Apart from “Stou Kyr Yianni” I thought it would be worth trying a more traditional taverna in Omodos, and see if one can indeed find good food in a touristy village. Fortunately our task was accomplished as the very friendly Mr Themistoklis and his daughter offer up to standard “meze”, also obvious from the number of village visitors that they attract.
The restaurant itself is quite humble, situated in the centre of the village with a large patio overlooking the cute alleys. As far as the menu is concerned, apart from the “a la carte” choice, there are two types of “meze”: on-the-grill and cooked dishes. We opted for the latter. The local dips were fantastic, most of which are made by Mr Themistoklis himself. The fried meatballs and “koupepia” were truly delicious, while the “mousakka” even though quite good it had slightly too much béchamel for my taste. From the grilled meat section, the pork “souvlaki was a bit too dry, but the chicken that was cooked to perfection compensated for it.
All in all it is a very good taverna with a lovely patio and a quite good traditional “meze”. We paid 45€ for two including local red wine.

Note: it is in the old village of Omodos, take the main street down towards Kyr Yiannis and the first left after that. The locals are happy to give directions if you need to ask them.
