Because of its location in the harbour this is a popular spot but expensive for what you get. I went for a mixed seafood grill but have to say I was a bit underwhelmed and don't think it was worth what I paid for it....More

We had a few recommendations from local people to go there. For a start it took about 15-20 min to get drinks. Lots of staff but most of them seem just to hang around. We ordered dips with pita bread, octopus, tuna tartar on mango-avocado...More

I just went to the restaurant. As main experience it was ok. The staff is ok but not friendly at all. They are like a lil bit robotic. Otherwise, the food is probably the thing that makes it so special.

In a beautiful scenery right in front of the picturesque Ayia Napa's Fish Harbour, a local fisherman named Vassos was inspired to create his Taverna back in 1962. At the beginning it was a coffee shop for the few local fishermen operating in the harbour. Some years later the coffee shop was transformed to a small local Fish Taverna that became the purlieu for Cypriots fish lovers especially during weekends aiming to enjoy the fresh fish caught by Vassos and was cooked traditionally by his wife Zympoullou! Today, Vassos Fish Harbour has grown to one of the biggest Fish Tavern in Cyprus accommodating 400 people at any time but remained a Fish Tavern that only servers exclusively local Cypriot fresh fish. That is the reason why it became the top hot spot for Locals and Tourists that love real fresh fish and other delicious meals always traditionally prepared. Vassos Fish Harbour restaurant is open for 365 days from 11 a.m till Midnight.
