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.

Authentic Greek tavern-style experience

We had live Greek music at that evening. Home style cooked Greek food. Happy and noisy ambiance. Lots of Zivania shots. Spontaneous dancing guests. Informal service. Happy happy.

The meze dishes were insufficient compared to the price. The drinks were also overpriced and the service was poor!

We stopped here for lunch after driving to Nicosia from Paphos. We picked it purely because the food being eaten outside looked good and from what we could tell, it was packed with local Cypriots! It was a really good lunch that we had with authentic Cypriot food, good quality and value considering the location - right infant of the... More

Visited place after the recommendation of some friends one Sunday early afternoon. Place is too crowd and tables are very closed each other thus you feel that you are sitting together with the table next to you. There is a huge menu and you can choice from a big variety of meat, fish or veggie dishes most of them cooked... More

Regular visitors to this traditional Greek restaurant which is always busy. Wide selection of Greek tasty dishes. Had lunch there with friends. It was very pleasant to listen to a singer playing old Greek songs on the guitar. Always happy to go back.

We had a very nice meal in Kathadon- we were especially happy as they had a nice choice of non-grilled traditional Greek home-style dishes. Very good location, in Ledra street, close to the crossing point.

Ordered meze but quantity was very small for the price. 2 persons paid €37 for 2 meze and 1 beer but no value for money. Almost no actual meat in dishes. ie tiny slice of sausage each, small pork filet, meat skewer. Pretty much this. Service was good, although cold to sit outside. Couldn't take off our jackets. Too much... More

This restaurant provides a large variety of good Greek food, as opposed to Cypriot, although some dishes can arguably be similar. As a family gathering we ordered maze which arrived quickly and regularly. These included, feta in pastry fried, potato balls, mixed range of dips, variety of meat on skewers such as pork, lamb.........overall the quality was excellent as indicative... More

I visited last month for a friends Birthday. I have to say the food and service are excellent. You should try their souvlaki, loukaniko and souvla and there are also many more exceptionally made dishes. Order them as a meze.

I tried their meze and i was very disappointed considering comments I heard from other people. Its a weird mix of Greek and Cypriot kitchen also the flow of dishes was slow. The live music that was on was very nice though
