Cypriot

Tony’s Tavern & Fun Land, Kapparis

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

Ayia Thekla Open Air Market, Ayia Napa

With over 50 stalls in the summer there's everything you'd expect from a thriving market, from a variety of bric-a-brac, souvenirs, hand made pottery, household goods, I.T Services and computer stuff.  There's shoes, new and second hand clothes, accessories, cafes and food stalls and even Grimsby's Smokey Pete's Van selling traditional English fish imported from Grimsby of course!  Pete has been in the trade over 35 years and specialises in Smoked Haddock, smoked the traditional way in Oak Sawdust ... the aroma is awesome!

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 ...

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 ...

Aeyialos Fish Restaurant & Beach Bar, Pernera, Protaras

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 !"

Terrazza Restaurant & Lounge Bar, Ayia Napa

Again outside, and attached to the restaurant, my Favourite Place, a wonderful lounge bar, a sort of posh beer garden, in parts covered Gazebos, up high lovely sails with bits left al' fresco, aka under the stars ... Here you can enjoy, drinks from the garden bar, and finger foods, Pizzas, maybe add an exotic flavour, chilled appropriately and shared with friends, coz in this ambience it's well cool, and I just have to say the setting around the centre seating area adorned with cool architectural lighting is stunning, to say the least, and they didn't cut back on comfort here!

Markos Fish Tavern, Ayia Napa

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 ...

Ttappis Tavern, Paralimni

... it's almost inevitable that this place goes from home dining to partying like only the Cypriots know how!

Kalamies Restaurant Café Snack Bar, Pernera

Nestled on the wonderful Kalamies Beach in Pernera, this spacious family run restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  This truly is a first class eaterie, continuing to provide traditional freshly cooked Cypriot cuisine served with pure Cypriot hospitality for almost forty years ...

360° Lounge Bar, Ayia Napa

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 !
