Went here on the recommendation of a local taxi driver. Fantastic meal and a great choice, very friendly, traditional music and a great selection. Really worth a visit. Very reasonable pricing also.

We were recommended this restaurant by our wedding co-ordinator and as we are getting married in this area next year and are looking for a traditional taverna where we can hold our reception meal. Firstly the restaurant wasn't busy but that was due to being early in the season. We had a warm welcome from Marios the owner who was... More

Stumbled across this place by accident last Tuesday and can hands down say it's one of the best places I've ever had the pleasure to eat in whilst in Cyprus. The stifado is fantastic. I stayed in Greece for 7 years and the stifado is right up there with the best i've ever had. The wife had the Kleftiko. We... More

A great welcome and excellent food. The kleftiko in particular is the best that I had tasted and all meals very reasonably priced. The house wine, red and white are both good and again reasonably priced. If you are looking for traditional Cypriot food Ifalos is well worth a visit.

We were recommended this restaurant before we arrived in protaras so we decided to walk to pernera to try. It was quiet as it was the first opening night but the food was very good and staff very friendly. We had the local wine which we both liked.

Despite the restaurant not being busy we stopped here for a midweek meal and it was great. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food was delicious. We both had off the specials menu - kleftico and another pork dish. Both were very tasty and we really enjoyed our meal here.

Visited this gorgeous restaurant in October with friends!! Was delighted to find such a spectacular variety of tastes, marvellous atmosphere and friendly staff! The owner, a very polite guy, Marios, recommended four dishes which left our taste buds excited: beef stifado, to die for, homemade mousakka from his mother's hands, kleftiko that melted in your mouth and the fisherman's basket....
