Great FRESH fish!

Tried this last night as I had a craving for Kalamari - I wasn't disappointed.

It was absolutely delicious and very fresh, and was accompanied by home made chips, salad and a seafood rice dish (not quite a risotto) which I could have eaten on it's own very happily!

The restaurant is traditionally decorated and nice and clean, staff friendly (although one waiter was engrossed in his soap opera and it seemed a shame to disturb him)! Toilets are clean too and seem very new, but upstairs which could be a problem for some.

My bf had soupis (inkfish) which I'm not a fan of which he said was delicious too. I noticed that the fish meze is €19 pp and consists of a comprehensive selection of goodies.

The kalamari and soupis were €10 each, and including grilled village bread with olive oil, a village salad with all the dips as a starter, a Carlsberg, a glass of wine and a large water the bill was a reasonable €35 incl tip.

It's good to know you can get fresh fish in Paphos at a good price in a traditional taverna that's not touristy with prices to match.

Suprisingly good Fish meze

On 'Mr Chicken' road. Tyrimos stands out as one of the best restaurants there. It is easily noticed that on a weekend it is hard to find parking close by, because all of the local Cypriots have come for a fish meze. And taking their lead, you won't be disappointed.

Usually not being a fan of the fish meze, I was pleasantly surprised with the number and quality of dishes. My brother had a juicy tsipoura for himself, which he kindly traded for some Calamari, which was equally as good.

The service is by no means top notch but seems to be duly reflected in the price.

If not wanting to go to a seaside fish restaurant and are staying in Kato Paphos - or are enroute to Kato Paphos - I would recommend going on the weekends, as during the week it seems very empty considering the amount of tables.

First class Fish

Went here for lunch at the end of april and i had the red snapper which was first class and perfectly cooked.My other half had chicken as she doesnt eat fish and she was delighted with her meal.our two friends also had lovely fish meals.Service was good and there were a lot of locals eating(always a good sign)Prices were reasonable.The salad was not as good as the one i had at Othellos the night before.The last time i ate here was over a year ago and looking at the reviews it looks as if it went downhill and hopefully is on its way up again!

Service still dour , but Meze beter than before

I was told by some friends that they had had a few problems with staff, don't know how true this is. But went with said friends just a week ago.
4 for meze, which would have easily fed 6, we run out of the grilled bread with garlic and olive oil, it seems they will top that up! We had 2 or 3 round of drinks (Large Keos, glasses of wine) and bill came to 91euros. The food was better, looks like they do have a new chef, they still do crab sticks, but apparently the locals love them (yuk!), now getting little fish dimsum which we all enjoyed (just a couple each), some of the waiters were dour, but we were quickly served and even got a joke out of one of them. Actually better than before, taking the advice about the 10, but could only have been better if it was free and served by Billy Connolly.
It was reasonably busy, maybe the trick is to order meze.

poor Service

I couldn't help but agree with the previous report, we went to Tyrimos regularly and always found the food very good but last time some months back we had the meal from hell. When the waiter finally arrived with the menus we were left for 15 mins before an order was taken, this should have warned us it was going to be a long night. After we had arrived a number of locals came in and they got all the service, after about another 40 minutes we asked about our order, it eventually turned up 15 more minutes later and tossed on the table by the waiter. My wife had a crab which hadn't been cooked as ordered, but by this time we were both fed up paid up and left, without doubt the worst restaurant service we've had in Cyprus. Avoid!!
