This lovely restaurant was recommending by our Segway Tour Guide, as we stipulated that we wanted traditional Cypriot food, not tourist restaurant. Oh boy did this place deliver. There is no menu as they only serve Meze. The Staff are just lovely, making you feel so welcome. The food was just amazing, dish after delicious dish just kept coming. It... More

Friendly staff, good quality food and endless quantities. One of its major advantages is that it is open till late when most of the other restaurants are closed. Very popular among VIPs. If you are in the old city it worths a try. When you are there try "mezedes"... But better be very hungry

21 eur per person for meze is quite expensive!!! But the food is great and enough. Personally i love sails and the chicken kebab.

A Nicosia institution for several decades we went on the basis of a not altogether trusted guidebook review. There is no menu, you just get dish after dish of every meze variation you can think of. It gets crowded later but is not impossible to get in at all. The trick is to pace yourself; just when you think you're... More

Our attitude in Cyprus is that when we establish our name we forget about those who helped us. This is what you convey when you impose your clients what they have to order, and we are not talking about a minimum of two meze which is common in many restaurants in Cyprus. I gave you the opportunity, because it was... More

It is a fixed menu and the food just keeps coming and coming. Service was excellent. we chose a local rose wine and it was good. We tend to eat early, like 1930, so there was only one other couple there at first. The place filled up after about 2030. The wait staff really were running, but service still was... More
