Eating in Lake Ronkon
There are plenty of excellent restaurants in the area to whet your whistle. Mesoyios Greek-Cypriot Restaurant is one of the most highly rated restaurants, with diners recommending the Spanakopita and the seafood. Also rated high is Phayathai Restaurant, which serves authentic Thai food and provides that same authentic Thai dinner service to go with it.
