We visited this restaurant last week, the food was excellent, the service good, and was by far the best meal of the week, over the years we have covered many restaurants in protaras, this is one of the best, not to be missed! Great traditional food, enormous portions!

Nikolas's expertise and his clay ovens... More

Have to take my hat off to the chef. He met us at the door and promised the best Greek cypriot food about and he was good to his word. Best I've ever had. little bit more expensive than other places around but most definitely worth it.
