“A must for Shirley Valentine fans”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

We have now been twice to Yialos with two lots of friends and the first time was amazing! We sat at a table right next to beach which for us two girls was definitely a Shirley Valentine moment. We all had the BBQ ribs which were the best we had tasted in Cyprus, we were given a slice of coconut cake each instead of the usual gleeko which was lovely and moist. The second time we came we again had the ribs but this time we were given the gleeko. The price for us four plus drinks was very good and look forward to taking more of our friends there.

“Brilliant food and wonderful views”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

Based on the road out of Latchi, this is one of the places you must visit for a warm Cypriot welcome. Yialos food is superb with wonderful views over the bay. A real treat is late Afternoon to Evening to watch the sun set.
Favorites are Chicken Kebab and also Sheftalia are a must along with a village salad.
It is placed on the left hand side as you pass the last part of the beach from Latchi out to Neo chorio - Aphrodites baths. If you visit Polis or Latchi its well worth a visit.

“Most amazing chicken kebabs!”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

I visit Yialos every time I am in Cyprus. Their chicken kebabs are absolutely amazing! The owner is always really friendly and offers figs from his trees and various pickled veg and fruit. Well worth a visit on the way back from Aphrodites baths.

“A great little restaurant.”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

Set right bang on the beach in a bright well kept garden is this charming little restaurant. The food is inexpensive and very good. On one lunch time visit the family were sitting outside hand making the sheftalia, we just had to come back in the evening to enjoy these super fresh delicious local sausages. The ribs are also excellent, I could pull the bones cleanly out just with my fingers from the pretty generous rack that I enjoyed. They also serve lovely free little dishes of pickled vegetables and olives instead of the bread that is usually comes out before the meal.

Set a little back from the restaurant is a play area for children, this is far enough away from the tables by the beach for the sounds of the kids playing not to intrude on those who like a little peace.

A super spot to enjoy an pleasant affordable evening meal with spectacular sunsets. Can't wait to go back.
