We returned to this restaurant a year on from our first visit and enjoyed the same high quality food and service. Authentic Cypriot cooking in authentic, spotlessly clean surroundings. The "5 dishes" meze is great value for money. We visited twice on this trip.

The opening vegetable dishes; salad, mushrooms, courgettes, and cauliflower were delectable. The moussaka...More
