I always visit this Restaurant when in Protaras. Went last night and had the Kleftico it was beautiful. We always get free bread free fruit and a free drink. Anyone looking for a traditional Cypriot restaurant you must try this one.

As we walked passed we saw a few people having lunch so went onto trip advisor to check what it's like. Good reviews so we decided to go. Thankfully we did. We arrived and... More
