DeJaVu aka Bill & Ems Band, Protaras

I was delighted to be invited to catch Bill and Ems, aka Dejavu, playing live at Lithos Bar & Grill in Larnaca.  On that night they were joined by Andreas, their drummer, and as a trio, they go by the name 'Strings Attached'  I really loved this gig so much, especially their covers of Fever, and Hotel California, so I grabbed the chance to ask Bill if we could get together for a chat.

I am delighted to add The Lordos Group of Hotels to our guide as I've worked closely with their 3 hotels and the Lordos family since 1993.  They are without a doubt one of Cyprus' leading companies and their 3 hotels certainly lead the way for comfort and hospitality.  Each hotel with it's own specific features, each hotel unique in it's own way.  All ideally situated in perfect locations, pretty much, right on the beach!

Olives Seafood & Sushi Restaurant, Larnaca

Coming up to their first anniversary in Cyprus I asked Nicola to tell me about the Menu ... Nicola said; "We sort of split it into three cuisines, Fresh Fish, Fresh Sushi, and Vegan Platters & Snacks ... Our head chef has been with us since day one, his qualifications and previous experience in Cyprus, the very best Sushi eateries, including Sushi La and Wagamama" ... I was suitably impressed!

‘Chez Fāina – Fayrous’, Mediterranean Brasserie, Larnaca

Fāinā told me "We originally opened a French restaurant in Makarios Avenue, introducing Lebanese cuisine after 2 years, but when we moved our restaurant here we switched to a Lebanese Restaurant with just a few French dishes as our customers were mostly locals.  These days its a more varied international mix as more and more tourists have discovered us.  As the years past, we found more and more of our customers were asking us to cook French cuisine for them".  She laughed and said "ha! but many restaurants cook Frogs Legs, but none can cook them like ours!  And, then she added; just wait til you try our Duck!"

Octopus Craft Beer by Octo Microbrewery, Sotira

I asked why their beers are so good;  Taras explained, "The biggest difference of Craft Beer is it has more flavour and taste, mainly because it's not filtered or pasteurised, making it a much richer flavour.  Craft Beer is like a finger print because we never brew our beer in a bad mood, that's how we are here at Octo and we hope you are just like us" …

Aristides Craft Distilling, Tseri, Nicosia

My initial interest was to find out about their gins, Aris explained, "it's what originally brought us back to Cyprus, 'to create a quality craft gin'.  Our initial inspiration was the aroma of The Troodos Mountains after a long dry summer when it first rains and we wanted to capture exactly that and put it in a bottle and we called it Aoratas Dry Gin which in fact last year won a gold medal. 

Escape Night Club, Pyla, Larnaca

Most nights, you'll find up to 12 gorgeous dancers and hostesses, from all over Europe, to keep you company if you buy them a drink ... The girls are always in the mood to party, they're just waiting for a good reason, and the more you party, the more they do and the girls love to dance, so they're happy to dance on the poles, tease with a lap dance, give you a wicked Fire show, or maybe a little private dance?
