Nikos has the most unique and special restaurant. 80% of the ingredients used, are grown by him in his nearby farm and vegetable field just behind the restaurant.
We were a group of 10 people and all said the best food ever in Cyprus (we have been to Cyprus more than 10 times)
The typical Greek salad was excellent, the home made halloumi was outstanding, the kleftiko was so soft and tasty that it got the majority vote for the best dish of the evening from our group. The grilled chicken was the best chicken (free running feed only from leftover vegetables)
The 20 minute drive from the main Troodos road is definitely worth the effort.
When entering the town carefully watch the signs and you will find the restaurant easily (though some of the roads are narrow)
The cost of the Meze is Euro 18, which is excellent value for the quality of the food we got.
We were also treated to free desert and coffee
Nikos, your wife and the waiter (unfortunately did not get his name) can be very proud of the fantastic restaurant you run.

It was challenging to reach the restaurant through the narrow lanes of the village, but it was worth it! The owner is rightfully proud of his food: Fresh products, some from his garden, unique dishes with local aromas. We especially liked the Halloumi cheese and the stuffed zucchini flowers with 3 kinds of cheese. A bit expensive, and there is no menu to see the prices, but worth it!

Very very good food!!!
Fast & great service!!!
We arrived in parallel to a German group so we received fixed meal according to our needs.
The dishes came fast and the excellent atmosphere of the manager was felt in the restaurant.

Maybe one of the best taverns I ve visited on the mountains of Troodos. (And as Cypriots out standards are very high)! Symposio tavern offers not only quality food, but also some of the traditional cypriot food was cooked in a different way that made them even more unique. Halloumi was so tasty we were all wondering how it was cooked, and the same for beef liver! I would definitely reccomend it for a try!!

As someone how visited Cyprus many time I was totally surprised and amazed.
The way to the Taverna is bit tricky but once you notice the signs with the arrows you are set.
The place is beautiful stone house and the we had great welcoming.
What ever we took was great (!). We recommend the fresh Halumi cheese, the amazing stuffed Zuckini flowers and the highlight for us was the Mussaka. We skip the kleftiko because we were OVER but we
Will return to taste what we missed
Don't miss this Resturant!
