Learn Greek Food and Drink vocabulary is key...

...if you plan to head for the mountains

Cyprus meze

Whilst most restaurants, bars and hotels in Cyprus have plenty of English speaking staff, it really helps to know a few Greek words when you are eating out.

It's good to learn greek food and drink vocabulary. The owners and restaurant staff will really appreciate you making an effort to speak their language and will also help you out if you're not sure how to pronounce a word.

If you head inland for lunch or supper in one of the mountain villages, you may well need some of these words as many villagers do not speak any English at all! Or at least they PREFER to speak in Greek as it's much easier for them.
