Called into Kathodon by off chance, and was pleasantly surprised with staff, choice of menu, often the house wine is nothing more than dish water, but pleased to say, most enjoyable. Traditional proper Cyprus/Greek food without all the batter that so often is coated with.

Simple and traditional Greek dishes done very well. The house wine and dish of the day were good value and delicious. The owner visited tables to ensure all was okay and only negative was The time it took the waiter to acknowledge us. Good food that met our expectations.

I'd give this place 6 stars for service happily. The waiters were efficient and uber friendly and even the owner/manager came out to say hello too. There is live greek music which somehow is not distracting but is part of the Greekness of the place. Close your eyes, you'd think you where on a beach (and not next to the... More

Very authentic with traditional Greek music. Was a real pleasure to eat to such tradition and with such a setting. Right on the divided line that splits the city, it make it more special as it shows its sadness and happiness. Worth a visit for it's style to.

The food is very delicious but as i have described it in the title is 'expensive'. What i mean by saying expensive : you order 'mezedes' for 2 people and you get 1 slice each food portion if not half slice each! If their portions were a bit larger i would not describe it as 'expensive'. However, it also has... More

The food was very good. Because there were too many tables very close to one another it was very difficult to sit comfortably. The service was slow. They could not manage the orders properly. Its best to choose a day during the week instead of weekends.

The warm welcome of stuff was the first good impression. They made us feel like visiting their own home! Interior design is genuine Greek style and greek humour is printed on every wall! FOOD IS GREEK! AND PERFECT! WE LOVED IT! And great value for money! We definitely go again and we strongly recommend this restaurant!

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.
