Avoid this restaurant! Me and my family decided to try this restaurant out, since we had seen many positive reviews of this place. WHAT a letdown. We arrived and got a table in the corner of the restaurant but we weren't happy with that place, so we got moved outside. For some reason the waiter started speaking Russian with us,... More

It has become our favourite restaurant and Paphos can be proud of such a... More

The food here is ok. The suckling pig comes on the bone and is delicious. However, the mash it came with was lumpy and the veg dry and slightly burnt. It was nice to be given complimentary bread and soup. The service here is on the slow side and the imported wines on the wine list were not available. At... More

We came across this restaurant in the last week of our holiday. The food and service were excellent. I would highly recommend the mousaka and any of the pasta dishes.

Last time we were in Paphos this was our fave restaurant so we were keen to go back. We were not disappointed. So much so we went 3 times in our 7 day stay. The menu is smaller than last time as apparently the owners have parted way with one staying at this restaurant. The portions are huge - don't... More

Had a beautiful meze meal here, everything freshly cooked to perfection and with the hustle and bustle of the paphos streets around you, you still feel very relaxed. Good service too would eat here again.

We ate at this restaurant twice during our recent visit to Paphos. The food was excellent both times. The suckling pig dish was absolutely delicious. The service was good, but there didn't seem to be enough waiters on for how busy the restaurant were which meant that our bread came with the main meal - not ideal. However we were... More
