Cafes

Olympus Restaurant, Protaras

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 !

Tipsy Turtle, Your Friendly Local, Pernera

I loved this place the moment I saw the name, ... It's a British Style pub, from the outside all white and doors, really cool signage and some comfy seating to enjoy a drink in the late sunny afternoons and watch the world go by, hanging baskets and signs, inside, pristine, all wood and red brick, spacious with comfy seating, over to the right a separate games area, with pool table, and regular Killer Pool and darts board and they are just about to start a team and a Bar Football table ... both Pool and Darts have winter leagues, so go ask if you can join the team or maybe add one?

Tony’s Tavern & Fun Land, Kapparis

... so, if the kids are complaining they're bored, get ready to satisfy their thirst for fun!

Mr. Souvlaki, Pernera

When the boys called me to tell me they're opening a traditional BBQ shack in Pernera, I was excited to say the least ... you know, there's absolutely nothing like a traditional Cypriot Kebab, it's almost indigenous to Cyprus. That forgettable aroma of fresh pork or chicken, finely dusted with oregano and sea salt, slowly cooking over real wood charcoals is unforgettable, and the flavours at Mr. Soulvlaki are tantalising to say the least ...

Blue Spice Restaurant & Art Gallery, Pernera

It's a mini resort, with a spacious area boasting a large swimming pool and cafe-style pool bar, surrounded by mature trees, delicious green lawn, palm sun shades, canvas sails, and a lovely ambiance in a truly wonderful setting with free sunbeds and free WiFi ... and there's nightly entertainment in the gardens throughout the summer ... and they only close for January ...

Il Cavaliere Italian Mediterranean Ristorante, Pernera

Situated in Pernera, on the main strip, just off the fork, excuse the pun, you’ll find one of the finest Italian restaurants this side of Italy! I've known Sotiris the owner, since he opened but he's been in the business for many more years and trust me, it doesn’t go unnoticed! Everything is finely tuned from his menu to his choice of staff, right down to the wine bottle holders, brilliant!

Misohoro Taverna, Dherynia

They called it 'MisoHoro', as it in the centre of the village, I always thought it meant Half a Dance ? ... ha! when you leave here you'll only just about be able to walk 😉

Bakery Europe, Paralimni

... Inside you will find everything you would expect from a bakery including milk, fresh breads, Bulgarian and Cypriot pastries, Croissants, Bulgarian Sausage Rolls, amongst other sweet and savory goodies ...

Cape Bar, Cape Greco

Cape Bar is a family bar with a friendly family atmosphere ...it's situated near Cyclops Caves, on the edge of the National Park at Konnos Bay, Cape Greco.  It's one of my favourite areas in Cyprus, this is a great place to watch the beautiful sunset.

Mood’z Bar & Restaurant, Paralimni

Taking over the aptly named Din Dins, in June 2018, Glen, Debbie and Sharon had some really cool plans, and it's obvious they got it right, from the start!  Opening this family bar and restaurant, with comfy seating, both outside on the covered decking, edged with potted plants or inside, where you'll immediately notice a really friendly atmosphere, so the idea is, there's no rush if you're eating, and if you're not hungry you can just chill with a drink and soak up the atmosphere, quite unique, and on that note, the impulse banter between this crew in full flow is just awesome ...
