If your traditional Greek taverna went clubbing, this is what it would look like. The decor is all white, with disco balls and Greek pop music. You can sit inside or outside, and you have a view of the sea. They also have a daytime bar/lounge with Miami-esque white couches and beds.
The food was tasty and not overpriced. You should definitely order the fries - they are seasoned with MAGIC and are delicious!
I would go again. Even the bathrooms are gorgeous.
Pros:Fun, Tasty, Good Greek Music
Alati by the Sea is a multi-use, multi-time-of-day establishment in the Pernera area of Protaras. It combines a restaurant, bar and big grass lawn.
This review is of dinner in September 2010.
Overall, Alati by the Sea has a relatively standard fish taverna menu but offered in an environment that is much more modern (dance music, vaguely South Beach furnishings) than the typical tavern.
It is run with a Greek (not Cypriot) accent on the food which really on shows up in narcissism of small differences (no tahini; tzantziki-not talatouri; etc).
Our group had barbouni (red mullet), tsipoura (gilted sea bream) and pork souvlaki. Overall, all the food was good and reasonable execution of what are fish tavern basics (tsipoura, red mullet).
The one standout item were the seasoned french fries which is the first time in a long time that I have had fries at a Cypriot restaurant that were actually tasty and not just bland slices of potato.
Atmosphere was fun and upbeat and a nice change from the rustic feel of the typical establishment of this type. As usual, on Saturday night it was packed - reservations are a good idea at peak times.
Service was friendly but bordering on slow.
Pictures of the night can be found in the photos section of this profile.
Overall: Food was a 4/5; atmosphere a 5/5. Since it is a restaurant, food will determine the score.
Pros:Nice update of the fish tavern
Cons:Nothing in particular
