Reviewed 9 June 2014

No trip is good without trying some authentic local cuisine, which is what you will find in local Taverns.
why this one? it's located in a beautiful small village, it's playing nice chilled old school music, the atmosphere there is fantastic, the people that run the place are great company and the food is delicious!
they serve a variety of local dishes that change daily, always fresh, and always delicious. try this place out, you will come back for more!

“Home cooked food”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

We called at this restaurant as we were recommended . Having in mind what we fancied we were welcomed by Kyri and was told about his cooking. He advised us about the days speciality which was called fasalaki, which was green beans which we had with chicken. First of all we had a greek salad, it was one of the freshest, crisp salads we have tried, delicious, followed by the green beans with chicken, then tavas which is potatoes and pork, we enjoyed it so much we ordered another of green beans and chicken, never had greens beans tasted so good. The friendliness of Kyri and his brother was one we will never forget.

“Good food, good prices ... and nice hosts!”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

We enjoyed the food there, which was good both times we went. The owner was great at socialising with the customers as well as spoiling the children. It has been a very good experience overall!

“Great restaurant, authentic interesting food”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

Warm welcome from the courteous host and team, including the owner's brother. A simple restaurant but featuring a changing dish of the day, or two, which were always splendid. Lots of locals and a welcoming atmosphere. Strong focus on authentic local food,

“Retro tavern, kalavasos”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

We were made very welcome by Kyri and his brother paddy and their friends. Out of the 7 nights we stayed in kalavasos we ate here six nights. Kyri the owner was extremely friendly and very hospitable. He cooked anything we wanted and introduced us to all the local delicacies and meals enjoyed in cyprus. We enjoyed it so much we offered to cook a meal for Kyri, paddy and their friends which they accepted. Kyri had not had customers cook in his kitchen before :0) we cooked beef stew and dumplings which everyone enjoyed :) we stayed late on many occasions drinking wine and sharing stories. We were very sad to leave but will visit again. And highly recommend retro tavern to everyone visiting kalavasos. Thank you for making our holiday so enjoyable :0)
