Very nice decor and ambience. The staff were not trained to deliver high quality service which therefore did not much the quality of food and atmosphere. Overall we had a good time. This is the best restaurant we have been so far in Platres.

On a sunny day in early November we visited Platres for the first time and decided to try lunch at the Skylight restaurant, which we had read about. As a family group of four adults, our expectations were exceeded by the generous portions of varied and delicious Cypriot food, and the delightful terrace with its mountain view. As a bonus... More

We stopped off at the Skylight restaurant on our excursion through the Troodos Mountains, it was absolutely lovely here. We sat down to be greeted with bottles of the locally produced wines, along with a spread of bread, salads, houmous, tzatziki. The waiters then brought out a selection of chicken, halloumi, pork, kofte, and bowls of chips. We all tucked... More

I have a feeling they are trying to set themselves up like a fine dining restaurant and their prices reflect that. However I can't say that the quality of the food was represented in that sense. There is a complimentary dessert bar though...

We were recommended by a guide we met at the Kykkos Monastery and were not disappointed. The host Helen was very welcoming and the food was excellent. They even had a complimentary dessert bar with fruit and cakes. Highly recommended if you are in the area.

A very filling Meze, lots of food, defeated us in the end, the stifado was the best but most other things were great also. The chicken and Pork kebabs maybe a bit dry. Lovely local wine and a pleasant place to sit.

I had thought there might be a view from the restaurant but sadly not. Food was ok though the fillets of fish still had plenty of bones to make eating very tedious. Portions are large so don't bother with starters. Staff seemed thin on the ground so service wasn't particularly punctual Apart from all that it was quite nice.

We were staying at the flats in front of the restaurant, and the owner suggested us to go there, since he said they were open all year long and not only for tourists. We thought he would suggest the restaurant because he was their neighbour and he wanted to do them a favour, but he was right. The restaurant is... More

We visited the place last Thursday early for late lunch so not too many people. Food was served on time and was tasty. Only negative is that there is no kids menu. We had to order three normal pastas for 3 young children which cost 10 euros each. Half of them were leftover. Kids menu is a must for this... More

I don't usually leave a negative review but the service was really poor. I had to leave the table several times to go and find the waitress to order. They don't pay attention to you and the dessert I ordered took very long. The food was good but the lava cake dessert was really small and not as good as... More
