It's so nice to hear that there are still people like Peri who endeavour to preserve tradition. The photos are gorgeous!

I have been there twice and really loved everything! I was very impressed by their wine list consisting only of our great Cyprus wines. I'd love to go more often, but it's a bit expensive.


My goodness what a nice place!!! Great photos Anastasia :-)


I've heard of the Archontiko Papadopoulou and the excellent job that has been done there. I'd really love to visit!

J'adore les vieilles maisons et je vois là une architecture très differente de nôtre. A part ça, il semmble que les bons vins et la gastronomie n'est pas seulement le privilège des Français!! :-) Les photos sont vraiment sublimes!!!

Πανέμορφο το αρχοντικό! Μου θυμίζει κάποια παλιά αρχοντικά που έχουμε στη Θράκη - δυστυχώς πολύ λίγα έχουν διατηρηθεί.


The mansion is awesome!Thanks for sharing a part of your culture and traditions. Gastronomy, has been the joy of all peoples through the ages. It produces beauty and wit and goes hand in hand with goodness of heart and a consideration of others.

What a beautiful place! As for the food....hmmmm, sounds a bit strange to me!!!

This place is a real work of art! I love to visit old houses and learning about their history. Also, like any form of art, gastronomy or pottery is creation and communicate culture, traditions and civilizations. Thank you Anastasia for sharing these great pictures.

I am very impressed with so much attention to detail when refurbishing the mansion. Now if I had to choose one of the dishes in the photos, I'd definitely have the octopus!

Demetris Vrontis

Thank you Anastasia and all of you for you lovely words and comments.

We aim for superb quality, fresh ingredients and everything (including bread, pasta, ravioli) are done in house. As far as the mansion was restored with great love and passion.

We look forward to seeing you all at Archontiko Papadopoulou.

Thanks again

Demetris and Peri


I always have tears in my eyes when I hear about people who put so much love into preserving the Greek tradition and culture. This mansion is gorgeous to say the least! Congratulation to the owners on their great project: restoring and refurbishing this beautiful mansion!


Dear Peri and Demetri, Thanks a million for sending me these great photos of Archontiko Papadopoulou, thus allowing me to share them with my TypePad friends. Both Alkis and I loved the food so much!! We'll certainly come back and next time we will visit the pottery studio as well. And I promise, next time I won't skip dessert!

Living away from home often makes me feel homesick. Reading your wonderful posts makes me feel like being back home virtually at the moment. I'll be back home in August for 3 weeks and I have already planned Sunday lunch at Archontiko Papadopoulou. Great post!!!


The mansion is so impressive and has been beautifully restored. I'll certainly make a reservation one of these days.

This is one of those buildings that are meant to be forever. It's so beautiful!! Peri must be very proud of herself for such a grand project. On my next visit to Cyprus end of September, I will have lunch there! You know what a naughty gourmet I am!!! :-)

Anastasia, I may not comment often but I always read your great blogs. A couple of weeks ago my sister celebrated her wedding anniversary at Archontiko Papadopoulou and invited the close family- parents and siblings. The food is really excellent!! So different from what you get at the typical Cyprus taverna - 20 dishes of meze which you are unable to finish! I remember I had chicken cooked with beetroot - delicious!!! The following Sunday, I was back there for lunch with my wife and kids. We so much appreciated the fact that in a gourmet restaurant like this, they include children's menu! Piece of advice: next time you go don't skip dessert!!! The photos are super!!! Now that it's getting warmer, we will give that back yard a try.


I love gourmet restaurants very much and this one semms to be the perfect place to enjoy a meal with your loved ones. Glad to hear you had a great day out with Alkis. Love the pictures!!


Congratulations to the owner on restoring such a fine building with so much love and care for tradition. I'd love to have a cup of tea on that balcony. Here in Australia where I've been living and working for the last3 years, there are hardly any old buildings. I love old things and tradition and this is why I often feel like going back home. I do miss London and its fine buildinggs!
