Once again visited this restaurant who usually closes on a Sunday but opened especially for us as we had just arrived in Cyprus. The family run restaurant is so traditional - all the food is fresh and a lot of it organic as is the local wine. The meze just keeps coming and coming - excellent value for the money. We truly feel we are on holiday with this lovely traditional restaurant - cant wait for next year ! As previous people have mentioned the Moussaka is fabulous - so light and not at all stodgy. Please do try this restaurant, believe me you wont be disappointed.

My hubby and I stopped her by chance when on holiday a few weeks ago. We had hired a buggy and were looking for somewhere to stop for lunch. What a find! It's a large restaurant but at 3pm we were the only people in there - but the friendly atmosphere and wonderful welcome was the same had they been packed out. Mattheos (owner) was a lovely guy - so friendly and genuinally pleased you were there. The food was wonderful - I had the tuna salad - a huge affair and so fresh. Hubby had a cheese and mushroom omelette and a side of chips - again a very generous portion. The potatoes are home grown and the chips were scrummy. At the end of the meal we were given a free sweet - a Cyprian dish (the name of which I unfortunately can't remember) and a plate of fresh fruit. Unfortunately we didn't get chance to go back again before our holiday ended but will head straight there next time!

We visit melania every year and it never disappoints. It is a lovely family run business and all the food is grown in the fields just outside the restaurant. The food is always lovely and the moussaka is one of the best around!! Matthew and Georgios are always very welcoming and friendly. Would definatley recommend melania for a lovely authentic Cypriot meal under the vines.

This was our local place and local food which was grown and all produced by the restaurant so the meals tasted great and also the wine was local. What a memory to come home with and flavours. The meze was fantastic.
