My girlfriend and I stayed in Troodos for the weekend and on Saturday night, made a last minute decision to have dinner in Kakopetria. We called up 2 restaurants, which we have been before, but both were fully booked. We had a look on trip advisor and saw some good reviews for the 'Tziellari' so decided to check it out. I must admit that I was rather surprised to find out that there is an Argentinian restaurant in Kakopetria - of all places. I don't know of any other Argentinian restaurant on the island.
We arrived at the restaurant only to see that the place was empty which we thought was rather ominous for a Saturday night. At first we were rather reluctant to go in but we were greeted by a very friendly Georgia, one of the restaurant Owners. The ambiance of the restaurant was very nice with lots of Argentinian memorabilia and a fireplace. We sat down and looked through the menu before Victor, the very cheerful, delightful Argentinian Chef who wears his heart on his sleeve (and other restaurant Owner) came in and greeted us with some leaflets and brochures on Argentina. They both made us feel very welcome in what was a very cozy, relaxed and warm atmosphere.
Although the menu has a combination of both Cypriot and Argentinian cuisine we ordered a variety of Argentinian tapas type dishes only, as we wanted to try something different. The food was delicious especially the Empanadas and the Argentinian sausages. Lots of different and unique flavours and just something different that you don't get every day.
Throughout the evening both Georgia as well as Victor spent a lot of time speaking to us and it was almost like we were sitting in their own kitchen having dinner with them. We got to know them both quite well. Victor has many great stories of his time in the Argentinian army and of his time in Argentina which was very interesting to hear.
Thank you Georgia and Victor for a very pleasant evening. We will visit you again. I need to try one of the steaks next time round :)
