Been there with family and it was as my parents and siblings recalled as good as always (been here last time 11 years ago). I took the sushi as recommended by another traveller, but completely underestimated it’s size (I’m used to Zurich’s overpriced micro sushi)....More

We visited Hippocampus 3 times in the same week. Lovely food & by far the best coffee in Cyprus! We will be back in July.

Visited the hippocampus lounge for lunch and was not disappointed one bit. Food was excellent so fresh and cooked from scratch. We couldn't believe how good the food was, and how good the service was for how reasonably priced everything was. Will definitely be back.

Ate at a variety of restaurants on our stay, but always ended up at Hippo for coffee. Staff brilliant - after our second visit, didn't need to order, just confirmed "The Usual" and coffee appeared. Fantastic service.

This is one of the nicer restaurants in Protaras. It was absolutely packed out when we went so might be advisable to book. Good menu, including sushi, slightly more upmarket than other restaurants. It was full of Cypriots - always a good sign.
