Here you can make it so simple or expensive as you want. You can take a simple souvlakia (tastefull and not expensive, 4.95 EU) or you can take rabbit or a fish dish. Nice people who work there, some with less knowledge of the english language than others, but they understand you. My boyfriend and me went here two times.... More

Excellent service and food. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. The food is delicious and lots of local dishes on the menu. Location is directly on the sea front and close to Mackenzie Beach. Atmosphere was perfect for a quiet and relaxed dinner/lunch by the ocean. Highly recommended.

This Restaurant/Tavern a is on the sea front just opposite the fishing boat harbor,an Ideal summer setting for a meal or a winters meal inside near the log fire. It is family run and the food is good and very reasonably priced. The regular locals are very friendly. Give this place a try, you wont be dissapointed. P & I

Went for simple kebabs with my wife on the second visit. She had chicken I had pork. More than satisfied with the meal and great outlook over the sea. Very reasonable prices and good service. Highly recommend.

We enjoyed visiting this family-run restaurant during our stay in Larnaka. It was a real pleasure to sit in the shadow of the grape, to watch the sea across the road and to enjoy really delicious food. We always felt there like coming to grandma and granddad — so warm was the atmosphere :)

We just stumbled on this place while walking along the sea wall in Larnaca city. It was our last evening in Cyprus. We had eaten a lot of meals--some excellent; some "meh." Portokali attracted us by the chalked menu, the open grill, and the casual atmosphere. Our server--nice man--recommended the lamb keftida and the souvlaki. So that's what he had.... More
