Description: “The Village Restaurant” in Platres belongs to Agi Jacovides, the owner of Semiramis Hotel. I was amazed with the delicious cuisine of Agi and he was telling me that he is cooking everything by himself only. Nobody else helps in the kitchen. He is very passionate with his cooking which he learned from his Mother he said. One can find mostly Traditional Cypriot cuisine here and from what I found out from the little chat I had with other people, everyone likes it here. Prices are affordable and portions quite big. From what I have seen the Restaurant is very popular both with Cypriots who come to Platres by coaches and the restaurant is full each day, but also it is popular with tourists who come to Platres and enjoy his Cypriot cuisine. Mousaka costs 10 euro, Kalamari (squid) 8.50, Steak port chop 7.50, Koupepia –stuffed vine leaves 9 euro. A beer will cost you 2.50 euro and a carafe of wine 75ml costs 7.50 euro. I found the prices reasonable, and because everything used here is freshly cut I can strongly recommend it. Agi will do his best to have his customers happy. The view from the Restaurant is panoramic, but the inside décor is also great.

“Very welcoming, traditional Cypriot tavern with beautiful views across the mountains to Limassol.”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Having had a glass of wine in the Village Tavern we looked at Skylight because of the reviews but the view was poor and the number of tables hinted at a step away from the unobtrusive but personal atmosphere we'd just experienced, so we went back. We are so glad we did. The food was delicious; we shared tavas (slow cooked lamb) and koupepia (stuffed vine leaves), both the best we've tasted during our holiday. The restaurant owner had a very busy lunch time, as we'd seen on our drive past on the way for a walk up to the Kaledonia Falls, so was going to close early for the evening, but stayed open when we came back. We are very thankful he did, our meal in the Village Tavern was the perfect end to a lovely day.

“Tasteless food, moderate service”
Reviewed January 30, 2012

Went to this place as part of an organized tour through the troodos. Looked promising, but food was charmless, and many dishes not available. I got the moussaka which was lukewarm, bland and pre-cooked. Restaurant was very cold, with only one small stove in centre of the room. Bread for the table was stale, and accompanied by margarine. Service was basic, and the minute a friend of the owner came in, we became second class citizens. Go find somewhere else to go. The food in Cyprus is too good to waste on this place.
