Sitting in Cafes chatting with your mates is a way of life in Cyprus, but as we joined Europe we noticed a huge swing...
Just off the roundabout at Ayia Triada, two mins walk from Trinity Beach, with gorgeous sweeping views to the sea, is this traditional British Pub that's a hive of activity day and night … Barbara and Simon, aka Simon the Pie Man come from the Green Isle and good old Irish hospitality came with them, in abundance !!!
They serve traditional Cypriot cuisine or as Artimaki says ''pure horthiatiko'' or village style in English, and the food is always made fresh, so it'll take at least 20 minutes to be served, but let me just say; its worth every minute !
... They definitely don't sell fast food here, they sell really good food as fast as they can and the menu is truly international, carefully prepared by Emma, ably assisted by 5 top chefs, headed up by Gavin and Andrew who conjure up a menu of international culinary delights to suite absolutely every taste, using only fresh local produce and imported delicacies ... and whatever you do you really must leave some room for dessert, or just go for desserts ... mmmm!
Specialising in Pork or Chicken Souvlaki cooked over real charcoal nice and slowly … They’re getting good vibes about their Gyros made with pork, beef, lamb or chicken using the family recipe, marinated for two days before being slow cooked on the Rotisserie … served in Greek or Cypriot Pitta Bread, with salad and a selection of sauces … but I must say I wanna try the Steak in a Bun next …
I was a few days early to try the burgers, but the grills have now arrived, so I asked what we could expect? ... Yiannis said, "same as from our Protaras shop 'Notos' next to Crepa Land ... We wanted the Franchise for Crêpa Land but we wanted to sell burgers too ... Crepa Land is a national franchise, making Crepes, Waffles, Pancakes, Sandwiches, Fresh Coffee and cakes or Ben Jerry's Ice creams ... and we wanted to sell Burgers so we added a section just to do that ... and we called it Burger Club, come join us"!
One of the most popular bars in Protaras, staying open all year, it's British style with traditional Cypriot hospitality and great pub grub !
Let's start by saying this is a fish lovers haven! ... the setting, is on the coast, with mature trees, casting shadows over pristine lawns, with scattered sun loungers and Hawaii style thatched umbrellas, sweeping down to the tiny sandy bay. Here and there, little alcoves of places to hide, some with sofas and others with hammocks to chill to the max. Off the restaurant, terraces with wooden decking overlooking a tiny sandy bay and a panoramic view of the med, and btw, this fish restaurant was nominated for Time Out Fish Restaurants, and I think they deserve it !"
It's a mini resort, with a spacious area boasting a large swimming pool and cafe-style pool bar, surrounded by mature trees, delicious green lawn, palm sun shades, canvas sails, and a lovely ambiance in a truly wonderful setting with free sunbeds and free WiFi ... and there's nightly entertainment in the gardens throughout the summer ... and they only close for January ...
