How I heard of this place: We were driving through Limassol and decided to make a quick stop for lunch. Chris had me pull the rental car over as soon as he spotted the first option.

Type of cuisine: Traditional Yugoslavian and seafood.

Ambiance: The sliding glass doors (windowed) along the entire front of the establishment, open completely to allow for patio-seating indoors. The terra cotta planters outside creating a warm and homey space next to the house-shaped, wooden menu display board. Inside, the pink-hued, tiled floors lead up against the pistachio green walls decorated with framed black and white photographs, tables are lined with yellow cloths and blue/white gingham runners. The white, plastic chairs allow for semi-comfortable seating, in the cool breeze of the spring air.  Indoors, the space is warm, white ceilings and pale blue walls set against the coral-colored large tiles, tables lined with sky blue cloth and blue/white gingham runners. White plates, turquoise napkins and silverware grace the tables and get you set to enjoy the complimentary bread.

What I ordered: To start, we selected the Urnebes (€3.50), creamy cheese with paprika and garlic, and the Kiparska Salata (€4.50), the Cyprus Village Salad with tomato, cucumber, red onions, cabbage, green pepper, feta cheese and olives. For the main entree, Chris selected the Grilled Sea Prim (€12) served whole with Jacked Potatoes (baked potato) and vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower and carrots). I opted for something which resembled the actual fish less, and ordered the Grilled Swordfish steak (€10) , served with the same sides.

What I loved: The salad. Every salad I have ordered up until this point (and throughout the entire trip) looked and tasted like it was prepared only upon being ordered. The crunchy cucumbers, the juicy tomatoes, crisp red bell peppers and pungent onions all came together in a lemon vinaigrette that was light, fresh and perfect on a warm spring afternoon.

Why I loved it: Fresh food, prepared upon ordering in a casual and inviting environment.

Cost: Low to average (€10-€12 per entree)
