Words are hard to describe this taverna. The quality and quantity of each dish was excellent. The owners take great care in the food selection as well as the timing of when the dishes reach your table. This was the first time my wife had been to Cyprus and her dining experienced was what I was hoping you would discover. Cyprus, history and quality in every bite

‘’ Cyprus, history and quality in every bite’’. Love this phrase.

Dear reviewer thank you for choosing Louis taverna to dine out for the first time in Cyprus. During the winter we have a nice fire place in the middle of the restaurant which makes the atmosphere cozier.

We are grateful and we hope to see you again in the near future.

Best regards
Louis Taverna & Restaurant

One of the best places in nicosia to visit in my opinion. I am a regular costumer and believe the quality for years now is remaining consistent. The tavern is on a main road but outdoor sitting was a pleasant experience cause of the trees surrounding the side.

Great fresh food, Cosy atmosphere , Good service.
Keep the good work!!

My wife, daughter and I just spent a wonderful evening at Louis Taverna & Restaurant tonight. We happened to be the only guests there when we arrived so we had the most awesome hospitality from the owners, Louis and his wife in their cosy little restaurant! Louis served the food while his wife cooked the meal, and in between dishes we had nice long chats about life in Cyprus and also for us to tell them a little bit about Singapore :)

We had their traditional Cypriot meze - about 20 dishes including fresh salad as starters through to delicious watermelons and honey & nut pita for dessert! The food was amazing - very tasty, with a good variety that included chicken, beef, pork, liver, potatoes, vegetables, cheese etc. It was not like the meze we had at a previous restaurant - this one had real home-cooked taste.

After dinner we even had time to sit for awhile to chat and also caught a bit of the World Cup match while we waited for our cab to come.

All in all it was a great evening- good food, warm hospitality, and very reasonable price! Will certainly come back if we come to Cyprus again! Highly recommended!

Great quality, great variety of dishes and very we'll priced
All of the dishes were prepared out of great materials, were very well coocked and seasoned. The service was excellent, the owner mr Louis was very attentive and friendly . The serving of the dishes was perfectly timed, as soon we finished with one dish the next one was served.
The menu:
Cold starters: Greek salad, kefalotiri cheese and smoked ham, olives, yogurt, tahini salad,pita bread
Hot starters: grilled bread with olive oil! grilled hallumi and sausage, fried zuckinis with eggs, fried green (glistirida) with eggs, fried meatballs,mushrooms,
Mains:pork souvlaki, chiken souvlaki, shiefdali, pork fillet topped with grilled tomatoes, snails, lamb chomp fresh potato fries, beef liver.
I hope I didn't forget anything.
Dessert: strawberries , traditional fried pitta dessert with honey and nuts.

Highlights: all of the dishes were great but three definetly stand out.
1) best mushrooms I have ever had.
2)pork fillet
3)beef liver
Over Louis tavern is a great value for money tavern serving traditional Cypriot meze with excellent quality, variety and service. It's well worth the visit
