Magnificant restaurant!!!!!!!!!

As always excellent. Everything made by the owners, bread to die for served warm. Halloumi made only with goats cheese that you will not find anywhere else on the island. Tip, you can order halloumi and take back with you . They can pack in vac packs. I ordered 5kg and brought back to the UK... read more

We had wanted to book this place from the beginning of our holiday, we had heard lots and lots about the quality of the food, it is in the town of Sotira and is a beautiful authentic Cypriot restaurant which is ever so slightly sunken, the atmosphere is great with everyone thoroughly enjoying themselves, the male staff I have to...

Went on a recommendation. Ordered meze for two. Decent variety but far, far too much food. So when the proper meat arrived we were already full. Some meat was well overcooked and dried out. Maybe worth another try but will select single dishes next time.

We were lucky they had a spare table for 4 . You need to reserve a table. Food ,atmosphere, setting and service were very good. We had a mini meze , enjoyed but did find that the chicken was a little on the dry side. But other wise extremely tasty. And so much of it. I dread to think what... More

We stayed in Ayia Napa and got a taxi to Sotira village for this meal as reviews were so good. Restaurant is stunning, greek and has a great atmosphere. Live music some nights though we didn't see this. If you visit, be sure to order the baked (not grilled) Halloumi (ask for a half, it's a pretty big slab!).. It's... More

The best food that we've had in our holiday in Ayia Napa. The service was excelent, the staff was verry friendly and the prices are fare. It's a must if you are nearby. P.S. you have to try the homemade halloumi. It's different from the ones you will find on a normal restaurant.

If you want a true taste of Cyprus then this is the place to visit, but advise Thursday, Friday saturday to book. You would nearly drive by before you notice it. It is wonderful inside the staff pleasant and obliging. The menu choice isn't huge but what there is,,is of a high standard and served well and plenty of it.... More

We went with friends after they have recommended the place to us. I must say that the tavern has high standards and the service is very good. Be sure to book before you visit.
