A nice cafe a bit away from the beaches, very tasty coffees, and you can try the Socca, too, which may not be any of the Nicosian culinary highlights, but surely worth a try.

My boyfriend and I went because it was recommended to us. We spoke English but my boyfriend is French. Once again (as it's common in many restaurants) the attitude of the staff when hearing a foreign language was a shame. This restaurant is a total tourist trap! The waiters were extremely unprofessional, yawning, cursing in front of patrons, using their... More

A simple concept fresh sea food served with minimal cooking. We ate twice at the same week, my friend had a lobster and I ordered the Jumbo Shrimp. The second meal we had fish soup. It is a lovely place, in Garibaldi square.

Raw oysters with fresh lemon and cocktail sauce (heavy on horseradish) is my favorite. Here you can try very good ones!

Have been coming here for the last 10 years. We like the simple atmosphere and the quality of the seafood. However prices are getting steeper especially since there is a new ownership.the langoustines used to be about 16 euro for 12.... Now they are up to 32... Getting a little pricey.

Well known café, famous for its seafood and position on the corner of Pl Garibaldi. During the day it's noisy, suffering from cars, trucks, buses, trams and constant pedestrian traffic. Food underwhelms, as it's consistently average and priced at a premium. Worth going once just to tick this almost essential icon off your Nice bucket list,

The oysters here are fantastic, especially the 'specials' no.1. They turn over so many that they're spanking fresh and nicely shucked. The clams are great too. The rest of the platter was ok - cooked prawns, whelks, shrimps and winkles were nice enough without being super fresh, whereas a portion of frites were surprisingly good. The crab is small and...
