Great food, Friendly service - clear why it's no. 1

Visited Thanasis Place as we where staying in Kouklia. As it was first on Trip Advisor we expected it to be good, but in fact it was excellent. The food was a cut above the other places we ate in the village, but slightly more expensive, though not by much. Thanasis Place is not in the village... read more

This taverna is tucked away from the main square in Kouklia. Well worth a visit though, the stifado was excellent, as was the friendly welcome. We visit every time we are over in Cyprus and suggest you make a visit too !

I have visited this family restaurant many times and have always had a very friendly welcome and good food. On this occasion, I visited with friends who also brought parents. We were immediately served with a variety of dips and pitta "on the house" while we select5ed our main meals. All food was served as described and everyone enjoyed their... More

Booked Thanais Place on recomodation.

We visited this place a couple of times last year with our young family, the set menu was excellent value especially for 3 courses, the staff are very friendly and welcoming. The local dancers are amazing and good fun. Will certainly be back again this year

Lovely family atmosphere. Fresh moussaka and wonderfully soft and succulent beef stifado - a must have for anyone wanting to sample an excellent stifado. Good portion sizes and very reasonable prices. This was a return visit after we stumbled on them last year and they remembered us immediately! and the children even had complementary ice creams. One of the finest... More

This restaurant is a real gem, the food is fantastic, the atmosphere is great and you will be welcomed like one of the family by the lovely Sophia and her brother. The Kleftico and Stifado are both melt in the mouth dishes, and Sophia's deserts are wonderful. Don't miss the traditional music and dance night this is well worth experiencing.... More
