More a takeaway than a restaurant.
They have a steady stream of people popping in to collect orders.
They put tables out in the street in the evening. A bit of a novelty, having scooters and cars passing a couple of feet from your table. ( 'Couple' may be a bit of an exageration! )
Nice grub though.
Nice couple running it, too.

Kalifazia, as Vasos says on his card is a 'good place for food' As well as tourist trade, a good portion of his buisness is local Cypriot. If you like grilled food, this is the place to go.

If I come to Cyprus for a quick one week visit ( without my partner ) I'm one of those "steady stream of people popping in to collect orders "
It's good food at excellent prices ---- and it's nice when both Vasos and his wife recognise my voice on the telephone even if I haven't been in Cyprus for months.
I must have regular customer status now Very Happy

I have been going into Vassos for over 15 years now on my holidays and now residence and I can find no fault with their food what so ever, in fact its top class for kebabs. An old friend of his introduced me ther and I have been a customer ever since.......Maggie Larnaca

I spoke to Vassos a couple of weeks ago, he is looking to sell the place. I hope that when he finds a buyer, the new owner will be as dedicated to quality as Vassos.

It is not hard to find, if you come up from the seafront towards the Lazarus church, take the left fork in the road and proceed straight ahead. The Kalifazia is on the corner of the first street from the left. We were there last night, my wife had a salad(she's on a permanent diet), I had Sheftalias, and our friends had pork chops, all very good and very reasonably priced. I've missed placed his card or you could have phoned Vassos for better directions.

I think as far as quality and service, you cant beat Vassos. Of all the places we have eaten, we have never had a bad meal with him. He takes care of the customers and only serves what he would eat himself. Admittadly it may not be the most romantic of places, but for good food, he cant be beat.

Looks like the Kalafaztia, along with several other bars and restaurants in the Larnaca tourist area is being hit by the recession. I remember last winter Vassos and his wife would still be in the restaurant cleaning up at 1:00 AM several nights a week. Now when I walk by, the place is closed and dark by 10 PM.

This is bad news. I have been going there for around 20 years now and have always found their food spot on. Still at least they are still open, just have to go there earlier by the looks of it.....Maggie Larnaca
