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.

Wonderful lunch in an historic city

We visited Kathodon based on its Trip Advisor reviews and its close proximity to the Ledra Street crossing. We were not disappointed.

We keep going at Sakis as food is always tasty, traditional Greek plates, good live Greek-music, quick service and homely atmosphere.This evening we tried Kleftico served with oven-potatos, a big tasty pork-chop with fried potatos, Greek tomato salad with onions and fetta-cheese and a big Keo Beer at the total price of 27.80 euros. They offered us small pieces of... More

Desperately looking for somewhere to take my guests, I was pleased that there was availability at this restaurant as I had heard a lot of good things about it. We were given a table inside, which was good as there was air conditioning and made the hot evening more comfortable.. It's decorated in a quirky humourous way with Greek photos,... More

Variety of foid choice the tradituonal greek way at the end of Ledra street at the symbolic check point of Ledra street. Although good service and music, certain food choices as oart of the meze or separately chosen are frozen importef from Greece and home fried...not acceptable nowadays.

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.
