“Fantastic restaurant on the seafront”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012 via mobile

Lovely restaurant right on the sea front of Perneras beach.

Good selection of dishes, would recommend the Cypriot specialities.

Child friendly with plenty of high chairs.

“Lovely setting overlooking the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

Went here twice during our holiday, the first time was for a long lunch where we ordered the meat mezze for two of us, our order was quickly taken and then the food started to arrive, and just kept on coming! - I know that is the idea of a mezze, but make sure you are really hungry if you go for this!! Good quality of food and a really good selection, it was reasonably priced for the amount of food we got! Had a lovely relaxing few hours watching the world go by and looking at the views over the beach. Had a couple of bottles of nice chilled rose to wash it down with, great afternoon!

Following the success of the first meal, we decided to return a week later for an evening out, we were seated straight away and given menus..we then waited, and waited, and waited - no one came to take our drinks order, which would have been nice to keep us going - kept trying to catch someone as they rushed past with no luck (restaurant was busy, but not full, and there were a lot of staff on). After a near 20 minute wait, I flagged down one of the waitresses as she shot by to ask if we could place an order, she wasn't able to take our order but went and got someone who could. No apology for the wait, but we ordered our food at the same time. Drinks then arrived quite quickly, followed soon after by the food. Although the food was nice, the wait had spoilt it a bit for us and so we didn't stay and have more drinks and people watch as the previous visit.

Nice setting, nice food - but not sure it would be my first choice for a return visit again.

“Good food and a wonderful view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

Comfortable sat overlooking the beach as the sun went down over the water and had a lovely shared starter. I followed with grilled red snapper while my wife had a meat dish. Lovely friendly service at the start of the meal, but was disappointed when nobody offered us desert or coffee at the end. I had to go to the bar and ask for the bill - and complained about the service at which point they gave us each a complimentary brandy. I still had to get up to the bar however to pay the bill. Not cheap and a bit disappointing finally.

“Good, no nonsense beach side restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

With an excellent location this is a good restaurant. Prices are fair for what it offers and food, although not extraordinary, is decent. Visited the place many times and can vouch for its consistency. Reserve in advance for a front row table with view.

“fave restraunt while i was on holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

While me and my family were on holiday we went to this restraunt EVERY day for lunch. It was just at the end of the private beach for the hotel we stayed at. It was just so delicious! I enjoyed pizza or pasta for lunch along with an ice cold bottle of coke. I also enjoyed cheesy garlic bread. If you are in protaras you just HAVE to try this gorgeous restraunt!
