Always made to feel welcome by Paul and his family, without a doubt the best lamb joints in Cyprus. I have tried the pork joints in the past equally delicious.

We dined in this restaurant as a party of 5. We had pre booked roast lamb so our meal was not delayed for any reason. Drinks order was taken and both drinks and food was served within 10 minutes. The food was very good and there were no complaints. What let the restaurant down was the lack of service once... More

The food was beautiful and the portion sizes huge. Value for money is very good here, there were 8 of us and the bill was less the €200. Of which we all had starters, mains, deserts and countless bottles of wine. We loved it so much we came back twice. We would like to thank Paul (George) and his wife... More

We couldn't wait to go back to the Limelight to have the delicious roast lamb, this time we had the leg of lamb. It was so tender. I think it is a very nice restaurant and most of the staff are very pleasant. It is wise to pre book the lamb if that is what you want.
