A review of Latchi restaurants.
Latchi is famous in Cyprus for its fish restaurants.
Situated adjacent to the pretty fishing harbour, restaurants in Lakki, as it is otherwise known, offer the perfect place to relax and watch the world go by with a fish meze and a glass of ouzo (octopus tastes especially good with ouzo!)
Fish, like anywhere in the world, is not cheap but many restaurants have special offers on fish platters which are great value. Standards do vary between tavernas so this page aims to educate you on where to go for the best fish in town...or any other meal should you not like fish.
NB - any review is always personal so if you have a different opinion, please feel free to tell our readers by submitting a restaurant review on Cyprus Travel Secrets.
Cyprus Seafood Restaurants in Lakki
Yiangos and Peter(Y&P):
PLUS - Probably the best place to go to sample a fish meze. Fish is always fresh and cooked to perfection. Staff are excellent. Any dishes in batter like fresh calamari are light and crisp, salads are large and filled with plenty of cabbage, tomatoes, cucumber, olives and lots of feta. The most popular restaurant with local Cypriots.
MINUS - Presentation if just ordering a particular fish is not great - it will be served on its own with chips and a salad (if ordered) on the side. NOT good for vegetarian food - their veggie platter is a plate of boiled veg!
PLUS - Good value for money and extensive menu other than seafood including curry. Very popular with local expats as they give discount to regular customers! VERY good staff.
MINUS - Eating experience can be good or average depending on which chef is working! Batter on calamari can be a bit soggy if the not-so-good chef is on.
NB: Faros has now taken over the latchi fish tavern next door - a great move as the restaurant is now twice the size!
PLUS - Brand new restaurant run by the owners of Polis-based Finikas so food is good quality. Lovely tranquil decor and good choice of dishes with a different "twist" from some of the other tavernas.
MINUS More expensive than the other tavernas on the harbour.
PLUS Good for steak though not cheap. Lovely warm fire in winter.
MINUS - Service can be slow, especially if you order steak and it's frozen and they don't tell you it has to defrost first!
PLUS Good value fish meze and lovely location just outside the harbour area. Sit either inside or on the seafront.
MINUS - Some clients tell us that service is a little slow but the food is worth the wait.
This is not a complete list of all the restuarants on the harbour so if you have eaten in any of the others, please tell our visitors by adding a taverna review.
