|At Neromilos Restaurant, Pera Pedi|
At first we thought the Czech place was closed as we couldn't find the entrance. It turned out they had built up a barricade of chairs so that their own dogs could enjoy a bit of a run around while the restaurant was empty.
The owner was very friendly to Sage. She spent a long time petting her and playing with her. She was clearly a dog lover. I think she said she had at least 2 dogs of her own, although we didn't see them.
It seemed that the customers knew the owner and the place well, and it was generally a popular place. I liked that several groups were spending the afternoon drinking tea from elaborate matching tea sets - not something I am used to seeing in Cyprus!
The food was good, although I wish I had been more adventurous now. We ordered lamb ribs and souvlaki, both of which were tasty, but the portions were quite small for the prices (from 10 Euros for a main dish). They were served with mashed potato, which was also a new experience for me in Cyprus. I liked the strange mix of cultures, but I think I would have preferred to try a traditional Czech dish. The menu said they cook goulash on particular days (Fridays, I think), and there were some dishes you could order in advance.
This was an easy, welcoming, cool and shady place to bring our dog after a long morning around the Troodos mountains.
