When in Cyprus we go to this restraunt every 3 weeks or so for the Sunday roast which is very good value with good size portions. The roast offered is normally beef, pork and chicken all of which are good as are the roast potatoes. You also get offered all the sauces e.g horseradish, apple sauce etc We have always... More

From the other reviews I've read since returning from my trip you'll either love this place or hate it! While looking for somewhere to eat in the square we noticed the curry night here so decided to give it a go. You get poppadoms and dips to start, a choice of 3 curries for main and dessert for a set... More

Do not go to this place....for years now the 'owner/manager' has been complaining about how she doesn't want to be there....normally has a 'fag' in her mouth and really does not give a damn. Having previously eaten in this so called 'bistro', and having ordered steak which was not cooked to our order, we were told that 'the chef cannot... More

The view was lovely, service was okayish but the food was very indifferent. It was not a complex menu and the dishes we had were very inconsistent in quality. There is nothing wrong with plain food but it must be cooked and presented to perfection. Sadly this was not the case here.

went with a small group first and had a really excellent meal served by very happy staff, We then went back with a larger group and received the same service. The food and drink were both excellent and the surroundings were great as was the pricing for both events

The building has masses of potential to be a great place to eat. However the waitress is aggressive and lacks the welcoming touch. We chose from the 3 course menu. My pork starter was awful and my pan fried chicken turned out to be sliced cold meat. The vegetarian lasagna was dry.

We had a cracking time on Sunday 12/10 9 of us had a varied Sunday lunch in lovely clean surroundings. Served by Liz who took the photo that is attached. Well worth a trip out to spend a few hours, superb views of the med from the terrace where you can dine if you wish.

Tried here on recommendation. Service was like an episode of Fawlty towers. Think Basil & Sybil had fallen out. Food was tasty and plenty of it. However presentation was poor and the owner/waitress/Sybil complaining they weren't busy enough, fed up of running the place, did we want to buy it, I`m 70 you know................... Not our problem, stop moaning.

My family and I first ate at The Square a couple of times in 2010 and were very pleased with it. The food was good, there was a fun atmosphere and the staff were great. We've recently been back to Cyprus as a couple and decided to eat there again. Unfortunately, it turned out to be a mistake. The staff... More
