If you want a fantastic burger you cannot get any better than what is served at Cypress for lunch. There is a burger and brunch menu and all the items are great, service is great and you will want to go back.

We have made it a tradition to enjoy a delicious brunch or lunch at Cyprus each time we have been in Highlands. Mouth watering food that we look forward to each time and it never disappoints.

We ate at Cypress for dinner. The wait staff very very attentive and friendly. The menu features dishes from various countries. I had Thai dish that very good and my wife had a Moroccan dish that she enjoyed. Fairly reasonably priced.

Food was great. Service was mediocre. Not worth the high prices in my opinion. But the creole lobster dish was fantastic.

Great views and food. The wonderful presentations of the food are mouth watering. Try to get a table by the window for the views. Overall, one of the best lunch places in the Highlands.

In the Cyprus open kitchen, we take our inspiration from peasant foods and traditional cuisines from around the world. We hand harvest our vegetables and shop the ethnic markets to deliver authentic and traditional International flavors.

We feature a unique regional menu, written and executed each day in the Cyprus kitchen, always by hand, and always using time honored, traditional cooking methods.
