Great home produced food most of which comes from their own gardens. The bits that don't seem to have been produced by a cousin! Why do you always find the best restaurant on the last night! Very family orientated and lots of choice. Mr Moustache was 2nd in the Cyprus shooting championships so don't do a runner!!!

Having visited this taverna for well over 25 years I have been amazed at the price of food here where it brags of home grown food. Shouldn't this be less expensive than other places who buy it in? Peanut butter sandwich at 4 euros and toast at the same price with home grown olive oil, this is free at many... More

Our best meal in Cyprus! Sitting under the amazing vine canopy, homegrown and home cooked authentic food - a great evening. In fact we went back again so we could work our way through more of the menu. Moussaka is delicious - and enormous! Gilt fish absolutely gorgeous too. Homegrown veg and local wine, welcoming hosts (check out that moustache!)... More
