“disappointing in the extreme”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

Six of us arrived early evening - perhaps the problem was that we were the first customers that night. One selected starter (seasonal greens) was unavailable (must have been out of season), one never arrived and another included some dried out pork from an old kebab that had been refried to warm it up - inedible.
It went downhill from there.
The lamb chops were not nice and very fatty, the mousaka was hard and dried out along one edge and the afelia was baked hard to the extent that it couldn't be eaten.
If the food had been good we could have excused the waiter's inattentiveness and BO.

“Surprisingly good traditional meze at the Laxia Tavern.”
Reviewed September 2, 2011

The location for this restaurant is on the main road from Paralimni towards Protaras and Cape Greco and at first glance does not seem like the best location for a traditional Cyprus meze, however, the food, wine and atmosphere is excellent.
We shared a fish meze and the quality was superb and the only complaint was that there was so much we could not finish all the dishes!
Good attentive service with a full local wine list.
We were the only non Cypriot customers in a very full restaurant for a Wednesday evening.
Will go back next time we are in Cyprus.
