“Superb evening”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Our first time at Yiannis - it was buffet evening with local dancers. The food was excellent and being a buffet, you can go back to the food bar as often as wish. The service was first class and the entertainment extremely good fun. Oh - nearly forgot - you get free Greek lessons from the owner!

Can't wait to go back there on my next trip to Cyprus.

“Lunch in Kathikas”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

Prompt service, very good food, well presented, in a very relaxing atmosphere. There is an area to park cars and the al fresco dining area is at the rear - well away from the through village traffic.

“Great Taverna”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

Great Taverna which we visit regularly. The food is always varied and enjoyable and a very reasonable price too. Yiannis is a great host, and the staff are very attentive. Tuesday nights this summer is a buffet night with traditional Cypriot music and dancing. If you are a holiday maker or even a resident I can guarantee you will enjoy this.

“Rushed and nothing special”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

We went when they had a coach party in, weren't offered an drink before our meal, we're rushed through and the staff were then surprised that we asked for the bill. Moussaka was very disappointing.

“Lovely restaurant”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

We visited Yiannis Tavern twice when we stayed in Peyia. We enjoyed the food so much the first time, we booked for the Greek evening where the buffet is 15 Euros a head.

The food was wonderful, all the salads you could think of, followed by meat and vegetable dishes and finishing off with some lovely deserts.

After the food, there is a display of Greek dancing and lots of audience participation. I can honestly say it was the best evening of our holiday and if we ever go back to the area, this restaurant is definitely one we will revisit.
