“Highly recommended”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

My family and I stayed in Protaras in August 13 and tried many of the various restaurants in the area, our favourite (by some way) was Parko.

Eating outside is always pleasurable when the weather is good, but the fact that the restaurant was a little 'off the road' was more than helpful as some of the other restaurants were right by the pavement (people staring into my plate when eating is always a little off-putting).

We were seater quickly and efficiently by smart and well trained staff. Drinks were offered promptly and you were able to 'settle' in a good atmosphere. Our waiter was friendly but not too familiar (the kids liked him after he made comments about how smart they looked).

We ordered and were asked a couple of times if we wanted our glasses refreshed. The entree arrived promptly and immediately afterward we were asked if we wanted to wait (a bit longer) for our mains were for arrive.
The food arrived hot and looked great - it was clearly fresh and was very tasty.
The kids had dessert and we were offered coffee / brandy.

If I am honest, I expected a sizeable bill (due to location, decor, food and quality of the wine), but was taken aback on how well priced it was (about €50 for a family of four).
Needless to say we ate there a couple more times, including our last meal.

I don't normally complete reviews for restaurants, but I'm happy to make an exception in this case.
Highly recommended!

“Maria + George 5*”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

With the welcoming reception that you get from Maria and the fantastic food that George presents it was a pleasure to eat at " Parko ", some of our group rated the Fillet Steak as the best that they had ever had, cooked to perfection.
Lunch was a favorite of mine, each day the Salads were superb, best for myself was the Special Chicken / Bacon salad served with fresh cooked Chips and freshly squeezed Orange juice served to you by the ever smiling Maria who was great entertainment.

" Parko " has My vote for sure, and just for a bit of fun when Maria clears your Table tell her that it was Rubbish !, then watch that Smile, 1st class.

“Excellent Restaurant and Friendly Staff!!”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

We ate at the Parko Restaurant near enough every day for breakfast and lunch. The food there is beautifully made with fresh ingredients and tasted wonderful , it was always hot when it reached us. The waitress Maria gave excellent service every day with a beautiful smile and made the atmosphere feel really warm, friendly and welcoming. Would recommend this to anyone who wishes to have an enjoyable time because we certainly did!! Would go back there again in the near future.
