I was delighted to be invited to ‘Play 4 All’ to catch up with owner Lucas Polycarpou and I have to say, I had no idea just how much they do here, with 6 Full Size Bowling Alleys, a Children’s Play Room, called ‘The Jungle’ and a fully fitted club style party room called ‘La Mour’ for up to 150 of your friends. There’s also a restaurant with a top chef presenting a full a’ la carte menu and that’s just for starters, excuse the pun … oh and, a few big screen TV’s so you can just pop in for a drink to watch all the live sports and the footie! … So it really is a fun place for kids, and grown ups!
Let’s start with the Bowling; It’s a great way to pass an hour or two with your best mate or partner. Each game is 20 Frames, unless you get a strike, coz that’ll give you an extra go, with electronic score boards, making a great backdrop for a selfie that you can send to all your opponents’ friends 😉 … It’s a family place, so children from age 8 can play too, or as long as they can hold and roll a bowling ball, so it’s a great idea for all the family, boy’s v girls maybe?
There’s 6 x Full Size ‘Brunswick’ automated 10 Pin Bowling Alleys, so there’s a good chance you’ll find an alley free if you decide to go spontaneously, apart from on weekends, bank holidays or when there’s a big party there, so it’s best to book in advance to be sure. It’s only €4 per person per game, with extras like; Bowling Platters for nibbles and even Beer Towers for the adults to share, all part of the service.
One of their specialities is Kids Bowlicious Parties and there’s lots of special offers for Bowling with Munchies, for example; 1 Game of Kids Bowling with a choice of one of five ‘Kids Meals’ and a soft drink, with Invitations, for only €9.50 per kid and if they fancy an extra game of bowling, the second game is only €3 per child.
There’s to many to mention with over 20 different specials, things like decorations, candy tables, chocolate fountains and seasonal fruit platters. On top of that you can pre book a magician, camera man, photo booth, organised games, face painting, clowns, mascots, glitter tattoos and even fitness activities and a really cool kids spa and much, much more.
What a lovely way to let the kids burn off some of that excessive energy. The Jungle is a purpose built play room with ball pits, climbing frames, trampoline, all soft and safe with qualified staff to look after the children and you can just chill outside with a drink or a coffee and cake in the spacious cafe. It’s only €3 per child age 2 to 10 for a full day pass and kids under 18 months old go free.
Parties in the Jungle
Organised parties in The Jungle are for a minimum of 15 kids, for as long as they want to play in the Play Ground with choice of kids meal and a soft drink for only €8.50, brilliant! … Oh and, there’s an Outdoor Playground too, weather permitting.
If you really want to give the kids a treat go for a combination party, start with a game of bowling, followed by as long as you want in The Jungle with a choice of one kids meal and a drink for only €11 per child, for a minimum of 15 kids.
Upstairs is ‘La Mour’, the multi purpose built, club style, ‘Party & Special Events Room’. It’s designed for you and up to 150 of your family and friends, with a choice of a virtual DJ, YouTube Mixes, bring your own mix on a lap top, hire one of their professional DJs, or you can bring your own DJ. There’s an awesome sound system, party lights and two bars with a selection of food, buffets, mini bites, pizza and platters for the adults with drinks tokens available.

Naturally for the adults they also serve all your favourite tipples, local wines, beers, Prosecco, Champaign and they mix some awesome classic cocktails plus a few signature mixes and you can enjoy them all whilst your kids run riot in the Jungle, safe as houses and you enjoy a few bowls.
Smoothies, Milkshakes & Desserts
Famous for their Speciality Smoothies, Milkshakes and Yoghurt Shakes at ‘Play 4 All’ it’s only the best fresh ingredient’s, always with fresh milk or strained yoghurts … Go for a ‘Mars Deluxe Shake’ that gets served with a chocolate bar or upgrade to a ‘Freak Shake’ that adds a selection of tasty donuts to your order … oh and, they also serve delicious; fancy waffles, crepes and pancakes, Gelato Ice cream and American Cookies.
In the Kitchen
Unsurprisingly, I found their head chef and old friend ‘Chris’ who heads up the kitchen, and he’s been here since they opened in 2010, when he was at the five star Sunrise Beach Hotel in Protaras. He’s created an international menu, from a top Cypriot or English breakfast to snacks, homemade ‘American diner’ style burgers, my fav the Goliath Burger or the Lava Burgers, or the Peanut Butter Burger. They also have grills like their huge 750 gsm Pork Chop, try the best selling Pastas or Noodles like the Creamy Salmon Penn and awesome International Buffets.
Over a delicious coffee, I had a chat with head chef Chris and he told me “we’ve got an international menu of many different styles of cuisine, created with families in mind, from sandwiches, omelettes, chips and salads to pizza, mini bites and an enviable a’la carte menu with steamed or grilled vegetables. We offer large portions of top quality produce from the local area and import a few things we have to like New Zealand Lamb and Irish Beef … You can scan their QR Code for More Choices
My favourite choice for just two of us or even when there’s ten of us is their excellent platters … choose Anti Pasti for a mix of meat & cheese, or just meats, just cheese, fresh seasonal fruit or a mix of all of them. I love their very cool Rolls Platters with tasty Salmon Rolls or the delicious Bao Buns Platters, which can all be brought to you to nibble on during your game of bowling or at your party, with a wide selection of drinks.
Chris really enjoys his Mexican Corner with everything from the Nachos with melted cheese to their, Tacos, Burritos, Fajitas and lots of side dishes.
Seasonal Fasting Menu
Understanding many of their local customers will be fasting at various times of the year they also have a Fasting menu and a few Vegan dishes one things for sure, you’ll find very nice food, good portions, delicious desserts all at very good prices, served with traditional Cypriot hospitality by a very well oiled team.
Takeaway & Delivery
The kitchen has a very good reputation and so they now also provide a Take Away & Delivery to the local area from 2 pm ’til 10.30 pm and I love the way the kids can cut their meal boxes into an octopus or a bear, oh and, you can also order via Foody.
Why not have a company team building day for you and the staff … It’s a lovely way to have some fun, a little snack and a few drinks, with some very special offers and awards can be arranged as well.
Kids & Grown-ups
This place really is something for everyone, with free entrance and a world of play and party for all ages from a casual drink to a full buffet party and lots more … Check out their Facebook page and Web site for more and you can see their videos here.
