... with Aztec style features, neon paint everywhere and a sound system to blow your socks off ...
I met Flouris in his early days at Good Fortune Restaurant in Ayia Napa. Now in a prime position at the top of the strip in Protaras, son Andreas has joined the family business and together they make an awesome team, bringing you that traditional Cypriot hospitality that made Cyprus famous ... putting first class customer service as their number one priority !
Their menu is awesome, it changes as often as the seasons and as regular as the sun !
Situated just to the right of Ayia Napa Harbour, a little more serene, dining out front, inside, under the huge covered terrace or out back, shaded under umbrellas, overlooking the med ... it really is a perfect place to enjoy seafood delights and there's a huge pristine lawn and a play area for the kids with swings and things ...
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.
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.
One of the most popular bars in Protaras, staying open all year, it's British style with traditional Cypriot hospitality and great pub grub !
Linda cooks Michelin style, spending a little extra cash to assure all her ingredients are first class
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 😉
