Join Olia Hercules for an evening of spectacular fire-cooked food and good company in a beautiful, relaxed setting.
Olia’s menu celebrates the best of her heritage and lifelong love of Eastern European flavours and techniques, all with a unique Glen Dye twist.
Olia was born in the south of Ukraine and at the age of 12 moved to Cyprus.
