“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2013

Have been to Polis many times in the last 10 years and had never tried this restaurant we visited on Friday 15th November and had an excellent meal and the service was first class - I had the spring rolls with honey and chilli sauce and can assure you the sauce was home made as stated before. Husband had patridge ravioli and he thought it was amazing, excellent value for money and it rounded off our visit to Cyprus perfectly.

The discussion regarding my chilli sauce rumbles on. As you state it is indeed homemade and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Polis

“The Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013

We try to eat here at least twice a week when we're in Polis/Latchi. It's a good candidate for the "Best Restaurant in Cyprus" -- you only have to check on the distance that Cypriots travel to eat here -- and it definitely gets our vote. Superb service from Kostas and Teddy and delicious food from Vangelis (Evangelos) are just part of the experience. The garden is a lovely place to eat and drink and, when the weather gets colder, the indoor room with the fire in the corner is most welcoming.

“Good enough- pricier than most”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2013

Excellent quality food, though pricey. Great athomsphere and lovely garen, though too cold to sit outside when we visited. Missed the personal touch we experienced in other local restaurants.

Thank you for taking the time to write about us.
Sorry for not making you feel welcome enough
Probably we where short staff due to the end of
The season,in the future we will try our best to
give enough attention to our guests
About being pricier than most,is the little
Extra you paying for top quality.

“Best in polis. But still no high flyer”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013 via mobile

Not the typical polis tourist trap. They do their best to be above average. Still you feel amateurism. You DON't serve spring spring Rolls with Chili sauce that comes out of a jar!
The steak was pretty good. Nicely grilled.

Thank you very much for your review,
I always like criticism ... because it makes us
better .. but sometimes it makes me feel so sad
because is so unfair to make a review on trip advisor
and say we are amateurs because we used sauce for
the spring rolls from a bottle ...somebody could
just say I didn't like the sauce that's fair enough...
So if anyone is interested on our recipe for the spring roll sauce please
email us and we will be very happy to send it to you
if is similar to ready sauce from a bottle ...sorry..,
But any way some very nice products they
come in bottles...

“Delicious food in beautiful restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2013 via mobile

We ate dinner here on a Saturday night in November. Read reviews it was 'fine dining'. I didn't think so; although it is more formal than the other restaurants in Polis, its pretty relaxed (we're staying at the Anassa to put this comment into perspective).

Portions decent size and totally delicious. Fresh homemade pitta bread a nice touch. My husband said the slow cooked lamb was the nicest lamb he has ever had (& that's saying something given we've been to New Zealand!). The herb crusted salmon I had was very tasty, as were the accompanying vegetables and potatoes.

Definitely recommend a visit.
