We have been a frequent visitor to the Half Way House (between Polis and Argaka) since 2005. The menu is straight forward but well cooked. Vaz and Julie have taken over from Jack, although Jack is still a frequent visitor, and they are very welcoming. As my wife recently found out that she was gluten and dairy intolerant, Julie prepared... More

Open Tuesday to Sunday from breakfast time until around 4pm. We have been visiting Halfway House since the days before it was renovated. Even then, it was lovely home cooked food. Now with the renovations, there are great facilities (indoor and outdoor) and the food is just as good as it always was. Julie and Vas run the place with... More

After a morning's drive along the coast towards Pomos noticed newly refurbished eating place. We went for lunch and sat outside. From the comprehensive menu we had 2 kebab platters freshly cooked with chips and salad. Friendly husband and wife team - he in the kitchen and she tending the tables. Mix of English and Cypriot clientele.

Having only visited the Halfway House during the day, we were invited to join most of a local village's residents to enjoy a Kleftiko evening in September, it was absolutely delicious with freshly made salads and roast potatoes with a selection of homemade UK desserts including sherry trifle or vanilla slices (if there was room of course). Highly recommended.

we stopped at this taverna for a light lunch last year on the recommendation of some friends who live in Cyprus. It's a lovely setting, just across the road from the sea, looking very traditional from the front with the vine covered terrace. This year we went back for a bigger lunch on the day that we were travelling home.... More
