Our fourth visit – excellent as usual!

We found a couple of new eating places in Kouklia, approx 15 minutes drive from the villa towards Paphos.  The first night we tried Gabriel’s Tavern which was good, it caters for tourists!  On our second visit the restaurant was full so we tried Efraim Tavern, which is next door to Gabriel’s.  It is a tavern frequented mainly by Cypriots.  The owner was very friendly and chatted to us about events in the village.  The food was superior to Gabriel’s, too much to eat and very cheap!  It was great to escape the busy tourist locations and to venture into more authentic Cyprus and to have the opportunity to engage with the locals at a different level.  There are several more tavernas behind the main square, we only did only see this on the second visit as initially it looks like a very small village.  Thursday night is Cyprus night – imagine it must be fun!

Would definitely recommend to friends and family!
