Knights Pub & Restaurant, Pernera

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 ;)

Kota Greek Souvlaki, Ayia Napa

Chris, who has over 30 years experience in the hospitality industry said he wanted to open a place that offers low cost, tasty, good quality food, Greek style ... please note; Greek not Cypriot, cos this is authentic Greek leaning towards Cypriot and even the Pittas are imported from Greece ! Chris told me , ''They use only the freshest ingredients, cooking to order, which gives their dishes that extra bit of quality'' ! oh, and I love the cool variation of fresh herbs in each table !

Only Fools & Horses Pub, Pernera

... we had to go with the times and old TV programs got dropped and we started a little entertainment and the pub matured, signs and blackboards every where and pretty much the same crowd would come in, a mix of young guests and the more mature lot who still remember the show ... and their popularity grew even more when the snack menu changed into a real pub grub menu ...

Speedy Gonzales Mexican Bar & Restaurant, Pernera

... let me explain, here the Mexican food isn't hot, it's refreshing, in fact, you can request your selection to your taste, so everyone is happy.  The chef is of course Mexican with over 12 years experience, his specialities are the Burritos, Chimichanga, and an array of Fajitas ... but the menu is huge so you'll find it hard to choose, all served by the drop dead gorgeous scandi crew ... who'll serenade you on your birthday using the kitchen utensils as instruments ... it's just brilliant !

Blue Spice Restaurant Art Gallery, Pernera

It's a family run restaurant, at the helm Frixos is an awesome host gifting traditional Cypriot hospitality like no other ... Partner and Head Chef 'Savvas' says he likes a happy kitchen, that way you'll get food served with passion ... always looking for new recipes, this Chef trained in Germany for ten years, 2 in France, 2 in Italy, so he is truly international in experience and compliments that with ten international chefs ... including a Silver Needle Sous Chef from Thessaloniki, Greece ...

Love Boat Cocktail Bar, Protaras

... the kitchen serves a Full English Breakfast or just Scrambled Eggs on Toast, home made Burgers, home made Pizzas, Pukka Pies, Omelettes, Salads, Grills with delicious Chicken breast, Huge Pork Chops and even your favourite Toasties.  There's something for everyone including a separate Children's Menu ... and if you like to share try one of their delicious Meat Platters for two ...

Traveller’s Baronesa Dance Bar, Ayia Napa

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 ?

Sirena Bay Beach Bar & Restaurant

... some with a cultural twist, tbh these days, at Sirena Bay, you should expect the unexpected !

Bells Cocktail Bar, Protaras

By night it's best described as a Pre-Club Party Bar, a wicked sound system, lights and smoke n all so be warned you might not make it to the club coz this lot party every night ... Resident and Guest DJ's through the season, the music, playing a cool mix of House, R'n'B, and Classic Party tunes and MC's that'll get you up on your feet and you'll be dancing on the podiums and well, anywhere you wanna ...

Bedrock Inn, Ayia Napa

At the end of every night, when the music dies in all the other bars, they go into Silent Disco Clubbing Mode ... on goes the headphones, choose what music you wanna listen to and you can sing as loud as you wanna and no one can hear you ;) ... It's a must for a good laugh every night ... just check everyone singing up on the dance podiums.
