Lovely restaurant in back streets of Paphos.

We found this place by chance as we were walking down to the harbour one evening. We passed a few bars and restaurants on the main highway but also an array of restaurants up a side street on the way down. I looked on my Trip Advisor app and noticed that two of the restaurants were in the Paphos... read more

Just returned from a family holiday in Paphos, having visited many times and always visit Michael's Tavern. The family run restaurant offers an excellent Cypriot menu and the weekly special of suckling pig is delicious!! My son always wants to go to Michael's and loves the pitta/oil/garlic butter provided complimentary. Thanks to George and rest of the family and staff... More

We had a nice meal here - it was a good find down a side street, enjoyed the meal and the pudding afterwards too! I'd definitely recommend it - not too pricey either.

If not for trip advisor would not have found this place. In the end we visited twice. Staff were lovely - feels like a family owned business. Recommendations were made about both food and wine, and couldn't fault anything. We went twice, I had the Mousakka twice because it was soo good. The Pitta and oil to start were super.... More

This is of those tucked away gems off the beaten track. So if you never used tripadvisor or the like, you would never know about it. The place is average looking taverna and unpretentiuos, but the fact that it's family run makes all the difference. The special on when we were there was suckling pig (which we both of course...

Having read good reviews of Michael's family Cypriot Taverna on this site we decided to visit ---- no less than 4 times during our fortnight! It is advisable to boôk even on a Sunday(their closed day) when if required they open! We enjoyed suckling pig at 12 euros, and more traditional dishes for less. The welcome is typically Cypriot and... More
