We didn't expect this many great vegi-options in Pissouri! Also the staff is...really friednly and eager to help/explain everything to visitors/guests.More

Recommended by locals so we visited for an evening meal. Lots of options home made. Friendly staff, superb food, particularly the very large pork chop, which unsurprisingly is very large !! Owner also local sommelier so went with his recommendations on local wines which was...well worth it. Reasonably priced so all in all well worth a stop.More

We stopped expecting standard Greek taverna fayre - only to find a whole vegan / vegetarian menu on offer alongside the main menu. This is rare in Cyprus - most places now offer a couple of vegatarin options but few have a page of choices!...Ww were only having a light lunch but we will come again and stay longer!More

We visited this taverna for lunch and returned the next evening, taking a taxi from Pissiuri Bay where we were staying. A charming taverna is a delightful village square location. Excellent food and hospitality. Definitely worth the taxi ride!

We had the rabbit stew and a baked chicken dish. Both were delicious. Nice cocktail menu, with some different ones on there. The lemon drop was divine. Nice complimentary bread. Inexpensive delicious food, in the square, where in some places you would pay a lot...of money, here in Cyprus that is not the case.More

We were shown to our table by a friendly young woman. We were told that certain dishes on the menu were no longer available, so we ordered dishes that were apparently available. After a 10-minute delay, the embarrassed server returned, apologised and told us that...one of the alternative dishes was also not available. Ever patient, we changed our order and waited for a further 32 minutes without food being served. At that point, I went into the restaurant to complain. The staff looked surprised and immediately brought the over-cooked moussaka and aphelia that looked like canned dog food in a bowl. It seemed that the order had been taken, prepared and then forgotten about by the staff. Hence the burnt and revolting end product. When asked if "everything was alright", I told them it was awful. I didn't want a refund; we just wanted to pay, leave and warn other tourists not to go to that restaurant.More

We had a meal for 4 at this restaurant. Service was very slow. Probably understaffed but we had to wait a considerable time to get drinks and menus then even further for them to take our order. The girls ordered the lamb while we boys...had the Tuna. The girls found theirs very fatty while I had to send my Tuna back as it was well undercooked and cold. Strange as the other Tuna came overcooked. This unfortunately is the third time over the last few years trying this restaurant and two out of the three time the food has been very poor. Such a pity as staff are pleasant enough.More

After a few days in Cyprus we ate in different places and this place is the best. Good, big and tasty dishes. Good and friendly service. The next day we came back again. When you visit Pissouri I recommend this place.

Depends on how cool the evening is, we sat out side about mid way between the pavement and the door.

I think it is every Friday from 19.30 but we arrived too late to enjoy it and only stayed for a week in Pissouri
