A taste of Cyprus is much more than a plate of food! Cypriots are warm and hospitable and each meal is more like a feast! For centuries, they have welcomed travelers to their shores because of the island’s position midway between three continents – Europe, Africa and Asia.

Cypriot cuisine gives an insight into the island’s colorful history, with dishes from the Middle East, Italy and even the United Kingdom! The traditional Cypriot diet, like the Mediterranean diet, is one of the healthiest in the world with large quantities of olive oil, fruit, vegetables, fish and legumes and only a modest amount of red meat and wine.
