We first called in here on our first evening for a drink and the staff kindly fired up their grill to make us some fresh garlic bread as a snack. We returned for dinner proper last night and were warmly greeted again. We chose the Cypriot meze and were not disappointed. The food all tasted fresh and well cooked. Lovely... More

Disappointed this year, the food is still good, but not as great as it used to be. Fewer Customers than usual on the night we went. We didn't go back as we usually do..........I hope it gets back to the usual standard we have experienced in the past!

Superb restaurant, superb food and excellent service. Thank you to Vassilis and George for making a really special evening for my daughters birthday. First time back to Cyprus for us in 10 years and this tavern is the epitome of the beautiful people here. An absolute must visit restaurant and fish meze to die for!

There were 12 of us in our party & we had a selection of meat & seafood meze. The food was fab & there was plenty of it. The atmosphere... More

Could only give George an hour's notice that twenty of us wanted to come for dinner. Great welcome from the staff who had us all seated together, with drinks, very quickly. The food and service were excellent considering it was very short notice for such a large party. We have been many times before and will be there again in... More

Popped in for a coffee and a quick snack one afternoon. Friendly service and good value for money. Returned a few days later to be greeted as long term regulars - really good to be appreciated .

We have eaten here on a previous holiday so knew it would be good. However it is embarrassing to be the only customers all night.....we wondered why. We had some complimentary pitta with garlic butter....excellent mushroom starters....probably the best beef stiffado ever.....nice desserts.....good wine......Greek music playing......all in all very good experience. I think the failing is when the bill arrives......this... More

We visited Michael's out of season as we were in Paphos in December for a cheap last minute holiday. We popped in to escape a shower of rain that had caught us off guard and were very pleasantly surprised with the place. Michael is just fantastic, the wee cat is adorable and we are very much looking forward to going... More
