Best Arabic food in Limassol

Definitely the best place to go for Arabic food in Limassol. In summer there is a lovely garden to dine in, in winter don't expect much from inside but it's a taverna style, not a fine dining restaurant. They have lovely mezes and if there are certain Lebanese/Syrian foods that you are craving, you... read more

Decent appetizers - amazing meat - poor ambience. Ok service. We paid 68 euro for 4 people - reasonably priced but the place desperately needs to be renovated

We decided to have a family lunch at the Syrian Arab Friendship Club restaurant based on a positive experience of the food from a few weeks before where the company I work for decided ordered food from the restaurant for the entire office staff. I cannot say that we had the same experience when we went to the restaurant for... More

Infact it was all amazing food. Since being back in the UK i have learnt how to make the chicken taouk. Woulf definitely recommend this place if you are... More

I have been going to this place for over 10 years and apart from the chicken livers and lamb dishes they have good authentic food with decent pricing. However, the furniture is old and the bathrooms are dirty like public toilet. Their other restaurants in nicosia like sawa is much nicer in that aspect.

Probably the best place to eat in Limassol. We have been using the Syrian Friendship Club for several years and are never disappointed. Try the mezze, plenty of dishes, all different and intriguing and very tasty. We love it, if you like vegetarian, you will love this place. Please try it, but book first at weekends.

Have been to the Syrian several times both for sit down and take away. Most recently was there for my birthday where we had a table of 18 people dining. My birthday was brilliant btw and everyone loved the food. Although the atmosphere inside the restaurant during the winter is lacking in charm, the food and service make up for... More

Very nice meze and good value for money. Service is not always very efficient, but who cares if the food is amazing? This restaurant is also a good option for a small bite to eat and for vegetarians as there are a lot of great meze dishes.
