Bar review: Jackson Gastro Cafe-Bar, Larnaca


Larnaca is known for its café culture, with establishments popping up all the time of various different shapes and sizes. So much so that places are opening up not only in the centre of town to meet the local demand but even in areas previously considered a little out the way, yet still to good effect.

Situated in the nearby village of Kiti, Jackson Gastro Cafe-Bar opened last year with the intention of offering a cozy environment to play card games, watch sports events or enjoy quality music.

More than just another café which offers the typical staple menu of a few coffees, beers and snacks, Jackson’s goes the extra mile with top of the range drinks and food menus.

There are 20 different bottled beers to choose from, ranging from local KEO to Czech Kozel while there is an equally lengthy list of top quality malt whiskeys.

The bar screens all of the big local and international sporting events which take place almost on a daily basis. The aptly-named Football Lover’s Platter is a feast which will go down with any avid sports fan during a match: a combination of chicken and vegetable wrap, spicy chicken wings, chicken sticks, mini hot dogs and hot potatoes skewered with tortillas and dips is more than enough to share between a few friends while watching the game.

On top of that, there is anything from filling Salmon dishes to rib-eye steak while they offer a wholesome English breakfast with a free tea, coffee or juice for just €5.

Inside, it is a cozy space with lots of natural light equipped with simple, sleek tables and chairs. Outside, there is a vast open courtyard ideal for catching a bit of a sun now that it is not too strong.

The café hosts people of all age groups; there tends to be lots of youngsters in the late morning who go to play cards, as well as sports fans who attend on weekends for the big matches, while there are also plenty of couples and families who go there for the great food.
