I've submitted reviews previously for Folio, but haven't visited Cyprus in a couple of years - however having just been back for a holiday, we couldn't wait to visit Folio at it's new site (next to Diva at the top of the Protaras strip) and were not disappointed.
The food was as good as it ever was. We went twice on our trip; once I had sea bass and once I had the black cod. Both were lovely, but the black cod was exceptional. My partner had the pepper steak the first night and the rack of lamb the second time - and again thought they were both cooked to perfection and high quality meat. The steak particularly was huge and so tender and so much better than anything else you'll find in the area.
In terms of starters we had the tortilla duck, which is lovely. For dessert, they all look great, but for me the almond tiramisu is just delicious and probably the best dessert I ever had in terms of texture and taste. I have that every time as it's so tasty. My partner had the crime brûlée this time and really enjoyed that too...
The drinks menu is comprehensive. We just went for the Pinot Grigio Danzante, which is well priced and perfect accompaniment for a good meal in the Cyprus heat. Just fresh and crisp and really refreshing.
Folio is now on the shared site with Diva, however Folio is still a separate restaurant with it's own menu and separate dining room and balcony. I've never eaten in Diva, so can't comment on that, but Folio is fantastic. Granted it's not the cheapest food you could get, but I would rather pay a bit more and have great food. For us on the dishes we had, it was approx.100 euro for 2 people to have 2-3 courses and a bottle of wine, however there are lower cost dishes and you could eat there for less than half that if you are on a budget, but still want to experience great food.
I'm a big fan of this place and when you compare it to most of the tourist-traps around the area, this really is a little gem.
