International

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 ...

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!

Il Cavaliere Italian Ristorante, Pernera

Situated in Pernera, just of the main strip 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 choice of staff down to the wine bottle holders ...

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 😉

Kamasias Taverna, Paralimni

... they call them seasonal 'Rain Gifts', and this is where this place excels ... because this Tony and the family are dedicated to bringing you the freshest and most sought after wild Cypriot produce, like baby wild Artichokes, Snails, fresh Asparagus, and a regular trip to Paphos to find rare Wild Mushrooms, is all part of the norm, Tony often walking 15 to 25 km a day to bring you the best selection that night ... needless to say if you like wild Mushrooms omg, this place is a must !!!

Love Boat Cocktail Bar, Protaras

Love Boat ... was totally renovated for 2015 and it's looking amazing ... a mix of the old style Love Boat with a modern touch and it's probably the biggest bar in cyprus spanning 1400 sq mtrs, and definitely one of the best by far. They've really splashed out adding party lighting and an awesome sound system ...

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!

Speedy’s in Salsa Mode !

An evening of Live Salsa Music, ... to, Eat Drink and dance your hearts out !

Wokiwok Asian & Sushi Bar, Paralimni

George says ''expect to find an awesome selection of spicy food, coz the boss loves it spicy!'' ... but by 'spicy' he doesn't mean hot hot, he means full of flavours of the East, some mild, some medium and many that give a kick ... Everything is cooked to order, using freshly cut local vegetables and the finest cuts of meat, and seafood and imported ingredients from the East ... Then three top Chefs conjure up an extensive selection of Asian cuisines from, China, Thailand, Korea and Japan and of course Sushi
