There's never a shortage of things to do in Cyprus.
Here are just a few activites that are available in the local area.
With countless restaurants in Pissouri and many more in Paphos it can be tricky to find out which restaurants are the best around. Below are some of our favorites that we have come to know and love. From traditional Tavern’s and fine dining Mediterranean restaurants to the essential British, fish and chip’s takeaway!
Restaurants in PissouriPissouri Square Tavern

Greek Night in Pissouri
Occurring every Wednesday throughout the summer, visiting this event is a must for any tourist! Located in the charming Pissouri main square, you will be treated to some special Greek hospitality with buffet food available from all 3 restaurants and traditional Greek dancers. The evening is packed with good food, great entertainment and plenty of laughs! This event always sells out so make sure you book with one of the restaurants in advance.
Possibly the most picturesque restaurant we have visited in Cyprus. This quirky little tavern is located just off the main square and offers a stress free environment to enjoy a soothing evening. High quality, fresh Greek food is served but be aware of the giant pork chops! Delicious but not for the faint-hearted!
Village Square, Pissouri Village, Limassol, Cyprus
Limanaki Restaurant (Pissouri Bay)
For that extra special evening this has to be our favorite restaurant! With incredible ‘Mediterranean fusion’ food and a personal service from the owner we never fail to have an enjoyable night whenever we visit.

Pizzeria and Chinese Take-away
Although we all enjoy eating out on holiday, sometimes a quiet night in relaxing around the pool with a take-away cannot be beaten. Pissouri offers both a pizzeria and Chinese takeaway and both are come highly recommended!
Restaurants in Mandria and KoukliaMandria Fish and Chips
When first told to visit this traditional British restaurant we were very skeptical of their slogan ‘the best fish & chips in Cyprus’ but we were wrong! Great value to money and definitely worth a visit!

Located in the village, Kouklia this little village retains that traditional Cypriot feel. This small, family run restaurant offers freshly made Cypriot food and is well priced. Ideal to experience a famous Greek meze!

Restaurants in PaphosRimini’s
This is another one of our favorites. It's an Italian restaurant located at the far end of Paphos just past the Aloe Hotel, and is well worth a visit. The owner Panicos will instantly become your best friend with his witty charm and his famous catchphrase, “NO PANIC, PANIC IS HERE!” The food and the choice are excellent and, in our opinion, is amongst the best in Paphos.
