Maybe the best cyprus meze !

Great (traditional) atmosphere, great service, and most of all: great food! The food was delicious. Taste, quality and quantity of first grade. Waiters efficient, gentle and smiling (even under pressure). It's been a long time since the last time I got enthusiast with a place offering cyprus... read more

Here you can enjoy traditional cypriot meze dishes, including grilled halloumi, grilled traditional cypriot sausage, grilled mushroom, grilled lountza meat pre-cooked in red wine, chicken souvlaki, pork souvlaki, delicious sieftalia and some other cooked dishes, such as snails. The desserts are so yummy, including the traditional "halvas katsarolas with cinnamon", "lebanese mahalepi" and "glika koutaliou". The service is pretty good... More

I ate here with a group of colleagues from about 8 countries. Everyone was completely blown away by the fantastic food and atmosphere here. A truly amazing experience, meze after meze after meze. Make sure you don't eat too much at the start...there's a lot to follow!

Visited a number of times throughout the years its been open and I think it gets better every time. If you are a local but especially if you are a tourist and want to try Cypriot cuisine make sure to stop by for a 'meze' (However make sure you come with an empty stomach!!!)

Revisiting Zanettos after quite some time, I can confirm that it is the no.1 taverna in Nicosia as far as quality, quantity and variety of the mezzedes are concerned. True original cyprus dishes without being "tampered". Excellent quick and very friendly service. Very popular with locals daily, located within the old part of Nicosia in an area and premises with...

As far as I can tell, there's only one thing on Zanetto's menu - meze. It's certainly all I was offered, and I don't know if there's a vegetarian option. For variety of flavours and textures, this was the best. I especially liked the lightly battered zucchini. My only complaint is that there was SO much food I couldn't get... More

Was invited for dinner here - and although my host apoogized for serving "only" 44 mezedes instead of the traditional 53(!!), I left the restaurant exceptionally full and hoping to return some other time! I will not claim to remember even half the dishes - but apart from the liver (which had nothing to do with the quality of it),... More

Had a great atmospheric evening at Zanettos. The meze is the standard (and only!) item on the menu, a 21-dish meal with great Mediterranean and Greek flavours. The portions are big though, so come with hunger
