When we arrived to Cyprus, we stayed at the hotel above the restaurant, which is cheap, basic, but very nice and clean.
The Lebanese restaurant on the first floor is probably one of the best in Cyprus. The authentic cuisine is exceptional and they also offer hookah. An amazing place for a relaxing afternoon coffee and dinner (there are tables outside, which I recommend). Located in downtown Nicosia, on a lovely cobbled street, surrounded by souvenir shops.

Love this lebanese place. You could enjoy your nargile and very good fresh food. Plus the people who work there are very pleasant, especially Ahmed the "nargile" guy!

This place is lovely, with a lot of character. The food was good, the waiting staff were friendly and helpful and the price was reasonable. Food service was a little slow but it wasn't a big problem

The restaurant is in Laiki Yitonia in the beautiful old town of Nicosia. We usually get the Lebanese meze which is amazing. The portions are generous and the pricing is reasonable. The price for narghile could have been a bit more reasonable though. The owner and the staff are very helpful and with a smile on their faces!

situated in laiki yitonia between buildings and a small walking road
it seemed as a nice choice - but the waiter proved my wrong

spoke little greek and had no manners- i asked for a non smoking area but everywhere there were people smoking - even in the inside of the reataurnat - the waiter told me that this is the situation

food was very average - and was very very slow service and kitchen - i had to wait for 30 minutes for the salad to come
