But , that evening we were all on a serious piscatorial mission and continued on to clean plates that had once offered wood grilled Sea bass with a lemon butter sauce, not forgetting the grilled prawns marinated with lemon grass olive oil and with just the right splash of lime.
Carnivores can with confidence sink teeth into Vangelis’s wood grilled rib eye steak which at 22 Euros a pop isn’t that bad considering the prime quality of the raw ingredients. It’s also nice to see rabbit stifado on the menu. Here it’s cooked with wild mushrooms and juniper berries and even on a warm summers evening the kitchen was turning out several plates of this home cooked speciality to eager Thumper fans.
There is also a gourmet mezze on offer for folk who wish to sample most of the menu in miniature and although the prices aren’t exactly on a par with a standard mezze house the superior quality and cooking you get here makes Old Town quite rightly an upmarket eatery, and you can eat here for under 25 EU and still have a memorable meal for all the right reasons.
For pudding don’t mess around just go straight for the cake of the day either honey or homemade almond, after all, one might just need an instant sugar rush if travelling back to Pafos. The next morning a neighbour asked why I would drive all that way just to have supper, (he by the way eats only frozen chips). My response – ‘If I was a few decades younger and bereft of transport, I’d damn-well jog the 29.3 kilometres to Polis just to relish this man’s cooking’.” –Jill Campbell Mackay, Cyprus Mail
