Though people prefer to use the taxis because reliable routes can be limited, in Cyprus,groceries are cheaper when compared to their cost in the United Kingdom, especially when it involves meat and fresh fruits, restaurant meals are generally cheaper as well. Prices of things vary and this depends mostly on the producer or the suppliers.
