It was accompanied by salad and freshly prepared and cooked Cyprus chips. The grill consisted of lamb chop, Pork chop, Pork souvlaki, Village sausage... read more

An amazingly traditional, attentive, friendly and family-run Greek Taverna, offering superb menu variety for all (including Vegetarian). Our first of several visits provided live Greek Bazouki entertainment and engaging chat with the proprietors, who were fully attentive to our requirements. Greek Village Salad, Mousaka, Beef Stifado and Sword Fish dishes are simply sublime and highly recommended, supported by a wide... More

We were looking for an authentic Cypriot restaurant for the first meal out of our holiday. Ifalos didn't disappoint. We started with fried calamari and octopus as well as pitta bread, then went on to have a mixed grill, souvlaki and sheftalies and village salad for the grown ups with fish and chips and chicken nuggets and chips for the...

This restaurant is in Penera, not Protoras, which is why too many of you have missed it. Since the last time I posted a review it has changed hands, had a refurbishment but easily retained all of the merits I previously described. Now fronted by one of the friendliest hosts you'll find in the area. Used by knowing tourists and... More

Great meze dips. Portions were big. I had keftedakia which was on the dry side. My sister got the chicken cream which was nice but very much thick and creamy. My mom had the sea bream which lacked flavor and could have used a squirt of lemon and salt. My dad ate the lamb and roasted potatoes which was excellent... More

We went as a couple, but this smallish family run restaurant caters for everyone. Families are welcomed as are couples, foursomes and all. Went a couple of times last year and were immediately recognised when we turned up this year. Good value and excellent food. Give it a try.

A very nice traditional restaurant with a good selection of local food. Very popular with locals. Severely let down by my meal arriving before my wine.

We went here as it looked like a tradtional greek taverna. Wine was served in flaky metal carafes and was absolutely awful. We had one of white and one of red both bad but the red was shockingly bad. Think paintstripper with food dye. The food was also fairly bad. The service wasn't to bad but the waiter did this... More

Would fully recommend Ifalos as the place to eat in Protaras and the surrounding area. I can personally state that the Afelia is the best I have had for 20 years. The free Wi-Fi works wel too!
