The setting great.....very traditional and nowadays pretty hard to find in Larnaca but the food a big disappointment. Yes it was Saturday night and busy but no excuse for poor food.........over cooked and far too salty. The starters were the same as you get anywhere and it was an hour before we were brought anything at all so by this... More

We decided to go here after a recommendation, we were advised to order only 2 meze as the portions were big. There were 3 of us dining. Firstly let me say that the staff were friendly and welcoming, the setting was lovely, a beautiful little courtyard. Then we get to the food, it was merely average. The portion size was... More

As a cypriot I find their meze very average, it's a lovely setting but the food is not what I would call a "traditional cyprus meze". There are dishes I didn't recognise which I thought was quite odd.

Love this place. The moment you walk in to the beautiful court yard of this old Greek house you feel like your really in a Greek taverna. Food is great and not expensive.

Mezedhes is a big variety of local delicious scrumptious yummy dishes rolling slowly to your table so you will savor it for hours and Voreas prepare it marvelously, an old village house settings with live music on weekends. You have to visit or you will miss a lot, hope you will enjoy...

Taken here by a local. Not the easiest to find but worth it. Lovely court yard restaurant. Huge mezze, which was fantastic. Served at a nice pace. All food was lovely. Only complaint I wanted more but couldn't eat more.

This is a tough review. I would love to give this place a 5 star rating for the following reasons, excellent setting (traditional Cypriot), good menu, service was good, prices were right, but food was overcooked. I came to understand this is a local norm which I did not appreciate at all. This is definitely a place to try out,... More

Sorry to be a party pooper.... but I just don't get all these rave reviews about the "wonderful" meze here. Yes, it is an extremely beautiful setting in an ancient courtyard, and yes, there are loads of courses... but most of them you cannot eat! The meat was all cheap cuts and fatty, overcooked and very chewy. Even the bread... More
