The location and atmosphere of this restaurant is perfect for a fish restaurant. Next to the fishing boats with a scenic view over the harbour playing traditional music. The people working there are very serviceminded and genuine. The food was very good, fresh and home made. This is a restaurant where you can be sure to get the best fish... More

We selected to eat here after a tour round the several restaurants in this harbour, as it seemed to offer a good selection of fresh fish, not just the fried meze we had tried and disliked on an earlier evening. We had humus and olives to start with swordfish to follow. We were halfway through the starter when the swordfish... More

A great place to be and enjoy your meal any time of the day, just near the sea, excellent fish dishes, never tasted anything else, although the menu offers also... More

Vassos Fish Tavern at Agia Napa Plates look impressive but the fish quality and the price is way beyond what you get. If you have no idea what is Fresh fish then it is OK. Presentation is good. But if you know about fish and you like to get fresh fish at a reasonable price, keep away !!!!

We ordered a fish meze. After we had finished with appetizers, we had to wait for another 40 minutes for the waiter to bring the next course, which he only did after a reminder. After that,my wife pointed out to me that they failed to deliver at least 3 other dishes from the meze set. We had waited politely another... More

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.
