Excellent place to bring travellers or associates form abroad.

Good Cyprus meze. Not very big portions but still so much food that you can't eat it all. The service is TOP level for a traditional tavern. Good scenery as it is an old house in the old town.

Service is great and wine list was "extensive" given that it‘s a taverna. The meze, well after 23 years in Cyprus and some of the rave reviews, I was disappointed. A great selection of orektika or appetisers, salad for 2 is the same size as a salad for 4, so good value quantity wise, quality was lacking unfortunately. Booking is... More

The price for meze is the highest I've ever paid in Cyprus. The food is below average (for my taste) despite its large quantity. Also, the waiters don't seem to have the patience to correctly place the plates on the table.

If you are unfamiliar with the Cyprus meze, brace yourself! This milestone restaurant guarantees meats, salads, bbqs and stews, a mixture of most traditional dishes in great quantity but more importantly great quality. Enjoy! I always do

I could write for an hour on this place - I won't. Stop reading this review and just book a table. Don't eat breakfast or lunch if you are going here for dinner!

I visited this Tavern with my parent in March. Once you enter this establishment, there is not much to me impressed by.. It is old and not much space.. So you wait and see, because we were recommended this tavern as the best in the city.. You can only order you drinks, because the only food served is a traditional... More

Huge quantity. Qualitative Cypriot food. A must go restaurant if you will go to Nicosia! The service is very goodand the decoration of the restaurant a Cypriot retro beauty. But the building itself is old enough.

I was visiting one of my friend in Nicosia and her family brought me there for dinner the last night I was in the city. Zanettos is a tipical and very nice tabern. You don't have to order anything, just the drinks, and the meal starts coming! It's a kind of "tapas" in the greek-cypriot style. The food is greek... More

One of the loveliest tavernas in the old town of Nicosia. Has character and atmosphere. The meze is tasty and plentiful so make sure you go there real hungry. It's barbecue is always consistent and cooked real good. Indoors and outdoors options so no issue if you are a smoker
