i enjoyed everything, the food the view and the friendly service, although i have a feeling that it is a bit more expensive than similar restaurants in the harbor.

We visited Vassos for a late lunch on our recent trip to Ayia Napa. The location on the harbour is fabulous and the views fantastic. We found the service to be slow and not particularly friendly but the food was good and reasonably priced.

Probably the best restaurant at the harbour. We've eaten there three times already this week, having differndmt food and wine each time and all have been excellent. All the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful and take great care if you ask about allergies etc. Well worth checking out 😊

For our last meal, we capped a day of report writing, geological fieldwork and some culture (the Famagusta visitor centre) with a meal here. The staff were very efficient, magicking a table for us when none were free, friendly and cheerful. The food was delicious. Stuffed squid for me, fish risotto and a rib eye steak for my colleagues.

The restaurant is situated at the Ayia Napa Harbour. It is very picturesque. The food is good and the service is good. Although it is a fish restaurant it does give you the option of having burgers etc. It is a popular place with the locals too, so it may be advisable to book during the peak summer season.

Very pleasant evening meal. In a group of 4, we sat outside overlooking the small harbour. Highlights: an excellent rack of lamb, tasty sardines, baked aubergine with feta, chicken skewers with pitta bread and sea bream.

Great harbourside views literally sitting right amongst the boats. Fresh seafood to select from. I had parrot fish cooked to perfection and charred octopus. Sensational. These guys really know how to cook. Good range of wines and well priced. A few cats roaming around as there are in Cyprus. So they had a bit of a feed of left over... 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.
