“Great food”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

On the last 2 occasions that we have been in Larnaca we have eaten in the Lysia and what a lovely experience it has been.. Great food and big protions I ordered pork chops and they swamped the plate .. salads are lovely and if you dont mind a few calories the roast potatoes are gorgeous.. Lots of people visit and the atmosphere is friendly. Prices are very good and service is excellent i have told my friends in Larnaca to go here for a great eating experience :)

“Good traditional food”
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!”

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”
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.
