My earliest recollections are focused on food, the kitchen and tables laden with dishes made with love. My fondest memories are filled with all the scents, sounds, textures, colours and tastes of each occasion.
Welcome to my World
of Fun Food Fusions
Hi, I’m Roddy Damalis and I’m here to create memorable dining experiences for you and every food lover who comes across this island. I’ve been in the food industry for quite a while - 30 years in fact - taught myself the craft and managed to become a restauranteur, TV presenter, cooking teacher and some might say contributor to contemporary Cypriot cuisine.
“My passion is to take our beloved traditional dishes and breathe new life into them with unexpected combinations that can erupt new and exciting flavors, for you to enjoy.”MORE ABOUT RODDY
