Award Winning Chef Nicholas Figel introduces destination quality International Cuisine to Highlands, NC.

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.

The dining room is relaxing, inclusive, and a great place to enjoy great food and good times with friends.
