Potamos Fish Restaurant, Liopetri
You couldn’t find a more perfect setting to eat fish! It’s right on the coast of Liopetri, making their well-earned name through the delicious freshness of the food they serve, and the friendly, professional manner in which they welcome their customers. With over 50 years experience, the third generation Antonis and Margarita are following in the footsteps of their parents and grandfather Nicolas, who opened this delightful beach side location in Potamos so all the local fishermen could enjoy their day’s catch, and they still do.
Its a quaint setting, with the restaurant overlooking the moorings on the mouth of the Liopetri River aka ‘Potamos’, with stunnimg views stretching all the way to Cape Greko. Comfortable inside with outdoor seating for 150 diners. It’s a great place for all the family who want to get away from the maddening crowds and more commercial side of Cyprus. You’ll feel like you’re back in the old Cyprus, enjoying your meal at an authentic Cypriot Fish restaurant.
They offer a great choice of hot and cold starters including home made dips like the delicious Hummus, Taramasalata, Tzatsiki, Tahini, or if you can’t choose go for the Platter of cold starters, or if you fancy something hot, Grilled Halloumi or Lountza or my fav, the Prawn or Mussels Saganaki, mmm ! Or one of their specialities, the yummy Fish Soup, a recipe created by their granny and delicious in the summer and even better on those chilly coastal Winter evenings.
From your traditional Village Salad to a amazing Seafood Salad whatever you choose I guarantee you’ll love !
