We just happened to be mooching about at the bottom of the waterfall walk nearby and saw this on the village map. We wandered down and were treated to an entertaining talk by the owner John (meeting him is worth the visit in itself!) which of course led to us buying plenty of goodies from the shop. We understand he... More

This place has been the highlight of our trip to the Troodos area. Having had a brief overview of the types of chocolate available, the owner overheard our British accents and insisted on giving us a detailed description on each one, and how they were conceived. He was very welcoming and humorous, and his chocolate stories made the trip well... More

During our visit to the Triodes Mountains in June 2016, we detoured via Pano Platres on the strength of this little institution's recommendations. It was, truth to be told, a pretty wide detour given the village's position in the heart of the mountains - however, every kilometre driven proved to be worth the effort. We are very widely travelled and... More

This friendly and highly knowledgable chocolatier is a gem in Platres. The chocolates are delicious - I recommend the salted caramel.

Visited the place with a few friends after lunch at platres. The owner was the highlight of the shop. He knows he's chocolates and very welcoming. Chocolates are exotic with a touch of cyprus. Would recommend if u have time to spare.

A very knowledgeable couple in chocolate, they tell you where they get their cocoa beans from and why, you can try different chocolates, ice cream, book a workshop, all in all a good couple of hours well spent.

In terms of what we saw it was just a shop. You need to book for a workshop I guess. Very nice man and let us try things but he doesn't know when to stop - trying to leave is nearly impossible. Bought a little box of chocolates and they are fine and have a lot of history but he... More

This is a must see if you are anywhere near the Troodos mountains on Cyprus. John is nice and the mastermind behind the establishment. He is a master chocolatier! and has a wealth of knowledge. His passion for chocolate is inspiring! It is a bit expensive, but it is top quality chocolate.
