“A cozy place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

It is a lovely place for lunch or dinner, warm and pleasent atmosphere, nice view and friendly service. Our only complaints are that quality of coffee could be improved and there is no changer so we had to change the diaper in front of other people eating. Will go back or reccomend it to our friends.

“The meal was delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

I had lamb chops, and my partner had salmon. The meal was prepared properly and served hot. What prevents me from giving a full 5 rating was the service. Once the meal was served, we never received any more attention. I even had to go look for someone to write up our check. Maybe they were short-staffed. Whatever...

“The Costomer is Always WRONG”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

On 28 December i visited this restaurant late afternoon with my daughter, This was my second visit to this restaurant and my first was very pleasant, The restaurant is really beautiful and service ok,
My second visit was completely different, I ordered a pepper fillet steak exactly the same as what i had the first time i visited. However when being served my steak this time my eyes could not believe what i was seeing in front of me. The steak was completely dry, no juice oozing from it as it would have done had it been freshly cooked, i could have picked this up in my hand without and oil on my fingers at all. I asked the waitress where is the sauce, i ordered pepper steak there should be a pepper sauce. She said i ordered a plane fillet steak, but they could easily bring some sauce from the kitchen,
I did not want to argue, i was sure i had ordered pepper steak but i let it go and said bring the sauce, but even so this steak had clearly very clearly not been freshly cooked, It had either been cooked the day before and stored in the fridge where it dried out or possibly just been thrown under a grill and been cooked dry, I ordered a medium steak. The sauce came, clearly not freshly made, and a separate saucer came with it with dried pepper corns that i could add myself into the sauce.
I am one of these people who normaly is too embarrassed to complain in a restaurant, having worked in one for 8 years when i was much younger. Today i have just completed a 60km bike ride up the mountains and i was starving so i ate this steak but after i was feeling so cheated and thinking this is really by far the worst fillet steak i have ever eaten.
Had the waitress come and cleared our table i would have said nothing but the owner came and cleared and asked if the food was good and i could not hold my tongue , i told him how disappointed i was with the steak. The moment i said it he was so angry he would not let me continue to argue my case , he ran to the kitchen and bought a big long fresh piece of fillet from his fridge to show me which meant nothing to me because the piece i had been served had not been freshly cooked but he would not accept it, He started swearing at me in Greek which my daughter being half Cypriot understood every word and made sure as we were leaving he understood, He wanted me to pay and get out of his restaurant, The way he treated me was disgusting and i will never go there again and i am sure he will never allow me to eat there again simply because i complained

“The Skylight...just wonderful x”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

We have been to the Skylight time and time again. The staff are wonderful, they are so happy to see all of their customers. They feel just like family, always giving us a warm welcome. The food is beautiful, such a wonderful selection of local dishes, cooked to perfection.
The restaurant also has its own swimming pool which is an added bonus, beautiful and refreshing.
We will certainly continue to visit on our way back down from the mountains.
The owners are just the most perfect hosts.

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

The staff are very friendly, and personable. The Chef is excellent and his wife an excellent hostess!

A vast variety of food is available, including lots of local dishes as well as tourist specials.
The Restaurant is clean and tidy. The prices are very reasonable and the staff will answer any queries you have on the menu and also on the local area.

Well worth a visit and is a good place to find on a trip into the mountains - So much so that we have made special trips from Limassol time and again.

Possible the best restaurant on the Island - Miss it at your peril.
