Nice setting, very good service and on the whole very good food, didn't really enjoy the ravioli but there was certainly nothing wrong with it. Guess it just didn't taste like my mum's. Very nice moussaka though, would definitely return.

Thursdays are definitely the best day to visit this tavern! Set in a beautiful town square with little local bars and shops. Thursday is traditional cyprus night with music and dancing! Very interesting, but I'd recommend you book! Maria is very friendly and welcoming, with a wide range of food to choose from. We had the buffet which was beautiful!... More

We stumbled upon this village and then had the good fortune to find this excellent taverna - a limited menu but the quality of the food was excellent - service was really friendly and the atmosphere was perfect - we returned for dinner on several occasions - really memorable.

The place to enjoy an authentic dinner. We have been here now a couple of times. When the sun sets the village squares transforms into something out of a film set. Great ambiance. Maria, the owner is there to make you feel welcome. Always there to recommend you what to eat. The cyprus evenings are fun. We always love their... More

Party of seven. Each plate came out separately. After a 3/4 hr wait. The fish dish was covered in lemon juice and tasted as if it was off but they had tried to covered the taste up. My meal never even arrived. Bad service followed by poor excuses. Wouldn't go back even if I was starving and this was the... More

We ate a meze during Cyprus night (Thursdays). First piece of advice:BOOK! They are very busy on Thursdays and several groups were turned away. Meze was pleasant, not the best we'd had in Cyprus but the staff are wonderful, really friendly, attentive, welcoming. The dishes were also not too large, it was like a mini-meze really. They threw in a... More

Maria, who runs this restaurant, is incredibly friendly. However, only one vegetarian option on the menu which sounded very unpleasant - fried aubergine with a swirl of mayonnaise on it with rice,and the meat dishes we ordered were very average quality. Disappointed to say we wouldn't visit here again.

For several years this restaurant has been a "must visit" for my family traveling to Cyprus every year. It's a very good opportunity for dining out if you are staying somewhere nearby. High quality traditional food, nice location and outstanding hospitality of the personnel can really make your dinner the one to remember. Maria, the hostess, is a good part... More
