    Cosy Corner is the place to be
    What a beautiful island which is sadly attracting inaccurate news from the media.

    Alykanas features the best restaurant on the island, Cosy Corner, run by Jules and her husband Shortie you can get good old fashioned English food along with Greek dishes and their speciality dishes are amazing! Everything is cooked fresh when you order, even the cakes and desserts are made by Jules' own fair hands. Once we discovered this quaint garden restaurant hidden away from the hustle and bustle, we never went anywhere else! Pop down to Scandals bar also once a week Shortie's band,

    Two Short are not to be missed and you will receive a warm welcome from Sue & Nick, I shall be returning despite the media's attempts to destroy this beautiful Country, you will not receive a warmer welcome anywhere in the world!
