Reviewed February 12, 2022

First on the positive side, my husband had the 4-cheese quiche and the Tournedos Rossini (fillet steak) - both excellent, also the french fries were excellent. I had the mussels also excellent, they were very tender and the broth was delicious. However, the wait between...the starter and the main course was far too long around 40 minutes. My main course was the salmon, (the most expensive fish main courses at €22) which was obviously overcooked and very dry., For dessert, we both had the profiteroles; the pastry was not like any choux pastry we have ever had, the upper part was tough, the base was hard and inedible, and had to be left on the plate.. The filling was a hard vanilla ice-cream with a bland flavour.; A soft cream or creme patissiere filling would be more traditional, but if you are going to use ice-cream for the filling then it should at least be soft and creamy. The chocolate sauce was not smooth, but very thick and "claggy". There was also a very long delay (30 minutes) between the main courses and the deserts. The overall bill was €92, including only 2 glasses of wine, not a full bottle - not great value.More

This place is by far the best steakhouse I have ever visited in my life. I have always been on a quest to find a place that serves a steak which is out of the ordinary (and trust me I've tried many), and I could...finally say that my mission has been accomplished. I will definitely revisit Cyprus specifically to revisit this restaurant. Not only the food was from out of this world, but also the host who welcomed us perfectly and provided us with a thorough explanation between the differences of each dish and their origin. The Dry Aged French Filet cooked medium-rare is the best dish I've had in my life! .. even rest fo the food stood out and were best dishes we ever had (cheesecake, duck moose, frois grais, mushroom sauce) this place is just special and the chef is an expert! Special thanks to the family owners of this place, hope nothing but the best and to see you again soon!More

The best restaurant experience i’ve had in Cyprus so far. The mussels with garlic were delicious, the foie gras was immaculate (definitely reccomend getting it). The duck main dish was so tender, the meat falls off the bone (the best duck dish i’ve ever had)....The steak with foie gras was also immaculate. We ordered the creme brûlée that was torched in our table, it was A+. It’s expensive, but the taste of the food explains why! it’s worth it!More

I have, over the years, had the pleasure of enjoying steaks from various countries, Aberdeen Angus, Argentinian but here they serve Charolais steaks and they are, by far and away, the very best steaks I have ever eafen. Their wine list is not to be...sneezed at either, we had a delicious Cotes du Rhone.More

This was one of my best restaurant experiences in Cyprus, as a local. The staff are really friendly and genuinely care about pleasing you. The food is fresh and very tasty, with many options to choose from, including many tasty starters! Being a Cypriot, I...like my portions large which was definitely the case! The atmosphere is also great, which, given the difficulty and restrictions that the pandemic sets, is another big plus. The location is not central but this is not a problem since the place is very easily accessible with a car. I would definitely go again and keep this as one of my favourite restaurants to visit regularly!More

This restaurant is quite a way out, and we walked over 2.5 kilometres to get there, but believe me it was well worth it. The food was exquisite, and Gatienne and Yannick were marvellous hosts. Thank you so much for a fabulous lunch (and most...of the afternoon). The menu is very French, and we were spoilt for choice. I had breaded camembert, followed by moules mariniere, and it was simply divine. One of us had a French sirloin steak medium rare, and she absolutely loved it. As soon as we returned home to Pafos, we booked for New Years Day, which is the next time we will be in Nicosia.More

La brasserie has been my go-to place whenever I wanted a bit of home. And home I found: very French fare, flavours, looks, smells - a total joy. I did enjoy Cypriot snails, but I was raised with the French way, so no battle there....The frog's legs, the paté, the steaks, mussels etc: if you want to taste France without the flying, try Au bon plaisir, full stop.More

The owner and her kids were absolutely great. Quick service and wilingful and delightful...to serve you! And the music? Of course live music for that special night!

After reading the reviews about this plae, i srarted reading tje bad ones , and looks like the owners really put an effort to reply, we thought lets go and try this place! I am not a big fan of anything french, but this place...i will for sure visit again. It's a quiet place, that server many different food, the fact french people have a glass and a sppon and fork for everything is a bit funny, but overall ambience experience was nice The waitor was n amazing dude who knew everything that we asked and it helps a lot to know what you are about to eat. We ordered a variety of food duck, fish, and french beef. Everything was amazing, the apetizers were really nice (althought they were a bit expensive for apetizers but very tasty, probably due to the fact that in france they lile to charge more for their products haha) wine was exceptional! portion of main dish was big(there goes my stereotype! haha) so overall i am very satisfied, congrats to the chef and the stuff!More
