the food keeps coming

small and cosy place in the walled city of nicosia. They bring too enormous amount of food; good quality mezes. Good service as I remember. The place gets very crowded but worth a visit. Good example of greek cypriot cuisine

Very good quality and (even more so) quantity of traditional Cypriot specialities in a nice atmosphere and a professional / pleasant service. The wine selection and quality were also very good. However, it was not possible to have any other alternative than the meze. While, on the one hand it sounds nice to hear the waiters telling you "Please select... More

Awesome typical Meze. Very delicious but way too much. :-D We will definitely be there during our next visit again.

Old fashioned taverna - with traditional Cypriot dishes. Too many dishes with clashing tastes, as is the tradition in these kind of places. Not cheap either. Wine list OK (nothing special but again one doesn't expect it to be).

Great taverna for a traditional meze, the spanakorizo and the liver were amazing. Really bustling, they have smoking and non-smoking areas, but basically it's smokey inside. Only downside is that they tend to serve a bit too fast.

If you like authentic Cypriot food then this is the place, it's Meze or Meze as that is all they serve, BUT it's fab! Don't eat all day before you go and you might make it to the end of the meal, but I doubt it. Superb.

After years I went to Zanettos again and liked the old fashioned interior style much. It was Meze for dinner. I love Meze because one cannot really have it in my homecountry Austria. The pity is that so much is usually left over because already the starters are so delicious that one will not wait Until main-dish, as vegetarian I... More

Great food (both in terms of quality and quantity) at reasonable process. Excellent service, very attentive and friendly waitresses. The atmosphere is good provided that you are in a tavern. Highly recommended!

We went twice and it was an excellent fish restaurant. Great value for money too - you wouldn't get a fifth of the quality and quantity for the price where I live.

Simply one of the best Cypriot tavern in the heart of the old town! A variety of well cooked dishes and one of the best thing are the delicious deserts to end this excellent experience there. You pay something more but it worth. A must go visit without a doubt.
