Absolutely delicious we ordered the Fish Meze! Everything was so tasty and very fresh. The service was friendly and fast and the location is divine, there is nothing like dining with a view of the ocean. A must when in Protaras actually a must when in Cyprus.

Really good food. Fresh fish dishes. Loved the prawns in white garlic sauce. A bit expensive if you order dishes. Fish meze is cheaper. No fruits were served at the end whereas when we visited last year they offered us watermelon. Nice romantic environment.

It is hard not to get a good table at Kalamies, as it is quite a large open plan space facing the beautiful blue sea. I had heard a mixture of reviews, both good and bad, but wanted to check this out for myself before making up my mind. We asked if we could see the fish in their fridge... More

This restaurant is right on the beach, its the perfect location to enjoy great food whilst watching the sunset. Its menu is mostly based on seafood however if thats not your thing they also serve great fillet steak. Its a big restaurant but the owner still managed to come over to us with our 8 month old and say hello.... More

This is a restaurant that has a very good reputation amongst the locals for fresh fish. It is the second time we tried it and both times food was very disappointing. This time we asked for mezedes but most of the food was deep fried and soggy. Someone can assume that they fried the fish to hide its poor quality.... More

I must admit we are so confused about your comments “Recommended but disappointed” ; especially coming from a diner who knows Cyprus food so well. Some Traditional, Authentic Meze dishes are fried and deliciously crispy; There are also many grilled dishes of fish and seafood. This is exactly what we offer to our guests and we are very proud for... More

Again we were guests of our lovely Cypriot family who specifically chose the dishes for the mezze. As well as tzatziki, taramasalata, olives & lovely soft Cypriot rolls we were treated to calamari tempura ( the best I've ever tasted has been in Protaras ) octopus, mussels in ouzo ( absolutely gorgeous ) & the star of the meal -...
