So Expensive!

This fish restaurant is so expensive that it is ludicrous. The quality of the food and the service is very good indeed, but definitelly not worth the money. There are so many better fish taverns in Nicosia and in Cyprus in general that should make one think twice before visiting Pyxida.

If it's good fish you're looking for then this is the place to go. The green olives marinated in lemon and coriander seeds are truly possibly the best on the island. The very generous seafood salad is excellent (though slightly too oily) and the octopus perfectly made. There is a choice of farmed or wild (at extra charge) fish as... More

Overrated, overpriced, crowded. I have been there 3-4 times in the last six years. Last time there, last October, I found a hair in my food and the staff was trying to convince me it was mussel beard.

As I am not a huge fish tavern enthusiast but having the experience of trying a number of fish restaurants in Cyprus, I have to say that this is the best fish tavern in the island, by far. In all honesty, it is one of the best restaurants in Cyprus in my opinion. My family and I are loyal customers... More
