By rule of thumb if its quiet in here, it'll be dead everywhere else ... Gary's Bar & Grill is without doubt one of the best eateries in Napa, recently awarded a Certificate of Excellence 2014, by Trip Advisor. It's famous for its full English breakfast with Absolute Radio piping out to the aroma of good old British bacon but they also have a great brunch, lunch, snacks and dinner menu.
Bursting at the seams with talent, one of my best friends ‘Xenis’, without doubt one of Cyprus’ best chefs, conjures his Cordon Bleu pub grub, from a huge menu including a kid’s choice, vegetarian selection and the best Sunday lunch ever … Completely international it’s a ‘must eat at’ place OK! … and remember he’s usually one step ahead of the competition !
Let's start by saying this is a fish lovers haven! ... the setting, is on the coast, with mature trees, casting shadows over pristine lawns, with scattered sun loungers and Hawaii style thatched umbrellas, sweeping down to the tiny sandy bay. Here and there, little alcoves of places to hide, some with sofas and others with hammocks to chill to the max. Off the restaurant, terraces with wooden decking overlooking a panoramic view of the med, and btw, this fish restaurant has been nominated for Time Out Fish Restaurants 2017 and I think they deserve it !"
Bursting at the seams with talent, one of my best friends 'Xenis', without doubt one of Cyprus' finest chefs, who passionately conjures up his Cordon Bleu pub grub, using only the freshest and finest ingredients from local suppliers and some grown in Xenis' personal allotments ... and btw Xenis likes to stay one step ahead of the competition 😉
The setting is as good as on the beach, it's a traditional village house with alcoves and arches edging the shaded patio out front, overlooking the beautiful Mediterranean sea. The ambience is relaxed outside and continues inside, with comfy lounge style sofas and 4 huge TV screens to watch all the live sports, there's a pool room with plenty of seating and two lovely open fires to keep your toes warm in the winter.
The Elements Bar & Lounge is the newly refurbished, new name, new era ... Earth, Wind, Fire, and Water ... Panicos says a change is as good as a holiday, I have to agree, he continued its going to be the home of the fifth element, 'Spirit' ... Always a warm and welcoming spirit, bars to the right now, so plenty of room to get into the spirit and boogie in the middle and more room to get to the spirits at the two bars ...
Literally on the quay, so you can paddle your toes in the sea and feed the fish, make use of the free Wifi as you sip your coffee, an ice cold beer, afternoon G'n'T or fresh Strawberry Daiquiri and arguably the best Margaritas you'll ever taste ... then savour the freshest Fish Meze on the harbour ... it really is a cut above the rest with panoramic views that stretch to Cape Greco especially at sunset, it's an explosion of colours ...
Nestled neatly between the Square, the Monastery, the middle of town and the nightlife is probably one of the biggest and most stylish venues in Cyprus ... Serving premium spirits, a delicious Snack Menu and specialising in freshly made Sushi ! By day it's pure chill out by night its pure party !
There's regular theme nights including Belly Dance Nights, and Fancy Dress Nights, so you'll find police officers and even witches ... Naturally, the girls will dance for you at your table and if you'd like something a little more private all you have to do is ask, who knows it might be your lucky night ?
