Probably the best fish restaurant in Cyprus

The food is fresh, the service is excellent and prices value for money. I suggest you have selected fish with a few starters and of course their fresh salad and tarama

Mouthwatering soup and fresh fish served here. You can pick and choose the types of fresh seafood you want, gr8 service, very attentive staff. Atmosphere is a little 'businessy' and have not seen any kids there on a few visits now. Very expensive.

A colleague and I tried this restaurant based upon TripAdvisor reviews. We did not have a reservation, but were seated immediately. Menu items had a wide range of prices, but we decided on the fish meze for 23 euro each. The staff also recommended a great wine to suit the meze. The dishes of the meze were outstanding and numerous.... More

As this is one of the most famous fish restaurants on the island, my standards were already set to "high expectations" mode before I even arrived there. In short, meeeeeh... The first standard entrée or "meze" dishes were definitely of a very poor quality, particularly taking into consideration the reputation of the place. The fish roe dip (aka taramosalata in... More

I have seen some reviews complaining about price levels been high at this tavern. However, I would argue that this is not true. In fact, Pyxida should be seen as a tavern having two faces: one which offers 'a la carte' dishes and high quality (high price) fish (like synagrida), and a second which consists of a reasonable fish-meze at...

Food is quite good. However, the staff is not friendly at all... sometimes even intimidating. It can definitely be a reason for not coming back.

Dont go for the mezze, order a la carte and if you are price concioua its not your place. They are the only onea offering blue fin sashimi and grilled. Sardines are just like in Greece and the fries are cut in house not frozen. You dont het that elsewhere anymore. Book to avoid dissapointment.

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.

High quality fish - excellent service by Cypriot or any standards - confident saying this is Cyprus' best higher quality fish restaurant
