I am almost afraid to review The Halfway House for fear of giving away a best kept secret. The food, service and welcome here are all outstanding. I recommend the pork kebab or sheftalia (or both!). Everything down to the chips are fresh, homemade, mouthwatering and unforgettable. Great relaxed place for kids to eat too. x

Had an enjoyable Full English Breakfast here. Good food and Coffee, with a friendly welcome. Ignore the slightly tatty looking frontage, lovely and clean in the restaurant

We stopped here for a coffee on our way to Polis. Very modern and well equiped, we had our coffee sitting out under vines from which hung large bunches of grapes. We checked out the menu intending to come back for dinner but they were closed when we returned that evening.

Love this place! We always got a warm welcome from the excellent hosts Vaz and Julie. We visited several times during our stay and the food was consistently good. The sheftalia from the grill is top notch and the breakfast servings are a joy. Also treated to complimentary homemade jams and grapes freshly cut from the overhead vines. It’s a... More

This was our sixth year we visited this lovely taverna and Julie and Vas remember and greet us like family members. Ate here several lunch times (alas not open in the evening anymore) during our long holiday stay and everything consistently good. Excellent size portions and flavoursome plus Julie's desserts are to die for. Value for money and the wine... More

If you want a nice shady drink or a meal then this is the place the owners Jack, Vas and Julie treat everyone like old friends. The food is excellent whether a pitta pocket or a full meal, its cooked when you order from freshly made ingredients that morning. The standard of catering is first class the kitchen spotless and...
