Zanettos in the heart of the old city is a traditional cypriot restaurant with first class meze. Excellent food and great portions can satisfy even the most difficult customer. Dont expect luxurious surroundings but service and food is top.

Impressive meze menu, with countless colourful dishes. Taste is ok, atsmosphere fine, and prices affordable. Go for it for the Cypriot experience.
