Pleasant surprise

I was pleasantly surprised with Fresh. I had been meaning to try it for a long time. The food was excellent and the service efficient and helpful.
I had the Scottish salmon which was presented well and tasted delicious.
The restaurant was well decorated with good attention to detail.
The evening was a great success and Yes, I would recommend it.
The wine was pricey but the local dry white wine was from a small vineyard and was fine.

Deserves Recognition

First, all the positives. The service was excellent - friendly and efficient, our meal was very good indeed and the under cover, outdoor ambience, beautiful & relaxing. An interesting note is that they also had a children's menu - unusual for a restaurant of this quality. There is plenty of parking space.

The Mediterranean/Italian menu is extensive. The complementary creamy, mixed cheese with pesto, and crispy flat bread was excellent. We then had the Grilled Calamari with Chilli sauce and the Aubergine cheese bake for starters followed by a Rack of Lamb with roast potatoes and Tiger Prawns with a Peri Peri sauce and Pesto Rice. Both came with vegetables. The medium rare lamb was absolutely outstanding and the Tiger Prawns more than filling. These were followed by desserts - a rather creamy, but delicious Tiramisu and a lovely Affogato with Amaretto. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole meal. The wine list was good if fairly expensive.

Just a couple of 'negatives'. The location is rather out of the way if you don't know the area well. Tucked away at the far end of the Coral Bay 'strip' it is partially hidden behind the Frog & Toad pub and from the outside it is less than inspiring. Equally the name 'FRESH' is a little off-putting- it sounds more like a fruit and veg market than what it actually is, a classy restaurant!

However, DON'T let any of this put you off. Once inside (or outside in the delightful garden) everything changes and it's well worth a visit. We shall be returning, quite possibly with our grandchildren next week.

strong local contender

This venue is top quality, not so much space/room in the well-furnished and finished inside area, but in the summer I can imagine the outside area under the vine will be an enjoyable experience. Appetite whet by the inoffensive prawn salad, then perfectly cooked salmon on a 'bed' of smashed onion & potato, was excellent. Then I took on the strawberry panna cotta and it was a beaut that was savoured! Very attentive and polite staff. Certainly not the least expensive place in the area, but I think they have a very strong package. From €30/head (shared start & dessert, one drink) it is possibly bordering on special occasion status, although i hear they are introducing a €10 fixed menu. Must try it.

Fresh Coral Bay

Visited Fresh for the first time, having heard some good things. The decor and welcome was first class. We had Foie Gras as a starter, and I'm glad we shared it as it was more than enough for two. Then my partner had rack of lamb and I had Angus Fillet steak. Both were cooked to perfection, so tender and tasty. We then shared the "Strawberry Eton mess" a dish comprising of meringue, chantilly cream with a strawberry coulis, delicous! The wine list was extensive, the service was excellentt, and whilst this is by no means an inexpensive restaurant, the quality of food, service etc was worth every cent, and having lived here for nearly ten years, this is without doubt, the finest restaurant we have been to in Cyprus.

Lovely Venue, Food Disappointing - Service ?

We went here a few weeks ago for a 'nice' meal out. A friend has told us it was really good so we knew it was relatively expensive, but thought we would give it a go.

The wine list was not cheap, but there were some oversea wines that were reasonably priced given the vineyard and country. Everything started off well and we were looking forward to a lovely evening. The starter arrived and it was good... lacked a little flavour, but then we like strong flavours so decided that sublity was the Chef's approach. Then my husbands main course arrived, mine did not... (I had ordered a starter as a main) it basically just went downhill from there. It was evident they had forgotten to cook my 'main' course, by the time it arrived my hisbands was cold, they did offer to redo his, but this could have gone on all night. My 'mains' was not good, the pancake was what I can only describe as the first one you get out of the pan, the beef filling was chewy, tastleless and looking back I should have just sent it back to the kitchen. My husbands meal of Monkfish & Scallops was also disappointing, but then it was cold! We had one dessert to share which was good, but when we asked for the bill it was given to us with a statement that the dessert(S) were on the house for the mishap earlier.... we only had one and it cost 3.95. With a bill of Euro 90 for one three course and two starters a bottle of wine and two glasses of wine and a bottle of water I doubt we would go back.

Staff were very friendly and welcoming but too many of them kept coming to the table doubling up on questions, actions etc... nice to be attentive but don't overkill...
