This restaurant is not about neon lights and party. It is about a Greek experience, served by professional and friendly owners, in a restaurant built in what is claimed to be the oldest house in Ayia Napa.

I have been to Cyprus maybe 10 times, and the first time I was brought to Stamna by someone who had worked as a travel guide, because "you can't go to Napa and miss it". Every time since then I have been to Stamna once or twice every visit, usually one of those times I go for Meze and the other I pick lots of starters and then something traditional like Mousaka or Stifado...

I can't remember a single time when I was disappointed here, but keep in mind you go here for Greek stuff, I can't even remember if I tried anything more international here. =)

The bane of this restaurant, like for so many others in Ayia Napa, is the traffic outside, so if you are easily bothered by that, keep that in mind, as the place is fairly small and close to the road, but it has always worked fine for us.

Seating is usually outside, with fans to help keep visitors cool.

We walked by on our way to our "target" restaurant and looked at Stamna thinking- "Looks great", shame it is not on TripAdvisor as we could not find it there for some reason! Long and short - we didn't like the other place "feel" and came back... for our best pleasure! Great place! Great food! Great people! Great prices! The Meze are an overkill and yet a steal... We enjoyed the place- a lot and we'll be back! :)

My husband and I have been coming to this restaurant for over 30 years now and always receive the warmest of welcomes from Andreas and Tony and their lovely family. The food is - simply the best. Beautifully cooked with top quality local ingredients with a choice of some international dishes and traditional Cypriot fare. Good choice of wines and spirits too and reasonably priced. My very favourite on the menu is Shashlick pork, absolutely delicious but we have never been disappointed with anything we have ever ordered there. If you are feeling brave and have starved all day I would highly recommend the meze which is amazing and when we have it we lose count of all the dishes that keep coming to our table. We always get a little side 'taster'dish and after our meal a brandy or liqueur "on the house" - wonderful Cyprus hospitality which never fails to impress. My husband is disabled and Andreas helped him over the road to our hire car every night we came - very kind and caring. We also liked the newest addition to the family - Pambos who stands by the entrance looking very smart! Thank you Andreas and Tony for all the great times and delicious meals we have had at the Stamna and we can't wait to return. Absolutely superb!

We had a delicious meal in a relaxed genuine atmosphere. We had the Meze (a selection of 20 local dishes) for two people and it was great. Save some room for last as it is lots of food and the plates kept coming long after we were full. A bottle of Retsina completed the meal. I highly recommend Stamna Tavern.
