Without any hesitation we can honestly say that owners Andreas and Stavroula serve the best traditional greek food on the Island of Cyprus.
We came across this restaurant following a search on Trip Advisor having been let down from our own previous experiences of so called "traditional" food. Being greek myself and having grown up with my Mother's excellent cuisine, i tend to be quite critical of certain standards among Greek restaurants, and was therefore delighted to have had this brilliant encounter with Cafe Aman.
We firstly encountered the amazing hospitality of Andreas, Stavroula and their daughter Irini one lunch time when the restaurant was actually closed (they open in the evening). They were themselves eating lunch by the door of their beautiful village house when we passed and causally enquired if they were open. They both immediately leapt from their own meal to insist that we join them. It was like being greeted by old friends and sent me back in time to my childhood and the kind of hospitality that sadly is rapidly diminishing.
We were made to feel special and at home amongst them. We had to return of course and we did twice more in the time that was available before leaving the island. Firstly to sample the Kleftico (Thursday Nights Only) which we cannot enthuse about strongly enough, absolutely the best i have ever tried! And on another occasion the best home spun traditional village greek Meze you will find anywhere.
We had three wonderful experiences with Andreas and Stavroulla not forgetting Andreas's wonderfully eclectic choice of music. We still have the sounds of Vicky Leandros singing "Somethings Got a Hold of my Heart" resonating in our ears. Well, they certainly captured our hearts and we cannot wait to go and visit them again.
