Grape by the Sea Restaurant, Kato Pyrgos (Cyprus)

My latest discovery and I have to say, one of the coolest places on the island. First time I heard about Grape by the Sea (location here) was here and in the Lonely Planet book.

Having run out of places to take my guests too, I thought this warranted for a proper road trip, something that is almost unheard of in my last few years on the island.

Cyprus is not a huge island and in my 6 years of explorations, I’ve seen quite a bit. It was a breath of fresh air to have a sense of discovery and joy when you thought you’ve seen it all already.

If you fancy a trip here, I have to warn you – it’s quite a trek. I took us close to 2hrs from Peyia/Coral Bay area. Best is if you book it as a whole day road trip and see something on the way, or book the night in Kato Pyrgos and continue exploring the next day.

The drive from Polis towards Pomos and Kato Pyrgos area is one of the prettiest I experienced on the island. Stunning sea views all along the road, with dramatic drops and picturesque stops along the way. Best savoured in good company & cold drink in hand.

Grape by the Sea is at the edge of the village, with clear signs off the main road. We arrived mid-April only to find a handful of other guests and plenty of space for ourselves to enjoy the view. We ordered a village salad for two and a platter to share.

The salad was hands down the best I’ve had in years and same goes for the board. The freshest cheese, veggies & super delicious olives. All flushed down with a glass of local wine, while enjoying the view of the Turkish mountain peaks hiding behind the horizon.

I can only imagine what sunsets look like in a place like this.

There is a bit of shortage of photos this time as I was freezing my … off (I’m usually cold even in the heat of Cypriot summer), so I was glued to my chair, holding on tight to my sweater.

In any case, if you venture here please let me know if you liked it as much as I did!
