We were looking for a taverna that was open in the evenings because in Winter in Cyprus, the choice is very limited as owners take advantage of the quiet time to go on holiday and take a rest. We wandered around Pissouri and found this place open so decided to have lunch to "test it out" as we hadn't been... More

I asked for a vegetable curry, the only one that was in it was frozen peppers. The meal was cold and like a starter portion. The staff waited until my husband had finished his meal (not brilliant either) and cleared his plate away, then apologised to me and asked me if I wanted some chips!!!

Called in here for early evening supper on a coldish October day. Very windy outside so we moved inside as the place was empty with only one other table, and staff were very accommodating. Food was well presented and came with salad garnish and chips. We chose grill items and having lived on the island for over ten years, had... More

As the Platea is now one of only 2 tavernas on the square my family and I have tried our best not to expect high standards - there's just not enough competition. We have now decided that this is our last visit. Portion size was incredibly small. A lamb shank was eaten in 3 mouthfuls by one of our children... More

He must make at least €15 .chicken legs! fatty, swimming in grease Afelia. Sit in the square for a drink. Buy a crepe much better value. No vegetarian dishes on offer. Stay away until proper quality... More

We booked here for the greek dancing and asked for a table inside. When we arrived they didnt have any tables and denied us even booking even though it was the same man who took our reservation. They eventually found us a table outside so far from the dancing that you couldnt see at all. The meze was awful very... More

Made the reservation two days before for the sole reason of the entertainment on Cyprus night but wasnt told about it being buffet. Only when we sat down (with four kids under ten) we were told it was buffet. I don't like buffets- at the best of times but was there for the entertainment. They agreed to charge for only... More
