Although a great number of tavernas and bars have either welcomed us, or at least turned a blind eye to the big black beast lying under my chair, I wanted to recommend a few in particular, individually. I mainly want to recommend those places that have done a little bit extra to make us feel welcome. Some of the places, however, will make the list by virtue of being at least semi dog-friendly, and just really nice places to eat/drink.

We checked if it was ok to have Sage come in, and they were fine about it. Another woman came in a bit later with a golden lab, and seemed like they were regulars there. The taverna is mostly outside, with tables on a sheltered platform above the beach. It is all a bit sandy, which takes the pressure off when arriving with a beast.
We ate a very reasonable pork steak, and fish (grilled octopus and prawns), and Sage finished off various prawn heads and whatever else fell her way under the table. The food was good, the atmosphere was lovely, the view was great, and dogs are welcome. We paid around 10E per head for one course, salad, and several beers.
My photos are not great (another good excuse to go back), but I did find some nice photos and positive reviews on TripAdvisor, and from this website: http://www.exclusively-cyprus.com/restaurants3.htm
