“Six Hungry Golfers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

I just need to add to the high praise this restaurant has received on Trip Advisor. All six of us had a fantastic meal at the Old Town in their lovely garden. Great welcome, complimentary pitta bread and hummus whilst we chose our meals. We nearly all had different starters and main courses and there were empty plates all round.

This is so much better than the usual food you get in and around Polis. It is a 'must go to' for anyone who likes very well cooked quality food.

“This is one of the best restaurants in Cyprus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Excellent food, beautiful setting. Great place to relax, friendly staff. The starters are all home made Cyprus meze dishes. Excellent veal chop & lobster spaghetti. The garden is beautiful with table under the vine trees.

“Perfect restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Visited twice during our holiday after reading reviews here. Ate inside the first time, when we returned they had opened the garden for the season. Inside is a cosy old stone building, and outside, the garden area has been well planned to give a romantic atmosphere amongst walls, pots and pergolas.

Superb food and good wine, not expensive for the quality on offer. Mains start at E17. You also get wonderful veg to accompany, and on our second visit we got a complimentary pudding.

Service is excellent and friendly.

“A secret jewel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

We have a villa in nearby Neo Chorio so try and visit Cyprus at least three times a year (work permitting!). On each visit we make a point of eating at the Old Town Tavern at least twice a week as it is so incredibly special. The surroundings and ambience are simply delightful from the old stone interiors to dining amongst the carob trees in the garden in the summer months - perfect in so many ways. The food is of the highest standard with an extensive menu - all freshly prepared and cooked; the menu is accompanied by a very long wine list! But if you just simply want a glass of the house wine you will not be disappointed. Its our favourite place to eat in the whole of Cyprus and cant wait to be back there later in the year to enjoy yet another super evening.

“Delicious food, friendly staff and best restaurant in Polis!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

I just moved to Polis a few months ago and I keep coming back for more! Every time i come, the food has been cooked to perfection and Vangelis, the owner and chef, has always treated my taste buds to something new. The interior is cozy and welcoming and the al fresco dining in the garden is a romantic setting for a perfect night out. Coming from London I've eaten at many five-star restaurants and The Old Town Tavern is at the top of my list. I recommend you come to experience gourmet food at its finest.
