Great food, great service and a family atmosphere. One of the best restaurants we visited in Cyprus. Stunning views of the beach, sea and traditional fishing boats. Food is excellent and very fresh.

Description
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)
