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.
Fantastic authentic Greek food, always fresh & delicious, the owners are great, and Nicos who served us, takes so much care in what he does, highly recommended if you're looking for that Mediterranean feel!
Authentic cuisine. You can really feel the Cypriot taste. If you close your eyes you couldn't tell that you're in London. The owner is very nice and very open.
I'm not going to much other than this place is a must for Mediterranean cuisine! Food was fantastic but mostly felt like we were visiting family because the staff were just so friendly and authentic.
Freshly made, very tasty food at a very reasonable price. Friendly host enthusiastically explained each dish of the Meze we ordered as it was served. So much food we took a box home of what we couldn't finish it all.
