We wanted to experience a true Greek taverna and this was perfect so good we went twice! To start the atmosphere was friendly and welcoming, ran by two brothers who love what they do. There is an extensive traditional Cypriot menu with plenty of meat and seafood options plus lots of options for vegetarians. A lot of the vegetables and... More

This is a very authentic restaurant serving traditional Cypriot food and is situated in a quiet courtyard just off the street. I really would advise coming here for both the food and the experience. First, the food is of a far higher quality than the majority of restaurants in Paphos, all home cooked on site. I would recommend the lamb... More

The Mothers Taverna, Paphos. Visited 4th to 11th November Sorry for late review but we are moving house. If you want to find this amazing place to eat, it's behind Debenhams, but I would advise first going to "The Sky Bar" at the Pyramos Hotel ( see my review ) and Nick will give you directions, The two brothers here...

Once you have found this restaurant you will be welcomed by the owner in his incredibly friendly way and the food is just so good and very reasonably priced. I can only comment on lunches we have had there on two visits but if the quality of them are reflected in the evening then you will not want to go... More

We were over mid November for 10 days and ate here either for lunch or dinner for 6 of these. From the meze to the moussaka all was tasty, fresh and well prepared but the highlight had to be the daily specials cooked in the clay oven. If you love lamb then visit on the Tuesday evenings (kleftiko) or Friday... More

We wanted to visit this place because the reviews for it were outstanding. So one night when we were down by the harbour we decided to source it out. We were glad we did because the place is lovely most of the tables are located in the courtyard with strange looking climbing plants everywhere. I remember the main front of... More

Just returned from a week in Paphos. For the 13th year in a row we went to Mother's for dinner. As always the food was excellent and the brothers were both entertaining and attentive. If you're there on a Tuesday the kleftico, from their clay oven, is so good!!

We enjoyed or meal here last night. It was adequate and reaonably priced, but the chuckle brothers (luvvly jubbly and sex on the beach) were superb value. Very welcoming, very attentive and funny! Worth going just for them, be quick though, they close for the winter soon.

We were looking for an traditional Cypriut restaurant and went to Mother's restaurant on the recommendation of our Segway tour guide. We received a very friendly welcome and our host recognised us from earlier in the day when we did the Segway tour across the way from the restaurant. We had the fish Mezze which is like a tasting menu.... More
