The Loop, Paralimni

0
Over a gorgeous cappuccino I asked Vaida, why she created 'The Loop'? ... She explained; She is originally from Lithuania, but lived in Holland for many many years, and fell in love and married a Cypriot, and finally moved to Cyprus just 2 years ago" ... Vaida said" "she noticed there was a distinct lack of places to get good fresh food, not just vegetarian and vegan but specialising in healthy eats and healthy diets.  This inspired her to open a place where all the dishes are home made, using predominantly fresh quality produce, and a menu with variety, so there's something for everyone, oh, and served with a little finesse" ... I had a good look through the menu and I have to say it looks well cool, and so I got her point, and must say I'm well impressed.

The Cove Family & Sports Bar, Kapparis

... it's an absolutely wonderful find, just off Kapparis Avenue, just over 200 metres to the beach, in one of my favourite areas in Cyprus, with a massive veranda, so you can relax overlooking the sea that’s about 200 metres away ...

Square Bar & Cafe, Ayia Napa

0
... But tbh, The Square Bar is probably better known for the entertainment and live music played here every night from 8.30 pm 'til late.  That's mostly down to Peter and Rob, of the legendary 'Live Lounge' Cardiff fame, who partnered up with Panicos in 2014 to bring you the very best in live bands, duo's and solo artists ... Check out their Reviews, oh and, go early to avoid disappointment, coz following all health and safety protocols this place gets really busy!

Da Vinci Napiana Italian Restaurant, Ayia Napa

0
We arrived early, and I just have to say the interior designer made a stunning job, recreating a Gothic feel.  It's comfortable, not too posh, something different, encouraging casual dinning ... the bar, tables and chairs, all bespoke influence, black white and grey, with acute arches adorning the facade of the restaurant; the crew all wear braces, a lovely touch ... I just love all the plants and how they kept the 50 year old tree almost totally covering the garden terrace, for a little alfresco dinning.  Oh, and within minutes we were given the wine and cocktail menu, btw, this impeccable service didn't stop there ...

Lambros Fish & Chips & Kebab Tavern, Dhekalia, Larnaca

0
... These days he's got a crew of 30, most working as part of the family for years, and 'well oiled' is an understatement ... serving the best Cod and Haddock, and a nice bit of Plaice, imported from UK, Norway, Germany and France, deep fried in Lambros' crispy batter or breadcrumbs and served, of course, with chips made with Cyprus potatoes, pure heaven! ... opps, don't forget the mushy peas or maybe gravy, or curry sauce to dip your chips into and a few pickled onions and maybe a wally ... omg, old habits die hard oh, and almost forgot a good cuppa and a slice ... perfect!

Farmers Traditional Cypriot Tavern, Ayia Napa

0
The cuisine is naturally traditional, and most of the ingredients in the kitchen come from their families farms, assuring only the freshest produce, oh I just want to say this place is that good, it gets really busy and booking is advisable unless you don't mind grabbing a drink at the bar and soaking up the ambience ...

Mambos Bar & Restaurant, Kapparis

0
Naturally I had to ask why Mambo’s, I joked, nothing to do with Nando’s?, he smiled and said "maybe" … explaining “if anything, we wanted to bring a new concept to the area, with a hint of a Mediterranean fusion with South America” … But I love the name, the décor very cool, the little touches here and there tells you know they mean business.  There’s a lovely long terrace on the sunny mornings side of the road, and indoors spacious for your parties … or those chilli winter nights …

The Octagon, Vrysoules

0
It was busy when I arrived so I took a little space at the bar to chat to Kieran as I watched this well-oiled team working, maintaining health and hygiene protocols with masks and gloves … Kieran explained in fact, they are open every day with a full varied menu and they welcome local, expats and tbh absolutely everyone … he said "we are trying to put traditional Cypriot hospitality back into fun environment" …

Situated just to the right of Ayia Napa Harbour, a little more serene, relax out front in modern chilled ambience, or under the huge covered terrace and gardens out back, overlooking the med ... it really is a perfect place to enjoy premium seafood delights and there's a huge pristine lawn and a play area for the kids with swings, trampolines, tunnels, slides and things ...
