A perfect end to an otherwise disappointing day. Thank you Stavros for a warm Cypriot welcome, an authentic and well prepared and presented meze and a typically hospitable experience.
Everything about this taverna provides a genuine, heartwarming taste of Cyprus, thank you.
If you don't eat here during your stay in Newquay you have missed a real treat!

Thank SueMuthungu

“Lovely little restaurant in an otherwise dire town”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

We had an enforced overnight stay in Newquay and had almost given up on finding anywhere decent to eat, (Newquay is an absolute dump) when we discovered this place. It's a super little restaurant serving lovely food with really friendly service. I had the moussaka which was excellent, served with a nice fresh salad, my wife had a lamb stew with pitta bread which was really tender and flavoursome. If you ever have the misfortune to be in Newquay and you like Greek food then seek this place out, the town has few other saving graces.

“A little bit of Cyprus in Cornwall.”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

Fantastic welcome followed by authentic, traditionally cooked food!
The meze was outstanding and generously portioned too.
Had a great night, with friendly and interested service in this family run and family orientated restaurant.
Highly recommend if you want something better than average Newquay Fayre without a hefty price tag!

“Awesome food and service”
Reviewed 1 March 2014 via mobile

Walking through the town we chose Stavros because it is different. Newquay is full of 'quirky' little places or big 'high street' types. Stavros stands out; it's the only Greek place for miles. It's family owned and the passion and pride is evident in the product, the service and the environment you experience.
The welcome was warm and the food, contrary to other reviews, was most definitely fresh! Between us we had humous, taziki, lamb souvlaki and mixed grill; all dishes rocked.
Next time we come to Newquay we'll be missing lunch and opting for their legendary mezze combo with no doubts it'll be just as good"
