We wanted to enjoy something else than the restaurant of our hotel during our visit to Cyprus, we saw this ad about a restaurant in the mountain. On Wednesdays they pick you up with a bus to take you to this wonderful restaurant, the service was great, excellent food at excellent price. A place where you can breath fresh and clean air. I encourage every person to visit, it is a place you cannot miss!!!

We were four in number and had only 48 hours in Cyprus. We wanted to find an authentic rather than a tourist-flocked restaurant and after a bit of internet research, found a few descriptions of Manolas Tavern. It looked perfect and was only 15 minutes drive from our coastal hotel.
On the approach to Kellaki, there are plenty of wayside signs directing one to the tavern.
We were warmly greeted by the owner and despite there being only one other table of diners (late on a Christmas Eve when most sane souls are at home) we felt quite comfortable and the atmosphere was not lacking. A wood burner provides more than adequate heat to the seating area.
The food tasted good and was freshly prepared; we each had lamb for a main course - cutlets and shanks - both of which were succulent and extremely tasty. We chose table wine, red and white, which, again, were both very pleasant on the palate.
We chatted with the other diners and the owner before heading south to the coast. The lights of Limassol and the ships at anchor provided a wonderful vista as we descended to sea level.
We're so pleased to have found Manolas and surprised it wasn't already listed on Tripadvisor.

As you head up into the hills behind Limassol you'll come across Manolas Tavern It was Christmas Eve so it was unusually quiet but the reception was warm and friendly, the wood burner made it cozy on a cold winters night The friendly owner suggested a selection of mezzo dips, haloumi cheese and tender grilled lamb shank with fresh salad ...all delicious...washed down with a caraf of local wine. The delightful owner and local diners chatted with is about the history of the place which made for a special evening. Summers are busy so you'll need to book but there are more tables available outside outside on the terrace ...this was for us a real Cypriot experience in a lovely location and very memorable.
