Restaurant Lysia, Dhekkelia road, 4 Ammochostou, Larnaca Cyprus
Fun story for me, because on my very first trip ever to Cyprus, about 5 years ago I went to this restaurant with my wife> I remember the good traditional food and then made myself a promise to come back here one day. Now writing this blog and also being in the same area of Cyprus, you can imagine I need to go back !!!
So what did I eat this night? (and yes, I did order this all…..alone…..)
Grilled Halloumi (you cannot visit Cyprus without eating this dish….). I had grilled Feta as well…. the homemade specialty Stifado and the 1 dish I remembered, grilled veggies with a cheesy crust….yummie !! And of course as a wine just 1 option, the Greek Retsina by Kourtaki…!!!
Good /Bad points:
+ No tourist trap or sleazy salesmen on the street, even being close to the big hotels.
+ Real authentic food with homemade meals
– The menu is a bit simple and misses inspiration
– The grilled cheese both could be better grilled, just a little longer and browner would be better…
– The service was correct, but as in most foreign countries way, way to fast. No time to enjoy the weather or meal in this tempo…
Food: 7.4 – average, traditional, correct but I rememebered better form the first time….
Coziness: 6.5 – in style, hard chairs, close to the road, but I can have it here.
staff: 8 – very warm people, very quick, good english, helpful, only so damn quick…..
Price: 7.3 – Local price, but Cyprus is expensive, so to much for this food, good price for this location….
Overall: 7.3 which sums it up, not bad, not great, just good and average
