I was brought there by friends during a business trip to the island. I have to admit it is one of the best taverns there. It is true that there is a distance from the major cities, but the quantity and the quality won't disappoint you. Ask whether you can book a table just to have you from the trouble... More

Only opens half the week, this is also an attraction as all the staff dress up in traditional dress and it has live local music from about 9 ish when open. Owner is very friendly and you get a welcome drink on arrival, there is no menus and you have a fixed price deal, but beware you will be given... More

They feast starts with traditional soup and fresh home made bread and after that more than 20 dishes followed. A big selection of dessert waiting for you on the buffet after all this food. You should definitely try Ayia Anna tavern if... More

We were taken here by our Cypriot hosts. Authentic setting for both locals and tourists alike. Live musicians and locals dancing. Jugs of white and red wine and more courses than you can shake a Meze at. Make your own coffee at the end if you are adventurous! A fine venue with delicious Cypriot cooking. We went on a Saturday...

Ayia Anna is one of the best taverns in Larnaca with delicious traditional appetizers. I highly recommend this tavern.

As someone of Cypriot heritage I can't stand the 'tourist' taverns that claim to offer meze and then provide the usual cheesy entertainment. So, if you've got a car when you're out in Cyprus, you have to go here! It's easy to find, just take the motorway towards Limassol and at the big roundabout where the 24 hour kiosk is... More
