A gem in tourist area of Paphos

Went this week for first time ,having lived here for 9 years wish I had found it sooner. Charming old Cypriot style with a warm Cypriot welcome, hidden away behind Debenhams but you feel like you are in a hill village, no passing traffic.

Excellent food, generous portions and very friendly owners. This was our first visit but most of the other diners appeared to be regulars, the couple seated next to us have been coming for 20 years. Can't get better recommendation than that!

This was the best meal of the holiday. The owners are genuinely welcoming and funny. The food is superb. I had the Kleftiko, and unlike other places it isn't all bone. A huge piece of tender lamb. Do not miss this one off your list!

The food is the best value for money we have found all week. The staff are just fantastic, can't do enough for you. Wish I had found it before our last night. Would have been there all week otherwise. Don't miss it.

After reading trip advisor we went last night. Took a while to find it, but got there in the end. Had the Veggie Meze for 2, and it wasn't your usual boring veggie food. About 6 different things to eat, lovely. Great wine choice and very helpful staff. I felt that place could do with a bit of TLC but... More

Mother's restaurant is an excellent high quality restaurant right near the Paphos harbour. The brothers who own the place are most friendly and welcoming. All the food is simply delicious, especially the kleftiko and afelia dishes stayed in out minds. We will come again!

Dined with friends who had tried Mother's earlier in their holiday. Lovely restaurant - very traditional set in a courtyard tucked away in the centre of town near the bus station. The restaurant is run by three brothers who are all funny characters who make you very welcome & after your meal give you tricks to try and solve. Can... More

The hospitality in this restaurant is truly Cypriot. Food looks good and tastes even better. Served by 2 brothers and their cousin who made our time in the restaurant a pleasure. Worth a visit to experience good food and hospitality. Will be back!!

We had Sunday lunch at this restaurant And enjoyed the fact it was true to its roots, good host , food was as explained , it was a shame we were the only ones as it is a relaxing spot ,perhaps a little hard to find , through a dingy corridor, but do not be put off by this ,... More

We spent several evenings dining in Mother´s Restaurant with my friend. The owner is a very charismatic man who makes every customer feel as at home. The most favourite dish was oven-baked lamb. Also, selection of different meze (mix of starters) was very tasty.
