Knights Pub & Restaurant, Pernera

Knights Pub & Restaurant, Pernera, Established 1988

At least once!
This is without doubt one of my fav pubs, with an impeccable history, and it’s an excellent eaterie with an awesome landlord.  It’s where everyone goes at least once, it’s not only a workers fav, but the locals in the area and nationals who swarm down to the coast, all add to the ever increasing visitors since 1988 and it’s just has to be one of the most successful bars in Cyprus.

In the Kitchen
Bursting at the seams with talent, one of my best friends ‘Xenis’, without doubt one of Cyprus’ finest chefs, who passionately conjures up his Cordon Bleu pub grub, using only the freshest and finest ingredients from local suppliers and some grown in Xenis’ personal allotments …

Choose from a huge menu including absolutely fresh Angus Fillet Steaks, cooked to perfection with a choice of sauces, Home Made Angus Beef Burgers, a delicious Vegetarian selection and the best Fish ever oh and a kid’s menu too … Completely international it’s a ‘must eat at’ place! … and btw Xenis likes to stay one step ahead of the competition 😉

Adding international options makes it difficult to choose, especially try a few Cypriot Favourites like the traditional Moussaka in a hot pot or my absolute fav the Green or Red Thai Curries, with sauces carefully selected by Xenis on his trips to the east, and imported from Thailand … oh and check out the seafood choices … but just wait til you try the Cod ‘&’ Chips !!!

omg! you must leave some room for one of Xenis’ home made desserts.  Full of fresh ingredients that make them just irresistible.  You really must try the Raspberry Cheesecake, or the Blueberry pie, and the Poached Plums are to die for!  Brother Panicos lends a hand making the Home Made Ice creams and Sorbets, with a huge selection of flavours, my favs are the mint with chocolate and the Rum and Raisin, and the Tiramisu, and the Pavlova, ha!, and you’re bound to love one of them.

Your Maitre ‘d is the eminent Panicos, never a more charming man you’ll meet … behind the bar is George on the till and not forgetting ‘Akis’ who opened this place 30 years ago now, who is more of a Director of the Bar these days … That’s the four brothers, doing what they do best … ably assisted by the gorgeous friendly crew 😉

Beers & Entertainment
Truly a family pub, there’s loads of fun and frolics, and more than ten beers on draught including local brews, Stella Artois, Guinness and Ciders, there’s vodka delights and Akis’ exotic Cocktail Menu as much fun to read as it is to taste … There’s great entertainment nightly a really cool resident DJ playing a varied mix of party music, which creates such an awesome atmosphere.

This is Unusual
There’s TV’s and huge screens all over the place, so you can see what your listening to, coz this DJ mixes up music videos with a regular trips back to the 70’s 80’s 90’s and the naughties …

Live Sports
Oh and its a must for live sports fans, with so many screens and almost as many satellite dishes they often have several sports on at once, all you have to do is ask and they will probably find it … Coz this place show absolutely everything with live English commentary.

Cyprus Rocks 2018
Last year Knights bar accidentally became the ‘after bar’ for the Classic Rock Festival in October and it looks like this year that’ll be official as one of the main sponsors, so you know where to go if you’re near here during the Rock Festival …

Gotta go back
This is one of those bars that hold on to their repeat visitors as well as getting a whole new bunch hooked every season !!! So if you wanna eat Booking is highly recommended coz it tends to get really busy !!!
