Hi, just wondering if anyone has any recommendations of good restaurants within the Larnaca area (centre Larnaca if possible). Any type of restaurant (greek, italian, mexican, chinese etc) would be great.
A good Greek restaurant we like is mellitses (spl?) just further up past the fort in Larnaca itself, towards mackenzie, along the sea front.
The meat cooked in traditional ovens with the potatoes, just falls off the bone and is lovely. You can easily walk from Larnaca town.
Stone grill is good for steaks. It is in the town centre not far from where the saturday fruit and veg market is held, sorry not sure of actual street name.
Ban Thai is also very nice, but more expensive (side street towards fort end of Larnaca.
My Son and partner have said the chinese retaurant on the front in Larnaca towards the fort with Large gold Buddha outside (well it was there last time we visited ! is one of the best chinese meals they have eaten. Have not tried that one myself though as My Husband cannot eat Chinese.
At the other end of the sea front towards the marina end is Hobos steak house. We usually like to eat upstairs and they have an outside balcony area . You go up in the lift for the up stairs restaurant.
Another place we have enjoed is the Art Cafe. A wine bar downstairs and Quirky arty restaurant upstairs. The menu choice is quite small but always enjoyable ,also home cooked with traditional greek dishes. We have always found the owners to be very friendly and helpful particularly if you have any special dietary needs.
To get to the Art Cafe you need to walk along the sea front towards Marina end, turn left at Sun Hall Hotel and cross the road. The art cafe is on the right hand side of the little street opposite. I am sorry I have not got more detail of road name.
Hope you find something to suit you which I am sure you will as there are lots ,with new ones appearing each time we visit. marian
Fiona I wouldn't bother with any around the Finnikothes area....head past Meliges towards Mackenzie the first restaurant on your right as soon as you get to the end of the road before Varoshiotis fish tavern......Pariasiko piado which means traditional plate...Best Fish meze....steaks....etc best prices...the same guy who owns Charmers...try you wont be disappointed
By far the best place for fish (they have non-fish, as well) is Zephyros on the LH side going from the fort to Mackenzie, by the fishing harbour (opposite immigration). Try the Sea Bass, it is exquisite, served with a lemon/virgin olive oil sauce, with your chips on a separate plate. They must have at least a dozen kinds of freshly-caught fish.
A good Italian (an offshoot of Pizza Express) is Marzano, on Makarios Avenue III, opposite Larnaca Police Station. Pizza, Pasta, Salads, Meat & Fish dishes, drinks are reasonable, and on Friday night a live trio.
