This is possibly the best mixed grill I have had In a long time. The meats were very tasty and the veg and mash that accompanied the meal were great. My wife had the suckling pig which obviously I tried and it was fantastic the meat just fell away from the bone. The crackling was very crisp. With a couple... More

Went to this restaurant at the end of November 2016 and it was fantastic. I had the mushrooms to start and my partner had the calamari, we then went on to have the suckling pig (my husband said was to die for) and I had the stifado, the beef melted! All dishes were cooked to perfection but would say portion... More

Based on the TA reviews we wanted to eat at this restaurant in July, but the night we attempted they were closed, and consequently we had a most disappointing meal at Chloe's, the attractive fronted Chinese restaurant a few doors down. This Sunday evening was very quiet and we were their first customers. They made us very welcome, and we... More

Having eaten traditional meze at a number of restaurants during our holiday this is one of the best. A modern take on a traditional dish. Beautifully presented, tasty and dish after dish just kept on coming. The homemade semolina orange cake was also lovely. The staff are excellent, attentive but not intrusive. Our waiter (can't remember his name, Armenian Cypriot... More

Toilets are not only clean but modern. Between July and August, 3 visits. Menu is good and offers a good choice of different dishes. Love the hot rolls, potions... More

Sometimes you find a restaurant accidentally that turns out to be a real gem. Gourmet Taverna is one of them. They offer other choices than the standard Cypriot menu. We had a starter and a main and they were all delicious and had surprising and tasteful combinations. Staff was very friendly and was checking all the time if the guests... More
