Having thought about it for a while we decided to give the Taverna a second chance by visiting again.....nothing has changed the place was still packed in very very noisy and clutterd the tables are so close together its obvious you are just a number there " get them in get them out ".

The decor is very very dated and tired the staff try their best but its a small restaurant trying to be large in a very tight small area and you suffer badly with no privacy at all .

The food is superb hotly freshly cooked and presented well just a shame the area you sit in is akin to a market cafe.

I would not recommend this restaurant for a special night out i would recommend you look elsewhere......on the other hand if you dont mind a loud shouting noisy busy packed in environment akin to a football match then this restaurant is for you .

We had a wonderful evening of traditional Cypriot hospitality. If you are looking for a modern plush restaurant, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a traditional Cypriot experience with great food and warm hospitality, this is the place for you. We had a group of friends and had the meze, there was plenty of food and all beautifully cooked. Well worth a visit we will definitely be going back.

Love this place. Tasty Greek food - try the platters - superb! Do not go there unless you are hungry- portions large and well cooked. Friendly host and staff - am sure you'll want to go back

Having booked our table 2 weeks in advance for valentines night we were told on arrival no booking taken !!!.We were guided to a table in a very noisy room where we couldnt hear our selves speak.The tables were so close together at one point food had to be passed over our heads to an adjoining table.I was pressed up against a wall and my partner was so close to a guy she could smell his after shave .

The food was par excellance but the atmosphere was more like a market cafe.....very noisy very packed in and to be honest quite expensive.

Our special night was spoilt by the noise and being so tightly packed in we have been quite a few times to this restaurant in the past but sadly we wont be going again.

It was an evening that should have been special sadly it wasnt I would NOT RECOMMEND this restaurant for a special evening out to any one .
