It’s not every day I get a chance to dine in Limassol, so when the chance comes around, I do my due diligence and try to find something unique with food being the main focus.
This time, I got the chance to enjoy a delicious dinner in Dionysus Mansion, a place I have not heard of before.
Thanks to Limassol Magazine it quickly caught my eye and I am happy to report I was more than impressed.
The main allure of the restaurant for me was the lush garden in the backyard, with plenty of seating options and a beautiful atmosphere.
It feels almost impossible at times to find a place full of greenery in Cyprus, but when you do, it’s double the pleasure.
The front of the restaurant looks like an ordinary house, or rather a small villa. But the real magic hides in the backyard.
The stunning garden that stretches in the back of the restaurant offers a peaceful and romantic place to enjoy gourmet food while listening to the water trickling down the fountain.
We picked a relatively early time for dinner, to enjoy the place in peace and in good light (photographer’s mind).
The garden stretches under the crowns of the trees, decorates with wine quotes printed on the wood, romantic lights and floors covered with pink flower petals.
If I didn’t know any better, I would think the place is set up for a wedding.
Even though there are a lot of seating options available, even with more people dining it doesn’t feel too crowded as the space is fairly open.
It’s also facing the side road, so you don’t hear the traffic at all.
It’s so refreshing to get a food variety with so many new combinations, flavours and options that you find it very hard to choose just one thing for your dinner.
We went for the following: halloumi cheese with asparagus, pasta stuffed with porcini mushrooms, salmon on a bed of spinach for me and an enormous slow-cooked pork with sweet potato mash for my husband.
The food was immaculately presented, superbly cooked and very well received.
The staff was super friendly, attentive and professional.
I did also have a quick peek inside which also looked gorgeous, but no pictures to report with.
If you ever find yourself wondering where to have a nice romantic dinner, givea try.
The food, atmosphere and that gorgeous garden setting are well worth it!
