Description: Ousia Lounge Cafe, a stylish Cafe Restaurant that is set in an historic building, with a contemporary finish. Ousia delivers a complete culinary experience of traditional Mediterranean cuisine, with a modern twist. It prides its success with using ingredients & products that are of quality, fresh, natural, seasonal, and handcrafted. The philosphy behind Ousia's creativity is embracing the traditions of Cyprus, whilst also acknowledging the influences from cultures that have graced its shores. Each dish and drink is carefully prepared and presented in an environment that offers total satisfaction. It is true to say that Ousia Lounge Cafe, which is situated directly opposite the great medieval castle in the heart of the old city of Limassol, embodies a sense of royalty, pride and energy.

A trendy modern, pleasant surprise in the heart of Limassol's castle area. One would assume that this classy/contemporary/stylish/elegant lounge would break the bank! On the contrary! Large portions, excellent food, brilliant presentation, in a relaxed atmosphere... Given the situation in Cyprus, my experience at Ousia, exceeded expectations, and will definitely be back again on my next visit!

Perfect location for meeting up with friends, enjoying the Castle area & watching the world go past! Interesting menu, with some very good vegetarian meal options. Big hearty portions at reasonable prices. I am already looking forward to my next visit!

We spent a long morning/early afternoon in and around St Andrews Street in Limassol. We stopped at Ousia as we liked the look from the outside - contemporary with good quality modern seating. The inside was even more appealing combining, old architecture with modern, gallery style art and ambience. The menu was very well thought through and presented - locally sourced, in season and organic and took traditional Cypriot favourites and gave them a modern interpretation. I had the lamb shank on a bed of potato purée and my wife had baked aubergine with tomato, pesto and halumi cheese. Bothe dishes were superb and when the owner (I think) came and spoke with us, he enquired whether, on looking at my shank, I would like more meat, ten minutes later another superb lamb shank emerged from the kitchen. The coffee to follow was very good after which, Constantine appeared with two complimentary liqueurs which were superb. The staff were friendly, polite and knowledgeable and was, without doubt, the best meal we have enjoyed in Cyprus thus far. Highly recommended.
