Best restaurants in Limassol


Many believe that good restaurants exist in Limassol’s tourist area, however they cannot easily be spotted. In most countries, in areas intended for foreign visitors, you can hardly find a traditional restaurant for local residents. Obviously that is not the case in the mountain taverns which offer the best Cypriot dishes. We’d better tell you about the restaurants in Limassol, which, in our opinion, deserve attention and offer visitors an exquisite taste from cuisines all around the world.

The Japanese and Chinese cuisines in Limassol

In this restaurant segment are the undisputed leaders of the Up-Town Square group: a Japanese restaurant and a Chinese restaurant, Zen, Chi Lounge. These places are popular among the locals. It’s not that the group restaurants in Up-Town Square differ in price, but the quality of food and level of service are well worth it.

Particularly noteworthy are the traditional rolls and sashimi in Zen restaurant: the Royal Daikon roll (15 euros per 6 pieces) – the king crab and avocado with daikon – and the Chutoro (13 euros) –the blue fin tuna sashimi and makimono Unagi Make (small Roll with eel -10 euros per 6 pieces).

The Chinese restaurant Chi Lounge is under the careful supervision of Chef Yip Leong. His many years of experience in leading hotels and restaurants, as well as his incredible professionalism make it possible to create truly unique dishes that seem to be transported over to your table from restaurants in Beijing and Hong Kong.

You can order food, just by touching the picture in front of you. In addition, Oshi has something to keep children occupied as well. In addition to the menus and the other required for ordering facilities built into the system, a large collection of games for the children is also integrated.



Fish restaurants in Limassol

Among Limassol’s fish restaurants our absolute favorites are the Sailor’s Rest at the St. Raphael Hotel and the fish tavern Limanaki at the Amathus Hotel.

The main feature of the Sailor’s Rest restaurant is the incredibly romantic ambience and magnificent views of the harbor and the open Mediterranean Sea! Especially popular among the guests of the restaurant is the assorted seafood Fruit de Mer Platter (95 euros): lobster and oysters, tiger shrimps and langoustines, squid and Atlantic crab – all different and unique in taste. This course will be the undisputed favorite for a romantic meal.

On the other hand, the fish tavern Limanaki serves a three-tier platter of the freshest seafood! The jewel of the crown is the Alaskan crab dish with two sauces. It is pre-cut by the tavern’s professional chefs – you only have to remove the tender meat and enjoy its unique taste.

The lower tier of this dish is carefully stacked with magnificent large oysters with vinegar and shallots. The middle layer consists of huge prawns and mollusks shells. Separately, you will be served mussels poached in an aromatic sauce with herbs.
