Amazing food, live music, pet friendly patio. There is no other place I'd rather be on a summer eve than Cyprus. Wonderful Mediterranean food coupled with good wine and jazz, what could be better. Love this place and its people.

We went for dinner. Got seated inside which we asked for. Water brought to the table then ignored for the next twenty minutes. Tried yo get wait staff’s attention but it was like we were invisible. Finally just got up and left.
