Aigeon

I really liked the renovated Aigeon. The space is cute and cozy, the service is impeccable and the menu is interesting with dishes that are excellent both in presentation and in taste. However, I found the wine list especially expensive, with a few options of only Cypriot wines, the least expensive costing €26!

In general, the philosophy of its menu is sharing, thus their portions are big. The green salad was very good and fresh. I loved the rolled pita with lamb. Also excellent were the chicken ribs. The handmade pasta with anari cheese, pepper and chicken were tasty, so were the stuffed cabbage rolls. Do not miss out on the fried poulles!

Their desserts portions were huge and the kataifi and orange pie we ordered were impressive and very tasty.

Ektoros 40, Nicosia, 22253030. Tuesday-Saturday 19:00-23:00, Sunday 12:00-15:00
