Whether you live in Cyprus or are just visiting it is definitely worth going to Archontiko Papadopoulou for an amazing dining experience. The Archontiko Papadopoulou restaurant is located in the village of Kornos about a half hour drive from Larnaca. The village is famous for its pottery workshops and the restaurant is set in a beautiful renovated mansion. Everything about this restaurant is spectacular, the interior design is beautiful and the outside dining area is plentiful, set within a secluded walled courtyard with trees and plants. The restaurant has its own pottery workshop and a fantastic wine cellar. My husband and I decided to dine here for my birthday treat and were not disappointed. Earlier in the year, out of season, we spent some time in Kornos and visited the restaurant during the day for coffee and a quick look at the menu. We decided then that we would definitely come back for a meal during the summer when we could experience the outdoor, romantic ambience. There is an a la carte menu, meze menu and impressive wine menu. As their speciality is serving meze in small hand-made clay pots we decided to give it a try. There were 18 dishes altogether, all of which were delicious and expertly prepared. The combinations of taste and textures were amazing and far superior to any meze we have ever had elsewhere. The cost in our opinion was very reasonable, 25 euros each including a very high quality house wine and unlimited table water. Amongst the dishes were three kinds of homemade bread, several deliciously crafted starters, tavas, kleftico, marinated chicken, stuffed pork, salad with figs, halloumi with sesame seeds, stuffed mushrooms, stuffed aubergines and much more. To finish the meal there were four different homemade traditional sweets, coffee and Commandaria. Also if you prefer to buy your drinks separately you can order the meze at a cost of 22 euros per person. Our waiter and the restaurant owner were both very helpful and informative and explained in detail about the wine and the ingredients of each dish. They asked us for our email address so they can inform us of future special events, such as gourmet BBQ and wine tasting evenings. We were very impressed with everything about Archontiko Papadopoulou and will definitely be dining there again. We also look forward to treating our guests in the future to a "Rolls Royce" dining experience that they will never forget!
