About Us

Over 25 Years Experience in Great Food

Columbia Restaurants is an experienced company which began its journey in 1998, following its establishment as the restaurant division under Schoeller Holdings. It has since developed to become a leading company in its own right within the catering industry of Cyprus.

Since 1998, Columbia Restaurants has had the exclusive franchise rights to operate PizzaExpress, an international restaurant chain with over 500 restaurants across the UK and around the world, whilst adding to its portfolio in 2001, the Marzano concept in Cyprus.

Columbia Restaurants are also responsible for Columbia Plaza, one of the largest and most reputable multipurpose centres, unique to the island of Cyprus. Columbia Plaza offers state-of the- art entertainment, dining, business venues and townhouses right in the centre of Limassol’s old town.

Since opening its doors to eager crowds in November 2008, it has filled an important niche in the Cypriot market offering an array of dining and event venues in one easily accessible location. These include the award-winning Columbia Steak House, the self-service concept restaurant La Boca, the popular 7 Seas bar and club as well as the prestigious multi-functional Venue Centre that hosts special occasion parties such as weddings as well as being a certified training centre for seminars and conferences.

In 2017 a new concept opened a seafront all-day bar and restaurant, Columbia Beach. Columbia Beach, open throughout the year, quickly became an island-wide sensation attracting customers for brunch, lunch, coffee, dinner, drinks or just lazing by the sea.

The latest concept created by Columbia Restaurants opened in 2019. Pokeloha was the first poke bar, introducing Hawaiian sushi bowls to the island, for the first time ever, thereafter setting an industry trend.
