“Good food at good prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

I have eaten here regularly and the standards are constantly good. Nothing out of this world, but a very good meal at non extortionate prices, which in itself is now rare to find in Cyprus!

“Nice traditional food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Nice and not very expensive traditional restaurant. If you visit that place you must try kleftiko- traditional cyprus lamb. Lovely.

“A decent Cypriot restaurant.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

I have been here a couple of times. Food is average-good but no surprises, though you never get that 'extra' in flavours to consider it special. It is a descent restaurant with simple food in low price. You leave the place satisfied and you may return back but really is not something to be wowed with like other places with traditional Cypriot food on the island. We were there yesterday for lunch, gets packed with people on Sundays and weekends in general. I had beef klieg tiki which was good and potatoes really tasty. Although food was served quickly , the service after that was really slow. We had to ask two - three times for the bill and finally had to stand and go to pay at the cashier! Also, serving is quite funny as the waiters should keep some proper manners like placing the drinks into a tray to serve! I saw a waiter carrying the plastic 8-pack package of soft drinks in front of a table and serving people directly from the nylon bag!!!! This was ridiculous to see. It doesn't mean because is a traditional restaurant they should handle everything in a cheap way.
All in all I recommend it for simple food, nothing elaborated but you leave the place satisfied after trying oven cooked dishes. Definitely not feeling strong about it though. Maybe is the 'easy' solution for a Larnaca place-to-it as the city itself lacks traditional restaurants/taverns.

“Amazing Cyprus food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

I always come here when I am back in Cyprus.

Food is wonderful and traditionally cooked on the charcoals and the Cypriot wood ovens which you can see them there cooking. Prices are very reasonable and the portions are huge!!!

It is the best place to be if you are looking for local food in Larnaca or even in whole Cyprus!!!

The staff are genuinely friendly, most of them are 'old age lads' with a great sense of humor, not the usual 'robots' with the fake smile you usually find in other restaurants.

I will certainly be back and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who would like to have a nice Cyprus meal/experience at a very reasonable price. Even if you are a 'high-class' restaurant type with the gourmet things then I would still suggest this restaurant just to show that you can get excellent food at down to earth prices!

“Extremely overrated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

I visited Militzis twice in 2012 and on both occasions I was dissapointed. I have spoken to hundreds of people who recommend this place but I cannot see why. It is dirty, the staff have no real manners and the food was average to below average. The only good thing about this place is the unobstructed view of the sea. There are far better places to visit in Larnaca for food, Militzis is for those who do not know how genuine Cypriot food should taste.
