Sunday lunch

Post by El tel » Wed Sep 15, 2021 6:52 am

Does anyone have any recommendations for Sunday lunch in the Peyia area ? I can think of some venues but I am looking for a picturesque setting with sea views but cannot think of anything suitable . Thank you .

I would have thought Oniros-by-the-Sea would cover all bases?

Porto Antico - similar setting to Oniros.

And can you see the sea from Vatouthkia?

I was thinking of Porto Antico when I typed it so I have no idea why I put Vathoukia 🤷🏽‍♂️

I am sure the food is excellent but looking out over a pile of rusting scrap metal would not be my cup of tea. Porto Antico perhaps. 8-)
I started off with nothing and have most of it left !

I disagree, the pile of rusting scrap metal makes an amazing backdrop for photos and we have taken many there. Amazing views. There is a constant stream of people walking over to view the wreck after they have finished their meal.

For dessert lovers like me, lol, the 'afters' are quite something else.

Happy in Cyprus , thanks for the photos , have been their a number of times over the years and it looks as if there has been more improvements , must check out the menu as I used to regard it as a tapas bar rather than a restaurant.

Ps we had a fair amount of rain in Peyia at 3.30am this morning.

Not for a moment would I describe it as a Tapas Bar. The cocktails are also to die for and they do mocktails (non-alcoholic) for kids. It's just lovely to have a meal right on the seashore and then go for a brief walk to the wreck afterwards. It's always busy, so great for people-watching too.

Oniros has expanded beyond its control of staff versus customers and its ability to provide the service people expect.we went as a party of 14 booked well in advance arrived before time were seated requested drinks and waited 25 minutes for them to be delivered. Placed our orders and a similair wait. On a positive food was very good when it finally arrived but who wants to wait over an hour for a drink and meal !!!

The ship certainly looks more like a rusted old hulk these days. She looks ready to be broken up.

Irrespective of how good the restaurant is or is not the wreck is indeed an Eyesore and should have been removed years ago, "But this is Cyprus".

If you owned one of the Villas next to it i am sure you may have a different attitude, its a rusting pile of Scrap. 8-)

My understanding is that it can't be removed without destroying the coral / seabed and that is why it remains where it is

I think you'll find the villas were built after the ship foundered, so no cause to complain if you chose to move there.

Absoulutly not some of those villas have been there a lot longer than the heap of scrap. 8-)
