Bar review: The Secret Garden, Larnaca
With the weather slowly changing, it is now more bearable to go out for an afternoon stroll down town. After walking through Larnaca’s busy Phinikoudes we decided to sit for a drink but wanted some peace and quiet, not to be sat in one of the packed out cafés along the sea front.
Walking away from Phinikoudes towards St Lazarus church, my partner spotted a couple of endearing tables and chairs on the cobblestone pavement so we went to take a look. Despite a little noise from the traffic we decided to give ‘The Secret Garden’ a try.
To investigate a little further we went inside. Upon entering, the first thing to notice is all the very neatly placed drinks behind the bar and a section filled with a selection of wines, enough to put a big smile on my partner’s face! The inside area is not a very large space but there is an upstairs lounge too. Venturing upstairs to have a peek, we saw an inviting couch by a window that has a fantastic view of the church opposite. We wanted to sit outside though so went back downstairs and we were guided by the welcoming owner to the secret garden! It was exactly what we were looking for.
