    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    the restaurant is amazing, it came recommended by the tour reps, but so lived up to it!!
    You hav to book, we just wondered in and were lucky, only having to wait 40 mins cus the Euro 08 final was on, but be sure to book so as not to miss out.
    the food was amazing, and soooo affordable, the other review was wrong about the cost being above average. my mate ordered the pork ribs, at about 9 euro, she literally had half a pig on her plate.
    well worth it

    (plus we got free entry to carwash from our waiter!!)

    Burger King, McDonalds, Pizza Hut, Bake & Bite: Fast Foods

    by inqanta Written Jul 21, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Unfortunately, Ayia Napa and I guess Cyprus at all is not so rich in cuisine. After tasting meze we decidede that we'd better est a little bit cheaper and tastier. And we came to a decision that the easiest and the tastiest way to eat there is fast food. Pay attention to Bake & Bite. They have amazing sandwiches 1-2 CYP for each. And huge salads for the same price.

    Flames Restaurant: An excellent meat meze

    by Avieira67 Updated Apr 6, 2014

    This restaurant was established in 1989 by two brothers, Theo and Peter. They know the secrets of the Cypriot cuisine and know how to receive very well their clients. By the way, it was here I learned about the origin of meze.
    If you have no idea what means meze, just think about small portions of several traditional dishes. Basically, the main course can be either fish or meat. The side dishes range from salads, cooked eggs, to several kind of sauces.
    I was introduced to this restaurant by a local used to visit it. As we were not too much hungry, we ordered the "basic" meze.
    My meat meze included, at least, souvlaki, afelia, stewed diced pork marinated in wine with corinder, stifado, slow cooked beef stew with onions, garlic, tomatoes, cinamon, pepper and vinegar, keftedes, meat balls, koubebkia, stuffed grape leaves with minced meat and rice, grilled lountza, smoked pork loin slice, grilled halloumi chesse, Greek slalad, grilled wild mushrooms, fried zucchini, hummus, tzatziki, Greek yogurt, taramasalata, beetroot and pitta bread.
    They have a good selection on national wines and I was well surprised with the Portuguese apéritif Port win.
    The quality of the food impressed me a lot. It was very tasty. At the end, the owners gifted me with the national five kings brandy.
    If I visit again Aya Napa, surelly I will eat again in this great restaurant and I recommend it a lot..

    FLAMES Restaurant Cafe Bar: Cypriot Cuisine, Excellent hosts, Value for Money!

    by greekcypriot Written Apr 12, 2014

    In an attempt to find an exceptionally good Cypriot restaurant in Agia Napa to please a friend and a guest of mine, I searched a lot and read reviews until I came up with the Flames. I called the owners and booked a table for lunch.

    LOCATION: The restaurant is nicely set and located very close to the Nissi Beach area which is one of my favourite spots in Agia Napa.

    A HEARTY WELCOME: The two brothers proved excellent hosts and when we arrived the welcome was hearty, exactly as I expected it to be. I wanted my friend to feel this genuine Cypriot hospitality.
    The brothers have been running this business for the last 25 years so there is no doubt that they know the work well and they did not let us down.

    THE OWNERS: It is a small family business with Theo a trained Chef and Peter (Panikos) a trained waiter. Their dream was and still is to achieve in every way the best service and through their traditional Cypriot Dishes help tourist in a way, enjoy to the maximum their holidays in Cyprus. This restaurant is their life and they deservedly represent the authentic Cypriot hospitality out there in Ayia Napa.

    CUISINE: The restaurant is popular with traditional Cypriot dishes and not only! There is a whole list of other dishes that are served out here and are enough to make happy the most demanding guest.
    Steaks, Grilled meat, Pasta, Fish and several Vegetarian specialties are some of the rest of the dishes one can find here.

    LUNCH: Well the purpose of this lunch was to have my friend try some nice Cypriot dishes. We did not ask for the usual ones served, I mean olives and pickles, or the minor ones, but asked for the best out of the whole list of ‘meze’. For me what counts is quality and not quantity.

    Panicos brought a platter of different dips at first, and since the time was such and there were no other customers I insisted that he comes and join us. The dips were fantastic and very refreshing.

    Then the rest of the dishes were presented in small plates exactly as the real meze and we had “afelia” which is a local dish made of diced pork marinated in wine with coriander. “Stifado”, “meatballs”, “kupepia” as Cypriots call them. The Greek name that stands for this dish is ‘dolmadakia’ and they are the Staffed Vine Leaves.

    “Souvlaki” is kabab. We were also brought some “Lountza”. It is smoked pork loin in slices. We tried the grilled mushrooms, some fried zucchini, the halloumi Cypriot cheese, Cypriot Salad which was freshly cut and it was obvious that both the cucumber and tomatoes were from the round area. The fried potatoes were exactly as I expected them to be since the area prides for the excellent potatoes which are exported throughout Europe.

    Thanks to the two brothers my friend probably had the opportunity to learn a few more things about the Cypriot cuisine.

    It was a beautiful day so we chose to have lunch outside at the nicely decorated porch.

    There is also a Bar inside the restaurant with a rich variety of beverage. Since the day was sunny we accompanied our lunch with a bottle of the local KEO beer.

    TIP: Don’t expect gourmet dishes out here. Portions are big but they are not gourmet. This is one of the mistakes many tourists do. If you are after gourmet dishes you can find them at 5* hotels and in Signature restaurants in the big cities and expect to pay much as well.

    MEZE: The word MEZE means variety and it comes in small portions similar to the Spanish tapas (appetizers or snacks)

    The story behind goes like this: It all started almost 50 years ago when in small coffee shops in the villages the ladies back then were making coffee for workers at first. Little by little they started having a few orders at the beginning -it could be a fried or a boiled egg, some cheese, olives, or ham etc. As the years went by, these ladies started preparing and serving one or two dishes, -at first their own home meals, so they would serve small portions of these dishes to their customers as well.

    So, little by little ladies added more and more and this is how this kind of ordering set the fashion. In the course of time this had become a trend and nowadays one can also enjoy “Seafood meze” instead of meat or vegetable dishes. Many Seafood tavernas can be found at the village of Zygi by the way.

    IN ALL: Whatever we had was nicely cooked in virgin olive oil coming from the family Panikos said. All dishes were cooked to perfection and we both enjoyed the meal. I can highly recommend the business and long to be back. Thank you guys, continue to be loyal with what you have started doing. You know exactly how to please your customers and you are doing it well.

    Pizza Hut: Good offer on pizzas

    by glamourprincess Written Sep 13, 2006

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dining at Pizza Hut

    Pizza Hut is not the most exciting place to visit when abroad, but when you're in places like Ayia Napa, the choices are few and the food is not impressing, it's not a bad choice. They serve quite good pizzas, and they also have a great offer; eat all you want for a set price. We were not that hungry so we ordered a pizza to share, and it was more expensive than the 'eat all you want'-offer!

  • Any: To many fast food restraunts

    by 1italy Written Jul 1, 2004

    The problem with the food in Ayia Napa is that there is to many fast restraunts, and kebab shops. The best place for food is Protaras which is a town, 10 minutes away, from Ayia Napa, there you will find lots of different types of restraunts such as Italian, Mexican, Chinese but also local food which is fresh such a seafood.
