We have been operating since April 1992.

The environment is unique and our secret garden is truly an oasis in the city as it is full of trees, flowers, has an artificial fish pond and offers our customers peace and relaxation. After all, Atrion means a garden surrounded by a building. But our mission is not only to offer peace and relaxation to our customers. We provide excellent quality food with creative dishes and very friendly service.

I am the director and owner of Atrion Restaurant and a graduate of the "Higher Hotel Catering Institute" of Nicosia. I have 30 years of experience in the catering industry. I worked on "Royal Viking Line" world cruises and as a Maitre d' in several hotels in Pafos. Since 1992 I have been running my own restaurant, Atrion.

Thank you very much Mr. Herakleous. We wish you the best and we are sure that people will continue to support you. Your place is idyllic and your food delicious.
