restaurant was just over the road, so in I went.
