Sea bream at Spartiatis fish restaurant

Spartiatis is a fish restaurant overlooking Konnos Bay, not that can see anything at night.

Walk down an unlit road, passed a run down block that appears to be inhabited by gypsies.

I paid a visit last night.

I ordered sea bream, fresh caught every day, or so I was assured.

First I was brought bread in a basket, thinly sliced courgettes and what looked like chips.

Both tasted ok, but it seemed odd to bring vegetables first then wait until main dish arrived, or eat now?

It turned out was a starter, which I only realised when main dish was brought, sea bream with a small salad and a side plate of chips.

What I thought was chips was not. What it was I do not know.

Sea bream was excellent, the chips not so.

A quiet location, no music.

Only half a dozen tables, if that, the new norm with the tourist industry collapsing, made worse by all-inclusive hotels which attracts the dregs of the tourist industry, drives away the quality tourists and no money flows into the local economy.

As I was leaving, I queried the sad state of affairs, the lack of diners. They told me it was like this every night weekdays.

I was tempted to hop on a bus into Protaras for an ice cream at either Café Amárena or Patisserie Amelie, but decided on yoghurt from nearby shop, then no too tired.

Try Papa’s fish and chips (a fish restaurant)  or Kamasias. Both are in Paralimni

Or during the day, Demetrion at Liopetri River.

The place to not eat, Ocean Basket, the McDonald’s or KFC of seafood, the fish not fresh.
