First time in Paphos staying on Tomb of the Kings Road. Wandered into this delightful restaurant after reading the menu board outside and noticing that tonight's speciality was Lamb Kleftico. So glad we did. Absolutely beautiful meal, lovely surroundings and a fantastic waitress who couldn't do enough for us. Went back a few nights later (early March 2015) and again,... More

We stumbled across this taverna in search of lunch. Placed on a main road, yet not really in the tourist area it's slightly out of the way. This is good though as it isn't as busy as some other ones in the tourist area. We were the only ones there at the time, really good food, nicely presented and a... More

Tried a mixed meze. All freshly cooked and gorgeous, the sea bream was a highlight. The local wine is 'robust' and goes well with the smoky flavours. recommended

Had a lovely meal here recently. The Moussaka and Stifado were delicious. Staff were very pleasant, and the waitress went above and beyond by explaining about local dishes and provided extras and sides without charge. The restaurant is very clean, with a lovely atmosphere. Cant wait to return.

The strip of restaurants and bars where Dias Zeus is situated means that there is a great deal of choice available. This is definitely worth stopping for. Amongst a whole range of restaurants serving British or very basic Greek/Cypriot fare the menu here was really varied. We had the vegetarian meze and the range of dishes we received was astounding...

We tried to have lunch in this place. It looked nice from the street. Three things I asked for were not available. The beef I eventually got was poor quality, fatty and tough. My son had Squid which was so tough it was inedible and just tasted of cheap deep frying oil. What was good. They didn't charge for the... More

Naturally we are very disappointed that you did not enjoy your lunch with us. This is certainly not the dining experience we seek to promote, particularly as we endeavour to provide a good dining experience for all our guests which, for the most part, is reflected in the reviews you may have read on Trip Advisor.

We visited Dias Zeus on our first night, as it was just a few bus-stops from our apartment at Hilltop Gardens on Tombs of Kings Avenue. We had the fish meze @ 16.90 euros per person, and it was fantastic. The dishes just kept coming, and they were all well-cooked and tasted wonderful. We also had a litre carafe of... More
