Menu in euro and prices double as much as others in the proximity. Another tourist trap catering to people crossing the green line for a few hours. Mediocre food served and prices twice as high. It doesn't help that it is cozy

Old Mosaic back by the Bedesten which had a cool retro interior and served up some tasty (but slightly overpriced) grilled meats. Meal was pretty average and too many insects buzzing around to be able to enjoy a meal.

We were lucky to have lunch at the Old Mosaic in a day with very little tourists around. The place is beautiful and a very nice couple served us. Food was tasty and fresh. Great coffee! Very good value.

I had Cypriot meze and kebab which I found very delicious. The staff is very friendly and try their best to serve the customers' needs. There is a small garden at the back of the restaurant surrounded with trees. Highly recommended.

When the terrible heat is letting go and night is coming, you will hear old american or italian songs coming out from a house right in front of the Selimiye Mosque. Venture in, and you will not be disappointed. The owner is a very nice...More
