The best wine bars in Cyprus

Wine is a matter of vital importance. When you want to drink wine, you deserve the best quality and service. Here is where you will find it:

Vino Cultura

One of the places-to-be of Nicosia’s nightlife. In Vino Cultura, good wine meets the romantic atmosphere and dim lighting meets gourmet flavours. The wine cellar stands out in the restaurant’s decoration. It is one of the biggest in the island, with hundreds of wines. Spanish influences are visible in the design and menu of this restaurant, which promises to delight your palate.

The place has a wine shop as the owners are wine distributors.

Il Baccaro

Oh how I love this bar? So atmospheric, so elegant and so unpretentious. Go there and try their wine, along with their platters and of course, their homemade pizza. I also recommended the highly rated chicken liver pate. If you don’t feel like eating a full meal, their special appetizers are exactly what you need to accompany your wine.

Barrique Wine & Deli

Passion for fine wine was what led three friends to open Barrique Wine Deli (barrique means barrel). A place for wine lovers that also operates as a deli in the morning and then turns into a wine bar. The cellar offers around 250 labels from all over the world, most of which they have imported themselves.

On the menu you will find 30-40 different wines to choose from, to have in a glass, while for an additional €4 you can have wine from the cellar that is not included in the set of options.

You can accompany your drink with meticulously prepared dishes made with products sold at the deli including salads with prosciutto and white grapes, bites such as bresaola rolls filled with spinach and cream cheese and various types of bruschetta. There are also cheese, cold cuts and fruit platters, which can be assembled according to your taste. In October, hot appetizers will also be added in the menu. At the deli, there is cheese for sale from countries like France, Italy and the Netherlands, and savouries mainly from Italy, but that’s not all since a great variety of products like olive oil, different flavoured salt, pâté, foie gras, balsamic vinegar, pasta and risotto are also on offer.
