If there is one major element that characterizes the Cypriot gastronomy, it is its freshness. The other is the diversity of dishes that you will find in Cyprus. The Cypriot cuisine due to its Greek, Turkish and Middle Eastern influences offers some exclusive dishes and culinary experiences. Cyprus cuisine is chiefly Mediterranean. Lots of fresh vegetable dishes, fresh fish dishes and a lot of specialty meat dishes are all you can find on the platter. Cyprus food is analogous to that of Greece and other eastern Mediterranean countries, but with some extra Turkish and Middle Easter influences. Accompany your banquet with one of the many brilliant Cypriot wines, or the Cypriot beer, KEO.
