Larnaca’s most iconic street is home to a multitude of cafés, bars and restaurants; Phinikoudes does not suffer from a lack options but few have stood the test of time as well as The Brewery Bar & Restaurant.
With variety being high on the list of requirements for any establishment these days, The Brewery offers a number of choices when it comes to eating and drinking, leaving even its frequent visitors with a lengthy decision on their hands.
As you might have guessed from the name, The Brewery is well known for the wide variety of beers on offer, anything from strawberry flavoured to chocolate. Beer can also be requested on tap, with servings up to four litres too, very convenient for those who’d rather not have to call the waiter for a refill every so often.
The food menu is just as diverse; the kitchen serves up the traditional local dishes but also meals from various parts of the world such as Morocco, Thailand, China and Mexico. The quality of the food is top notch more often than not; however, the prices, for the current climate are slightly on the high side for the everyday consumer.
The interior is slick, with an all-wooden theme giving the place an old Irish pub vibe while the outside area, covered in the winter time is slightly more modern. For those still feeling the cold at night, heaters are installed throughout the establishment while sports fans will be glad to hear that a number of TV screens display all major events throughout the year.
For those enjoy shisha, The Brewery offers a wide range of flavours, and their very own hookah specialist is happy to help out picking a particular one. Though it is offered in countless different bars in town, this one stands out in terms of quality. There is also the possibility of adding fruit juice to the base as well as an ice-cold handle for added freshness.
While the prices of both food and beer are rather steep, a number of deals are on offer for various days of the week. Reservations can also be made but this is only necessary for large gatherings as it rarely fills to its capacity.
