4 Best Restaurants in Limassol, Cyprus

Fat Fish

$$$ Fodor's choice

In what is surely one of the most convivial atmospheres in Limassol, with a wide patio attached to the Limassol Nautical Club and overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, take your pick from an extensive menu of seafood. The set-menu lunch is always great value, but there are also a handful of catches of the day to choose from. It's the perfect locale for gawking at the scene around you—both the other enthusiastic diners, often celebrating birthdays and other special events, and the beautiful sea. Spend time perusing the fantastic wine list with over 250 labels from wineries both within Cyprus and around the world.

Ladas Fish Restaurant

$$$$ Fodor's choice

At Ladas, you will enjoy an elegant lunch and dinner in a historic carob factory sitting smack in the center of Limassol's Old Port; where the pleasant waitstaff bring you the freshest fish and seafood on offer that day. You'll always start off with a fresh Greek salad tossed tableside and a selection of dips served with warm pita, followed by an appetizer like grilled calamari with lemon, before reaching the main course of a simply prepared yet succulent fish, such as whole sea bass for two, already deboned. Ladas's sophisticated air and polished presentation provide a welcome break after a morning of shopping and strolling on Agiou Andreou, just a block away.

Ta Piatakia

$$$ Fodor's choice

Cyprus celebrity TV chef Roddy Damalis serves up small plates of Cypriot fusion cuisine—Ta Piatakia translates as "little plates"—in a lively atmosphere with festive colored tassels dangling from the soaring ceilings and a young, mainly local crowd. Sample house specialties—many featuring local products—like duck in green walnut sauce, grilled halloumi (the local Cyprus cheese) drizzled with honey, and prawn souvlaki. Round out your meal with a Cypriot wine pairing from a well-stocked upstairs cellar.
