Louis Taverna is a quiet, off center restaurant, which serves the best meze dishes in Nicosia. Each dish is well cooked and tasty. The serving pace is just right, providing adequate time to enjoy the food. The owner (who is also chef and waiter) is a very polite and friendly person. A must visit restaurant for everyone who wants to... More

Food was delicious. Owner was so friendly. Lovely spot. I had the lamb chops, which were scrumptious. Had a candied orange peel as a desert that was to die for. Only wish they had wifi.

Visited on a rather slow weekday. The food was delivered in a nice slow pace, giving the guests time to eat, talk, socialize. The quality was very good, with a nice selection of all which one would expect from in a typical Cyprus meze. A nice addition the usual suspects was the cooked artichokes and cooked mushrooms (cooked in wine... More

A group of friends visiting a number of taverns in Nicosia, trying to find the best one to make it our meeting place. After visiting more than a dozen of taverns it was very clear to us that Louis is by far one of the best taverns if not the best in Nicosia. Keeping the traditional Cyprus meze culture alive...

In all fairness to this establishment, I have to start this review by stating that I HATE CYPRUS MEZE food and this is a place that only serves that. Why did I go? I was invited there. Why do I write this review? To "protect" my fellow human beings who are not familiar with this type of food. The definition... More

Being a local and tried pretty much every tavern in Nicosia I must say that Louis Tavern is one of my top choices! Great food (Souvlaki, Sheftalia, lamb chops) and also great atmosphere, specially if u visit during the winter time and seat by the fireplace. A must visit place when in Nicosia.

The food is good and there's a nice variety of meat and side dishes. The downside is that the price of 18 Euros for meze is quite expensive and not at all justified, taking in mind that the dishes served were pretty much standard found in most taverns on the island with less than 15Euros. In general, a bit overrated... More

We were invited by family to experience good old fashioned Cypriot cooking and hospitality. It seems that Cypriots eat a lot as our plates were very full!! AND really very good indeed! We just ate souvlaki but it was more than filling and very fresh meat.

Dear reviewer we appreciate for posting a comment about Louis tavern on trip advisor. Next time don’t forget to try our meze which will make you feel more typical Cypriot. Meze is not always about the quantity, you do get these lovely small bites of fresh food but at the same time you can spend quality time and socialize with... More

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. With the quality of service, the smooth sound of music and the fireplace, we have created a comfy and peaceful atmosphere for those who want to experience the truthfulness and those who want to escape from the routine.
