Like a slice of paradise. That is how I would describe The Palm House in Famagusta. Just steps away from the Palm Beach Hotel and with an unbeatable panoramic view of the Mediterranean Sea is this cosy restaurant located at the bottom of the corner of an apartment house. Surrounded by a romantic garden with purple bougainvilleas and palm plants it lies basking in the afternoon light when we walk through the door. Inside we are greeted by the aroma of coffee and a peacefulness that is in the air. The room is decorated in European style with a local touch, and on the wall one can see a lefkara pattern twist around the door. The owner Sezal Aydinli offers us hellim (halloumi) filled pastries that come freshly out of the oven. The meeting with The Palm House is love at first sight. It is such a place that you want to bring your favorite book to and just sit and be for hours.
The Palm House is the dream for those who long for Cypriot food prepared with care. Here you can come for cake and coffee, or dinner at sunset. The Sunday brunch buffet is very popular as well as the afternoon tea. The signature dish is slow cooked lamb and a lot of fish dishes and meze are also served.
Opening hours: 10:30 till late (the kitchen closes at 23:00).
