This is authentic Cyprus food in a great setting. Maria has a great formula and we enjoyed the veggie delight and pork meatballs along with salads, bread and dips. At the price you won't find better value either!

I don't know what is "real" Greek food, but lunch today was propably it. As a starter salad + bread + some rice stuff + cheese was worth every cent (1€/person) Main course (kleftiko) didn't look very good, but taste was just great. :D Also...More

Traditional Cypriot Cuisine and Good Service! We had lunch at “Maria’s Restaurant in Vavatsinia in February, and I was surprised with the huge portions. None of us could eat the whole dish and we asked Maria to pack the rest for home. Wonderful surroundings out in the nature with lush vegetation and singing of birds all over. If it would have been summer it would be a paradise! The restaurant serves Traditional Cypriot cuisine and I have only good words to say for the service and the quality of what we had been served. I can strongly recommend it, although I know that this spot out here near Vavatsinia is already very popular to Cypriots and not only.
