Cyprus, Food Haven.


kebab“There is no love sincerer than the love of food,” George Bernard Shaw said.

Cyprus cuisine is a unique blend of Greek and Arabic ingredients and flavors heavily influenced by the Mediterranean diet, which is said to be one of the healthiest in the world.

As with most Mediterranean countries, for Cypriots, food is enjoyed at a leisurely pace with friends and family. Even a cup of coffee can be a two hour pastime. Life is meant to be enjoyed in Cyprus and the finer things in life should never be rushed.

The Cyprus Kebab (Souvlaki) is the ultimate Cyprus street food which is served from the chain of traditional souvlaki shops around every corner from the towns to the villages.

The best way to experience Cypriot cuisine is to savor the delights of a traditional meze – a seemingly endless succession of ‘small plates’ of wonderful home cooked fare including the famous Cypriot halloumi cheese as well as other delicacies such as moussaka, succulent homemade sausages known as sheftalia, grilled marinated meats and delicious casseroles to name but a few.

The genuine warmth and hospitality of the Cypriot people ensure that any visitor to the island of sunshine and blue skies is made to feel instantly at home. What better way to say “stay” than to offer a good meal by the sea.

See you in Cyprus!
