Good cypriot food at reasonable prices, nice restaurant and friendly helpful staff. Nice family atomsphere visited with very small grandaughter last year happy to accomodate her. We usually make at last one trip here each time we go to Cyprus and we visit the island at least 4 times a year.

“Good traditional food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

If your taste is for good traditional food and reasonably priced you will not go wrong with Lisia. The full complement of all types of Greek food from souvla, meat in wine, special bean meals, salads and the regular dips. Service is very good and no booking is necessary. Also a take away service is available for when you fancy not to cook at home or friends visit unexpectedly. And all at reasonable prices.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

This was my fifth visit to the restaurant and every time I go I always get the same high quality of food and high quality of service. It is a must if you are around the area, I recommend it without hesitation!

“Nothing Special”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

Visted this restaurant on a sunday evening with family. I was expecting more after reading other reviews. I found the food and service to be rather mediocre. There was nothing special about anything on the menu. One of the dishes we ordered were the beans in tomato sauce. These were on the crunchy side as they had not been cooked for long enough. The kleftiko was rather fatty and quite unappetizing.

Apart from taking our order (which in fact I had already written down to save time)
thr waiter/waitress did not approach out table again. We had to catch their eye if we wanted
any more drinks etc.

The most off-putting aspect of this restaurant is the huge number of cats which wander around the dining area quite freely. It makes you think that maybe these cats have free access to the kitchen! Maybe the health department should be taking a look into this. I mentioned the cats to the waiter whose reply was :'they are not our cats' so my question is why are they allowed to roam around.

Will not be hurrying back. There are plenty of other restaurants in the area.

“Original Cyprus food in Touristic area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2012

Cyprus original food: Kleftico, Souvla, Pourgouri. All in the best Cyprus way! Best restaurant in Larnaca Dekelia Road area (tourist area/hotels). If you are going to stay in hotels around there, must try once this restaurant.
