Having spent the day looking up old haunts in Limassol, we travelled back to Pissouri and arrived at the Vine Leaf hot and hungry. It was around 4pm so the restaurant was fairly empty. The hospitality shown by staff, especially Carlos was great.
The food was really good, excellent village salad, a huge portion of swordfish steak and all the food was well cooked. The fish and chicken succulent, not dry as in other restaurants we have tried.
The service is warm, friendly, and unhurried, and Carlos was sitting down with customers to discuss food and the local area when people were seeking advice.
Speaking with Athos and Carlos, they are keen to offer customers typical Cypriot food, simple dishes but with good quality fresh ingredients, cooked well, which are tasty.
The Vine Leaf is definitely well worth a visit, there are no pretensions around this restaurant unlike some in the area, they give you the genuine impression that they want you to enjoy visiting their restaurant and trying their food.

I travelled to Pissouri with my 1 year old son, my partner and some friends. The Vine Leaf was not far from the villa we were renting, so on our first night, after travelling all day, we thought we'd give it a try. And im so glad we did. Makes a nice change to be welcomed in to a place by such humble, normal people. (No dragging you in, as is the norm in a lot of places)
We had such a lovely experience at this restaurant, polite, friendly, efficient. And the food was lovely. Village salad i miss you :-(
Nothing was too much for Carlos, such a lovely guy.
We ate at the Vine Leaf a few times throughout our 2 week stay, and we also got some food to take away.
This was the best restaurant we ate in, we will definitely be returning to Pissouri, and first stop will be the vine leaf.

Visited the vineleaf a few days ago for the first time and i have to say its by far the best taverna we have visited in cyprus,we ordered the fish meze for two and honestly you could have fed the whole village aswell!!The salad with all the dips were amazing and we felt quite full just with that!Then about 15 different fishes arrived all of them top top quality especially the calamari sea bream and octapus.When we finished our beautiful meze we received complimentary coffees and fruits from carlos the head waiter who is absolutely fantastic and nothing is too much trouble for him.Even the chef david who i think might be carlos brother came out to ask us if we enjoyed our meal,absolutely fantastic chef.Overall this is by far one of the greatest dining experiences we have ever received.HIGHLY HIGHLY RECCOMENDED

If you want authentic greek food and amazing service then this is the place to go. We headed to the vine leaf on our first night in Pissouri and were not disappointed. The food was delicious and authentic. The portions were huge and all very reasonably priced. As for the service it was the best I have had in a long time!
Carlos the waiter there, made us feel so at home and went the extra mile in everything he did for us. His lovely hopsitality along with the yummy food means that I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting a good night out in Pissouri. I would recommend the Calamari. The best I've ever had!
