Malmia Pub, Protaras

Malmia Pub, Protaras, Established 1994

Popular for Years
The Malmia Pub is up on the top road in the very popular area of Protaras.  Owner Christos has it all set up British style, it looks busy, memorabilia everywhere and he’s been welcoming back his local British contingency and many seasonal clients year after year for 25 years now, making them without doubt one of the most popular pubs in the area and one of the very few bars staying open throughout the winter months.

Drinks & Real Ales
There’s a sea view out back, loads of blackboards with cocktails and specials of the day … Behind the bar, you’ll find your fav tipple, a wide selection of drinks, from international Wines to Draught beers like the Islands favourite lagers Keo and Carlesberg, Peroni, Thatchers Gold Cider, and not forgetting the real ales like the creamy taste of John Smiths, and the very special Old Speckled Hen.

Now, you can’t visit Cyprus without sampling their famous Brandy Sours and I have to say Christos mixes one to perfection, oh and Ouzo specials just as good … but they also boast a full cocktail menu which includes, The Summer Dream Cocktail blended with with Vodka, Marcaciya, Kiwi liqueur and orange juice, or ladies you may fancy a cheeky Viagra cocktail which is a mix of Vodka, Apple Schnapps, Cointreau and orange juice.  Why not pop down to sample these delicious drinks, trust me you wont be disappointed!

In The Kitchen
Kicking off with an All Day Breakfast, a big favourite with me, coz you get 2 Eggs, 2 Back Bacon, an English Sausage, Mushrooms, Tomato, Baked Beans, 2 Slices of Toast, Marmalade, Tea, Coffee or Orange Juice for only €4.50 … and in the afternoon, pop in for a G’n’T or a coffee and slice of cake …  for Brunch or Lunch go for a Baguette ‘n’ Pint or Glass of Wine for only €4.95 

Quick Peak
Everyone loves a nice pie, and at Malmia their traditional pies are to die for, take it from me.  A quick peak at the array of food on Malmia’s Menu … It’s British Cuisine with an International twist, with a wide choice of snacks such as … Toasties, Burgers, one of my faves the Steak Sandwich ‘n Chips, Lovely Fluffy House omelettes, Pizza and delicious Jacket Potatoes with a filling of your choice.

Home Cooking
It’s like home from home especially if you fancy a traditional Sunday Roast then look no further, with a choice of roast beef, chicken or pork with Yorkshire puddings fresh veg and roasties, mash and dessert for only €7.50 sized down for the kids for only €5 … btw, for dessert try the delicious hot apple pie with cooling ice cream, followed by a delicious cup of coffee or tea, and there is also a cool kids menu …

Sports TV
Boasting 5 Big TV screens for all your live sports with up to four football games showing simultaneously most Saturdays, and any other time ask if you wanna catch up with the golf or tennis and Chris will probably oblige.

Potting The Black
For all you Pool crazy’s out there why not pop down and rack a few frames and chalk up that Cue for a game or two with your friends on 2 top quality tables.  Christos leads two teams in the winter pool league and he reliably told me practice is every other night 😉

When the sports are all over Malmia Play an awesome mix of tunes, everyone’s favourites from the 80’s through to the Naughties 😉  … Every Tuesday afternoon it’s eyes down for Bingo and for the quizzers, Malmia hold a cool pub quiz every Thursday afternoon, both starting at 4 pm, with cash prizes including extra little games like ‘Open the Box’, ‘Sticky 13’ it’s a card game, so get yourself down for loads of fun, great banter and a chance to win some cash!

Posh Nosh
Most years, twice a year, Christos holds a themed night called ‘Posh & Nosh’ … Christos invites you to put on your glad rags, black tie and cocktail dresses for Valentines evening and an end of season party in November.  I love any excuse to dress up in my Glad Rags, don’t you?
