Artisan’s Burgerbar

With fascinating blends and a huge variety of options, Artisan’s has something for all

This restaurant has to be top of the list, as their dishes are widely known amongst the locals and offer a wide variety. They offer homemade beef burgers, and their recipes are imaginative and can please all palates, whether you like BBQ sauce, lots of cheese or something a little healthier. If you’re not a fan of beef, fear not, as chicken, salmon and prawn burgers are all on the menu, as well as vegetarian options. For a more Cyprus feel, try the burger with halloumi, caramelised onions and mint sauce, or the burger with feta cheese and tzatziki.

Moondog’s Bar & Grill

Craving a juicy double decker layered with cheese and bacon? Try Moondog’s

This American-style bar blends all-time classics and quirky burger alternatives, including one with a prawn and coconut sauce. Walking into Moondog’s will remind anyone of a bar in the USA, with its American-inspired decoration. There’s plenty of sitting space, but it can get packed, so make a reservation to be assured a spot. It’s famous also for its large selection of beers, and an ice-cold brew makes the perfect addition to your burger. Add a side of chips, potato wedges or curly fries.

Limoncello Deli-Bar

In the old Ayios Antonios market, which hosts some shops and deli-bars, is the popular Limoncello. There are lots of tasty menu suggestions, but its burgers are the most popular items on the menu – they are hearty, fresh, served in a brioche bun and paired with homemade fries. The atmosphere is charming, with low lighting and outdoor seating for most of the year.

D.O.T Restaurant

This is a charming restaurant in the old town of Nicosia that’s established quite a name for its menu. Covering many cuisines, from pasta and fresh salads to fish and its popular weekend brunch, D.O.T’s dishes won’t disappoint. One of the most famous items on its menu is the burger: herby and well-cooked with a side of chips and delicious sauces. The restaurant’s vintage decor and cute atmosphere charms anyone dining. A chicken burger and a veggie burger are also available, and there are vegan and vegetarian options for starters, mains and desserts.

Olives & Burgers Healthy Café

For those who believe that burgers can only be an unhealthy meal, this café proves otherwise. With a mindset of providing healthy alternatives with fresh ingredients, most of their dishes are low in calories and fat, promoting a more balanced diet. Their beef burger is made with lean meat, homemade ketchup and sauces, with 68% less fat and 73% less saturated fats than many other burgers. And that’s not all that’s on the menu: quinoa and beetroot burgers as well as other veggie combinations are available for those wanting a break from meat. Served with a side of salad and oven-baked potatoes, it’s certainly filling. Eat in or take away are both available.
