“Happy eating”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

Having eaten at Yianis' for many years we have never been disappointed. Everything is excellent you are made to feel welcome and at home even after 12 months gap.

“Another Kathikas Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

Kathikas is blessed with several good tavernas and restaurants and this is one of them. Although the menu hasn't changed since opening the food is always good and is one of our favourite eating places in Cyprus. We always enjoy seeing Yannis and his family and our winter visits by the log fire at the Akoursos table gives us that taverna feeling .
We will continue to visit every time we go to Cyprus.

“Best Meze - Yiannis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

We actually visited Yiannis' back in 2011, but was just recomending to a fiend so through I had better write a recomendation as well.

We were directed here by a local from Coral bay who thouroughly recomended it and I can say if you want to sample a very good traditional Meze out of town this is the place to go! There were 10 of us inc kids and the food just kept coming.
We ended up going there twice over our holiday it was amazing!

“Excellent atmosphere and great, authentic food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

Recommended to us and very glad that we followed up on it! Greeted by Yiannis, an affable host with the build of a front-row forward, we sat outside in the courtyard under vines growing gourds used for traditional storing of wine. The service was outstanding and the food (we had the meze of course) both excellent and plentiful - it just kept coming... by the time the chicken breast and lamb chops arrived, we were pretty much done - and there was still cheesecake and melon to follow! A superb evening and very reasonably priced - under €40 including drinks for two of us! Definitely one I'll be recommending and returning to.

“A lovely traditional Cypriot tavern in a quiet village.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012 via mobile

We came across Yiannis by chance when driving round the mountain villages and decided to take pot luck on a meal.

It was a wonderfully lucky choice! The setting was beautiful with the tables in a traditional courtyard. The service was friendly, prompt and attentive with Yiannis himself talking with all the tables. There were clearly many regulars there, both British ex-pats, those with holiday homes and locals, but as tourists we were made welcome.

We had the best beef stifafo we found anywhere in Cyprus and a delicious pork dish.

It was so good we booked to go back for the weekly Tuesday night of live music and dancing, which was as authentic and real as all the other taverns we visited were karaoke and artificial.

That evening the place was packed, mainly with locals filling the long communal tables. We had the meze which was excellent, the local village wine (for my wife as I was driving :( ) which was cheap and good. An evening that will live in the memory as the real Cyprus. Highly recommended!
