I first went to the Melanda Beach Restaurant when I lived and worked in Cyprus back in the late 90s early 2000s. After 16 years away from the island we visited the restaurant again. Makis the owner and his wife still run the restaurant with their now grown up kids. The food is wonderful (lots of fish) and the setting,... More

We found this place a number of years ago. Fish is always fresh and always a good selection. Breakfasts are just great. On Sunday they always put on Kleftiko and just 13 euros.

Have just had a day in Limassol and took the old coast rod back to Paphos, stopping off at the Melinda Restuarant for lunch. The staff were friendly and helpful, the food was excellent and the prices very reasonable. The location is perfect, do go you will be pleased.

Well, we go quite often to eat out in many different places of the world, but this was a real jewel. EVERYTHING was perfect and I don't exaggerate (I'm usually the critical customer).

Looking to update your must-eat-at list ? Check out this gorgeous beach-side restaurant. We have eaten there several times, the atmosphere, food and wine make this a must visit restaurant. Great food and good service too. Great fish, and other dishes too. The bay itself is stunning and great for snorkelling, swimming or just relaxing. Will definitely be going back.

Description
Melanda is a "whitebait heaven". A hidden gem "stuck" in the middle of nowhere but worth the bumpy road.
Our family has the Melanda restaurant for almost 35 years father to son... The fresh fish is our identity. A small fish boat is bringing to us every morning fresh fish to satisfy our customers.
Andreas Tsiolos is the beginner of the Melanda restaurant since 1980, starting a small restaurant in Avdimou bay having only the british force as customers. The restaurant is now operated by Tsiolos team {Makis, Maria and their children Ifigeneia, Andreas and Aggelos}.
Approximately half way between Limassol and Paphos. Take exit 38 of the highway of Avdimou,Prastio and Pachna, drive towards the sea and follow the signs to Melanda. The restaurant is closed between November 30 and march 10.
OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK FROM 09:00 UNTIL 10:00(MONDAY CLOSE AFTER 17:00)
