Unique restaurant located near the historic Orthodox Church of Panagias Euangelistrias close to the mainly long path of Pallouriotissas. The menu is well known for its traditional Cypriot cuisine and the authentic regional courses inspired from the purity and the freshness of a daily food markets.

Just the two of us

We went midweek, mid August. Nobody there except us.

Collected food ordered over the phone. Ready on time and was very good quality for seven of us. Staff very pleasant but not a great looking venue for eating in.

Last December just before christmas I had an interesting experience at Louis Tavern. A powercut to the whole neighbourhood meant that we had to eat our meal in the light of candles and a fireplace. Despite not having power the restaurant still delivered a fantastic meal that unlike your average meze place delivered quality and quantity rather than just extreme... More

Louis Taverna serves an amazing traditional Cyprus style meze, and the quality of the food is excellent. Great value for 18 euros each. Louis and the serving staff in the restaurant were lovely and the atmosphere with the fire and greek music is amazing. I will definitely be visiting again with family and friends.
