It's been 6 years since we last stayed at Limnaria Gardens (3 mins walk away) and we were concerned the local restaurants might have changed. Michael's is still just as lovely and relaxed as ever. It's a true family restaurant with delicious lamb, beef, chicken, mezes etc. We ate here 3 times during our week - the atmosphere and staff... More

What a great find, across the wooden bridge from Limnaria Gardens in Paphos Gardens. Excellent food and lovely atmosphere. I would eat here rather than walking into town. They welcomed us for an early dinner before we went for our flight. You must try

the menu, as I mentioned in other review, is almost the same in all restaurants around and the opening hours are specific - you can't have lunch in luchtime as the restaurants have lunch brake :-) but all 4 generation of teh owners we met are very nice and friendly people, we liked them so much!

We tried a couple of restaurants in Paphos Harbour only to be disappointed by the quality of the food. We then tried Michael's Tavern thinking we were going to get the same experience. How wrong could we have been. It was a pleasant surprise, the food was good, the staff very friendly, (we even stayed late chatting to them after... More

Had visited Michaels a number of times over the last 6 or 7 years.. Food is always to a good standard and the wine is good as well, Plus the welcome from the staff ( family run) is just as warm as ever when we visited this last August. Will come back again next time we are in the area.

We chanced upon this restaurant on our first day in Paphos and were made welcome in.such a civilised way (none of that rather patronising attention you sometimes get). Midday food was exactly what we wanted so we went back that evening for dinner and were not disappointed. We went on to eat there several times during the week and the... More

Michaels family restaurant is a Cypriot Taverna in Paphos and is tucked away down a side street near the Evis bar off the main road, Poseidonas Avenue. We came across it in October 2013 and vowed we would return there on our next visit to Paphos. We have just spent 10 days in Paphos and visited the restaurant on 3... More

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
