Food & Drink
I can recommend 3 and they are not "touristy taverns"
1. Savvas Tavern - Peyia
Lovely couple who run it (Savvas and Eleni). Always had excellent food with Kleftico and Suckling Pig their specialities (but its all good)
Call them on 99619899
2. Peyia Tavern - Peyia
Run by Michallis and his wife. Best grilled meze you will have - the contents haven't changed in over 20 years
Call them on 26621077
3. 7 St. George's - Geroskipou
Run by George and his sons. Best non-grilled meze you will have. The contents change throughout the year with seasonal vegetables, etc. Nearly everything is grown by him and is almost all organic (including the wine). His policy - he will bring you food, until you say stop .. BUT .. leave some room for his DE-LICIOUS desserts.
Call him on 26963176 or 99655824
I have gone to all three regularly, some for over 18 years now, and have never had a bad meal.
I hope that helps you.
Visited Sykaminia in A.Ambrosios, They have a BAR - Such
fun! The place was buzzing so we splashed out on a meal of Ribs. The best! Once
in London I tasted Ribs like this - Never expected to find them here in Cyprus.
We got chatting to Christos and his grandson Chris who have just renovated the
Taverna two months ago. The menu is great, T-Bone steaks - imported chilled!
Going to try one of those next time. We finished with a lovely selection of
fruit - on the house and a glass of wine but don't expect that - it's 'cos we
Anyway we have decided to make it our local and pop in to the bar a few times a week to meet more lovely people ...... AND a Bottle of good House White is only €7.50 - in danger of not finding our way home!
Savvas Tavern and Peyia Tavern are both in Peyia.
Coming from Paphos, as you get to Coral Bay on your left, you will see a turning on your right to Peyia and then a little roundabout - go sraight over the roundabout and carry on a kilometre or so until you find the second turning for Peyia on your right - the is a stone built park/cafe/restaurant there. Take that turning and follow the road up the hill heading into Peyia. Savvas Tavern will be on your left after about 1 km.
For Peyia Tavern, carry on past Savvas Tavern, into Peyia centre and just before the church you will see it on your right, across the road from The Mill which is a lovely reaxed bar - very non-pretentious with great service.
We always go to the Taverna in Plataniskia. Food is excellent, reasonably priced. A family run taverna (Andrikos & Eleni). Well worth the scenic drive to a quaint village. Take the the road off the motorway to Avdimou and follow road straight up through Agios Thomas. You can sit outside eat your meal and enjoy the view. Just beautful!
