Brilliant food

Brilliant food and atmosphere, we had a Meze from here and it was one of the best meals of our holiday and I would definitely recommend a visit here if you go to Cypris! At the weekends you will need to book in advance as they have live music which again is excellent and gives you a taste of the... read more

This is complete must if you appreciate your food ,the live entertainment is an added bonus but brilliant. The owner Thanasis himself sang whilst we were there along a great band and traditional dancers. A few nights later we went back to the same village but tried another Taverna however was left wishing we had gone back to Thanasis. Great... More

We were recommended this place by a member of staff at our hotel Cypria Maris. It's right in the middle of a little village Kouklia. The wine was lovely to start with from a local winery (You can buy it from across the road at their shop). We ordered the meze and the food just kept on coming! We had... More

Food and service are constenly excellent, year after year. There has been a huge change from 2014 to 2015 which is great to see as the island and this business appears to be thriving following the dreadful banking 'crisis' that hit Cyprus in 2013. The staff are always happy and polite and take the time to chat with you. Menu... More

Almost every taverna serves a meze - it's a Cypriot national dish - but so few get it spot-on. Thanasis Taverna has got it to perfection...they really serve the ultimate meze! It's 5 years since we last visited the taverna and the improvement over time is outstanding. The meal couldn't be faulted in any way. The food was traditional with... More

We first visited Thanasis Place on the 25/5/06 which was the date my husband proposed to me at Aphrodite's Rock! After the proposal (and my acceptance!), we wanted to find somewhere nice to have lunch. We followed the road into Kouklia and found the most delightful village that has a lovely little square surrounded by traditional taverns. We chose Thanasis... More

Went as part of a group booking 60 plus. The meal was a BBQ self service and the food was cooked to perfection and eat as much as you wanted. For such a large group the sevice was first class and staff friendly. Drinks orders were actioned straight away. Impressed and will certainly return.

Great little restaurant in the little village of Kouklia, me and my fiance rented a lovely quad from the village square and went for lunch here. The roasted red pepper dip was to die for and the lamb was lovely. However the T Bone steak was more like half a T bone with the fillet almost none existent. Lovely though... More
