Deceptive

Don't be fooled when you walk in. It may look basic but it is far from it. It is a Cypriot village feel to it. You are immediately made welcome in this family run restaurant and the food is excellent and reasonably priced. Definitely worth a visit.

The restaurant is run by a lovely and welcoming family, who serve the most amazing authentic greek food. It is unfortunate that not many people seem to know about it, since every time I have been whether it is with my family or significant other I have had a delicious meal in a lovely atmosphere. Would recommend the meze, the... More

It was a big friendly oasis with perfect food, big portions and really great owners. My best recommendations are to "krasata" with lemonade. Ask for bergamot jam!

Authentic food served by a very proud owner siting under delicious vines of grapes. Food is to die for and you may well do if you try to eat the super large portions so beautifully plated out for your delight. Keeps luring me back for more meals every time we visit the island

If you want real home cooked food, eating under the spreading vines on a pergola in a peaceful setting, then this is the restaurant for you. It is on the outskirts of Paphos, passed the tomes of the Kings (and just passed Lidyl). It's been there for many years now. The Kannavias family grow their own vegetables and fruit, pick... More

Having a Timeshare close by we recently decided to pay it a visit especially as there had been so many good reviews. We decided to have the Meze at Euro 16 each with there being a warning on the menu that you need to be hungry to try it, and so it proved. We started with a salad accompanied by... More

We enjoyed everything that was served to us! Fresh, homemade style food! I loved the olive platters, moussaka, taramosalata and the rest. Recommended :)

We paid our second visit to the Melania, the first was 3 years ago but at least we got a meal then. This time, the order was completely messed up, I got my starter late and the salmon we ordered, recommended as a special because the fisherman had just delivered it to the restaurant, had not been ordered until we...

We went here for dinner with high expectations. We ordered olive pate and tzatziki with pitta breads, we waited and waited for the pitta breads and I eventually asked if they could be brought. We ordered fresh salmon, house salad and chips for main, guess what? They forgot to bring the salmon. Again I reminded them and within 10 minutes... More
