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.”


"My View" Concept

"MY VIEW" from the top of the hill, in a village just out of Lemesso is breathtaking, one can see from governor’s beach up to Akrotiri…. fabulous fields, rolling hills and the magnificent mediterranean… here, I will host your private dinner parties in my dining room adjacent to my open kitchen; small, intimate functions around the pool; grande sumptuous soirées; boozy Sunday lunches on the terrace; cocktail parties and cookery workshops. I look forward to welcoming you to my home…



Beyond the restaurant & workshops you can enjoy many different and exciting services that I design myself like menu creation, consultation and more, let’s speak and help you out.

My Books

Refresh your cooking, excite your guests and immerse yourself in sublime flavours. I’m not sharing just recipes with you, but my whole journey through Cyprus infused with my food discoveries.
