Everything I had there was delicious. Especially the pastas were my favorite. You can try their sangria with pleasure. There are several bars nearby. The staff was very helpful. You can try the evening snacks with a beer after sightseeing.

This restaurant is in a lovely setting by the Selimiye mosque, and has a wide selection of Mediterranean-influenced food and drink - a nice touch was the vino tinto con limon. Pastas were good, especially the penne pasta with sirloin, Gorgonzola and sundries tomatoes.

This is one of my favourite restaurants on the island. The food is tasty and location is charming especially when the bougainvilleas bloom! Such a treat for your eyes and stomach in the old city Nicosia! p.s. don't forget to try the sangria!

El sabor Latino has been a great place to eat for islanders since the day it's opened it's doors which was 2004 as far as I remember. Located in the old city centre of Nicosia, it offers a beautiful view from the courtyard. The food...More

Not sure about it however on a general note, the business of restaurants are based upon customers and have not seen restaurant taking day off. It should be open.
