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

We have been visiting the restaurant for 24 years and the food has always been excellent. It seems to be suffering from a lack of visitors (not their fault) and so the prices have risen quite a lot. However there is always plenty of food. There was however a problem with the card machine!

It doesn't get any better than this folks!! Don't leave Paphos without having a meal at Melania. Matheos is a gracious host, full of life, smiles and ancient stories of the island's history. His wife Elly cooks all the meals herself, all fresh, home made and home grown. This is Cypriot hospitality at it's best. We have been going there... More
