Finally visited after 3 years of coming to the isle, and this restaurant is literally just 5 mins down the road from where we stay. The reason it's taken so long is because my Dad likes what he likes and that's it. He will never try new food for fear of not liking it. Well, this fear so left him... More

Doesn't look much from outside & there can be nights when it's not very busy, but step under the vines & you're transported to original Cyprus. The food is amazing, all cooked by Elli while her husband Mattheos & son Georges are providing excellent service. If you haven't tried it, then do, you certainly won't regret it. The home grown...

Don't be put off if you are the first customers, this place is the best place to eat in Paphos. I've eaten here every time time I'm in Paphos and it never fails to live up to the last visit. The kleftico is the best on the island, stifardo the same. Try it, you will not be disappointed.

During our time in Paphos, this is the best restaurant and meal we had whilst we were there. The food was amazing, all home grown or locally sourced and you get to eat outside under amazing grape vines. This is a must try if you are in Paphos and we would defo return.

2nd time to Cyprus, 2nd time to Melania. Thoroughly recommend the Mezze - which we ate at my brothers wedding reception there. George is particularly lovely and provides excellent service, complimenting their delicious food.

We have been visiting the Melania restaurant for over 13 years and continue to return due to the high quality of the food, all of which is locally sourced, and the warm welcome from Mattheos and family. The moussaka is a particular favourite with my husband. Keep up the good work.

Once again visited this restaurant who usually closes on a Sunday but opened especially for us as we had just arrived in Cyprus. The family run restaurant is so traditional - all the food is fresh and a lot of it organic as is the local wine. The meze just keeps coming and coming - excellent value for the money.... More

My hubby and I stopped her by chance when on holiday a few weeks ago. We had hired a buggy and were looking for somewhere to stop for lunch. What a find! It's a large restaurant but at 3pm we were the only people in there - but the friendly atmosphere and wonderful welcome was the same had they been... More
