More and more of us now, have adopted these ways of eating, either because of ideology or because we care for our body and our health. Below is a list of the best healthy and vegetarian restaurants of Cyprus:

Get Fresh

Get Fresh, whose menu is often refreshed, offers a fairly wide selection of vegetarian dishes. It is worth noting that every Monday, it does not serve meat.
