Had been a few times a couple of years back for the best lamp chops ever (yummmm) and heard the owners had introduced a Fresh Fish Friday (3F) event, which felt I had to try.. oh boy it is FRESH!!! Alive!!! Fresh crabs,oysters, clams, mussels, local kourkounes (rabbitfish) huge fresh shrimps, sparrow fish (σκαροι- a personal favorite!!!!) .... just couldn't choose! We were three so made our own meze with....most of the above ☺️(we=fish maniacs ) We absolutely loooved it all! Fresh local REAL potatoes, fresh salads, dips and of course ouzo !! Cannot wait to go back , atmosphere still warm and friendly, not much decor, simple and refreshed.. MUST visit for quality meals, and especially Fish Fish Fish George (the owner/manager) will make u feel like home and if u r lucky enough he'll sit with u and amaze u with his humor and knowledge!! We'll b back again n' again- 3F rocks

This restaurant provided excellent service, and the food was amazing too. Located a bit further from the centre, however it is totally worth it to visit this place. Would recommend for everyone who loves traditional Cyprian food :)

Thanks Mr Mart,
As you say, we keep the tradition alive 30 year now, as we are the oldest restaurant of the area under the same management and ownership.
Every Friday we offer the 3FFF (fresh fish Fridays)..
More surprising events coming soon!

Very friendly owner
Helped us choose our food & wine
Lots to eat & reasonable price
Finished with a complimentary pudding which was delicious & cherry liquor
Suitable for all , & staff make you really welcome. Fresh local fish on Fridays - a pity we couldn't go for that

Nice place to visit but expensive. Check the menu before ordering or following the reccomendations of the owner.

Thanks for being honest about our place.
Definitelyour place is not a cheap fast food place.
Its a real restaurant with fresh meals at good prices!.
Village salat and dips, bread and butter, for 2 people to start at 8:00 euros sounds ok!
