Recently, Koulla invited me to try their fish platter on their weekly Cyprus Night with a traditional Cypriot dance group ... I'm so glad I went there hungry because the fish platter was big ... Their Greek dancing just awesome, traditional, right down to the famous glass tower dance, this guy is amazing, and when they get everyone up to join in its totally unique because of this perfect location, outside, with the little church as a backdrop and all of harbour approach is your dance floor with many passer-byes stopping to see what's on ... brilliant! btw it every Wednesday night, regulations permitting
Just a short walk up from the square, is one of the best restaurants in Cyprus; just ask anyone! oh, and I should warn you, Los Bandidos Mexican Restaurant is seriously addictive !!! Established for 30 years this eaterie gained a reputation as one of the finest restaurants in Cyprus and every year they seem to get better. They do absolutely everything with such style and finesse, and with excellent staff, authentic music and traditional Mexican décor oh, and cacti everywhere! It's a must visit!
Favoured equally by our locals as too our international visitors, The Golden Coast Beach Hotel & Spa is the perfect place to relax and unwind, as you watch the stunning Cyprus sunrises looking east, over the tranquil, sheltered Mediterranean Sea! Nine Restaurants and Bars make it hard to choose which one to savour the flavours of the world! Whilst their facilities and activities are enviable!
Bursting at the seams with talent, lets start with one of my best friends Xenis, without doubt one of Cyprus' finest chefs, who passionately conjures up his GastroPub style cuisine, using only the freshest and finest ingredients, many picked from his personal mini farm. The rest bought from very selected local suppliers, except of course when they need to be internationally authentic.
This is one restaurant you can put into the exquisite range ... it's right in the heart of Ayia Napa’s bustling tourist centre, and without doubt, one of Cyprus' premium eateries. In fact, Sage has been impressing me with their culinary flair for over a decade, with a strong emphasis on quality fulfilled with passion, that starts from the moment you arrive and are greeted by their charming Maître ’D ...
I've been eating at Ropas since my first season here, the year they opened in 1991 … It's one of my favourite places to eat if I fancy authentic Cypriot Meze … Of course I've known Costas and his wife Nikki since then and I have to say this guy oozes traditional Cypriot hospitality, so too Nikki and family, son Stelios out front and daughter Flora helping Nikki in the kitchen, tbh this team are really hard to beat!
Nestled on the wonderful Kalamies Beach in Pernera, this spacious family run restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. This truly is a first class eaterie, continuing to provide traditional freshly cooked Cypriot cuisine served with pure Cypriot hospitality for almost forty years ...
The setting is as good as on the beach, it's a traditional village house with alcoves and arches edging the shaded patio out front, overlooking the beautiful Mediterranean sea. The ambience is relaxed outside and continues inside, with comfy lounge style sofas and 4 huge TV screens to watch all the live sports, there's a pool room with plenty of seating and two lovely open fires to keep your toes warm in the winter.
Cape Bar is a family bar with a friendly family atmosphere ...it's situated near Cyclops Caves, on the edge of the National Park at Konnos Bay, Cape Greco. It's one of my favourite areas in Cyprus, this is a great place to watch the beautiful sunset.
