Cyprus Restaurants

  • The Cypriot Meze

    A Cypriot meze usually starts with pitta bread and delicious dips, such as Tahini (a smooth paste of sesame seeds), Tzatziki (a mixture of yogurt, cucumber and olive oil), Taramosalata (a creamy pink dip blended with fish roe, mashed potato, olive oil and lemon juice) and, a particular favourite, Houmous (chick peas, garlic and tahini). This is...

  • WOW ! It's fresh seafood!

    Situated on Pissouri beach. This restaurant offer a great menu of Cypriot dishes including mezes along with some regular tourist dishes. It is set along the beach front of this small bay and village with a few other bars and restaurants nearby. There is a lovely south facing terrace to sit on and enjoy the sea views from your table as the sun sets...

  • Amazing Restaurant!

    The smoothing atmosphere and the professionally cooked and decorated dishes give you every opportunity to enjoy your meal. I would call the dishes here masterpieces. Impressive plates and innovative taste proposals are always healthy. The choice of wine and homemade desserts are sophisticated. The food is delicious, good-looking and well prepared....

  • The Best Trout -Cosy Grounds, Amazing...

    I was visiting Platres a few weeks ago and I had both dinner the first evening and lunch with friends the next day before driving off for Larnaca. I can assure that the quality of the food here is excellent, and the service is unbeatable. The Cypriot “meze” -meaning a variety of dishes, costs 17 euro for one person but you are brought more than 15...

  • Authentic Cypriot/Greek cuisine, Cozy...

    I recently spent 2 days in the picturesque little village of Vouni which is nestled in the foothills of Troodos in the heart of the wine region. I came across ‘Oraia Hellas’ as I was going down the main road. I noticed the sign with the name of the restaurant. It was kind of artistic with blue and white colours and this drew my attention. I wanted...

  • Amazing Cuisine, Oasis for Sport...

    I visited Lithos Bar and Grill recently while I was in Larnaca.On a previous trip some months back it was under construction and it is fully renovated now. We came here to dine with friends.It is indeed beautiful with the new look, spacious and what impressed me were the 8 big screens on the walls. It is the dream place and paradise for sport...

  • French fine-dining taken to the new...

    La Maison Fleurie is a family-run place if there ever was one: Giannis, the owner, also dubs as a head-waiter and a sommelier, his father is the Restaurant Chef while the mother takes credit for delicious hand-made chocolates and cakes at the Patisserie next door. Perfect mix of French class & Cypriot hospitality!The interior design is based on a...


    TEA FOR TWO is aimed at the British tourist trade. There are three TEA FOR TWO Restaurants in Paphos. One on Tombs of the Kings Road, one in the Old Town and one in the harbour area. The Mousakka is good, the Spag Bol is good. The portions are BIG!

  • An Elegant Atmosphere, a Gem in Larnaca

    I would love to come at the Yu Shan Chinese Restaurant again and again.I believe it is a gem in the city of Larnaca and it is found opposite the old Stadium.It opens daily and during the weekends for lunch starting at 13:00 to 15:00.For dinner it is open at 18:00 to 23:00 with a rich variety of different kinds of Chinese dishes. You will find a...

  • Avoid this Restaurant Completely!

    While in Lefkara I decided to have some Cypriot Kebabs so I asked to be shown where to go for the best kebab and sheftalia in the village.I was urged to come to this restaurant and I was completely disappointed by the ignorance of the owner. I was brought burnt sheftalia on the outside and inside the meat was still red. It was not possible to eat...

  • Cypriot Cuisine!

    I have come to this restaurant several times in the past.The last time was 3 years back.At the beginning the owner used to serve the customers himself and he tried his best to give the best impression.Now this does not exist any more!!This time I am here I want to check if there is still interest in the customers.He does not show up at all. Instead...

  • Hospitality at it's best

    Hidden away up a cobbled street suddenly you find this lovely welcoming restaurant with open air terrace and inside a huge log fire.The owner Marinos Panayioutou and his family were incredibly welcoming and offered us the best meal in the entire time we were in Cyprus. The meze was amazing!!It is well worth the trip into the mountains to vist...

  • Polynesian cuisine

    We were made to feel special here,little things like pulling the chairs out for us,laying the serviettes over our laps,that sort of thing.The waiters were excellent,very knowledgeable and very curtious throughout the evening.Great spot for a bit of people watching, as they bimble down towards Nissi Avenue.Its on a first floor,and I dont know if...

  • fish restaurant central

    So finding a fish restaurant in Cyprus is about as easy as hitting water when you fall out of a boat. The question is which fish restaurant? There I follow the locals. Cypriots usually go out on Sunday afternoon for big family meals, which last up to 3-4 hours. Where do they go? Many of them drive to the town of Zygi, which is located halfway...

  • Cypriot Authentic Cuisine

    “The Village Restaurant” in Platres is a very nice restaurant.I was amazed with the delicious cuisine of Agi and he was telling me that he is cooking everything by himself. Nobody else helps in the kitchen. He is very passionate with his cooking which he learned from his Mother he said.One can find mostly Traditional Cypriot cuisine here and from...

    We had lunch at “Maria’s Restaurant in Vavatsinia in February, and I was surprised with the huge portions. None of us could eat the whole dish and we asked Maria to pack the rest for home.Wonderful surroundings out in the nature with lush vegetation and singing of birds all over. If it would have been summer it would be a paradise!The restaurant...

  • Rude Manners!

    I was brought to this Tavern and Bar Restaurant in the village of Agros by a friend of mine. We came here from a nearby village since all the other taverns were closed.The interior décor of the café-restaurant is nice and cozy, a pleasant atmosphere with a big selection of wines on one of the walls just behind where we were sitting. The TV set was...

  • Ask for an itemized receipt here!

    I had dinner out with a friend of mine at this Tavern in February.It is a stone-built structure, with a traditional look, very cozy inside,Traditional on the outside. I have always wanted to dine here because it is opposite some friends’ house. This was a chance to see if it is what it shows on the outside!!The service was excellent, and the staff...

  • “Excellent Service and Fresh Fish"

    I highly recommend this fish tavern for the excellent service, and good quality of anything. The owner of the tavern is an open-hearted lady who was coming every now and then to ask if the food is tasty. This means that she cares for her customers. The price was normal. We had both fried and grilled fish, squid, and octopus marinated in red wine –...

  • The Grilled Trout here.....

    If you are at the AgroHotel of Ambelikos in Potamitissa, try the grilled fresh trout.Red and white bottled wine is available here from the round region.Ask the owner Mr. Akis and he will give you other alternatives if you are not fond of trout or kalamari. Prices are reasonable and the environment outstanding.

  • Classy

    This is the peak point of Cyprus cuisine in our trip. We almost tasted every single special mezes on their menu. Some were beyond our imagination; some were beyond our taste limits.It was a beautiful night. Our Cypriot friend was expecting her childhood friends to meet us there. So it turned into a girls’ night. We ate, we drank, we talked, we...

  • Eating Habits in Cyprus!

    Cypriots know well how to enjoy life, and this is reflected in their eating habits!There is a variety of restaurants, taverns, cafeterias and bars throughout the island. They can enjoy an exotic International dish or a traditional Cypriot kebab. It’s all at arms reach and offering real value. Highly recommended is Cyprus Meze in a traditional...

  • Cakes and pastries

    It is a franchised brand, I think. We shopped from several different Dano’s. It’s like a patisserie plus market. We shopped for pastries, generally. They were for our quick breakfasts on the road but they are delicious. Also we bought some Con Coffee as a gift to our families here. Salty pastries for breakfast except the ones with mint

  • Patisserie

    This is an old establishment; it’s been founded in 1935. We had our first breakfast here, because our friend recommended. It was a beautiful day, so we sat outside under the bright sun and had some grilled halloumi cheese, eggs etc. It was a nice place and it is adjacent to the Kyrenia port and castle.

  • Breakfast

    We stayed at the summer house of a friend near Kyrenia. So we had our breakfasts in different places, usually on the road with some local pastries. This was our second “proper” breakfast. I use this word, “proper”, just to explain the situation because I do not prefer one to another. Yet eating Cyprus’ halloumi at the breakfast is bliss.We came to...

  • Nothing special

    This was an ordinary café/diner in Nicosia. We decided to eat our first dinner here, after trying to find Hamur. We had some chicken dishes and salads and shared those. Customers are generally youngsters and the menu is eclectic.

  • I still miss the kebab

    In Kyrenia, behind the old Dome Hotel, there is this famous restaurant. We dined here one night. The idea was having some salad, appetizers, grilled meat and wine. Since the famous kebab of Cyprus is “seftali kebabi”, we tried it, especially. Actually seftali means peach in Turkish, but I didn’t know that this kebab had nothing to do with peach at...

  • Dough!

    We landed in Ercan Airport, find our rental car and headed to Nicosia. Our first target was Hamur, a local restaurant mainly serves pastry. Hamur means dough. That night we were late, the place was closed. So we tried there again a few days later.We ate some fried “borek” and “manti”, dumplings with yogurt sauce. Not my favorite type of meal, but...

  • The classical

    We couldn’t return home without tasting some fish in Cyprus. After all, we were on an island. So, we decided to visit Altinkaya near the “Cikartma Plaji”. This is the place where our friend's family used to eat fish when the live in Cyprus.I love the fishes of Marmara, Aegean and Black Sea but am not very familiar to Mediterranean fishes and many...

  • Don't go here with noisy children!

    Cuisines: English, Greek, International, MediterraneanIt is in a quiet location, and a popular restaurant.It is a spot for romantic couples. All the dishes we had were mere ok, but dessert was just a small portion. Meat was tender and full of taste. I think it is a bit over priced though!

Very trendy and the staff were friendly and polite and...

Haloumi(goat's) cheese which is nice and chewy - perfect when its grilled or baked and...
