Lovely simple beach restaurant specialising in fresh fish

A firm favourite on our visits to Cyprus. Lovely location overlooking a small unspoilt beach. We usually walk along the cliff tops from Melanda Heights to Melanda beach which is about a 40 minute countryside walk with glorious views. We are then rewarded with a lovely lunch at this family run... read more

The French have a saying you don't eat the table cloth and Melanda Beach falls into this category. It is simply furnished but extremely clean and the food is to die for. They have an extensive menu but their seafood comes highly recommended. I love octopus and it is superbly cooked giving the impression of melting in your mouth. My... More

Set on an unspoilt beach and serving fresh fish this restaurant is off the beaten track and worth the drive. Delicious calamari and prawns in a lovely sunny setting by the sea - perfect!

The beach itself is very quiet and not at all commercial. We ate lunch at the beach restaurant which was much better than what we expected. It was interesting to see the small fishing boat delivering fresh fish, so of course we went for the fish meze. All courses were totally acceptable - simply done but really fresh. The sea... More

A lovely place for lunch - nice food, good service and a fantastic view of the sea across the bay. This is a casual and relaxing place to eat.

I booked a table for 3 for a Sunday lunch and birthday treat. Instead of the usual fish dishes, we decided to choose the Kleftico and roast potatoes,with a salad and tahini. We were not disappointed. The service was excellent and the food was superb.it was probably the best meal we had in all of our ten day holiday. Well... More
