Local and family run tavern with good food and service. There are lots of Cypriot dishes on the menu and the hospitality is also typically Cypriot - friendly and welcoming.

I had the stefado and there was far too much food - it was lovely. Friends had the Mezze and it just kept on coming. Off the beaten track a bit but worth it.

What a lovely place. Traditional restaurant where the food is first class, and the staff, owner can't do enough for you. A great family run place. You won't be disappointed. I had a back problem and the owner got one of his staff to drive me back to our villa when we were ready to go home. Need I say... More

If you are somewhat disappointed with regular restaurants in Cyprus then treat yourself to a meal at Yannis before you leave! A bit far from beaches but their nice atmosphere and special attention to every dish they serve (and they do have variety and are accomodating reasonable requests) will give you what is missing in many other places we have...

We took a drive up into the mountains, had been recommended this local tavern by some friends that live in Peyia. Well worth the visit, excellent fun, amazing meze and great value. The owner is very personable and good fun - won't let you leave without your fair share of local zivania!

We had intended to visit a different taverna but it was closed so we unexpectedly went to Yiannis Taverna. We had a very warm welcome from Yiannis personally. His delightful young children were competent and charming waiter and waitress. The menu is very varied, the portions are enormous and Yiannis gave us dessert and liqueurs on the house. A wonderful...

A fantastic place. Great ambience. The Restaurant was full with lively chit chat and laughter, a great atmosphere. All traditional Greek memorabilia, and decor. The food, All Home made, was the best food we've tasted in Cyprus, so far.. We had The Stifado, and Moussaka, with stuffed mushrooms to start.... All Amazing... We had The Village locally produced white wine,... More
