Adamos: A long tradition
I was looking for a traditional taverna to have a lunch. What was my surprise when I get in and began to talk to the ladies in Greek. They kindly told me, in English, they were from Russia and had no knowledge of the Greek language. I have found this very strange and I was thinking to go out because I had came to Cyprus to eat traditional food made by locals. Fortunatelly the owner, a local gentleman, who had lived in South Africa and had known some Portuguese there, began to cook and I had an interesting chat with him.
I just ordered keftedes, meat balls. They were supposed to come with salad and fried potatoes, but I prefered them with salad only.
This taverna has a good selection of national wines, but I choose the KEO beer. The food was very tasty, and I was not disappointed.
It is a place I strongly recommend, especially for the long tradition.
Lefkara Hotel and Restaurant: Local Dishes and Mediterranean Cuisine!
If you really want to make a difference I suggest that you go straight to the “Lefkara Hotel and Restaurant” in Pano Lefkara.
The Management of the Restaurant are passionate about the food being served here!
When I was here the first time there was a chef in the kitchen, but on my recent trip to Lefkara I came here and noticed some differences. There is no longer the old chef but the cuisine is just as good and this time there is a lady in the kitchen who cooks home-made dishes. I loved everything I tried.
Nacia is the new cook and she makes excellent Soutzoukakia for 11 euros.
Papoutsakia which is filled aubergine costs 11 euro as well, and kebab will cost you 9.50.
The Lefkaritiki salad that includes a mixture of veggies is very interesting and tasty and it costs 8 euros while the potato salad is at 6.50 euros.
A small beer costs 3 and the big one 5.
Barrel wine costs 4 euro.
When you come to this place, I am sure you will want to return again and again and even what to spend a day or two at this beautiful Agro elegant hotel. I would not change it for anyother in Pano Lefkara!

Tavern C & P Takeaway: Avoid this Grill Restaurant in Pano Lefkara
While in Lefkara I decided to have some Cypriot Kebabs so I asked to be shown where to go for the best kebab and sheftalia in the village.
I was urged to come to this restaurant and I was completely disappointed by the ignorance of the owner.
I was brought burnt sheftalia on the outside and inside the meat was still red. It was not possible to eat it. He was sitting watching a film with a friend of his about 6 metres from where I was, - I was the only customer that moment, and I told him that the meat needs some more time on the grill because it is pink inside. The answer I got was that this is the colour of meat when cooked and he ingnored me for some 5 minutes.
Suddenly after some time from the place where he was he asked me if I wanted him to put the sheftalia on the grill again.
I was so angry because he did not bother to come and check. If I had them put a second time on the grill they would have been burnt completely as they were already black on the outside.(See photo)
So, I suggest that you pick another place to eat and avoid completely this one.
I still cannot understand how such a person with such irresponsibility can run a business!!
