After a sumptuous lunch or dinner in Larnaca? Craving comfort food but still longing for dishes featuring fine local produce and healthy sides? These places reviewed by the My Cyprus Insider team should hit the spot!
1. Red Pepper
Well known for their excellent British style Sunday roast, foodies from across the island gravitate towards Red Pepper, with dishes using seasonal produce cooked to perfection by the attentive and friendly chef, Dean Simmons. On Sundays, you can kick back in a cosy contemporary atmosphere and take your pick from roast lamb, beef, or chicken/bacon, served with roast potatoes, vegetables, Yorkshire pudding and roast gravy.
Fish lovers or those after a healthier choice can opt for the roasted salmon and new potatoes. And if you’re after a little sweetness? The signature Red Pepper dessert served with vanilla ice cream is what dreams are made of.
Red Pepper also serves pasta dishes, and homemade soups, with a special ‘express lunch’ on weekdays catering to those of you who wish to dash out of the office for a business lunch. We highly recommend their crispy fish cakes and carbonara pasta!

2. Cambanella’s Steak House
Another establishment that’s well known for its Sunday carvery buffet where hungry diners tuck into roast beef, lamb, pork or turkey, Cambanella’s is also known as one of the best steakhouses in Larnaca, welcoming guests into a lovely family-owned restaurant. Regular customers also rave about their Argentinian fillet steak, while there are plenty of other dishes on the menu to enjoy including, fish, chicken, pasta and much more.
In the summer months, there’s a lovely garden to kick back in, while you enjoy your meaty indulgence under the starry night sky.

Year in and year out, Campanario lures in hungry fans who love to tuck into what is often hailed the most divine steak in Larnaca. Set within a converted old mansion, you can expect white linen on the carefully set tables and dim lighting adding to the romantic ambience, with a lovely garden area to enjoy in the warm months.
A fresh Black Angus Rib Eye now takes pride of place on the list of treats, while there’s a juicy beef burger in the mix too. That’s not to forget all the Campanario favourites – from the T-Bone to the Diane. We love the X-Rated fillet steak with fresh cream and plenty of garlic, the Madagascar Pepper Steak with green peppercorns, the rich Tournedos Rossini – a fillet with pâté and Madeira sauce – and the grilled steak with a cheddar cheese and tomato crust.
