We ate lunch here. Lamb chops were delicious and the local red wine recommended by one of the staff was very good. Moreover, live music to complement the meal, which was delightful.

Great food. We both had the Moussaka and couldn’t finish it! Beautiful flavours and couldn’t recommend highly enough. Stunning venue. Felt like a traditional Cypriot back garden. The service was top quality. Flawless.
