“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013 via mobile

Had lovely lunch here with a group of friends. Fresh fish amazing, yummy Moussaka, baked pork knuckle, all washed down with local chilled white wine. The view is breathtakingly spectacular. Definitely not to be missed

“Our favourite restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

It is difficult to find a restaurant that isn't touristy and much the same as the one next door in Pissouri although admittedly 1 week doesn't give a huge amount of time to form a well judged opinion. Our favourite however, has to be this one. With more of a family/local feel about it we really enjoyed the atmosphere, the friendliness of the staff and the superb 'clay pot' meals on offer as additions to the usual menu. Highly recommended.

“Superb Food and full of atmosphere....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

I've been to Pissouri many times over the last few years but this was my first visit to Two Friends.
On the first visit I thought it was great but wondered if it could be as good the second time - it was., so much so that we visited four times during our stay and each time we loved it there.
The menu was very good and there was usually a 'special' which was also very well cooked.
There's parking outside the restaurant which is good for Pissouri village as it's sometimes a scramble to find a spot. The restaurant itself is perched on the edge of the Village and the view is marvellous.
Make sure you book if you go there as it's a very busy restaurant.

“First time great, second time not to great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

After finally managing to find the place (went right rather than left on the hill) we ended up going twice with quite different experiences each time. The fist time was excellent - bordering on a five out of five dining experience as the food and service was spot on. Based on that we decided to return for our last evening meal in Cyprus. A bit of a mistake. The service this time was extremely slow and for some reason the quality of the food was nowhere near as good as on our previous visit. As for ratings the first visit would be 5/5 with the second a very generous 2/5 so I've plumped for 3/5 overall.
