“Great food and enjoying atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was more than enough and very well cooked. There was a big variety of cold and hot plates and beers kept on coming, always cold!
It is a big enough place. You can very well sit on the outside part, as well as inside for the colder days and nights. There is a duette of singers (bouzouki and guitar) palying and singing very nice, Greek songs. However, one can find it difficult to have a good conversation since the music can be very loud, especially when seated near a speaker.

“Santa Katerina Tavern”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013

I have been there with friends. It is not far away from Nicosia just twenty minutes. The food was very tasty with a great variety. The owner is very kind and friendly. Most of all I enjoyed the live music, as the two singers entertained us with their warm voices and their lovely greek songs. Finally, I also have to comment the reasonable prices of the menu, and I would suggest it to anyone who wants to spend his/ her night in a pleasant way.

“Very good meze... worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2013

I have been there with a very large company and the surprising fact is that none of them had any complaint whatsoever about the food quality or quantity. A classic cypriot taverna at its best!
Service was excellent though not professional, however was more than u could have expected to get at a taverna.
Located at a very special village outside Nicosia (25 mins from the centre) this taverna at Potamia is knwon around Cyprus for its food but also for its location as it is situated at a bicommunal village, one of the many few remained on the island (Greeks and Turks). Acutally even the personnel of the taverna is bi communal.
Special treat... the dessert!! fresh home made galatobourekko one of the unique sweet delicacies of the island!! served warm right from the oven!
That night I also has a very unique wine I had never tasted before. The maratheftiko (local variety) of the loel (brand). Maratheftiko os indeed a very distinctive wine that is starting winning funs outside the territory of Cyprus, around Europe.
