Carlton, Heidi, Wendy and little Aston. We had the best time here.
This restaurant is perfection itself. We could not fault it in any way.
The food was of the highest quality and the staff could not have been more attentive and helpful.Cleanliness was of the highest standard. It must be the BEST RESTAURANT in Cyprus.
We were always greeted so warmly and Astons' high chair was at the table ready for us, he particularly "fell in love" with one of the pretty blond waitresses and had to kiss all the staff good-night.Thank you all for your wonderful meals and hospitality.

We usually stay in Paralimni for a week or so each summer, and seeing the reviews of Folio here, we decided to pay a visit - we were not disappointed!

We were given a warm welcome by our host, and seated at a comfortable table outside.

We didn't order a starter, and it wasn't really necessary in our case (we are not big eaters); they provided a small coffee cup of potato soup with our bread. Very tasty and filling enough.

For mains, we had the cockerel and the polo mascerpone. Good sized portions, and professionally presented.

We didn't drink alcohol on our visit, but I would agree with some other reviews on the wine list - we'd expect it to be a bit bigger. Also, the cheapest was about 16 Euros so quite a high mark-up. Not really a critisism but something they could improve on.

The service was excellent, and we'll no doubt take some friends for a bigger meal next year!

We were staying in a villa nearby this restaurant and happened to walk past one night. We decided to treat ourselves on the last night as the menu looked amazing. Best decision we made all holiday!

The starters were the best and definatly up there will all the other fine dining restaurants i have been too. I had Palma ham wrapped in goats cheese and my friend had steak with fois gras, both were really good.

The main courses were so hard to choose as they all looked good and in the end i chose seabass and prawn which was tasty. The only down fall was that the sea bass skin wasnt crispy enough so not as good as it could have been. The service was a better class then the other Cyprus restaurants and they even gave us a free bottle of wine perfect :)

Overall i would defo recommend for everyone visiting nearby to try this restaurant. We found the food to be expensive in Cyprus and pretty mediocre so i would rather spend a bit more and get a great meal with a great atmosphere away from the kareoke bars!!!

I have re-visited this restaurant again now, in February 2011. The previous time i was there was in August 2010. Also for this visit i have to say that everything was excellent. The menu has been updated with new and brilliant food ideas while staff remains as enthusiastic as before.

The only fault i can find this time is the wine list. It is really short for such an excellent menu. But the wines that are listed are really smartly selected and this outbalance the "quantity" problem.

I hope to continue in these high levels since the major problem in Cyprus restaurants is that they usually start very good and after 2-3 years of successful operation they start descending.
