Amazing Meze

Really good service and food is fantastic, they were great at coping with our large party of 13. The meze was the best that we had, and it was really good for the chef to come out and talk to everyone.

Used this place twice on our holiday mainly due to laid back, un-rushed atmosphere and friendly service in an obviously family run rather more traditional affair. Obviously the food has to be nice too - which it was.

We wanted a traditional Greek Cypriot meal and had this place recommend by my sister who's been to protaras many times. We had the kleftiko and stifado. Both plentiful and extremely tasty. The service was excellent and the meal with a couple of bottles of wine was reasonably priced. I hate to admit when my sisters right but she was... More

The 1st meal we had was the beef stifado and my husband had a steak, both meals were excellent. The 2nd time we had the meat meze, parts of... More
