“Lovely place, good food”
Reviewed 2 July 2013

Good food, well cooked, beware the salad it is MASSIVE, when I say MASSIVE i mean it, it had everything on it, Hummus, Tzatziki, beans, watercress, beetroot, breadsticks, leaves, tomato.....the list goes on. The staff are lovely, friendly and attentive. The only downside is how close it is to the road, Well worth a visit!

“A break from the norm”
Reviewed 26 June 2013

We go to Cyprus once or twice a year and always make a point of visiting here. We went twice in June 2013.
The place is unusual and quirky and very unlike anything we are used to back home, maybe that is why some people have written bad reviews, I was saddened to see how these had upset the owner.
The evening is always fun and I am happy to be guided by what is being cooked on the day. Alwasy fresh and lovely, and much more reasonably priced than what you would get in Coral Bay.
I hope the lady who serves is on the mend after hurting her arm.
Have already booked for 2014 so will see you in June, if not before. xxx

“quirky but fun”
Reviewed 4 June 2013

the service was a little slow but to be fair there was only one person on duty and i dont think they expected it to turn out b=to be such a busy night. its right by the road so did get a little noisy and dusty, but the food was really good and service friendly if a little harassed at times. combined restaurant and art gallery with some rather interesting exhibits on display... i preferred the food to the art.

“Meal was awful”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

The service was ok , the food was awful me and my 5 friends had ordered a Greek meze and and we were charged 17.00 Euros each per person . So the salad came out normally with a Greek meze you get dips and pitta bread none of that. Then out came the meat for the meze qty 4 of chicken thighs qty 4 of Greek sausage. qty 4 of chicken skewers and qty 4 of lamb on the bone and the Lamb was so fatty there was hardly any Lamb on the bone just fat! Once we had finished the meat I thought more meat was to follow as I was still hungry and they said no and started to clean the table. This is the worst Greek meze I have had and when we complained about the meal the owner did nothing about it I will not be returning to this restaurant ever again. Also make check your bill as they tried to cover charge us!

“Possibly the worst Restaurant ever....”
Reviewed 27 May 2013

Enter this miserable bohemian shack at your peril, it's truly awful. The 'Earth Mother' artist/chef/owner is clearly deluded, having absolutely no talent as an artist let alone a chef.

We were initially presented with a huge salad of very ramdom ingredients which included nearly a whole cauliflower at its centre, certainly not what I would call a traditional Greek salad. Then after waiting an age a vast platter of poorly presented and cooked meats arrived which was supposedly a Meze, this is definatley not how a Meze should be served.

All in all a dreadful experience, we certainly couldn't bring ourselves to eat the meal and promptly left (after paying the bill......) Later the same evening we were told by quite a few local people that this place has a very poor reputation.
