Traditional meal in a lovely setting

Was lovely sat at the table under the canopy of flowers and was very traditional reminding me of early trips to Greece in the uncommercialised 1980s. Barely noticed any cats as previously mentioned and would highly recommend a visit

This restaurant has a truly lovely garden setting woth music but unfortunately there are too many cats here. There were 7 during our visit and unlike other restaurants where staff try to keep them away from tables these cats are not deterred and will wander around your legs under the tables as they are made to feel at home there....

This is my favourite place to eat in Pefkos, if you visit the resort, make sure you pay the place a visit. Garden style restaurant under the shade of plants. Excellent Greek menu, Beef Stifado was exceptional.

I cannot speak highly enough about this restaurant! Amazing local Greek food. We ended up visiting this restaurant 4 times on our holiday and were blown away each time. Service is also of the highest standard!

Visited two years ago as we remembered how good it was. The standard is still the same. Plenty of high quality local dishes on offer and we had the best bottle of wine here the whole trip. The service is very good. Make sure you have your anti Mossi spray on though as there's a lot of greenery around.

I would love to give this restaurant a glowing review as its one of the oldest restaurants in Pefkos and is very traditional with a lovely setting. However, the main issue here is the cats. In Greece its normal for one or two cats to pass through but here there are loads. It seems to be the meeting area for... More

We come here on each visit to Pefkos. This is just such a pretty taverna - you can sit inside or out - outside you are seated under a dense canopy of those beautiful pink flowers you see growing all over the island. Gorgeous! I'd recommend the Hummus (home made and comes with fresh baked pita) for starters and then... More

Went for an evening meal as a family and had swordfish, my husband had pork souvlaki and our 6 yr old daughter had spaghetti bolognese. A very enjoyable evening. If your not a lover of cats then stay clear as there are lots of them. Lovely waiters and our daughter was given a chocolate ice cream at the end of... More
