I get really frustrated when I see unfair and unkind reviews. I have spent 11 days half board at the Semiramis hotel which is also owned by the same person and I kind see for the life off me what that was all about. For starters there is no microwave at the restaurant as one seems to suggest. The other... More

We were extremely dissapointed!!! We got the food very fast but it was awful, from microvawe oven, impossible to eat! Musakka and Kleftiko were too salty and not fresh!! Kleftico consisted of many small pieces, seems like they were from different other plates which were left by other customers. We left hungry because could not eat this food...

Lunch here - a disappointing and over-salted moussaka and tomato salad (which was very good) cost almost as much as dinner the night before in the much better Skylight restaurant.

Unfortunately it's not a good experience to visit this place. The only good was the polite blond waitress, Anna I think was her name. As a person which is living in Cyprus I can say 100 % that the food is not the best quality at all. My partner had a Stifado which wasn't a traditional - some kind of... More

Lovely restaurant. Very welcoming staff. Beautiful view from the balcony. Traditional food doesn't get better than here, and great value for money too.

The owner was sitting at a table with a nice view of the mountains talking to guests on another table. He gestured to us to sit at stable at the back of the restaurant with a dirty table cloth. We should have left then but having driven all day were hungry and tired The food was not very special 3... More

Me and my husband visited today, completely lost and hungry we came across this lovely restaurant. Very friendly staff and the food is absolutely delicious! Not one bad point about this place. We plan on making the almost 2 hour journey for us back up just to eat here again before we leave Cyprus 😊

We had a 4 different courses and everyone was very satisfied. Big portions 😊 We certainly... More

Sits in the street above The Skylight eatery street but hasn't been entered on the TripAdvisor map... slapped bums (in Semiramis Hotel). The food is good, wine good, friendly staff. Currently the car parking outside is free. If staying in Troodos, Platres restaurants have the edge by a mile or even five miles. Keep a bottle of wine in the... More

Agis the owner is a very friendly person, he greeted us and welcomed us although they were about to close, he understood that we were hungry and gave us the best service ever.

“The Village Restaurant” in Platres belongs to Agi Jacovides, the owner of Semiramis Hotel.
I was amazed with the delicious cuisine of Agi and he was telling me that he is cooking everything by himself only. Nobody else helps in the kitchen. He is very passionate with his cooking which he learned from his Mother he said.

One can find mostly Traditional Cypriot cuisine here and from what I found out from the little chat I had with other people, everyone likes it here. Prices are affordable and portions quite big.
From what I have seen the Restaurant is very popular both with Cypriots who come to Platres by coaches and the restaurant is full each day, but also it is popular with tourists who come to Platres and enjoy his Cypriot cuisine.

Mousaka costs 10 euro, Kalamari (squid) 8.50, Steak port chop 7.50, Koupepia –stuffed vine leaves 9 euro. A beer will cost you 2.50 euro and a carafe of wine 75ml costs 7.50 euro.
I found the prices reasonable, and because everything used here is freshly cut I can strongly recommend it. Agi will do his best to have his customers happy.
The view from the Restaurant is panoramic, but the inside décor is also great.
