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.

We were warmly welcomed by all staff that served us especially Jiorgo. He recommended the excellent fish mezze and ouzo to drink with it. Unfortunately we could not finish it due to so much food being given to us!! Restaurant full with locals which is always a good sign.

It's always a good sign when a taverna is busy with locals. We just managed to get a table at 1030 on a Saturday night. The maître d' or owner (we weren't sure which) was very friendly and happy to talk us through the menu. It's also a good sign when you are discouraged from over-ordering; I always feel more... More

After a beautiful wedding 15 minutes away, my wedding party and I arrived to a warm and congratulatory reception at Kathadon! Nothing was too much trouble and the staff were attentive, jovial and accommodating. They even popped a 'Just Married' sign at the head of our table! The food and drink was delicious, plentiful and first class and the singer... More

My family and I had agreed to meet from both sides of the island in central Nicosia for a chat and a catch up over a meal. We walked around looking for somewhere less on the beaten track on the assumption that such an eatery might be 'better'. However we quickly learned that on a Sunday at 17:00, lots of... More

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...
