Description: Hippocampus Lounge Restaurant located in Protaras, which is a famous tourist area in Cyprus. Serves great, simple dishes in a modern and stylish environment. The Lounge Cafe Restaurant is the ideal setting for any occasion. Eclectic dishes, all of which are made on the premises by the restaurant's chef, range Burgers, Pasta and Steaks to the more traditional Greek Mousaka, delectable seafood plates, ensuring there is something to tempt everyone, while the wines and cocktails provide the perfect accompaniment to any dish. The last three years added an excellent Sushi that is prepared on our Sushi-Bar and Hookah Flavours that ensure a great experience. The service is always professional and attentive, while the atmosphere informal and relaxed.

This looks like a really smart restaurant, and it is very popular with small children who like the play area. We actually ate here twice on our recent holiday, as we thought the first visit was probably not typical. My husband loved his chicken dish but I found the salad underwhelming. It was billed as including crab sticks, tuna and salmon. I found the crab sticks ok, but only found the other fish after ploughing through a mountain of shredded cabbage (I think that's what it was). The dressing was delicious, but the cured tuna and salmon didn't go together, or with anything else.
The second time, I ordered a fillet steak with a "creamy mushroom sauce". It was actually Diane sauce, but the waitress told me it wasn't. The grilled vegetables were soaked in oil, and the potatoes tasted of soil. The steak was cooked as ordered but was obviously not a good cut. Very chewy.
The restaurant and the food look fabulous, but the service and the taste just don't match up.
