If you're looking for great food and eclectic atmosphere, this is your place. Had the short rib burger with Caribbean music playing. The dinner menu has French, Thai, Italian, Indian, American and Lebanese items. Their emphasis is farm to table - fresh food cooked well. They succeed.

We went here on a recommendation from the staff at Old Edwards Inn and it was great! The food was fresh and cooked perfectly and the atmosphere was fun. There's a lot of variety too-I got the shrimp pad Thai and my husband got the gnocchi with lobster. Both were great as was our eggplant appetizer. And the bread-yum! We... More

We arrived around 9:00pm Friday night, still had quite a crowd. Menu was plentiful- appreciated the diversity of items. Great meal; will absolutely go back!

We made our first visit to the new location of one of our favored restaurants. They have even grown better. Every part of our meals rocked.

My first reaction was that it was a strange name for the concept, and that it was not possible to make all these different cuisines and do it well. My second reaction when eating it was pure surprise and delight! The Asian dishes were better than most Asian restaurants - I have eaten at many. The Lamb Tagine was delicious.... More

1st of all I do not understand why the rating for Cyprus is this low... We are from NYC and in town for a wedding. We came for breakfast around noon and were more than surprised by what we found only because it is winter and we had never been here. The coffee is served with a heavy whipping cream... More

My wife and I ate here on our actual anniversary, primarily because we could not find a reservation elsewhere. The restaurant is located upstairs, and it appears to be just one big room, including the open kitchen. As such, it is not an especially romantic setting. Both of our first courses were excellent. My wife had the Thai soup and... More

We were so excited about having dinner here but it did not go well. We had a table on the outdoor patio which was great. We were at the furtherest table from the restaurant (not a complaint) but in addition to serving us, our server had a very large party at a table that was inside and all the way... More

We enjoyed a late Saturday brunch here on an off season day when there were only about three or four other parties. The service was a little slow and our meal items were delivered in stages. For instance, my husband's bacon was brought separately instead of atop his burger. Worthy of mention: the home fries, delivered belatedly --fresh from the... More

Award Winning Chef Nicholas Figel introduces destination quality International Cuisine to Highlands, NC.

In the Cyprus open kitchen, we take our inspiration from peasant foods and traditional cuisines from around the world. We hand harvest our vegetables and shop the ethnic markets to deliver authentic and traditional International flavors.

We feature a unique regional menu, written and executed each day in the Cyprus kitchen, always by hand, and always using time honored, traditional cooking methods.

The dining room is relaxing, inclusive, and a great place to enjoy great food and good times with friends.
