Cypriot food? We think it’s smashing.

Yiamas! Our love of Mediterranean food knows no bounds. After hitting the slow food trail in Cyprus last year, we are simply besotted with Limassol’s TV chef and all round celeb, Roddy Damalis.

South African born Roddy Damalis owns Ta Piatakia – Limassol’s favourite downtown restaurant since it opened ten years ago. Translated, it means ‘little plates’ – a clever take on the tempting mezze concept, where every dish is served on colourful dishes – while his dramatic red walls are covered in plates.

Roddy’s passion for fresh Cypriot ingredients is evident, his signature dishes are simple; local mushrooms drenched in hot Commandaria, feta parcels drizzled in honey, duck in green walnut preserve to name a few. His carefully edited wine cellar promotes small local estates from Cyprus’ emerging young vintners. Best of all, it’s the kind of place you can go regularly; in fact most weekends it’s hard to find a table.

Now practically related, ThreeSixty are delighted to be telling the media about his international success; featured in this month’s influential Food and Travel Magazine, as well as rave reviews by British travel writers in  Metro UK and a list of online such as The World Travel Guide.

Roddy’s acclaimed book, Ta Piatakia Mou sold out, so a second edition (with new recipies) is available on Amazon this month, or via his website www.roddydamalis.com Contact us for the latest press information and images.
