I had the biggest plate of octopus that I have ever seen and it only cost €15! Cooked to perfection - which is really difficult with larger pieces of octopus, I could not fault it. My partner had a vegetarian pizza (limited vegi options, but this isn't unusual for Cyprus) which she enjoyed thoroughly. We moved to the bar next... More

We came here for lunch and had sheftalia, moussaka and a halloumi and lountza pitta. I am half-Cypriot, so that actually makes me a fairly critical judge of the food in Cyprus. This place was hit and miss in many ways. The sheftalia were pretty good. They could have done with a touch longer on the grill to make them... More

We only eat once here due to an issue we had with one of our dishes. One of us ordered a Moussaka (we have had numerous Moussakas in Cyprus) and unfortunately it was very poor. My partner commented it wasn't very nice but did eventually eat about a third of it before giving up, the Pepper Chicken I had was... More

Returned here after 3 years and very pleased we did. Fish and moussaka lovely. Portions on the large side. Lovely staff especially ' happiness' who lives up to her name, what a lovely smile. Will not wait another 3 years to return. Good for meals or a quiet drink in the middle of the day. Diane

We finally decided to try this restaurant after a few days here and I'm so glad that we did ! The food was excellent- they had good vegetarian options which is something that is sometimes hard to find in Cyprus. Most importantly: the service was amazing! The waiter and waitress were both so so friendly, my only regret is not... More

After some recent bad experiences at restaurants trying to be a cut above a Cyprus tavern we decided to go back to Platea or George's as we used to call it. We had an excellent meal with good service and felt convinced that this is the most reliable way to have a good evening out. It's a lovely atmosphere in... More

We had often had a coffee or a beer at this taverna during the day time. Which is situated in the village of Pissouri's Square. A nice setting with plenty of atmosphere. We have my son Andrew and his wife Sheila staying with us so we thought we should give it a try. The welcome was warm and friendly and... More

A large group of us when we were here in a 50th birthday, the service is very good, the food great but sadly not Cypriot, however it was hot very tasty and huge amounts, if you have a huge appetite then you will be fine, sadly we had to leave some!

We rented an apartment just outside the main square of the village and were impressed with the friendliness of the people. Most locals spoke some English and I was anxious to try out my 4 words of Greek! The village is full of restaurants - all reasonable with good food. We were made especially welcome at the Platea Tavern where... More
