Food and wine

Cyprus, being situated at the crossroad of three continents; Southern European, MIddle Eastern and Central Asian offers a cuisine influenced by this heady mix. Local taverns are eagerly waiting to welcome you, to share their local dishes based on traditional family recipes tried and tested over many years! For a true Cyprus dining experience, try a meze! A Meze meal consists of small plates of upto 30 dishes made up of small plates of tasty dips, savoury treats, vegetables, fish and meat dishes. And it would be a shame not to visit at least one of the forty one wineries on the island!
