I highly recommend this restaurant for traditional Cypriot food. It is where locals eat and even in November when we were there it was packed, seating us outside (under a heater). The food was plentiful and delicious. We will definitely return.

We enjoyed our dinner sitting on the terrace, looked after by attentive staff. A basket of bread arrived with butter, warm and tasty, which we enjoyed while waiting fir our main course. We also tried their home made houllumi, which was excellent. My husband had the rabbit stew which was tender and tasty, served with a plate of chips. I... More

Visited this restaurant after reading the trip advisor reviews and passing it on our travels where we thought the setting was beautiful. It's exactly what you dream a Cypriot taverna would be, vine covered outdoors of a classic old Cypriot building. The place was busy on the Thursday we visited and we only got a table thanks to turning up... More

Came highly recommended and did not disappoint. We had not booked but were welcomed and seated in the arched patio, not just stuck in a corner. We must have been lucky as the taverna filled rapidly underlinig how popular this eatery is. Little bit of a wait for the main course but forgiveable considering how busy they were. The whole...

Lovely food, beautifully cooked. This meza restaurant was well worth the taxi drive inland from Ayia Napa. Each dish was excellent - apart from the snails which I decided not to try! There are alternatives. The food just kept coming and probably the mini-meza option would have been better as by the time the meat course arrived I just couldn't... More

A group of us went while staying in Kapparis - book if you dont want to be disappointed, I have never seen an empty table whilst eating here. Best Meze in the East of the Island in my opinion - four of our party of six had meze whilst the other two picked dishes from the menu and these were... More
