Very good quality

Usually too crowded but with a reason. Very good fish (rare in Nicosia). Many places to seat with different atmosphere. Stuff good and friendly keeping a high standard at the same time.

Excellent fresh fish cooked to perfection in the old cypriot traditional meze style. Great and professional service. Good and wellcoming interiors. Prices are considered fair for the fish quality that they offer but they are really pricy for the average middle class wallet!

My wife and I ate at chose this restaurant because it was recommmend by a local taxi driver as a 'special place' to eat, and he was right. It is predominantly sea-food based ( as you would expect from the name). The place is bright and modern and perhaps a tad minimilist, but this is not a derogatory comment -... More

When it is cool enough, it is a pleasure to sit under the pergola outside and watch the who's who of Nicosia conduct business and social meetings at this great eatery. When summer sizzles, move inside for your feast. Everything is fresh and honest, the bread, the impeccably dressed salads, tarama, tapenade, the dainty inkfish tentacles, the whole catch of... More

It is split into several different rooms and also has a large external terrace & garden area for dining in the Summer months.The fish is fresh every day and there is a large fridge cabinet in the main entrance with the fish...

I have been eating at Pixida regularly for many years now. The standard has been consistently top notch. Super fresh food together with the nice set-up of the restaurant and upmost professional service always makes it the perfect evening (as I normally go there for dinner). To be honest, I ate seafood in different places in the world; however I... More

I was taken here by work colleagues and they made a very good choice! Great fresh fish, a lively atmosphere and good service. I wasn't paying so I can't comment on value for money but the food was lovely. Overall a very good meal.
