“MAMAS THE BEST CYPRUS FISHTAVERN”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

Located at Ayios Theodoros village(Larnaca district), not far away from Zygi and is just on the beach,viewing the sea.We visited the place many times ( once a month ), with family or friends, as fish is always excellent, fresh and too much,have good service and reasonable prices,having in mind that fish is always expensive in Cyprus. Last Sunday, we were six persons, we ordered
fish-meze for 5 persons (various dishes of fish including salad and fried potatos), 4 big very cold Beers, two bottles of water and wine for one person, fruits & dessert, 5 coffees, a Nescafe and we paid 140 euro.Really the food is fresh, tasty, more than enough and value of money. I surely recommend it, be sure of making a reservation, especialy on Sundays as is always busy.
My pictures a thousand words.

“You must go to Mamas”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

This is the best fish I have ever had. The Fish Mezze is a must have, it says minimum 2 persons on the menu but it will feed 4 easily. It includes all the fish on the menu including squid, octopus, sardines, red mullet, crab, cuttle fish and many more. It's situated right on the beach and all the locals eat here. It was recommended to us by a waitress at our hotel and we can't thank her enough. Location - you need to go to Zygi and then drive about 10 minutes east along the coast road. It's worth the effort and it's also excellent value, we couldn't believe how reasonable it was, enjoy!

“Excellent fresh tasting fish meze”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

Celebrating birthday and decided to take family out for fish meze. Following up on Tripadvisor reviews called first thing to book table for early lunch sitting as being 1st april holiday knew that it would be busy. Excellent directions given by Mamas the owner and our reserved table was perfectly situated at opening out to the garden facing the sea. The meze started with beautiful fresh salad, fried baby kalamari, octopus in wine, fried red mullet and wopa, Cyprus chip potatoes, and followed up with soft shelled crabs, breaded crab claws, grilled cuttlefish and a good size sea bream per two people. Dessert was Cyprus fruits in syrup and oranges and mespila.
The setting right on the pebble beach is perfect, the staff are all very efficient and pleasant, what else can I say but go! Best to book on a weekend or holiday as was very busy when we left. We will definitely return.

“Perhaps the best Seafood restaurant in Cyprus”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

Had a great day out here at Mamas and the proprietor and staff were excellent. As to the cuisine it was faultless. We had a kilo of fresh red mullet both fried and grilled, the former being preferred together with a superb fresh local salad and great chips. Their freshly squeezed orange and Vodka was to die for, followed by a bottle of Magic Mountain (Greek) dry white wine. Mamas kitchen and toilets were spotlessly clean.

The only down side is trying to locate this excellent restaurant, not helped by their sign being in Greek only. On the coastal road out of Zyygi and midway towards Mazatos

“Just the best fish ever”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

Went for Sunday lunch and the place was buzzing. Had the most amazing prawns full of flavour and very large. This was followed by a beautiful large and very fresh seabass. Absolute heaven !! The Greek salad and chips were also amazing. If you love seafood you simply must go!! Already booked for next week.
