Situated on a quiet beach 3km down a gravel track but easily accessible by any motorised vehicle. Fresh fish and in fact all food. They are known for feeding 200 people in one day bearing in mind they close at 5pm. There is a roof but no walls for the customers. The breeze is welcome and the food great.

I have been coming here for the last 20 years as my dad was stationed in the RAF near to the restaurant. The food is excellent, the prawns and halloumi are two of my favourites. The salad and tahini are the best on the island. I will always come back here! It's a must, as others have said, don't be... More

I have been going Melandas for 17 years. In all that time I have never been disappointed. The fish is fresh the staff are very friendly and the location is brilliant. Don't be put off by the Cypriot track to get there it is worth the trip.

When I was stationed in Cyprus 31 Years ago I use to go to this small, remote restaurant because it was on the Med and had great food. It has changed in being larger BUT the food and services are still wonderful. Hard to find but go if you can and also enjoy the Rocky beach there. Fresh fish a... More

My wife and I have visited this restaurant many times over the years. We always visit at lunchtime. It sits above the beach and has very good views out to sea. It is always very busy and is popular with both locals and visitors. You have to drive down a dusty track from the main road for about 2 miles.... More

Great for a long Greek style lunch. Best grilled Octopus (on as a special) I've had in ages. Recently cut down the shady vine, replaced with a more substantial roof, so not as picturesque, but still pretty unique for Cyprus. Could be on a little Greek island. Sheltered bay with sun beds and parasols. Traditional fare. Sunday buffet lets it... More

A lovely, idyllic fishing bay with multi-coloured Cypriot fishing boats bobbing about in the water after bringing in their fresh daily catch. We often pop into the Taverna for their delicious fish and chips having sailed around the headland from Pissouri Bay. I mention our visits a number of times in my book "Sailing with Sam".

If you want a quiet few hours on a beach with a taverna for lunch this is the place for you. The beach is a little stoney in places but once in the water there is sand and you can go far out in safety. The taverna serves excellent fresh food especially fish.
