My hubby and I stopped her by chance when on holiday a few weeks ago. We had hired a buggy and were looking for somewhere to stop for lunch. What a find! It's a large restaurant but at 3pm we were the only people in there - but the friendly atmosphere and wonderful welcome was the same had they been packed out. Mattheos (owner) was a lovely guy - so friendly and genuinally pleased you were there. The food was wonderful - I had the tuna salad - a huge affair and so fresh. Hubby had a cheese and mushroom omelette and a side of chips - again a very generous portion. The potatoes are home grown and the chips were scrummy. At the end of the meal we were given a free sweet - a Cyprian dish (the name of which I unfortunately can't remember) and a plate of fresh fruit. Unfortunately we didn't get chance to go back again before our holiday ended but will head straight there next time!

We visit melania every year and it never disappoints. It is a lovely family run business and all the food is grown in the fields just outside the restaurant. The food is always lovely and the moussaka is one of the best around!! Matthew and Georgios are always very welcoming and friendly. Would definatley recommend melania for a lovely authentic Cypriot meal under the vines.

This was our local place and local food which was grown and all produced by the restaurant so the meals tasted great and also the wine was local. What a memory to come home with and flavours. The meze was fantastic.

We have been visiting the restaurant for 24 years and the food has always been excellent. It seems to be suffering from a lack of visitors (not their fault) and so the prices have risen quite a lot. However there is always plenty of food. There was however a problem with the card machine!

Thanks for visiting our place so many years. Sure on November time visitors are much less than Summer time. Sure prices have risen quite a lot all over Cyprus because of the cost of most products and and expenses. We will always cook plenty of food.and very high quality for all of you. Thanks for the support. Problems have to do with information systems like the card machine etc...its a part of our life here in Cyprus!
