Lovely setting by the harbour and freshly caught fish - you can't go wrong. I ordered the whole sea bass and it was divine. Even the local cats had their eyes on it which was hilarious! Friendly staff... all in all, a great meal.

Good customer service. Great seafood dishes. Sashimi was good quality. Prices were reasonable. Front row view of the marina. You can see people go paragliding and other boats docking. Good place to people watch during the day. Free Wifi.

Portions are generous and the seafood seem to be really fresh. The variety of dishes in the menu is huge. Would definitely recommend to share a salad. Excellent service and peaceful outdoor seating area facing the marina.

This restaurant has been around for many years - see photo with story. It has done so well because the food is so good - fresh prawns were amazing and I loved my pork chop - the view is picture postcard perfect as you are in the harbor and watching all the activities. Highly recommended and not just for the... More

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.
