“Nice food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

Nice food, lots of traditional dishes some with a bit of a modern twist. I had an aubergine in tomato sauce dish which was delicious, it came unaccompanied only criticism is it could have done with potatoes or rice with it to soak up the sauce. Nice guitar singer as well.

“Delicious lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

We had an early dinner in Hondros just a few days ago, and the food was delicious. We ordered Stifado and Keftedes for main course and a salad. Stifado was just great, with beef so tender it melts already on your fork (seasoned with cinemmon,bay leafs, cloves...) and my wife's Keftedes were supereb. Both dishes and the salad were seasoned perfectly so we really enjoyed all the flavours.

Just perfect!

“Very poor - avoid”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

We called in one night during our recent 2 week holiday, it looked quite busy so we thought it would be good, but not so. The food arrived quickly, so not cooked to order, it was cold, and flavourless, no seasoning or herbs used at all. Very poor, there are much better places to eat. It wasn't cheap either. Very disappointing.

“Excellent and authentic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Wonderful food- get the dips to share which makes a great starter if you're out as a couple. The mains arrive as soon as they've cooked them, which I think has confused some reviewers on trip advisor as they've mistaken that for being rushed - no, it's just the way they do things! Very friendly service and we were offered and brought extra bread (fresh and warm from the kitchen) for no charge. The keftedes (meatballs) are excellent, as is their house special salad, a lighter option, which would be great for vegetarians who are ok with cheese, as it has wonderful toasted halloumi. Try their family-produced wine - called Uncle Sophocles - much better than the tangy and frankly surprising mass produced offerings from Keo, and better value too. Perfect location and lovely atmosphere. I've previously visited the Hondros as part of a large group, and our meal was great then too.

“Lovely atmosphere,a little pricey & not as traditional as I would have liked,but still worth a visit to the oldest taverna in to”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Visited once with a friend. I was a little worried when I'd read the reviews,but I had no need to be ...
Had this restaurant recommended to us by a gentleman who originates from the UK, but that lived in Cyprus for a significant period in his life. It was easy to find i.e. just 2 minute walk from the bus station.Despite it's location,i.e. by the side of a busy road,it felt quite tranquil & traditional.The calamari starter & humous with warm pitta was lovely (you need to share the humous dip as it's a large portion!).We had lamb kleftico as our main,which was delicious albeit a little fatty.Our meal was filling so no room for dessert.A little pricey & not as traditional as I would have liked,but still worth a visit to the oldest taverna in town.
