Description: At Nama Restaurant, we aim to fully satisfy our customers, providing them with quality International and Traditional Cypriot cuisine, since opening its doors in 1994. We emphasize on the quality and importance of ingredients used and the way our dishes are cooked and prepared. Our menu also includes fresh seafood from the sea of Cyprus, the island of Venus. The name "Nama" comes from the same greek word which is used to describe pure fountain water and has its own special meaning.

“Excellent food, hospitality and value for money”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

We visited this family-owned restaurant on the strength of TripAdvisor reviews. The evening was wonderful, from the warm welcome of the father and son team, to the delicious selection of starters (small meze) followed by freshly cooked squid. As other reviewers have indicated, Nama doesn't look attractive from the outside, located on a bend on a busy link road. However, it is truly worth a visit or two. We plan to go back.

“Good honest food”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Went here on recommendation. The menu is traditional, local and very fresh with fish, seafood and a variety of traditional meat dishes. The local wine was good too.

“Wonderful Food, Wonderful Staff!”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

What a fabulous Restaurant Nama is!! We came here on our first night, we had arrived late and were looking for something near our hotel (Mediterranean Beach) for something to eat. I spotted the Nama Tavern and recognised the name from Trip Advisor reviews and even though it was 10pm when we wandered in we had a friendly greeting from Michael, the owner, and were told of course we could eat there even though they couldn't offer the full menu so late.

Delicious lamb shank and mousakka followed at a very good price and we were then included in a birthday celebration for a member of staff and treated like old friends!! What a lovely start to our week in Cyprus!

We ended up eating here on another 3 evenings and thoroughly enjoyed each meal and the friendliness of Michael and his staff. His warmth, humour and generosity was fabulous and each meal was truly delicious. I had the chicken souvlaki twice and fillet steak which was wonderful. Michael happily gave us his thoughts on the dishes and everything was fresh and tasty. The service each time was excellent and very good value for money with large portions.

We enjoyed a late lunch here on our last day and were so sorry to say goodbye. The Nama will definitely be our first port of call if we ever visit Cyprus again. Thank you Nama and Michael!
