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.

This restaurant is situated within the old town of Nicosia, at the end of the shopping street called Ledra. Despite the fact that we did not reserve and the place was full, the staff managed to find a table for us (6 friends). We ordered various Greek dishes, including souvlaki and they were all greatly cooked and tasted fine. The... More

The old city of Nicosia, unlike much of the rest of the city, is undergoing a revival with trendy new shops and restaurants opening frequently. This is quite a change from when I visited Nicosia eighteen months ago. Friends took me to Kathodon, a very lively restaurant located in the old city on a pedestrian only street. Owned by two...

Unique atmosphere, live greek classics music. Bit noisy and very busy Sunday lunch. Efficient albeit hasty service. Huge selection of Greek and Cypriot dishes. Starters very good, mains (meats) a disappointment. Would like to give it another shot on a less busy day.

I had dinner in Kathodon. Because of the nice weather, I could sit outside. A guitarist played life music. Great food, warm welcome. Professional waiters.

We only had a short time in Nicosia, which was a real shame as we really enjoyed our lunch here and would have liked to linger longer over lunch - it is in a good spot for people watching. The service was quick, didn't have to wait long for menu, drinks or food and the waiter was friendly. The food... More

This was one of the first places we eaten in this country. And then we thought it was pretty cool, the 2 portions of meze was way too much for 3 girls. But right now I am not so sure if i will come back, despite the fact the place was clean and staff was relly good.

I had an awesome lamb lunch at Kathodon! Every bite of the lamb and potatoes was just so very tasty ... I've never had lamb so good. I liked the resaurant not only for the food but for it's location on the "border" with the Turkish-controled part of Nicosia ... I could watch the comings and goings. If you go... More
