We went here on our first night because it literally is a hop skip and a jump from our hotel and the good reviews on trip advisor in relation especially to the large chops. Yes the waiter is the only front of house so does a good job on his own and yes it does depend on how busy they... More

Good choice as all the dishes were delicious. It was also very busy with customers being advised it could be about a 45-50 minute... More

We came here on an evening, it was the best food I have had in Cyprus! The owner was lovely and even offered to change my sons meal because he didn't like it! Great value for money because the portions are huge! We are back in Cyprus next June and this is on our list once again to go to.
