After two relatively modest experiences with highly rated places in Ayia Napa, this place proved a definite and positive contrast. The restaurant caters for the tourist crowd but manages to keep a quality profile. Succulent and savory dishes -we had meze all of us- stand...More

There is some backround Greek instrumental music but I don’t know if people can dance, as there is no dance floor. You can contact the tavern directly and ask them about this. Hope I was helpful.. :-)

¨We are situated at the north entry of Ayia Napa in an old traditional house built in 1932 since 1976. The first taverna of Ayia Napa. Available inside and outside dinning and a smoking area. Beautiful fireplace for the colder days and vineyard outside. We serve really fresh fish and excellent traditional dishes from the family recepies. All our ingredients are daily fresh and we only use cypriot virgin oil. Homemade desserts and we serve the best paklava.
