“Lovely place & host”

Reviewed 3 May 2018

We have stayed 5 times in the village and eat at Iris Taverna nearly every night we stay! The host-Dimitris-is a very friendly man who looks after his customers well. Many of the Cypriot specialities and grills are on the menu, including dips. One night I asked for pastourma, but it was not available, but the next night Dimitri had it as he had been and bought some for me that day-it's that kind of place! The grills are all perfectly cooked by Nikos-we enjoyed pork and chicken souvlaki, sheftalia and lamb chops. The moussaka was also delicious and they make an excellent village salad. All of course, was washed down with Cypriot wine. The prices at this very friendly place are also very reasonable. On our second night a local lad came in with a bouzouki and we were asked to join Dimitri and friends at their table where we had a performance of traditional bouzouki music and a sing-a-long with those songs we knew( sort of!). We were vey sad to leave after our 7 nights in the village.

We are residents in Cyprus and have visited the Iris several times both as a couple and also with various walking groups. On every occasion the welcome has been warm and the quality of the food far superior to many other tavernas in the area. Dimitris and his team are quite happy to cater for vegetarians (his wife is one) and to accommodate food allergies if notified of them. Importantly for us the Iris is very dog friendly with plenty of convenient spots for them to be sheltered within sight whilst you eat but where they won't disturb other customers. The taverna also uses many products sourced from the village which are of excellent quality. In short if you want to experience Cypriot food and hospitality at its best give the Iris a try. Prices are also very reasonable.

This place is amazing! The host, Dimitrius, is a one of a kind individual (and well known in Cyprus :) ) The food is fabulous, very tasty, the portions are enormous and the surroundings are very authentic. We loved this restaurant so much that we went there twice on our 4 day stay nearby!! Strongly recommend!!!

We have eaten many times here during our 4 stays in the village and we always get a lovely welcome back from the owner Dimitris. The grilled food is always available and grilled to perfection-this time we had souvlaki, sheftali and fabulous lamb chops. The usual Greek dips are always good-especially the tahini and they make a lovely Greek salad. Local wine is served in a carafe and the prices are reasonable. Demitris is a genial host who speaks excellent English. When you get the menu, you will need to ask what's on as some dishes may not be available (otherwise I would have given it 5 stars for the food) and/or Demitris may have some specials. Go there, you will love this typical village taverna which is visited by locals and tourists alike. The taverna is open every night for dinner and is also open on Sundays for lunch and dinner. See my other review for driving directions.
