International

Knights Pub & Restaurant, Pernera

Bursting at the seams with talent, one of my best friends ‘Xenis’, without doubt one of Cyprus’ best chefs, conjures his Cordon Bleu pub grub, from a huge menu including a kid’s choice, vegetarian selection and the best Sunday lunch ever … Completely international it’s a ‘must eat at’ place OK! … and remember he’s usually one step ahead of the competition !

The Brewery Bar and Restaurant, Protaras

I've been to all their venues and have to say they're in a class of their own.

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 ...

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 😉

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 ...

Kama Lifestyle, Pernera

Recently passionately refurbished to boutique style by this wonderful couple, Maria and Doros, who have created a unique accommodation that depicts tranquillity and relaxation to a tee ... one bedroom apartments and studios, available for long or short stay and the whole top floor, with panoramic sea views available for purchase with title deeds ...

Klokkos Tavern, Xylofagou

I love to discover good old authentic Cypriot Tavernas, especially when they are out of town.  As authentic as they come, this 100 year old traditional Cypriot house was lovingly restored and converted into an amazing traditional Cypriot Taverna by Elena and her husband Dimitris in 2008.  Both with over twenty years experience in hospitality, you can tell someone has a flair for design ?

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.

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 ...
