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.

Its a family favorite for years and they never let you down. Try the meatballs, the pork chops. Most dishes are great and tasty. They are also fresh and light. Only problem is their chicken souvlaki it always felt dry. If you go on weekends you get live solo singer who also sings quite loudly some nights. but book in... More

Great place for lunch and dinner. Sunday brunch too. Greek food, tasty and tasteful. Friendly and efficient service. Reserve a table well in advance as the restaurant is almost always full.

We went there for lunch on Sunday. The place was packed, which is almost always a good sign. The portions were huge and cheap and the service was good, even though our waiter did not speak much English. The menu says that they "don't serve impatient and nervous people," but nonetheless the food arrived pretty fast. I really loved their... More

Lovely casual Greek restaurant with decent Greek food. Worth a visit if you are walking around the old town.

We have visited Kathodon last month after a couple of years of absence. We liked the service, food was tasty ( much better than our last visit). try the tenderloin steak with the fresh salads with it.

We live in Cyprus nd visit Nicosia often. Had a pint n half here and was €8! Very expensive. When I asked why they said "It's our tourist rates". Not impressed and wouldn't go back. Use the small bar opposite for a fair price.

Tried this restaurant twice after looking for typical food in the center of Nicosia. The single plates were huge and very tasty (we tried oven baked sea bream and kleftiko). The next time we tried the meat mezze and it was amazing with so many tasty dishes that we ate far too much. Pricewise it was quite cheap for the... More

A great place to enjoy Cyprus food and people! The place is right next to the green line in the old city of Nicosia. The service is just wonderful and the food is very autentic and yummy! If you ever find yourself in Nicosia I highly recommend you visit that place and try the kanaluni!
