We haven't been to the Gourmet Taverna for quite some time but took friends there yesterday for lunch. We sat outside and it was lovely. The waiter was very pleasant and friendly and the owner brought some local mushrooms he'd gathered himself and grilled some for us to try. The menu is a clever mix of Cypriot and Italian dishes....

Well it's the 23rd December in Paphos and after meeting friends in a local café we decided, rather than eat in, to look for a local restaurant to celebrate a birthday. On the recommendation of friends in the summer we decided to try Gourmet Taverna, a restaurant we have passed on many occasions. Because this was a once as year... More

We love this restaurant - the food is always excellent and the service impeccable. Savvas and his brothers know how to run a 5* restaurant and it shows. On our last visit, I had the meat balls in tomato sauce (a greek dish I can't pronounce/spell) and my husband had the mushrooms to start and the seafood risotto for main.... More

Service was exemplary, food was delicious. Had heard about this restaurant and decided to give it a try out of season. We were not disappointed. Will definitely go back.

We ate here during a holiday in Paphos in October. We chose it because of its location and the menu which promoted local produce. The complimentary starter was a nice gesture but the fish soup was too lemony and the bread tasted quite strongly of aniseed. We just ordered mains. The suckling pig was a generous portion as was the... More

Great food, really great!!! Best Risotto this side of Italy, excellent service and lovely staff, especially Andy the waiter and the chef was brilliant would definitely return. Prices not too high et 13 euros for a decent main course and set in the middle of the town.

WE found this place while walking into Paphos for the evening and it turns out it's our friends (who live there) favourite place too! It's a nice place to eat and watch the world go by with a cold glass of Rose or a Keo. The food is freshly prepared and I personally recommend the meatballs...yum. You must also try... More

Lovely place to eat. It was slightly off the main 'drag' and we weren't beckoned in by the staff - it was recommended to us by some friends and it did not disappoint. Staff very attentive and food excellent. The Gourmet Meze was fantastic and the wine recommendation by the waiter was spot on.

We visited the Gourmet Taverna whilst on holiday in Paphos. We had the fillet steak and it was honestly one of the best meals I have ever eaten. The restaurant is family run and you definitely feel looked after. Excellent choice of wines too and a really good environment. You must visit this restaurant!
