“Lay back and enjoy the view”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is basically a fish tavern, although they do also some meat plates. But if you come this far you should try the fresh fish. But keep in mind that its very expensive. The view at the little harbour and the surrounding mountains, is excellent and makes the food more enjoyable from the high prices. But this prices for fish is everywhere in Cyprus. But no other place has this kind of view. And here , as far as i know, if you pay for fresh fish , that's what you get. The place looks clean and the people working there was helpful.

“Wonderful views, average food, poor service.”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

We went there for lunch, knowing that it was a bit pricey, because of the amazing views of Pomos Harbor, the blue sea and the mountains. The views are really breathtaking and the kids enjoyed a swim. I wish I could say the same for the food. This is supposedly a fish tavern and they did not have our first choice which was fresh squid! We ended up ordering the fish meze which was lacking in many ways. We had to fill up on french fries and bread. The village salad was tasteless. Our oldest son ordered a steak and specifically ordered it "well-done" - it wasn't. We asked if it came with fries and were assured that it did, but came with a few spoonfuls of rice and some boiled broccoli. The steak was rather small too. The melon offered at the end was a nice touch.
The waiter who took the order was friendly enough, but the rest of the staff were definitely untrained and uninterested.
The establishment itself is nice and clean and so were the restrooms.
Would I go there again? Well, we paid close to €80 (4 people) for poor dishes. I guess I would only go if the kids asked for it, and I know it would be for the views and the surrounding area. Definitely NOT for the food or the service!!

“Fabulous view and Fabulous fish”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

This was my second visit to this restaurant which specialises in fish and again I was pleased with the service and the food. This is not 5 star food- it is simple fresh food cooked to perfection and served with no formality. The restaurant is situated overlooking the man made harbour and well protected from the rigours of the sun. The fish is a must and well priced and sea fresh.

“nice location”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

stopped in for a quick drink and the place was beautifully kept and clean. Fantastic view of the little harbour at Pomos Point. Staff not the most welcoming but that didn't impair our enjoyment.
