“Standard Brit Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

Althought the locale is great--classic cars, themed wall art, big snooker table and friendly atmosphere and service, I thought the menu and quality were uninspiring (other than the Crispy toffee pudding which was an excellent surprise!!). The pricing seemed slightly above-average but I have not visited that many places on the island so cannot be sure. As basically a roadside eatery, it is a very handy location, just off the A-1 (Maroni exit or Skarniou exit) and certainly something dependable if you are looking to fill yourself up. As an atlernative i would suggest the Tochni Tavern (located at the top of the hill in the quaint village of Tochni 's Cyprus Village lodging) which we stumbled upon about 10 minutes away from Classic Car a few days later and for the extra kilometers and the few extra euros per person a by far superior meal (and view) w/ fresh vegetables al dente, prime servings of a variety of meats and flavors with sides of delicious, flavorful specialty items. The Classic Car restaurant probably does have some fun evenings with quizz nights, Brit expat hang out, other events and as a break from locale Cyprus fare so it certainly does have some other positive qualities as well.

Delightful surroundings, excellent food and service, a real taste of home.
The classic cars on show were great,also the full sized snooker table was a real novelty.
Well worth a visit

“Teddy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

Been to this restaurant many times on our hols, Cannot fault the management or staff. In fact we would go so far as to say outstanding service and a little home from home when you get fed up of the usual cypriot kebabs and stuff... Long may you reign Classic, You make our stay sooooo cosy and worth while when we are staying more than a month. Thank you to you both Jon and Sam. xx Try the Sunday roast, its awsome. xxx And any bad posts on here would just be sour grapes, idiots xxx

“Try and judge for yourself.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

I stopped off here whilst travelling the island. I was warmly greeted and the surroundings felt like home from home.
The food served was of a very poor standard, and that amazed me following the other reviews.
As a result I will not be back.
