“Top Notch Restaurant for Family and Couples alike!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

I have been to Thanasis' a number of times over the last 4-5 years when visiting Cyprus and I have to say we've never been disappointed.

It's now almost a guaranteed stop as part of our holiday. The food is great, the atmosphere is relaxed but also engaging and the staff make a huge effort to ensure that you enjoy each meal.

All in i think you have missed a chance to experience all that Cypriot cuisine has to offer if you don't visit this place while in Cyprus.

“The best in Kouklia !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

As permanent residents we tried them all and for us Thanasis place is without any doubt the best in Kouklia. The decor is nice & cozy and everything is very clean, even the toilets, which is unfortunately not the case in a lot of other places. We like the extensive menu with a combination of the traditional food and international dishes where you can always find something different to eat and I absolutely love their meze, truly delicious. The service is done with a big smile & they are very helpful in choosing the correct wines. No matter if we're only having a sandwich for lunch or an extensive dinner, the food is very good and we always have a great time there. We've taken lots of friends and they all love it and the Greek dancing on Friday nights has been a big hit with all of them. Reservations are recommended on the weekend in high season but when we came back late from a trip last year they managed a table for us within 10 minutes even though the place was packed. Thanasis place is definately our favourite spot in Kouklia

“great authentic restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

The night we had at Thanasis Place was such a memorable part of my holiday.
I love the authenticity of it- that there are kids from the village playing outside, that locals seem to eat here, and of course: the food! At the time we ate there I was a vegetarian and I literally couldn't resist the souvlaki it smelt so good! There was a great variety of delicious food, a great atmosphere and even a performance which I assume occurs once a week. The entertainment was fantastic, with lots of traditional dancing. It was at this point of the night I realised how many of the diners were infact Cypriots as they all knew the steps! Thankyou Thanasis for a beautiful dinner, a great experience and if I am ever back in Cyprus, I'll be making a visit!

“The Best Taverna for Miles!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

I live close to Kouklia and this is 'my local'! Have eaten here since they opened and the food has always been wonderful, a great meze which is always changing, fresh Sea Bream and Sea Bass and a superb selection of local wines.Thanasis is a great cook, and with his sister Sofia they make everyone feel at home whether you are local or a first time visitor! .A very popular taverna with the residents of Ha Potami and we have enjoyed many private parties here.They really made some great evenings for us! Family here this week and guess where we're off to tonight..... !?
