Welcome to Lenia's Traditional Tavern

The Home of Traditional Cypriot Cuisine

Authentic Location | Great Price | Unforgettable Food

Lenia’s Traditional Tavern is one of the last remaining jewels of traditional Cypriot Cuisine. Nestled in the picturesque village Psematismenos, located between Limassol and Larnaca, this small tavern serving only home-made Cypriot delicacies is one of the last of its kind. Mrs Lenia and her husband George have been running the Tavern for 30 years, using only the freshest local ingredients for their delicious home-cooked dishes.
Lenia’s Traditional Tavern is not for the mainstream Tourist, but rather for those eclectic travelers looking for something genuine and authentic.
Nowhere is this tavern’s traditional ways more apparent than the incredibly economical prices that would satisfy even the most frugal locals, and the exquisite rustic Cypriot cuisine that can only exist in such off-the-beaten-path taverns.
Need more proof that Lenia’s Tavern is the real deal? Just look at the regular clientele, comprised 70% of local Cypriots who are willing to travel away from their busy city centres’ to ensure they enjoy the authentic Cypriot dishes as made by their mothers’ and grandmothers.
