BBQ Man, Cyprus

Original As far as I know, this is a truly unique service in Cyprus ... The BBQ Man is Joshua Reynolds, a Yorkshire lad coming...

Blue Spice Restaurant & Art Gallery, Pernera

It's a mini resort, with a spacious area boasting a large swimming pool and cafe-style pool bar, surrounded by mature trees, delicious green lawn, palm sun shades, canvas sails, and a lovely ambiance in a truly wonderful setting with free sunbeds and free WiFi ... and there's nightly entertainment in the gardens throughout the summer ... and they only close for January ...

Java Eat Drink Lounge Bar, Pernera

The first impressions were the different design, open-fronted, industrial with minimalist tones, steel pillars, raw concrete and polished wood, high ceilings, really cool lighting, comfy seating, designer signs and the menu, 'different' to say the least but let's say it's more of a diner than a cafe ...

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 ...

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!

Mood’z Bar & Restaurant, Paralimni

Taking over the aptly named Din Dins, in June 2018, Glen, Debbie and Sharon had some really cool plans, and it's obvious they got it right, from the start!  Opening this family bar and restaurant, with comfy seating, both outside on the covered decking, edged with potted plants or inside, where you'll immediately notice a really friendly atmosphere, so the idea is, there's no rush if you're eating, and if you're not hungry you can just chill with a drink and soak up the atmosphere, quite unique, and on that note, the impulse banter between this crew in full flow is just awesome ...

Aeyialos Fish Restaurant & Beach Bar, Pernera, Protaras

Let's start by saying this is a fish lovers haven! ... the setting, is on the coast, with mature trees, casting shadows over pristine lawns, with scattered sun loungers and Hawaii style thatched umbrellas, sweeping down to the tiny sandy bay.  Here and there, little alcoves of places to hide, some with sofas and others with hammocks to chill to the max. Off the restaurant, terraces with wooden decking overlooking a tiny sandy bay and a panoramic view of the med, and btw, this fish restaurant was nominated for Time Out Fish Restaurants, and I think they deserve it !"

Jade Garden Chinese Restaurant and Take Away, Paralimni

If you don't know this place, you've been missing out for about 8 years, because without doubt this is one of the best Chinese restaurants I have ever eaten in.  It's a family run eatery and Si, manages the place with such finesse, the staff compliment with service of the highest order ...

Maccadam All Day, Bar, Paralimni

Over a delicious cappuccino, my old friend 'Tommy' explained: "We wanted to set the ambiance something like you're sitting in a vintage style cafe, on the Kolonaki in Greece, the music relaxed, Mykonos style, with a little live sax now and then and the menus half Greek, half Cypriot, inspired by the irreplaceable chemistry of two top chefs ...
