Whilst holidaying in Cyprus we visited the Red Pepper for dinner and wow, what a find. Food was so delicious. We had melt in the mouth wagyu beef and tender lamb on our first visit. Our next visit we tried the tuna and squid which...was cooked to perfection. The menu is beautiful crafted by Dean. The business is family run and we were met by Pina and her son Sep. Dean (chef) came out to chat to us and the other guests which was a lovely touch The wine is carefully selected by Pina and we were more than happy with her recommendations. The venue has seatings options inside or out on the terrace. Over the course of our holiday we visited the Red Pepper for three nights Highly recommend this restaurantMore

My husband and I once again had the most amazing meal at Red Pepper yesterday. It was Father’s Day and Dean, the owner with his wife Pina, really put out an amazing selection of meals. Dean excels with his steaks as he does with all...his meals. The lamb was cooked to your taste, which is awesome. The bread is really lovely as was the starters, vegetables, roast potatoes and Yorkshire pudding. Thank you Red Pepper owners and the wonderful staff for once again an amazing meal. The Red Pepper dessert too was an awesome finish to an awesome lunch. Thank you. Will continue to frequent Red Pepper as one can never go wrong with this choice.More

We were only in Larnaca for six days but we went to this great restaurant twice as the food is simply exceptional. This restaurant ticks all the boxes, great place to enjoy an evening out, great service and a menu full of fresh produce perfectly...cooked. We loved every meal including the sensational tuna, pork and incredible steaks (best I’ve had in years!) and applaud Chef Dean, Pina and their amazing staff for ensuring both visits were so enjoyable. Best restaurant in Larnaca - highly recommended!More

My husband and I had an amazing experience. We loved everything about this restaurant. Not just food that was extraodinary delicious, but Chef Dean's passion to quality service and choice of ingredients. He was patient to explain to us all about meats he was using...to offer to his clients that evening. Fresh seafood starters were absolutely outstanding. House wine recommendation was great. Sure you will enjoy it! MUST visit!More

Dean and Team deserve every compliment they get! Service was excellent from welcome to arranging my taxi. Menu not extensive but when you can cook a steak to perfection you don't need loads of choices. The starter and pudding were great too. How often do...you see a chef nowadays front of house making sure the customer gets a great eating experience? Dean and his staff enjoy what they do and it shows. Even my driver told me the locals think it's the best! Overall I had an excellent quality meal, in a lovely ambience. Thank you.More

Okay so we chose this restaurant based on all of the great reviews, also as it was a couple of kilometres away from the tourist area. Firstly I’ll say the food was very good, but the rest of our experience was ridiculous. Here is a...timeline of how the evening went: Arrived at 7.38pm, 7.39pm bread was on the table as well as the menus, 7.41pm ordered drinks and was asked by front of house if we’re ready to order, the menu was very limited, but asked for more time, this is where the fun starts. 7.43pm another waitress asked if we were ready to order yet, no we have only just sat down I said, 7.45pm yet another waitress asked if we were ready to order😡, I politely said can we just want to relax and take our time please, hopefully this got the message across, wrong, a minute or two passes and the head chef comes out of the kitchen and asks to take our order, at this point I just gave in and ordered. I was at this point feeling very stressed and uncomfortable. We ordered ribeye, salad and carbonara. all of which arrived in less than ten minutes, so much for a fine dining relaxing evening. As we were eating, I noticed that every table was being served at stupidly fast pace. The head chef again came out of the kitchen to ask the table behind us if they had finished their starters, as their steaks were ready to be served, really!!! We were in and out within 45 minutes, not what you expect from a fine dining restaurant. Sorry red pepper, we won’t be coming back.More

Beautiful setting and decoration. Pretty open fire, but the smoke from the fire did get down our throats a little. Small menu, very good food, especially the steak. Only drawback would be that there is only 1 choice of dessert and that’s Sticky Toffee Pudding...and that comes in with the set menu which they call ‘Red Pepper Pudding’.More
