Description: 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.

“Really good menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2012

The Vassos fish taverna is colse to beach with nice view on sea, beach and aurround. There are many tables under umbrellas. We chose octopus and calamari. Dishes were fresh and good seasoned. White wine was bracing and tasty. We recommend this taverna for dinner. The service was very nice, polite and usefull. If we go there once again we will visit this place for sure.

“Fresh crabsticks, anyone?”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2011

After reading about this restaurant in Lonely Planets and Time Outs guide we decided that this would be the place where we'd eat our first meal in Ayia Napa. After eating there we were worried, cause this wasn't good at all and this was supposed to be the best fish restaurant in the city. We ordered fish soups and a seafood salad to share. The waiter had just had a speech about the fresh fish that they serve and in comes a salad with crabsticks (???), tuna from a can + shrimps that tasted absolutley nothing. It was really horrible. However, the soup was ok, but we wouldn't recommend anyone to visit this place.
