Melanda Magic

My first time back in 10 years and the swordfish is as good as I remember. Makis has a good menu variety and the venue makes eating here an absolute pleasure

If you're looking for a nice quiet little taverna to just relax in, this is the place to go. A tucked away, remote little gem of Cyprus. On the sandy beach, close by to Pissouri, it is a strikingly good balance of the senses. The view is stunning, overlooking the whole penninsula with very few people around. Crystal blue seas...

Have the fish meze and position yourself to look out onto the Avdimou Bay with a glass of wine and you have the perfect combination of one of the best restaurants this part of Cyprus has to offer.

This was simply the best food we had in Cyprus, mussels were superb I kept on dipping the shell back to drink the sauce as a soup.

We lived in Cyprus for some years and remember the fresh fish cooked to perfection so decided to venture back 8 years later. We were not disappointed! The menu has an option of fresh fish A or B. The waiter explained that A was red mullet, and B was sardines. Having suffered poor quality, frozen, badly cooked fish many times,... More

We went searching for a pretty cove and found this gem with great views of the beach. The staff were friendly and very accommodating and the food was fabulous! The food was fresh, very well presented and very tasty. I would without a doubt recommend this wonderful family run local fish restaurant.

It was last May when we visited Melanda during a bi annual fortnight holiday which has been the 'norm' for us for many years. If you are looking for 'silver service' or beach club this is not for you. That said it has everything going for a beach taverna/restaurant. A fantastic location; with plenty of space on a sand-shingle beach,sunbeds... More

Melanda Beach Taverna is a real treat!! The little bay is beautiful. The crystal clear turquoise water and the rocky outcrops on both sides are a perfect backdrop for a great meal. As to the great meal, Melanda certainly delivers!! We were a group of nine and we took a wide variety of dishes from the menu and the daily... More

We were vey surprised by what looked like a ramshackle kitchen with a bit of outdoor seating. Don't be fooled, this a a great place to have fresh seafood. We started with the village salad, which is great value for money and very refreshing on a hot summer's evening. We went on to have the sea bass and squid and... More

I just love coming here for lunch. Simple well cooked fresh fish, friendly service and reasonably priced. The location is a major factor adding to the overall experience, just 20 metres from the sea edge, fishing boats moored a little way off and great views across to altitude.
