Having numbed my taste buds on my hotels all inclusive menu, I decided to look online for something decidedly different in the Paphos district. Having read several glowing reviews for Fresh, I booked a table. Fresh is tucked away at the end of a road and therefore enjoys privacy away from the hustle and bustle found just minutes away along the main strip of Coral Bay. It's very simplistic facade doesn't give much away until you step inside. The inside seating is spacious and well decorated and the outdoor dining area very airy and the tables well spaced and immaculately presented. The area is clean and modern but feels nice and private. Fresh has an extensive wine list to suit all tastes from the casual to the connoisseur with prices to match. The menu has a wide variety, from fresh fish to duck and steak. Before your starter you are treated to some flavoured crisp breads with an advocado cheese mousse which was lovely. For my starter I chose seared Atlantic scallops on a bed of squash with crispy onions, spinach and balsamic. They went down a treat and were full of flavour and cooked just right. My main affair was the Black Angus fillet steak with black truffle shavings. This was cooked medium, was huge and truly one of the most flavoursome and tender steaks I have ever eaten. Cooked to perfection and imported from Australia, chilled and not frozen. The desserts all sounded lovely but I was full at this point. The meal was rounded off by a complementary glass of Cognac of which you had a choice of brand, which was a nice touch. Only 5 tables were occupied but the service was impeccable and our waiter Sanjay, was fantastic. Knowledgeable on the food and wine and generally a very pleasant man to talk to. The prices of this restaurant may seem high but compared to what you pay for in the overpriced tavernas along Paphos harbour, it isn't. You are paying for exceptionally high quality, fresh ingredients presented well by a very attentive staff. The Russian owner has created a real gem amongst a sea of washed out establishments and the standards at Fresh are high. I will definitely return the next time I come back to Cyprus. If you are after a unique dining experience, romantic or not, Fresh will not dissapoint you.
