Pork chop at Nissiotis

October 28, 2019

A trip to Larnaca, then on return Intercity bus to Ayia Napa, change to local bus, alight at Protaras and walk along the seafront to Nissiotis.

Did I wish for moussaka? No, today I would try pork chop.

Succulent and tasty though a little tough.

Red wine, a second red wine, followed by cocktail with the bill.

Nissiotis is in a quiet locatioon overlooking Protaras Pier. Unlike other restaurants in Protaras it has not engaged in a race to the bottom with all-inclusive hotels, a race no one can win, one of the few places in Protaras worth eating.

In recent years quality of food served in Protaras has fallen, many restaurants gone under, all in a race to the bottom to compete with all-inclusive hotels.

One of the rare exceptions serving quality without having to go out of Protaras is Nissiotis.

I chose moussaka, served in a clay pot with a second bowl of Greek salad.

Portion size generous, my only criticism too generous, sufficient to share with a friend.

My only other criticism, poor choice of beer. But this is true of everywhere in Protaras.

The restaurant was almost empty. One of many casualties of all-inclusive hotels, which are killing the local economy, killing the tourist economy. And as with everywhere, Nissiotis hit by the collapse of Thomas Cook.
