Whilst in Cyprus earlier this year we visited quite a few restaurants. What can I say it’s lovely to eat out when you can. One of the restaurants we visited was Kanas Restaurant. This restaurant has been located in Paralimni for years proving it popular with the locals and tourists.
This restaurant serves a range of dishes including sheftalia, one of my favourites. These are like a sausage but instead of using a sausage skin they use the membrane that surrounds the stomach of a pig or lamb. This membrane itself doesn’t have much in the way of flavour, its purpose is to hold together the contents. Sheftalia are very tasty and are most often made of pork and combined with onion and parsley. These are normally served with salad and chips or in a pitta with tomatoes, onions and parsley. If you try these make sure you squeeze some lemon over as it really adds to the flavour.
Squid rings are always popular especially with children. Although these would have been made from frozen squid the batter was quite tasty and the squid itself was tender. Again these are great with a squeeze of fresh lemon.
Fresh Deep Fried Squid. A little chewier than the rings this fresh squid was quite nice and tasty but be warned when you order this you get all parts of the squid including legs. If you prefer not to have these you are better off ordering the rings.
The atmosphere here is relaxed and staff are very welcoming and friendly. This restaurant does get busy over the weekends when those in the towns come to the beach so either book, turn up early or come during the week. Just to add for those with kids or that want to email home etc, these guys have free WiFi which you can log into. Super handy when you have kids as you can feed them then sit them to watch Peppa Pig so you can enjoy your meal in peace, fabulous!
My score 3.5 – 4 / 5
