How much is food in Cyprus

Food prices in Cyprus cannot be called cheap. Firstly, the island does not have enough fertile land to cultivate all the necessary crops and raise livestock. Secondly, the delivery of goods is possible only by sea and air, which affects the formation of their value. Thirdly, Cyprus is a resort where all the conditions are created that stimulate the tourist to leave as much money as possible in shops, cafes and other institutions.

Prices in restaurants and taverns of Cyprus, as well as grocery stores and markets are seasonal and territorial in nature. From the end of May to the end of September they are higher by an average of 20% compared with the rest of the months. In Ayia Napa and Paphos, food will be more expensive than in Nicosia and Limassol. Pricing is determined by the popularity of the tourist destination.

Breakfast in Cyprus

As a rule, tourists prefer breakfast in the hotel restaurant, as it is automatically included in the price. From about 7:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., the hotel offers its guests a buffet consisting of a standard set of delicacies: pastries, cereals, fruits, sausages and sausages, dairy products, egg dishes, juices, tea, coffee, etc. For this reason, only some cafes and taverns have breakfast on the menu. It can be continental or national. You can order all the same that is served at the hotel. A morning meal will cost from 12 to 20 €.

If you decide to visit a cafe or tavern on the beach without interrupting water activities and sunbathing, eating will cost you more than lunch at a cafe located some distance from the sea. The difference in price tag will be from 2 to 3 € for each menu item.

Snacks (mezhedhes) cost from 3 to 7 €. Soup – from 4 to 6 €. The price of meat dishes varies from 10 to 20 €.
