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

We visited Thanasis 2 times last year, for the company and the music. The food is good, but nothing special.

Great restaurant. Free wifi (hit with son 9), great food - personally had salad with 3 dips and kleftico lamb both of which were excellent. Would come again.

Thanasis Place is the Best restaurant in Kouklia according to Trip Advisor, and I have to agree. From the excellent bread and red pepper dip, to the good Cypriot wine, the Sheftarlia and of course the village salad, the food was just that bit better than in the other very good places to eat in Kouklia, but only by a...

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 square, but the... 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 !
