Try the full mezze. Its incredible. You will taste greek dishes in a value price at a friendly atmosphere with live music. Good value for money. Better make a reservation as place gets very busy. Love it!

I've been here a few times trying to justify is popularity. No clue found. In Greece this would be an average of even bad restaurant. Small portions, over priced, and mediocre flavors. Sure if you haven't tried Greek food before..

The food was good and the stay very welcoming but the plates were too small compared to the prices. The place looks traditional with Greek music and the atmosphere helps you feel the Greek culture but in a more "touristy" way. The location of the restaurant is next to the borders and that makes it more interesting.

We regularly visit - food is always excellent - the owner is super fun and always accommodates our needs. Ideally book before going as its a busy place. They always offer free homemade dessert, another plus!

Nice warm interesting looking decor. Large place so good for groups or families rather than an intimate romantic place for couples. Speciality Greek mezedes as in Greece. Interesting menu. In the end however, not so 'friendly' for a solo foreigner in wintertime! I had an ok large portion of tzatzki and horiatiki which arrived with an economical 4 black olives... More

A good place to try traditional food. I went several times with my family and friends. The mezze is a good choice, a big variety, good service and prices. Also there is live music!

This restaurant is right next to the border crossing on he southern side. Food is superb and so is the service. Dine any time. Recommend the meatballs and chicken kebab.

Slow and inattentive service. I ordered a chicken souvlaki and was brought a pork souvlaki, which was slightly burnt and difficult to chew, the fries were tasteless and melted on the plate. The decoration is overwhelming (too much going on on the walls - photos and writing) and the live music is anything but professional and deafening. It doesn't make... More

the place is right next to Lidra check point with thousands of people passing by. It looks like a food factory. Average food ,bud service Silly sayings and phrases written on the walls. There are a lot better places for lunch or dinner near by.

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.
