The Square Tavern, also known as Strappos (after the owner) is predictably located in the main square, surrounded by the cafeneia, the local coffee shops. A family run restaurant, you are greeted by Louis, the owner's son, who is also the head chef. Eleni, his sister is the efficient waitress. Simple traditional decoration there are no airs and graces here. The open-plan kitchen gets top marks.
I don't think you can get a menu here. Louis comes along and asks what you would like. The food, typical of Cypriot cuisine, comprises of a choice of fish and grilled meats, souvlaki of course is a favourite and traditional dishes made on the day. You will have to ask what's available.
|Traditional Cypriot: Grilled halloumi and lountza (smoked pork)|
|Cyprus potatoes make the best chips|
Expect to pay around €15pp (appr £13pp) without drinks.
