Well worth a visit

Absolutely spectacular setting and view. And the food is WAY better than what you might expect from an obviously touristy place. We had only a light snack (4 people sharing one calamari), and we were surprised that it was so good. So, we're the most informed about everything on the menu, but if... read more

We were stuck in Petra tou Romiou at lunch-time waiting for the bus back to Pafos and noticed in the cafe by the bus-stop that they offered a shuttle up to this restaurant. When we reached the restaurant, the manager seemed to lose interest in us when we declined to choose from the fresh fish chiller and settled on the... More

This is operated by the Cyprus tourist board in a view to bringing in visitors. Staff are hit and miss and we've had better food, cheaper elsewhere. Use the cafe down the road for a snack and car parks on the cliff for views. The place was empty when we went. Sunsets are superb, but it could be so much... More

This is a much better option for food when visiting Aphrodite's Rock - its along the road a bit and drive up a bit of a hill - this gives great views when you eat. You have to drive here as its in the middle of nowhere. The food is very authentic and service fine for a tourist place. We... More

Sitting on a hill above Petra tou Romiou Bay, this fish restaurant has a small terrace with a large dining room attached with huge windows. Unassuming to look at from the outside the views are truly wonderful, and one can sit and watch the Cypriot sunset in all its glorious technicolour. A decent menu, we ate here twice and were...

Although we were there first, two other tables came in and were given complementary bread, which we weren't, followed by disappointing food and a real lack of effort from the waiting-on staff, who didn't even listen well enough to bring us a simple bottle of pepsi. If you, like us, were just driving past and needed a place to eat,... More

Tourists use it if they know no better, as a local we tried it and found the food below standard, the service matched the food. Unfortunately tourists are attracted to it by its unique location and that's it, enjoy the view.
