Nothing is ever too much trouble and customers are encouraged to pop in for a coffee to chat to the family about their requirements beforehand.

“Excellent value and Great food at this family-run Greek Cypriot restaurant”
Reviewed 30 May 2012

If you like Greek food this is by far the best restaurant in the Cromer - Runtons area. The same Greek Cypriot family have run Constantia for many years and still do the cooking, most of the service and the entertainment on the Friday, Saturday and special event musical evenings. They always provide a very warm welcome and the food is excellent. There are very good value fixed price menus. The Mezze menu is a really good way to try lots of different Greek tastes. There is also a good selection of choices on the A la Carte menu. I have eaten here many times and never had a bad experience and the food is always excellent. The evenings with musical entertainment are great fun, but are usually quite busy. If you are looking for a quiet dinner mid-week evenings are better for this, especially out of the main summer season. This restaurant has a great reputation locally and it is very well deserved.

“A little taste of Cyprus in North Norfolk”
Reviewed 26 May 2012

Some reviews have suggested that the food isn't authentic... as someone with Greek Cypriot family who visits Cyprus twice a year I felt compelled to say how authentic (and delicious) the food at Constantia Cottage is. The lamb Constantia is a dish not to be missed, and this month we were lucky enough to attend on a night where an impromptu Constantia Brothers performance took place in addition to their regular gala nights, and this is the best night out we've had this year. Constantia Cottage is a family run establishment and this is why it's easily one of the best restaurants in Norfolk. It is always a pleasure seeing Yas and the family, and as others have said this is a place where the family go out of their way to make you feel like old friends who have come to visit- even the hospitality is authentically Greek!
For £25 the weekend set menu includes a starter, (huge) main, dessert and coffee with petit fours, and for the out of this world food this represents amazing value. Would recommend this restaurant for the food and atmosphere alike, not to be missed.

“Wonderful,friendly and good value”
Reviewed 7 May 2012 via mobile

Had the best experience ever here! We enjoyed our meals, the atmosphere and the live music. The owners and staff were friendly. If you go here you will feel welcome and treated like your custom matters.

This is where my boyfriend proposed to me, so it will always be our special place in cromer!

“Prefer to come here than anywhere in the UK”
Reviewed 7 May 2012 via mobile

QuIte a quote saying that in the title, but I really love this place.
From the moment you walk in, you feel a great atmosphere, receive the best welcome possible and you just feel in a very special place.
The food is excellent, but this is beaten by the atmosphere and the feeling it gives off.
The two brothers get up and play some Greek songs at the end of the evening. It makes you feel like you are abroad and just tips the night off.
How good do I rate this place? Well in the first four months of this year we have been four times, and travelled all the way from Market Harborough, booked a hotel each time just so we can sample their restaurant.
Just come back today and we are looking to go again in two weeks.
Last night there was an on stage marriage proposal, an anniversary party and several birthdays, so I think this place has a similar affect on others.
Never found better anywhere and we eat out every weekend both nights.
The very best there is.
