Nothing to say apart from AMAZING The owners ( Family ) are the best! All foods wherever you have the Meze or normal food is ALWAYS nice and fresh. The village of Kouklia is a proper Cypriot Village away from your normal tourist hotspots ....More

Whenever I'm in Kouklia, I always make a beeline for Efraim's. Good (keenly priced) food, excellent cocktails and a traditional village feel. Well worth a visit.
