Located in the 'Old Town of Nicosia, this restaurant and' the best ever for the Lebanese cuisine! Caressed by the scent of nargile, and the friendliness of the waiters, offers a variety 'of dishes very delicate and refined, to report the excellent red wine of course Lebanese, a small piece of Beirut in Nicosia!!

“Excellent Lebanese cuisine”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

A very traditional and authentic Lebanese restaurant; situated in the heart of the old Nicosia City. We thought at the beginning that the service was slow starting, but we were happy that this was the case as we started to receive gradually a nice flow of excellent very fresh and delicious food in sizeable portions. We certainly enjoyed it, and will certainly visit it again and again.

“Best Lebanese food in Nicosia”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

Restaurant is a bit hard to find, but well worth it when you do. You must walk to it as there is only foot traffic available. Meze is great, if you want great Lebanese food this is the place to go in Nicosia.

“A great place to eat Lebanese.”
Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

We went based on the good reviews and because we enjoy Lebanese food. It exceeded our hopes. The food was really good - everything was really fresh. They have a very wide range of hot and cold starter plus the usual selection of mains. In the end we decided to go with the full Meze for 2 people. It was huge - 10 dishes plus more hot pitta bread bread than we could eat. Every dish was really good so we nearly finished it all. We had a bottle of local red wine which was also very enjoyable.

It is in a nice area of the old city (just north of the Town Hall).

Very highly recommended.

“Best Lebanese food in Nicosia”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

I tend to go to Fanous lebanese restaurant, located in the heart of old Nicosia, often and I can honestly say that it serves the best Lebanese food in town. The variety and quality of the food is excellent and I always leave the place ready to explode, having eaten too much. They have a wide array of mezes and main courses, plus dessert, and I recommend that you try as many dishes as possible. The restaurant is not easy to find, situated in the maze of streets in Laiki Ghitonia, but it is very close to Ledra and Onassaghorou street. It takes a minute to walk from the Town Hall of Nicosia. Once you find it, you will go again and again. One can sit outside on the pedestrian side street and smoke his nargile and enjoy the food, or sit inside in the privacy of the restaurant. In any case, you will be thrilled with the food. Well done Fanous. Keep it up.
