With a family history since end of 19th century, Vangelis Tavern was a landmark for Paralimni and greater Famagusta area for many years. Now the 5th generation of restaurateurs is running the business in a place established in 1948. During summer our tavern is moving to Protaras in the hotels Avenue.
