Within this picturesque oasis, high in the mountains of Karaman – better known as Karmi – lies this characterful restaurant Levant. It’s set in the centre of this quaint village with a cosy atmosphere and natural mountain setting which will take your breath away, boasting commanding views over the island, St. Hilarion Castle and the Mediterranean Sea.
Levant is one of the most beautiful venues on the island and the hospitable hosts Ken and Debbie Nikolai, originally from Canada, meet and greet their guests with a warm smile. They are always there to ensure that the customers will have a great dining experience.
This most definitely adds an inviting atmosphere together with their European style cuisine which is regularly changed and with ‘specials’ keeping it exciting. Debbie says “We do our very best and make sure our standards are kept to the highest level. We can accommodate most dietary restrictions and requests too outside of our menu.”
Sunday lunch is something they pride themselves with, so to avoid disappointment it is advised to book.
When you walk into Levant you can be sure to be charmed with their cosy indoor bar and dining room, where during the winter months you can enjoy the roaring open fire. On the rear terraced dining area you can enjoy the stunning views of St. Hilarion Castle during all seasons.
Situated opposite the restaurant Levant has a café where you can enjoy delicious homemade cakes, ice-creams, coffee, hot chocolate and much more.
It is the ideal venue for any special occasions such as wedding parties, anniversaries, birthdays etc. Christmas bookings are already underway.
