This place lives up to the hype. We visited on a Monday when many other places in Cyprus are closed. We tried a range of Cypriot and international dishes and all were very, very good. Highlights included a delicious chicken liver pate, stifado stew, moussaka and Cypriot grilled lamb chops. We indulged in a scrumptious chocolate cake and a lemon sorbet for dessert. Worth blowing the diet for either of these! Helpful, friendly staff round out a high quality experience.

My husband and I made the 10-15 minute car journey from Peyia to visit this restaurant after a recommendation from fellow travellers staying at our apartments. They had all enjoyed the Chinese/Thai buffet here earlier in the week and we must thank them, as we were very pleased with this decision. It was worth the drive to Kathikas which although dark, seemed a very small quaint village. It is right up in the hills so it was a bit chillier than where we were staying so maybe take a cardigan of some sort if wanting to sit outside. We sat inside and it was very nice, quite a traditional Cypriot feel. Plenty of choice on the menu. They do the usual dishes on offer in a Tavern but also some Chinese and Thai options. We were brought some free bread and dips which we enjoyed, loved the garlic butter. Nice touch as we didn't find a great deal of this on the holiday. We stuck with tradition and ordered the vegetarian aubergine dish to share as a starter, which the friendly waitress kindly let us order even though it was technically a main dish on the menu. We both thoroughly enjoyed this and waited for our main, which was the fillet steak with pepper sauce and the rosemary pork fillet. Both came looking and tasting great. Even the vegetable accompaniments (including a lovely cauliflower cheese) were spot on. We finished off the meal with lovely refreshing lemon and strawberry sorbet, only €1 per scoop, and they were big scoops!
Overall this place has a great atmosphere, lovely food and friendly staff. Would recommend.

Been in a villa about 5km from Kathikas up on the hillside and decided to go hunt down a Taverna, we have passed through Kathikas every day and didn't like the look of the Farmyard as it seemed too lively with look a like singers so have given it a miss until tonight. How wrong first impressions can be, the Farmyard Taverna is excellent, it was a quiet Sunday night and the atmosphere and service was excellent but the food was fantastic, we decided not to have a starter and thankfully so especially when my main course of Large Pork Chop turned up, it was huge and that is not an exaggeration the vegetables couldn't fit on the plate. The kids had spare ribs which where also huge and my wife had the stuffed aubergine which in her words was heaven. There was really no room for a pudding but as most Cypriot tavernas give melon at the end of a meal the Farmyard give a vanilla mouse which tasted amazing. Overall with 1 large beer and 3 soft drinks and large bottle of water the bill came to 59 euro, this is the cheapest taverna we gave eaten in si far. Tge chef came out to the table at the end of the meal to ensure it was enjoyed, nice touch and we could only compliment him.
There was no pressure to push you out as soon as you've eaten, it is Sunday so it may have been a quiet night but overall we as a family give the farmyard 9 out of 10

Treated to a meal here by my parents. A bit more upmarket than the usual tavernas in Cyprus - cutlery, wine glass, napkins etc all laid out on arrival. Five of us had a lovely meal, including starters, greek salad, spring rolls, halloumi, dips etc and mains including salmon, t-bone and fillet steaks. Lovely accompaniments of mash potatoe, brocolli, carrots and cauliflower cheese. It is not cheap, but worth the extra. Would certainly go again next time I am over.

The Farmyard was recommended to us for a beautiful meal and it delivered! We went on a Saturday evening and a very pleasurable experience it was. The food and service was excellent, the chef came to the table to check if everything was ok (nice touch). We will be going back before the end of our holiday.
