we have read all of the reviews and decided to give it a try, in defence of the tavern we did not order Greek food.... but t bone steaks, they were frozen and so salted they were almost inedible

Our daughter is pregnant and held her ‘gender reveal’ party there. Once again, they did not disappoint! They went out of their way to make the taverna exactly how we wanted, and even though it was a new idea to them (and us), everyone said...More

Food was bbq and first class, knocking spots off every other similar establishment in the area. Absolutely scrumptious! Pork melted in the mouth and chicken crunchy outside and moist inside. The whole family extended a very warm welcome and provided the most delicious Greek salad....More

We've visited here at least once a year for the last 4 years whilst on holiday. Family run restaurant, excellent home cooked food and very friendly staff. We've always been made to feel very welcome. The moussaka is recommended. We'll definitely be visiting here again...More

Couldn't comment on the vegetarian issue. Would suggest you ring them first. It's a family run taverna and they are very helpful and the food is plentiful.

Hi, I think they close after lunch at 3pm and open again for dinner. I don't know what days I am afraid.

A simple traditional taverna, family run, with no gourmet elements, as that would contradict the whole concept, in a village setting and beautiful gardens. My mum prepares the food with lots of love and the rest of us make sure it is served to you properly and on time! The presentation is simple as well, as my father wants, although my mother would love to show off a bit more of her skills:) However and most importantly, it is genuinely Cypriot!We have had the taverna since 1990 and during the years we have made a lot of wonderful friends and shared with them beautiful moments, wedding and christening parties, anniversaries and birthday parties. That is the best part of the story!So, after writing a whole essay I realise I could just describe it with one single sentence: A family-run tavern who loves Cypriot food and enjoys serving its visitors!Thank you for taking the time to read it!
