“Nice food!”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

We thought we should give it a try as we found it on Trip Advisor and we liked it quite a lot! Although it's a bit expensive, the chef does a great job and the staff is very friendly! We would have gone back if we had more days in Limassol, but we were there just for a day so... Try some of their desserts, you' ll beg for more!

“good but...”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Without doubt nice mane dishes ,but extremely small starters,count 2 starters for each person,good staff but need more training.Place need more space,usually indoor seating.
Unacceptable practice to serve shots without orders & after makes these shots discount in the bill to looks familiar.Prices start from 40 euros,but have in mind that probably you will hungry because of food quantity.

“Great Place!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Good alternative to what you can visit in Limassol right now! One a few decent places, positioned as slow food, elegant seating, open kitchen, close contact to the chief (amazing gentleman!!!) Patrick and fantastic food at the top of all of this! My sincere advise to visit especially now, when the prices are still very much reasonable (especially for wine and dessert).

“Excellent menu and dining”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

Excellent atmosphere and ambience from the moment we were seated. Staff were very friendly and attentive, with an excellent knowledge of the dishes on the menu and passion for the quality of the food.
The menu was interesting and diverse and it took us a while to decide!
We sampled the bruschetta, scallops and prawns as a starter - all were cooked to perfection with a high level of skill and very tasty.
For mains , the calamari was excellent , tender , with a sauce with just the right amount of freshness and heat. The lobster pasta was also equally good.
Overall a great experience, from the level of service to the perfection in the execution of the dishes.
Very much recommended for a fine dining experience.
