“Simply the best souvlaki!”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

After arriving in Cyprus on a late afternoon flight this was the perfect answer.
The food was flavourful and well seasoned. The staff were welcoming and friendly and offered great value for money.
A must do for any trip to Nicosia.
I will be dreaming of the food for many months to come and just wish there was one in London.

“Excellent authentic Cypriot/Greek food and service in old Nicosia,”
Reviewed 10 June 2014 via mobile

On a business trip to Nicosia from london, a friend recommended this place, absolutely fantastic. Great 'tapas' style fresh grilled food set in the old town of Nicosia. Prices were very reasonable for the quality of food and service. I believe it's only been open for a few months but it's a must stop if you visit the old town. I had a selection from the grill and a mix of salad which was plentiful and full of incredible tastes. No bookings but very busy, if you have to wait for a table, seriously wait!!!! It's worth it. Best authentic Cypriot restaurant I'm come across in Cyprus. Highly recommended.

“Very good souvlaki and good prices! Packed and no reservations which makes it a bit of a mess at peak hours.”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

We tried three times while passing by to finally get a table at this place. We had a table outside. First contact with the menu you realise that is really cheap and this can be the reason is always packed. After the food came (I had chicken souvlaki) I enjoyed it! Delicious souvlaki! Dish accompanied with greek pitta and fried onions and potatoes and salad. Hmmm... I wish this doesn't end up in the end like certain unhealthy places you find in Athens that you go for souvlaki and it's like going for junk food. For the moment is very good I will be returning back. The only thing I didn't like was that as they don't accept reservations people queue among the rest seated guests outside to get a table. In the end you end up eating, while just next to you people queue and discuss with the supervisor (sometimes people get frustrated) for the next available table. This is certainly not nice as apart from the good food a restaurant (even a casual one) needs to keep an order and respect their customers. They could have the people queueing, if this is the policy they want to keep, a bit further than having people standing among the tables discussing while the rest are eating. Returning back yes. I recommend it!

“Excellent grilled meats”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 via mobile

This is a really buzzy restaurant. It is quite small inside but with a lot more seating out on the pavement. It's in a pedestrianised area so there is no traffic problem. The food was very good, especially the various grilled/barbecued meats. Service was good too. Worth a visit.
