People in Cyprus are very passionate and serious about their food. Restaurants are present in almost every corner to satisfy every taste and wallet, from traditional Cyprus meze tavernas to gastronomic five star spots.
Just a small tip: do not leave the island without tasting the Cypriot meze. Cypriots tend to eat late especially during the summer and it is not uncommon to make restaurant bookings from 9pm onwards. In many tourist areas however, many places start to get busy much earlier.
On warm evenings, it is lovely to stroll along the Phinikoudes promenade in Larnaca towards the Old Fort where a real culinary treat lies in store at Maqam Al Sultan... Lebanese cuisine ‘fit for a king’...
Down a narrow street, just a short distance from the beautiful church of Ayios Lazarus in the old part of Larnaca stands a traditional looking house that has been converted into an increasingly popular place to enjoy a leisurely meal with friends... the traditional way!
