Each time we have been greeted with friendliness, staff are knowledgeable about the menu, and it you want something slightly different, and they can do it, they will make it for you. The atmosphere warm, friendly and jovial, The background music is not imposing and adds to the feel... More

First port of call in the day is to the friendly welcome of this water front spot. A good English breakfast for a few euros and a fine beer for afterwards.

my wife and I went to Cypriana for a cup of tea and a lemonade for the wife. We were tempted with crepes and Ice cream, I am pleased we tried them beautiful and tasty. The waiter George was very friendly and helpful wish he could teach a lot of restaurants how to be the same as him.

This is the best Greek night I've ever been to. Maria Mamos George the team are brilliant and the mezze was mouth watering. The food just keeps oncoming and every dish was amazing. The entertainment was second to none and includes fire dancing and a fab chair dance. The mezze you're getting an absolute bargain and I'd recommend anyone travelling... More

This place is a must....Maria, Manos and George are without a doubt the friendliest hard working, fun hosts. On our first night we arrived late, but when we walked in when they were about to close they welcomed us and we're happy to cook a delicious meal. We have been back many times and it's always the same warm welcome.... More
