Description: Award Winning Chef Nicholas Figel introduces destination quality International Cuisine to Highlands, NC. In the Cyprus open kitchen, we take our inspiration from peasant foods and traditional cuisines from around the world. We hand harvest our vegetables and shop the ethnic markets to deliver authentic and traditional International flavors. We feature a unique regional menu, written and executed each day in the Cyprus kitchen, always by hand, and always using time honored, traditional cooking methods. The dining room is relaxing, inclusive, and a great place to enjoy great food and good times with friends. Cyprus International Cuisine, The most exciting dining destination in Highlands

Very interesting concepts behind this eccentric restaurant. Nice atmosphere and wonderful food. The service was outstanding. We are new in the area, and we will return.

I love the concept behind this place. Rotating the menu with different themes every month is really interesting. Food and service was great! Portion size pleased my husband and I took enough home for another meal. Absolutely do not miss the lavender ice cream cookie. Quite possibly the best dessert I have ever had!

Ate here the two nights we were in the area--it is that good. Very interesting international dishes full of imaginative flavors. Atmosphere and staff are excellent. My favorites were the caramelized shrimp appetizer and the mango cardamom chicken. The bread with garlicky olive oil was irresistable, too.

If you're wanting to impress some guests with excellent food and atmosphere. ..go here. Not really pricey in Highlands standards. Menu changes frequently, which keeps the staff on their toes. Lots of local ingredients used....Very fresh.

As the previous reviewer said, this is definitely a great place for foodies.

International Cuisine restaurant that changes its specials daily based on the fresh ingredients they received that day from their own garden or seafood catch they received from Atlanta that day. It is an Open Kitchen and Farm Table restaurant.

We ordered a rare Marrow-Bone (rare) for an appetizer. I don't think I could ever describe it if you haven't had it. Just amazingly flavorful. Probably the best we've had.

Our meals were fantastic, and we had a chocolate raspberry martini for dessert.

The service was excellent as well. Definitely a must to eat here when in town.
