    DiscoverOur Story

    Established in 2015

    My father had a very successful restaurant in the heart of Holborn during and after the second world war. He took us all to Cyprus just after 1950 for education and holiday that lasted 12 years. We came back to England in 1963. Most of my working life I spent manufacturing ladies clothes and involved in properties. It was always my passion to be in the restaurant business to follow my father’s footsteps. My son owns a very successful restaurant in San Francisco and this is where the idea and concept were developed on my last break there. I came out of semi-retirement and started Pure Cyprus.

    I have based my dining experience of the past with my wife, to set high standards in delivering: excellent food using very fresh ingredients, customer service second to none and cleanliness that could be described as clinical. The rest was down to trial and error until we got it right. We are only as good as our last meal.

    My passion and dream are now complete.

    Pure Cyprus is a family run small operation in the heart of Finsbury Park in London. We offer authentic Greek food at very reasonable prices. It’s a casual setting with a focus on great service using only the freshest produce.

    Greek main meals incorporate a chosen meat with a large array of fresh vegetables, such as Moussaka that’s a favourite casserole style dish comprising eggplant, tomatoes, peppers, onions and in some instances, a form of meat even though it may also be enjoyed as a vegetarian meal. Delicious food is that which we know, that which we do, and that which we love.

    • Just visited this hidden gem. If you want a taste of the real Cyprus without leaving London, then you should definitely give it a try. The food is delicious and authentic, the staff are very friendly. Elias the owner couldn’t be more hospitable. Definitely one of the best Greek Cypriot restaurants in London.

    • Really enjoyed the food and cocktails yesterday, it was so well priced as well! I will definitely come back next time I am shopping in Fonthill Road!

    • This is a tucked-away, unassuming gem of a place! The food was impeccable; the lamb kleftiko was cooked to perfection. The atmosphere was lovely and the service was excellent; friendly and attentive. We even had the privilege of being served by a princess - Princess Sophia! You know it is a good sign when there are a group of Greeks sitting at the table opposite. If you are looking for truly authentic, traditional, great-tasting Greek food (like your Yaya makes it) then definitely pay this place a visit.

    • Run by Cypriots and lovely people. If your veggie or vegan they will adapt to your needs and make something for you if required. That’s good old hospitality’s to me..a rare thing these days. It’s off the beaten track but in a nice street so you can park if need be. Food was nice and the portions were large. Recommended.
