Description: With my arrival in the beautiful Island Cyprus many years ago, I carried with me a dream, to create an authentic and traditional Greek tavern that would focus on the flavours of ingloriously lost homeland of Asia Minor. I started out in difficult years surrounded with dark and desolation affected by the visible effects of the invasion and occupation! Slowly and with much love and hard work my tavern had began to acquire life and took strength from the preference and confidence you had in us. I came up with the name of the tavern after much thought. The idea of a 'commercial' name didn’t inspire me at all so I decided to call it “Kathodon” which means “En Route”. “En Route” to the way of freedom. Kathodon survived, strengthened and progressed throughout the years and is now here after 13 years stronger, filled with love, commitment to tradition and quality that was always our aim. We continue always with respect to our customer-friend! I would like to point out where it says somewhere in our menu, “We do not serve hasty and nervous people”. This means that food is prepared fresh once you have ordered and some extra time may be required. We are sure there is no restaurant in the world that does not sometimes make a mistake and if this happens to us we will make sure that we will do everything in our power to make it up to you in the best possible way. Our promise for the future is to continue enriching our menu with forgotten traditional flavours that will take you on a journey leaving a sweet taste lingering in your mouth.. These are a few words about the history of “Kathodon”, we wish you all “bon appetite” and may you all have a pleasant time.

a typical friendly Mediterranean atmosphere in the middle of Nicosia. The decor of the restaurant sets the scene, the people who run the place are just lovely, friendly and so helpful. There was live Greek music when we were there. We asked for meze... and the food kept coming and coming and coming - until we told them to stop... More

Just a few metres from the Turkish border in the heart of Nicosia is the best traditional Greek restaurant I have ever visited. Kathodon was recommended to us by Ahmed, who works at the nearby Centrum Hotel, and it was the perfect suggestion for my wife and I. Right after we grabbed our seats, we were greeted by our waiter...

Visited our first night in Cyprus after being away for over 5 years. It was an adequate meal but by no means overwhelming. Service was excellent, portions of meze for 2 were just fine, pricing was fair enough. The downside for us was the quality of meat served - all cuts seemed quite tough - from the pork souvlaki, the... More

Have eaten here several times and the quality is always great. The staff are okay but a few don't speak great English. Of course this isn't expected but it's worth noting if you wouldn't be comfortable with this. I disagree that the food is overpriced - the portions are very reasonable and compared to most Nicosia restaurants, it is cheaper.... More

this place is full of atmosphere and great food. the owner has taken a lot of tender loving care over the décor and the food is Greek/Anatolian in flavour. mouthwatering dishes kept arriving on our table, a feast for the eyes and stomach. the grilled pork chop was the tenderest I have ever tasted. There is only one musician playing... More
