We were looking for somewhere to eat that was a bit different to the normal tourist fare & La Boca was recommended by a member of staff in our hotel - we owe him a drink!

On arrival you are given a plastic card and menus. You choose your table and then go to different counters to order your food and drinks. You swipe your card on a reader at the different counters to register your orders. For main courses you're given a 'pager' that bleeps and lights up (alarming!) when your food is ready. At the end of the meal you take your card to the till to be read and pay up. Because there's fewer waiting staff it's great value.

We had trio de bruschetta between us to start - really fresh tomatoes and nice mixed peppers with cheese. For mains we had Toscana pizza and one if the specials, seafood risotto. The pizza base could have been a little crispier but otherwise couldn't fault the meal. Overall I'd say the cost was 15% lower than we had expected. We visited on Tuesday evening and when we paid we were invited to a party at a club on the second floor of an adjacent building. It had been a long day, so we didn't go but we're told the club is amazing and the party happens every Tuesday.

In the evening the modern building and outside seating area of La Boca has a great ambiance. It's a couple of minutes walk off the main road through Limmasol and you can use the off street pay and display public car park.

We're only in Cyprus for a week but are already planning a return trip next year and La Boca will definitely be on the list of places to come back to!

We had missed La Boca in Paphos since it's closure so were delighted to find this one in Limassol very active. We arrived late afternoon and the self service theme worked well, although our orders were sitting on the counter awaiting collection before we realised that they were there!
The usual good standard with a nice salad and delicious meatballs for me as one of the day's specials.
Prices very reasonable for both food and wine but as I said, maybe a slightly better system to let you know when your food is ready-on a busy evening that could be a real problem otherwise.

Visited La Boca for lunch and not returning. The place was very busy, so had to stand in cue, which was fine since its a self service place. What was not fine, was having the manager getting in front of me with a full page of orders (thought it was self service!!! I assume it depends who you are).What was even worse, was that after waiting for my turn, i had to face a very impolite chef. Not only was he not helpful, but arrogant and impolite. Asking politely if i could get a small pizza for the children he said that he would charge it the same price (i hadn't asked for a discount) and when asking if i could add an extra ingredient that was not included in the description in the menu, he suggested i go home and order delivery. Had the children not been hungry I would have cancelled the order and left. Unacceptable behavior. NOT RETURNING

La boca is a great place to go at any time for a quick lunch/dinner. The food is really good (especially the mare e monti pasta), service is fast (ok you might have to ways 10 more minutes for pizzas but is worth it) and atmosphere is relaxed. Prices are from 5-10 euros and is the only self service restaurant i know in Limassol. I go there a couple of time every month and I would recommend it to everyone.
