... Let's say Dr. Feelgoods Beach Bar Ethics were spot on and Zilly smashed it, everybody loved him and I've just had good news that he'll be there every Saturday afternoon through the Summer ...
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 !
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 😉
It's a pub with British style pub, with an international clientele, an awesome crew, a relaxed ambience, and a great place to eat traditional pub grub with a twist oh, and an awesome place to watch all the live sports ... It's like home from home even if you're on your own! ... What else do you need from a pub? Your favourite tipple, they've probably got it!
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.
"it's a traditional Cypriot Meze House with an International twist" ... "It's not just lot's of meat, it's seasonal, the BBQ Souvlaki and selected meats come with grilled vegetables, black eye beans and salads and just seems to keep coming, usually about 23 dishes" he laughed, "we normally get asked to stop serving" oh btw just wait 'til you taste their specialty house bread, home made with herb infused olive oil then grilled over real charcoal and served to compliment tantalizing starter salads and dips.
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 ...
The bar is open from 9 am to 2 am, so you can pop in for breakfast, brunch, lunch, gorgeous coffees in the afternoon with a naughty slice of cake, maybe a romantic dinner for two, or just evening drinks and a catch up with friends, whichever you choose, this is an awesome place to go. They provide a great menu from their hearty breakfasts to amazing platters or grilled main meals to amazing homemade desserts.
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 ...
Koulla invited me to try their fish platter on their weekly Cyprus Night with a traditional Cypriot dance group ... I'm so glad I went there hungry because the fish platter was big ... Their Greek dancing just awesome, traditional, right down to the famous glass tower dance, this guy is amazing, and when they get everyone up to join in its totally unique because of this perfect location, outside, with the little church there and all of harbour approach is your dance floor with many passer-byes stopping to see what's on ... brilliant! btw it every Wednesday night
