Mataxas Restaurant although situated on a small side road and easily missed, was on the route we walked daily from our accommodation to the main street (Tombs of the Kings Road) where most of the bars, restaurants, gift shops and other eating/retail outlets were to be found in this area of Paphos. Not being overly passionate about Italian food, it... More

We went to Metaxas on our last night in Paphos and I can't recommend it enough! As a coeliac who can't eat dairy, it was amazing to go to an Italian whereby they offer plenty of options (including pizza and pasta for the gluten free). Service was excellent, food delicious and reasonably priced. Thank you to Stefanos and his team!

This Restaurant was close to where we were staying so we thought we would give it a try. Atmosphere was nice and cosy, manager and waiter were both very helpful. The food was really good not just a typical Italian, and very reasonably priced. Will definately go back.

I don't know why we haven't dined here before last night, as it appears we have been missing out on a fantastic experience. The food was GREAT. Only thing I just missed out on was the Tiramisu, the last was ordered by two ladies. However, the chef made me something equally as nice. My husband had sticky toffee apple cake....OMG... More

Decided to give this place a try after reading some good reviews. However I was very disappointed. This place is no more than a standard "couldn't care less" holiday resort eatery. The food was fair but nothing special and the service, or lack of it, dreadfully slow and at times non existent. Our waiters were either talking to themselves or... More

We were dissapointed to have found this lovely restaurant on our last night because we would have gone back a few more times to try other items on the extensive menu. The service is impeccable and the theme is Cypriot / Italian. I would recommend trying this restaurant, the food is delicious, the prices are affordable and the dining experience... More

Visited three times in April and hope to return before the end of May. Mario waits the tables with grace and genuine interest while Stephano works magic in the kitchen. We have tried the sea bream the steak as well as the lamb shank and all we're outstanding. Dessert favourites are the lemon tart and the profiteroles. Book tox avoid... More
