I've been to the Peyia Tavern umpteen times and will still go back umpteen more. The service is personable, food is great, local wine is so drinkable. Michael and his sons remember you out of hundreds that go there every week. Cannot fault this place.

Simple really. The food is fresh good value and so tasty. The owner is good fun and makes you feel welcome. This is by far the best restaurant in the area and would highly recommend the pork chops.

Just had a lovely meal at Peyia Tavern at a friend’s recommendation. Halloumi in particular was delicious. Great service. Nice wine. A beer, bottle of wine and two mezze, €41. Good value!

“Peyia Tavern” is a family restaurant and is highly recommended, here you will have the opportunity to sample the “Traditional Special Meat Meze”, great dish for the meat lovers. The meat is cooked in the traditional Cypriot way (on the charcoal). The Special Meze is served one dish at a time by the Taverna staff which are family members. Be careful not to over face yourself with the bread, salad, dips and pourgouri (traditional couscous) which is served as an appetiser prior to the meat dishes. Also the taverna serves traditional dishes like "Halloumi", "Sieftalia" and "Stifado".
