Lordos Group of Hotels, Larnaca & Protaras
I am delighted to introduce you to The Lordos Group of Hotels as I've worked closely with their 3 hotels and indeed the Lordos family since 1993. They are without a doubt one of Cyprus' leading companies and their 3 hotels certainly excel when it comes to location, comfort, and hospitality. Each hotel with its own specific features, each hotel unique in its 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!
Cyherbia Botanical Park & Labyrinth, Avgorou

Little Panda Chinese Restaurant & Sushi Bar, Ayia Napa
Spiros explained; "it’s my hobby to find new authentic recipes on the net, then I cook them, taste them, and I invite my chefs to taste, and if we all agree, the dish becomes a 'Special of the Day', until eventually it gets added to one of our menus!" … brilliant!

‘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!"
Capodecina Pasta Bar, Larnaca
I popped into meet Stelios and Eleni, inside its clean cut, minimalistic, Italian designer style, with wooden flooring, comfortable seating for around 25 people inside and a few tables outside for Al' Fresco dining … Stelios told me "we wanted to make it feel like Home from Home" … I loved the really cool photos chosen by Eleni, especially the one saying "Eat the Spaghetti to Forget your Regretti", brilliant"!
Eliά Backyard Greek Restaurant, Larnaca
Stephanos said; "We got together often, looking for the best place where we could open an authentic Greek Restaurant. We could have done it in Thessaloniki, but there's lots of Greek Restaurants there, so it was a calculated decision and we chose Larnaca because it reminded us most of Thessaloniki and then of course the weather here in Cyprus had something to do with it"
