The Best Restaurant in Cyprus - 'The Sama' in Spilia - Troodos Mountains

Posted on October 25, 2011

The Sama restaurant in Spilia combines not only the best food, flavours, wines and aromas but it's the atmosphere and the hospitality which wraps it all up to be the best restaurant in Cyprus.

Tired of work and needing a break to chill or just looking for some great food and hospitality with a dash for style? Then head for Spilia Village in the Troodos Mountains.

My wife and I needed a break and arranged for our kids to join us at Marjay Inn in Spilia - Having booked on line and being sent the menu via email, we were all ready for a lazy weekend with the kids. Spilia is off the Troodos-Kakopetria road map here  - It is about a 40 minutes drive from Nicosia and Limassol in the heart of the Troodos Mountains.

When we arrived, via directions from the locals, we were very surprised by the excellent condition of the Inn and their beautiful rooms. There are only 8 rooms so a good size family or group can settle in for a weekend or longer periods.

We had not realised the Inn's restaurant is in another location in the village so more adventures lay ahead. We walked through the village and found this glorious church and its bell located in the adjacent tree, most unusual and striking.

As evening arrived, a long with the rest of the family from various parts of Cyprus, we sat around the Inn's cozy lounge reminiscing about yesteryear and inched our way to the restaurant no more than 100 meters up the road not sure what we would find.

I can not recall any restaurant with such character, charm and style and we had not eaten a morsel yet! Outside there is a very attractive coffee area with the ground floor housing the kitchen and a smaller restaurant beautiful decorated in Cypriot village style and a cozy fireplace. Picture below of the upper ground floor restaurant.

In the basement are another two restaurant areas which makes the whole atmosphere so unique.

Simply the most beautiful and best restaurant in Cyprus we have visited.

Directions to Spilia

The Marjay Inn is situated in the small village of Spilia, which is located in the Troodos Mountains, 1100M high. If you approach the village from Nicosia you pass the village of Kakopetria and driving further for 3km, you will see the sign to Spilia village. Take this turning towards Spilia and follow this road in the forest. You will reach the village after 4km.

If you approach from Limassol, you will turn right after the village of Trimiklini and you will drive towards the village of Kato Amiandos. Passing this village and up to the main Troodos - Nicosia road, you will turn right towards Spilia.

You will find our hotel in the middle of the village, just after the series of bronze statues on your right hand side. You will recognize us from our characteristic entrance.

The Sama restaurant is just before the Marjay Inn and you will easily find it as you turn left into the village, and it is on your left.

Enjoy and Bon Appetit
