Fine dining at Pralina Experience
" Pralina's special goal is to take its customers on a dreamy journey of sweet sensations "

Pralina Experience is the restaurant arm of Pralina Confectioneries, a member of the Zorbas group of companies.

Renowned for its patisserie made with the finest ingredients, its top chefs and perfect service, Pralina’s special goal is to take its customers on a dreamy journey of sweet sensations.

Executive Chef Elias Aristotelous and his brigade prepared the menu for our dinner. The wines were selected Head Sommelier Vasos Manoli, who was the 2009 Best Sommelier of Cyprus and also is an Officier Maître Sommelier member of the Chaîne.

Before we took our places for dinner, a glass of Champagne Ruinart Brut Rosé was delicious at the reception.
