Good local cuisine, nice atmosphere and friendly owners - one brother front of house one in the kitchen. Very reasonably priced for being in the old town / tourist area.

It offered the best quality meals. Excellent at taste and appearance. The service was also great. The owner was extremely friendly and spread a positive energy. I've been there twice and if i ever get the chance to visit Cyprus again I would totally choose this place.

We accidentally found this restaurant by walking on the streets. Owner's promise "If you dont like it, you dont pay" seemed promising and we stayed for a meal. We ordered Meze, which was very delicious. Portions are quite big, so it is necessary to eat slowly. All evening restaurant owners talked with us about meals and life in Cyprus. Lovely... More

walking around Laiki Gitonia we came across the Rimi hotel and restauarant. Its location is great in the heart of the area. Sitting outdoors was good as you could people watch whilst waiting for the meal. The food and service was not so good but the location was good.

Not miss the chance to visit this traditional Cypriot restaurant in the heart of Nicosia Historic Centre at Laiki Yitonia. Tasty local plates from grandma's recipes, original from the tradition of Cyprus centuries ago. Excellent service, reasonable prices, friendly staff, everything a visitor needs to relax in a nice environment in the city centre of Nicosia.

Its been a wonderful place to dine. We visited this place one year ago and during this visit, went for dinner again. Located at nice place (downtown Nicosia) yet not in main rush area. Quite obscure place within streets. The food is very tasty, service is excellent, takes average time to serve. Would recommend to visit this place. The price... More

The service was not very slow. The food was not well prepared and without taste. Very expensive for what it was.
