“A long and leisurely lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

With a late afternoon flight from Larnaca airport back to the UK, it made sense to head for Larnaca harbour and find somewhere for a long and leisurely lunch. The Dionyssos Fish Tavern caught our eye because of its attractive location by the sea. And what a splendid lunch it was! We wanted something substantial and were not disappointed. I had swordfish as my main dish: two enormous steaks. Two of the others raved over their grilled king prawns. Another was greatly taken with his octopus (well, it takes all sorts!). And my wife was in seventh heaven with a plate of small red mullet. It was all accompanied by an excellent salad and side dishes, washed down with a great deal of the excellent house dry white wine. The service was friendly and welcoming and the whole experience made a perfect end to our stay in Cyprus. Thoroughly recommended.

“ONE OF THE BEST RESTAURANTS WE HAVE BEEN TO”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

Maria welcomed us with a warm feel. She was very helpful, friendly and pleasant to talk to. We all felt very comfortable and enjoyed ever little bite from hers and her mother in laws great cooking! The best meal we had in Larnaca and the best service too. A great location beside the sea and next to the fort. If I had lots of money, I would get a flight to Larnaca just to go and eat there!!!

“One of the best in Larnaca Cyprus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

If you are up to great tasty food of any kind - fish, meat or vegetarian, this place is surely not to miss because it's one of the best in Larnaca Cyprus! It has tasty local cuisine and cozy homey athmosphere with a beautiful scenery view. If you like wine, ask for special Dionyssos home-made karafe of red or white dry wine. They also make nice home-made desert and they make delicious take-aways too!! :-)

“Delicious Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

We enjoyed a delicious meal at the Dionyssos Fish Tavern. We were on our way back to the UK after a spending a few very pleasant days in Nicosia. We chose the set menu, attracted by the sea bass. The meal was excellent value, beautifully prepared and cooked. The staff were very friendly and the restaurant has a lovely location beside the sea.

“Good, friendly local restaurant - good food and good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

We ate twice at the Dionyssus during our holiday. Good value food (particularly recommend the fish dishes, the taramasalata and the mixed grill) and the house white wine was excellent and very reasonably priced. Maria, the owner, was very friendly and helpful and we had after dinner drinks on the house both nights.

The restaurant is right at the end of the seafront, opposite the fort and is the only place on the seafront worth eating in. Recommended and we will go back again when we next visit Larnaca.
