We visited this smart looking restaurant situated on the coast road in Argaka and were not disappointed. Being March, and chilly in the evening, there were two fires roaring away inside. Although relatively quiet we were welcomed warmly. The menu is typically Cypriot but the dishes were of high quality. Beef Stifado was very very good as was Chicken a... More

We went to Cyprus with our grown up children and this holiday was a very special time. What made it even more special was the amazing food we enjoyed at this restaurant! We visited this place on 4 occasions for our evening meals and were never disappointed. It is exceptionally clean, warm and welcoming with a friendly atmosphere! The staff... More

Out for a Saturday afternoon drive along the coast road and stopped off at Santa Barbara. Saturday was carnival day and there was lots of children and families arriving. Very good service, prompt and attentive. Food freshly prepared and arrived quickly Nice relaxed setting opposite the unspoilt coast. Would recommend and return.

A friendly, modern place, family run, situated in Argaka. They can cater for gluten free diet, just ask and they can adjust accordingly. Niki was running the place whilst the owners were away and she was very helpful with all my questions. I had the Greek omelet with ham and hand cut chips with rosemary!! Mouth watering. Give it a...

I've been visiting Cyprus for 15 years and have eaten in many of the restaurants during this time, but the food is second to none. Combine that, with the atmosphere that is created by gratuitous hosts George and Andrea, alongside the stunning, sunset, beach location creates a warm and welcoming environment, which is great for families and couples alike. Beautiful... More

This is a wonderful place to visit during summer or winter months. It's location is the standout factor close to the beach for summer then inside with an open fire for winter. Staff amazing. Owners go out of their way to be friendly and welcoming. Food is a mix of European and Greek. Can't fault Anything worth the drive to... More

We have just returned from our annual visit to Cyprus and, to our shame, although we have explored extensively, this was our first visit to the Argaka area and it was pure luck that we found this little jewel of a bar/restaurant. The welcome was friendly and helpful but not falsely effusive, important to me as I am disabled. The... More

We visited this restaurant in early November and were very pleased with the surroundings and the service and the food was delightful, very tasty and plenty of it. Lots of places had closed at the end of October but this was a good find, well worth a visit if your in the area.

Reliable, friendly, and with a broad menu, this restaurant always seemed popular. The fact it has a mix of inside, outside covered, and on the grass, makes it a nice setting – and the 4-5 steps down to the beach and a handful of sunbeds all made this a venue we came back to several times on our holiday. It’s... More
