Fantastic steak at Kantara on Dekhelia road. Also good steak at Goodfellows down Gregory Afxentiou Ave (road that goes down to the police station in Larnaca) Goodfellows is a bit different as it is covered with classic pictures of film memorabilia and the food is titled with the characters etc from the film Goodfellows!! Service great too in both!
Hi Dawn....I'd also recommend the Kantara, great for that special occasion.
More everyday I'd go for Bambos, on the main road in Xylotymbou, off Junction 60 of the A3, up by Dhekalia.
Good food at good prices, they shut on Monday's
We shall be there in two weeks for a mixed grill.
Hope you and Dave are both well
Ian & Rita

La Veranda for general Steaks etc.
Vlachos Tavern or Marcos for Meze
Taj Pavilion for Indian
Lambros for Fish & Chips as mentioned in other threads
Casa Mia for Italian
Aztecas for Mexican
Kantara is also good, but not as good as La Veranda in my opinion.
Flavours Stonegrill in town centre is pretty good, you can cook your own if you like, but the steaks they cook are also very good.
The best steak I've had anywhere in Cyprus was in Cambanella's Argetinian Steak House (next to Masalas), but I went there at the weekend and it's closed down & gone like it was never there! Anyone know what's happened to it?
Ali's Bar near the Pergamos border is also worth a visit if you're on a budget and are not bothered that it looks like it's falling down. Expect to pay under £15 for 2 good meals with drinks.
Ones I would personally not go back to are:
Lily Wong's Chinese - worst Chinese I have ever had!
Vettrianos - average food at above average prices.
Surf & Turf - better steaks in other places that also offer more choice.
I meant to add that we like Masalas for indian. Although have heard excellent comments about Taj Pavillion.
My hubby has been to Casa Mia on the strip and said it was a good Italian. Im yet to get him to take me there!
I've heard poor reports about the restaurant above Pizza Hut (forgotten the name) on Larnaca strip. Its ooposite Palm Beach hotel.
We can also highly recommend Bambos in Xylotympou - the pork chops are sensational. It was originally recommended to me by my brother who was based in Dhekelia during his Army years and it is well used by the locals - which is always a good sign. In fact, when we were there a few years ago, we were the only Brit couple in there!
I must have just had a bad experience at Bamboos then- there was a Christening going on there and they had a buffet laid out, but we were there before, ordered a meze and it was truly awful- the worst meal ive had in cyprus in 13 years ive holidayed/lived here and i had wanted to try it because of recommendations. I realise that the Christening may have taken up there cooking time but i'd rather had been turned away then dished up the c**p that we were dished up!!
I tried Taj Pavillion
Fiery chicken wings ,for starter Dave had chicken Tikka
wasnt impressed ...not very spicey
chicken jalfrazei (sp) And lamb jalfrazei very good better then some in the uk
Naan bread and rice very good
Also tried Marcos, been taken over by lovely couple shes english hes cyprit its co owned with the Taj Pavillion
Had t bone sreakand gammon steak both meals excelent
ans nothing to much trouble for the couple
both worth a try Dawn
