Description: In a beautiful scenery right in front of the picturesque Ayia Napa's Fish Harbour, a local fisherman named Vassos was inspired to create his Taverna back in 1962. At the beginning it was a coffee shop for the few local fishermen operating in the harbour. Some years later the coffee shop was transformed to a small local Fish Taverna that became the purlieu for Cypriots fish lovers especially during weekends aiming to enjoy the fresh fish caught by Vassos and was cooked traditionally by his wife Zympoullou! Today, Vassos Fish Harbour has grown to one of the biggest Fish Tavern in Cyprus accommodating 400 people at any time but remained a Fish Tavern that only servers exclusively local Cypriot fresh fish. That is the reason why it became the top hot spot for Locals and Tourists that love real fresh fish and other delicious meals always traditionally prepared. Vassos Fish Harbour restaurant is open for 365 days from 11 a.m till Midnight.

“Avoid at all costs”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

The worst restaurant I have ever experienced. We got seated and after about 20 mins we had not been asked for drinks. When we finally called them over we ordered, starters came but still no drinks. When our drinks finally arrived they had got the order wrong, it then took them 3 more attempts to get it right. The food was awful and there were 6 of us in our party and not one person had a good meal. The waiters were very rude, not a good experience at all.

“Fresh fish by the sea, nothing better to expect!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

Went there on a Saturday night on a company of 6 adults with a child of 4 years old.

Where to start and where to finish!!!

Fantastic and tasty fresh fish (really try Orfos on the grill, steamy mussels, crab fish with linguini, kalamari and sun dried octopus-very rare to find in Cyprus)

The menu is carefully chosen and serves non fish dishes as well (best steak ever had in a non steak house restaurant)

There is a children playground with a person looking after the kids therefore all 6 of us enjoyed the Company and the food.

The staff where adequate, polite and very helpful!!! It was obvious that they are experienced waiters and chef in house!!!

Big selection of wines at very good prices!!

The location is magnificent with the picturesque Ayia Napa limanaki/port laying in front of your eyes as the restaurant is situated exactly in front of the Ayia Napa Harbour!!!!!

A definitely MUST GO restaurant!!!!!!

Thank you for the great experience....Definitely will be there again soon!!!!
