Traditional Grecian tavern meets Cape Town city centre

Ouzeri is bringing vacay vibes with Cypriot-Greek cuisine and wine

Last updated: Friday, 17 June 2022

The new addition to the food and nightlife scene is a breath of fresh air in the bustling city centre. It gives major vacay vibes. After successful pop-ups around town, Ouzeri Restaurant settled and opened in Wale Street.

ENJOY THE TRADITIONAL VIBE

Ouzeri’s decor and music draws on influences from Cyprus and Greece, with traditional sleek white walls, arches and marble pedestals. The space feels like a breath of fresh air within the bustling city centre (and is inspired from traditional taverns).

TASTE CYPRIOT-GREEK CUISINE

Ouzeri pays homage to the food Chef Nic Charalambous grew up with and discovered on his travels in Cyprus and Greece, playing on nostalgic flavours and techniques. Try traditional halloumi, lamb ribs and youvetsi with beef shin, while enjoying a range of small-batch, local wines.


The price range starts from R60 a starter and R130 a main. Image: Ouzeri
