7. Description of Attraction
A very popular, open air restaurant, on a hill top over looking the Akamas Peninsula. The view from the restaurant is reputed to be one of the best in Cyprus and you can't fail to see why. Surrounded by fruit plantations and with a breathtaking view of the unspoilt beach's and deep blue sea.

The restaurant serves a perfectly cooked and delicious souvla daily, consisting of pork and chicken served with a jacket potato or wedges, village salad and bread. It is a licensed restaurant and all other beverages are also available.

The restaurant is well shaded by flowering shrubs and vines providing a unique setting. There is plenty of seating with different arrangements and all of the table tops are large slabs of solid stone, just think Flintstones and you have the picture. There is no menu and visitors don't expect one, which all adds to the charm and ambiance of the restaurant.
