I was brought here by one of the companies which offers a jeep tour along the Troodos Mountains. We had the Cypriot Mezze. Right from the beginning, the food was very disappointing. The salad had way too much oil. We found there was at least...More

Slightly off the main route through Platres, but worth finding. Friendly staff, great houmous, and hallouimi. Fantastic views from the balcony. Parking right out front.

“The Village Restaurant” in Platres belongs to Agi Jacovides, the owner of Semiramis Hotel.
I was amazed with the delicious cuisine of Agi and he was telling me that he is cooking everything by himself only. Nobody else helps in the kitchen. He is very passionate with his cooking which he learned from his Mother he said.

One can find mostly Traditional Cypriot cuisine here and from what I found out from the little chat I had with other people, everyone likes it here. Prices are affordable and portions quite big.
From what I have seen the Restaurant is very popular both with Cypriots who come to Platres by coaches and the restaurant is full each day, but also it is popular with tourists who come to Platres and enjoy his Cypriot cuisine.

Mousaka costs 10 euro, Kalamari (squid) 8.50, Steak port chop 7.50, Koupepia –stuffed vine leaves 9 euro. A beer will cost you 2.50 euro and a carafe of wine 75ml costs 7.50 euro.
I found the prices reasonable, and because everything used here is freshly cut I can strongly recommend it. Agi will do his best to have his customers happy.
The view from the Restaurant is panoramic, but the inside décor is also great.
