Eat & Drink Nicosia To Elliniko Ouzomezedopoleio: gastronomic trip to another era

To Elliniko Ouzomezedopoleio: gastronomic trip to another era

Loyal regulars and locals have for years cheerfully abbreviated the name of the place to “Ellinko”. The ambience of this restaurant, friendly service, and the absolutely exciting choice of starters, salads, dips and main dishes make this place one of the most popular in Nicosia for family gatherings, corporate events and business dinners with visitors from abroad eager to taste real Greek food.

Warm and cosy in winter, cool in summer, this place will make you feel in Greece in 1960s-1970s – in a grocery shop of another era! And you will definitely fall in love with their fresh, tasty and oh, so delightfully Greek food made of the best local ingredients. Seafood, pasta, baked vegetables, meat and fish, lentils, delicious fresh salads – authentic Greek recipes with a modern twist – words cannot describe flavours, tastes and aromas. You have to book the table anytime soon and taste it yourself!

As about wine – ask the waiter for the best pairing options since it’s difficult to decide considering the extensiveness and the choices given in their wine list.
