A seventy-something Andreas, his wife Alexandra, his daughter and grandson give an authentic family touch to this Cypriot taverna in Protaras. Andreas shops for fresh produce every morning.

Authentic Cypriot food, simpe but gorgeous, it's away from the... More

Limited menu, but food tasty and very reasonably priced. We were given a warm welcome when we arrived and bags of fruit when we left.

For the best grills and the best cypriot specialities , served without fuss in a warm and fiendly atmosphere, you cannot do better that Tsolia. Family run, all food cooked to order and Kleftiko and Tavvas to die for.

This is a small family run restaurant and the food is excellent. The owner, who is also the chef, hilights the specials and even though the menu is not that big, the freshness and the quality of the food is outstanding.

The local Cyprus food is fantastic & they do a pork chop that is massive. You will always get some free... More
