We have just returned from our annual visit to Cyprus and, to our shame, although we have explored extensively, this was our first visit to the Argaka area and it was pure luck that we found this little jewel of a bar/restaurant. The welcome was friendly and helpful but not falsely effusive, important to me as I am disabled. The... More

We visited this restaurant in early November and were very pleased with the surroundings and the service and the food was delightful, very tasty and plenty of it. Lots of places had closed at the end of October but this was a good find, well worth a visit if your in the area.

The fact it has a mix of inside, outside covered, and on the grass, makes it a nice setting – and the 4-5 steps down to the beach and a handful of sunbeds all made this a venue we came back to several times on our holiday. It’s... More

Lovely place for just a drink or food. It is right next to the beach so you get a lovely sea breeze. They do lovely omelettes, very tasty. The staff are so friendly The main building is just across the road so if the weather is not so good you can eat in there. In winter they have a log... More

Having heard Paul Hollywood rave about the food at this place, we took a drive there whilst at Coral Bay. Great location, tranquil setting, enjoyed a drink with my family, followed by a nice meal. Food was tasty and simple. Service was good.

St Barbara's has been turned around considerably by the new management Andrea & George and it shows the pair know how to run a busy restaurant/bar. A very warm welcome greets you by all the staff. Perfect beach location fantastic sunsets to drink a well made cocktail at a reasonable price. The food good sized portions and tasty. Can highly... More

Drink some cocktails here and they were good. The personal was friendly. Not to expensive. The bar is 10m from the sea so the view is really nice
