Sunday lunch is really busy, so make sure you have reservation. We had some calamari and sword fish with salad and chips. Portions are huge, better to go with empty stomach!

Have been here yesterday with some friends for lunch, it was excellent. I had grilled prawns which was very nice. We have been here before couple of times, the only change they have done is the self service salad bar, which is great.

The Melanda Beach Restaurant came highly recommended to us by friends, so we were keen to give it a try for lunch. The location is lovely, a quiet beach somewhat off the beaten track. On arrival we waited a moment or two for a member of staff to show us to a table, and although they had clearly seen us... More

Had a great lunch here yesterday with friends who live in Cyprus. Lovely fish, great view over the sea and good service. The house wine was good too. Would certainly recommend and go back on my next visit.

Our last day of the holiday was spent here and we could not asked for anything better. The restaurant is now run by the "General Manager" Andreas firmly supported by the rest of the family and this occaision three good support waiters. It was that busy! We started mid morning with a cold beer and a quiet game of cards... More

Ate here twice during our holiday. On both occasions the quality of the food was excellent. A great find - thanks to Tripadviser! Rather a bumpy track to get to the restaurant but well signposted and worth making the effort. The beach itself is lovely too. The restaurant gets very busy, especially at lunchtimes.

Lovely beach with very clear waters, good for snorkelling and beds were 2 euros, needed beach shoes as bit pebbley. Great outlook . Melanda restaurant was a... More

Melanda Bay was suggested as a good place to snorkel by Tracey from Pissouri Bay Divers and where a good fish meal could be eaten at the restaurant. We arrived at the beach quite early and as it began to fill up quickly, decided we should reserve a table for lunch at 12.30 & I’m so glad we did, as... More

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.
