“Real Cypriot food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Normally when you go for “meze” at a taverna in Cyprus, you are in for anything from 20 to 35 different dishes. “Different” being the out of order word because the dishes are not so different at the end. All tavernas have the same assortment, presented probably slightly different. Koutsonikolias has 8-10 dishes they are authentic local food and they are different, dishes you cannot find elsewhere. Most important though, they are all yummy! Service is excellent, it’s run by the family, prices are fair, and the location at least is out of the ordinary.

“Best Meze in Cyprus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

By far the best Meze in Cyprus whith versatile food according to the season. Excellent snails, asparagus, mushrooms, kleftiko and plenty more dishes with a twist. The goat ragout and sausage ragout are the best I've had. The cypriot pancake with honey at the end sends you to Cyprus 20 years ago. I've vissted the place many times the last 10 years and its consistently perfect. In the winter I always book next to the fire place and in the summer on the roof terrace.

“The Tavern which is different from other taverns...........”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

From the first time you visit Koutsonikolias Tavern you understand that you are in a place that is much different from other taverns. All dishes served are excellent and the beer is served in way it remains ice cold to the end. The tavern is operated only by the owner and his family.

Try it and you will remember me.

“Not your average mezes!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

This is mezes done the right way! Excellent bread and salad! Everything seems different than the usual mezes, and they taste excellent. I imagine that in the summer it would be great in the yard. I surely recommend that you try it
