We ordered the mini meze (lunchtime) for 10€. It was indeed a feast, from the starter dishes - village salad,... More

We're not talking high end dining but very well cooked authentic cuisine at very very reasonable prices. Beware, you're going to all be in one small room, entered directly off the street,the maximum capacity is probably no more than 25. It's all home cooked by the owner who somehow manages to get it all out on time and is friendly... More

We ate here a few times about 15 years ago so not sure if it's same people involved but it was one of the best places I have ever been. Great fun, great food and full of locals. Jonny who was in charge then was a star we actually met a few years before at Ascot, so spent plenty of... More

The Cuckoo's Nest is a tiny traditional Cyprus restaurant in the oldest house in Limassol, being recorded in the first census way back in 878 A.D. It is a must for anyone visiting Limassol, the food though simple is excellent and you must have a large appetite to manage all of the meze. It is worth a visit just to... More

Nice quaint interior, ordered food but they didn't get our order right when we mentioned this the owner was rude, argued with us continuously, spoilt our evening. Will never return. Also food was cold, chicken was burnt and tasteless. We will never return.
