Chris, who has over 30 years experience in the hospitality industry said he wanted to open a place that offers low cost, tasty, good quality food, Greek style ... please note; Greek not Cypriot, cos this is authentic Greek leaning towards Cypriot and even the Pittas are imported from Greece ! Chris told me , ''They use only the freshest ingredients, cooking to order, which gives their dishes that extra bit of quality'' ! oh, and I love the cool variation of fresh herbs in each table !
... it's almost inevitable that this place goes from home dining to partying like only the Cypriots know how!
Literally on the quay, so you can paddle your toes in the sea and feed the fish, make use of the free Wifi as you sip your coffee, an ice cold beer, afternoon G'n'T or fresh Strawberry Daiquiri and arguably the best Margaritas you'll ever taste ... then savour the freshest Fish Meze on the harbour ... it really is a cut above the rest with panoramic views that stretch to Cape Greco especially at sunset, it's an explosion of colours ...
With over 50 stalls in the summer there's everything you'd expect from a thriving market, from a variety of bric-a-brac, souvenirs, hand made pottery, household goods, I.T Services and computer stuff. There's shoes, new and second hand clothes, accessories, cafes and food stalls and even Grimsby's Smokey Pete's Van selling traditional English fish imported from Grimsby of course! Pete has been in the trade over 35 years and specialises in Smoked Haddock, smoked the traditional way in Oak Sawdust ... the aroma is awesome!
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 !!!
Cape Bar is a family bar with a friendly family atmosphere ...it's situated near Cyclops Caves, on the edge of the National Park at Konnos Bay, Cape Greco. It's one of my favourite areas in Cyprus, this is a great place to watch the beautiful sunset.
By night it's best described as a Pre-Club Party Bar, a wicked sound system, lights and smoke n all so be warned you might not make it to the club coz this lot party every night ... Resident and Guest DJ's through the season, the music, playing a cool mix of House, R'n'B, and Classic Party tunes and MC's that'll get you up on your feet and you'll be dancing on the podiums and well, anywhere you wanna ...
... so, if the kids are complaining they're bored, get ready to satisfy their thirst for fun!
It's a little away from the maddening crowds but this lot know how to party !
Taking over the aptly named Din Dins, in June 2018, Glen, Debbie and Sharon had some really cool plans, and it's obvious they got it right, from the start! Opening this family bar and restaurant, with comfy seating, both outside on the covered decking, edged with potted plants or inside, where you'll immediately notice a really friendly atmosphere, so the idea is, there's no rush if you're eating, and if you're not hungry you can just chill with a drink and soak up the atmosphere, quite unique, and on that note, the impulse banter between this crew in full flow is just awesome ...
