Fontana Restaurant Nicosia offers delectable Mediterranean dishes with excellent dining choices, not to mention the rich selection of wines. If you happen to be staying at the Landmark Hotel Nicosia, you do not have to look too far for a great meal. The chefs here are true masters of their profession, working with top quality meats as well as fresh lobsters, fish and seafood.
I did not have the opportunity to dine on this visit at the seasonal Pergola Grill Bar of the Landmark Nicosia Hotel as it was closed; however, be sure to check the dining experience from the previous visit. An experience not easily be forgotten.
The King Executive Suite I was staying, had access to two different breakfast locations -the Executive Lounge and the Fontana. I had mine out here once again, taking advantage of the a la carte menu, having the omelette of my own choice, and not only!

Now, this is my idea for breakfast! What a lovely way to start your morning! The buffet has everything you would dream of, looking great, tasting high and feeling good. With a wide choice, high quality and exquisite tastes, there are lots of items to cater, for all tastes. Waiters on hand at all times to refill coffee, or freshly squeezed orange juice, always with a smile and a kind word. Even Chefs are out to welcome guests and recommend what they believe you should not miss. It’s the little things like the quality of the service, the food and the drinks which really put this place over the top. They really don’t miss a beat. I would not think twice about recommending the @Landmarknicosia to my closest friends and family, so you must check it out. Thank you, Landmark Nicosia! @Fontanarestaurantnicosia #photooftheday #instadaily #sunsetlovers #amazingplaces #view #capture #horizon #skyline #hotel #hotellife #instamacro #colours #clouds #happy #europe #ig_europe #view #streetstyle #travelling #morning #instagood #travelgram #landscapephotography #instatravel #bedandbreakfast #foodstagram #mountainretreat #tranquillity #instaworld #fiersky
Classy and chic with a pleasant and cosy atmosphere, the buffet here has it all. Guests have the choice of a wide selection of hot & cold buffet which includes bacon, scrambled and hard-boiled eggs, sausages, cheese, mushrooms, grilled tomatoes and more. A variety of bread, jam spreads and preserves are also available. Beverages include tea, coffee and fruit juice. Healthy options are also plentiful, with salad, tomatoes, peppers and a range of fresh juices, yoghurt and fruit.
Here at the Landmark Nicosia Hotel, the team of the Restaurants has a personal way of approaching their guests. Cooks and chefs are on hand early in the morning going around welcoming repeaters and guests and check if anything is missing. The culinary reputation of this restaurant is quite impressive. In the capacity of a food critic, I dined here three times on this last visit, but quite many times the last several years and I know well the tastes and flavours of various dishes. The choice from the a la carte is abundant with a wide selection of grilled juicy steaks, seafood, refreshing and creative salads and tantalizing desserts.
The Lobster Bisque Soup
I found the Lobster Bisque soup incredibly delicious, mild in taste with a lovely texture and a rich flavour that I had it twice during my stay.
Don’t miss the Salmon Tartar; refreshing, and exquisite! Scallops left me satisfied with their buttery, sweet, delicate flavour and subtle texture. If you can afford, ask for both!
The Kale Salad
I tried the Kale Salad, which my friend had, and it was just as good, colourful and refreshing.

Main Course -Seafood
Out of the main course, the Lobster the first evening exceeded my expectations. Uniquely mild in flavour and rich in texture, was out of this world and was the dish that made the difference.
The fresh Grouper fillet smelled the sea and was well prepared! It is another exciting choice highly recommended. Slightly sweet with a moist, terrific mild flavour, you will love it!
Worth trying also is fresh from the sea catch Black cod. It stood on Quinoa with soy-ginger glaze. I love it in general, and it’s a gourmet fish. Cooked to perfection, had a delicate, silky texture and rich buttery flavour!
A range of local and international labels are wines to be found here. Our own choice two Rosé from Kyperounta winery and Aes Ambelis, both famous wineries in Cyprus.
Although I would mostly request fruit, I did try the Flower Pot dessert. Found the presentation creative and the filling for those who have a sweet tooth and love chocolate; the black cherry filling will leave them totally satisfied.
On the whole, both breakfast and dining experience was superb and highly recommended to food addicts. The service during the stay at the Landmark Nicosia Hotel was flawless, while the staff were punctual and present when we needed them the most. The Fontana Nicosia Restaurant deserves its status!

The Hilton in Cyprus is indeed a great choice of a stay. Exceptional hospitality and excellent cuisine! I was there on a business trip recently with a team of other collegues. Very professional staff and a great location. I love reading your Cyprus tips as I plan to return to the island too, but this time for holidays!
Your photos are so live Popi. Seems great restaurant definitely we shall be counting it in on our trip to Nicosia and why not checking at the Hilton this time as well. I will let you know.
