So I repeat my question, where does one register?
I think it's a new law that will require implementation and several Cyprus shrugs till the rules become clear, but I'm sure that, as with all CY officialdom, it will be a simple process! :roll:

Re: New:: Fish & chip restaurant in Tala square

Awful website - hope their service is quicker! :lol:

I'm fairly sure it was formerly called The Square Bistro
