    It's not a trip to Cyprus unless you have sampled a visit to the Keo Beer & Wine distillery on Franklin Roosevelt Avenue....

    However, I would seriously suggest you take a taxi from your hotel as you will not be fit to drive after you have finished the brewery tour!

    Arrive at the brewery no later than 09.45hrs weekdays only. The tour starts at 10.00hrs and you will be taken around the brewery & bottling plant, the winery and distillery. It takes around 1 hour to complete.

    Afterwards, you will be taken to the refrectory where you will be provided with bottles of Keo, red & white wine to drink. Also you will sample the Five Kings brandy and the locally produced Commanderia (a fortified wine).

    TIP - make sure you have breakfast before you visit otherwise you will be falling down drunk if you don't.

    Erimi Kitchen is situated on the old Limassol to Paphos road at the entrance or exit of Erimi village (depending which way you are heading, of course).

    There is a varied menu from traditional Cypriot dishes to good old fish 'n chips! (They even server Pukka Pies, if you like that sort of thing). Serves childrens meals also.

    Tables are set with blue & white chequered tablecloths.

    Andy (Andreas), one of the waiters there looks like Steven Segal ;-)

    Restaurant & Takeaway. Have a drink while you wait...

    Opens
    Mon - Sat
    11.30am - 2.30pm and 6pm - 10pm
    Sunday closed all day.

    Favorite Dish: We always go for the cod, chips and (mashy) peas.

    I'm sure that chippy fish never tasted this good back in UK.

    We meet up with 2 of our friends on Tues evenings for a couple of beers while we wait for our takeaway to be cooked....

    When hiring a car in Cyprus - ALWAYS tell them you will return the car with a FULL tank of fuel.

    Car hire companies charge a higher price for a complete tank of fuel when you collect & sign for the car - usually a minimum of Cy£20 for a small engine car.

    When you fill it up yourself - you will find that Cy£20 is way too much for a car with an engine of less than 1400cc.

    Remember, petrol stations close for half day on Weds & Sat lunchtimes and all day Sunday - but you can pay at machines situated at the pumps before you dispense your petrol. You can use your credit card, debit card or cash.

    If unsure how much your tank will hold - put less money in the machine and keep some Cy£1 notes handy. That way, you can always add extra fuel if necessary to fill the tank before you either leave it at the airport or return to the car hire office.

    Favorite thing: Be prepared for Accidents and/or Emergencies on Holiday......

    It can happen to anyone of us and you should take all necessary precautions before travelling to an unfamiliar destination.

    There is a great website that is able to help you take preventative measures or to at least have as much necessary information to hand as possible, just in case the unforseen should happen.

    The site provides a download of a leaflet by PDF file (there is a charge) or by 32 page booklet (again, there is a charge).

    All of the Country & Destination guides are researched and edited on a regular basis - hence the charge for the guides. When you place an order for a guide, it is first checked & verified before being sent to you either by mail or download link.

    Why not see if your destination is listed?

    Visit - http://www.fisherstravelsos.com/ to verify the details now.......
