Our first time visit here, one of those places we kept saying we must try out. It seems we have been missing some good home cooking! I had fresh fish which was delicious, my partner had lamb chops, equally lovely. Very good village wine. Delicious...More

We understood how good the place is when we stopped for lunch and were told that lunch won't be served as they had a very late dinner and since the food is fresh it will take time to prepare. So we came back for dinner...More

Hi, I think they close after lunch at 3pm and open again for dinner. I don't know what days I am afraid.

A simple traditional taverna, family run, with no gourmet elements, as that would contradict the whole concept, in a village setting and beautiful gardens. My mum prepares the food with lots of love and the rest of us make sure it is served to you properly and on time! The presentation is simple as well, as my father wants, although my mother would love to show off a bit more of her skills:) However and most importantly, it is genuinely Cypriot!We have had the taverna since 1990 and during the years we have made a lot of wonderful friends and shared with them beautiful moments, wedding and christening parties, anniversaries and birthday parties. That is the best part of the story!So, after writing a whole essay I realise I could just describe it with one single sentence: A family-run tavern who loves Cypriot food and enjoys serving its visitors!Thank you for taking the time to read it!
