“Excellent local cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

Great that this restaurant has a listing as been dining here regularly during the past 18 months or so. Situated in Skarinou (take exit 13 off the Limassol/Larnaca highway towards Lefkara, go past Orphanides and McDonalds on your left, right at the junction and you will find Olive on your left).
Andreas, the chef and his wife are a charming couple and very welcoming.
The starters are different to the standard Cypriot dips - recommended is the avocado spread and baked feta in tomatoes (delicious) served with toasted bread.
We've sampled the pork fillet, moussaka, beef stew, grilled salmon and all are beautifully cooked and served with fresh veg and 'real' chips. A half carafe of red or white wine at only 5 Euro is fine.
Also served on the house is fruit in season and homemade cake in the Winter. Open every day for lunch and dinner except Tuesday.
Great value for money and well worth a visit.
