8509 Review: The Plaice, Pissouri Village

It was a real pleasure to go along to The Plaice after being asked to do a review by its lovely owner, Steve Supple – having eaten there before and really enjoyed the food, I was only too happy to go back again!

THE PLAICE HERO

The Plaice is a fantastic, brand new Fish & Chip shop that Steve opened up in November 2015.  It is situated on the edge of Pissouri Square, in what used to be the old Chinese restaurant (just along from Sparti Bar and opposite the Sultana Bar).  It has inside seating, as well as limited outside seating, and is decorated really beautifully with marine-boutique decor which makes for a really refreshing dining experience.

Steve, a chef by trade, brought over traditional range of fish & chip fryers from the UK in order to support his passion to provide real, proper fish & chips to the village.  Along with the standard fish & chip shop menu (you can expect all of your favourites, cod, haddock, scampi, battered sausage, pies and more) there is also an extensive breakfast menu, a light lunch option, daily specials and a mouth-watering a la carte menu – so even if your whole party doesn’t fancy fish & chips you certainly wont be stuck for options!

Louise kindly came along for dinner with me, alongside her two gorgeous daughters Brooke & Belle (who, like me and Louise, were also very keen to eat there).  I thought it fitting to review The Plaice on their cod & chips, Louise ordered a chicken & mushroom pie and both girls had their favourite – battered sausage and chips.  We were sat down by Michaelis, Steve’s business partner, a lovely local from Pissouri whos parents own a restaurant in the village, so he has grown up in the hospitality industry; and it shows.  Michaelis was very attentive the whole time we were there, after all, catering for 4 women is never an easy ride!

The decor in The Plaice never disappoints me, I love sitting in the restaurant looking at the collection of marine pieces that make the restaurant really unique, it really adds to the experience and The Plaice_5certainly helps with the anticipation of ordering a real treat fish & chips.  As we waited for our main meal Michaelis brought us over some home made garlic bread with hummus, yum! Then the food arrives, and it’s apparent that the quality of ingredients used and the care that has gone into the preparation is on your plate – the batter is delicious, the fish is lovely and the home made chips are the best. Brooke was very sweet and, taking her newly acquired role as food critique pretty seriously, burst out that ‘the chips are my favourite part – they are so crunchy and delicious’! Louise also thoroughly enjoyed her home made chicken and mushroom pie; there wasn’t one grumble between the 4 of us.  We didn’t indulge in desert, but had I had room then I would have definitely tried the creme brulee.

We asked Steve to tell us a bit more about himself and the restaurant, read his interview here.
