Nestled on the wonderful Kalamies Beach in Pernera, this spacious family run restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. This truly is a first class eaterie, continuing to provide traditional freshly cooked Cypriot cuisine served with pure Cypriot hospitality for almost forty years ...
It's a little away from the maddening crowds but this lot know how to party !
Koulla invited me to try their fish platter on their weekly Cyprus Night with a traditional Cypriot dance group ... I'm so glad I went there hungry because the fish platter was big ... Their Greek dancing just awesome, traditional, right down to the famous glass tower dance, this guy is amazing, and when they get everyone up to join in its totally unique because of this perfect location, outside, with the little church there and all of harbour approach is your dance floor with many passer-byes stopping to see what's on ... brilliant! btw it every Wednesday night
Nestled neatly between the Square, the Monastery, the middle of town and the nightlife is probably one of the biggest and most stylish venues in Cyprus ... Serving premium spirits, a delicious Snack Menu and specialising in freshly made Sushi ! By day it's pure chill out by night its pure party !
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 !
... 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!
George says ''expect to find an awesome selection of spicy food, coz the boss loves it spicy!'' ... but by 'spicy' he doesn't mean hot hot, he means full of flavours of the East, some mild, some medium and many that give a kick ... Everything is cooked to order, using freshly cut local vegetables and the finest cuts of meat, and seafood and imported ingredients from the East ... Then three top Chefs conjure up an extensive selection of Asian cuisines from, China, Thailand, Korea and Japan and of course Sushi
We are very fortunate to have a few of my favourite ever Japanese restaurants in Cyprus ... I think the authenticity is partly down...
Getting into the natural food thing isn't as hard as you think ! Replacing things like crisps and biscuits, with really fresh nuts and totally fresh, dried, and sugarless fruits is easy, tbh, knowing you're not putting rubbish inside you is a fulfilling emotion and actually I discovered ages ago the tastes are just awesome !
