Fish restaurants tend to be expensive and a lot of them don't justify the price because the service is bad or something else makes it a bad choice. This is a place that not only has service, but quality as well. The owners have ensured that although you are paying a premium, you are getting a premium service as well.... More

This was a business trip and hence taken here twice by two separate parties, both of whom consider it the best in Nicosia. Had to agree. Food was excellent, nicely served. Wine was Greek rather than Cypriot, but this along with menus were ordered by the hosts. Can be a bit noisy, however, if you plan to talk business. The... More

Pyxida is a good seafood option in Nicosia. Liked the large choice of appetizers - ordered the tarama and the haloumi I cheese that were excellent. I then ordered the grilled octopus which was excellent - nice flavor of olive oil, lemon and oregano. My wife chose the shrimp saganaki which was only ok. Was a bit surprised that the... More

Assuming you like fish meze this is the place to go in nicosia at lunchtime. They have never dropped their quality. They also have a great fresh fish selection for those who do not mind large fish and are not mercury sensitive. The only downside is the fresh fish price per kg which is quite high for place with no... More

The best by far fish tarven we have in Nicosia. They have kept high quality of their food for many years. Their meze contains a wide variety of dishes including soup and desert at the end. It costs about 23 euros per person but it is totally worth it. It is highly recomended!

The food is fine, indeed. Nothing extraordinary. As most people claim. Have visited many times, last visit was early September, 6 of us, and apart from the grilled octopus which I ordered as main dish, I highly recommend as main dish for octopus lovers, and the vegetables, most other dishes are fine. Sure the fish is fresh and tasty, like... More

I tried their seafood salad and it was really delicius. But make a reservation a day in advance if you wanna be sure on having a... More

Our dinner last night confirmed that Pyxida Fish Tavern respects its standards, its very high standards, from year to year. The menu is extensive and whatever we ordered was superb. Excellent first salads, wonderful small fried shrimp, tasty cooked soupia, and as for the main courses, both grilled Octapus and the Xifias souvlaki were outstanding. Maybe this -my fourth, I...

If you love seafood, work up a big appetite and go with a companion to Pyxida Fish Tavern and order the seafood mezes on the back page of the menu. Incredible feast. Starts with a delicious fish soup; then traditional mezes such as olives, tahini, taramasalata, etc., accompanied by green salad with wonderful Cypriot tomatoes and cucumbers. Then comes an... More
