From the moment we walked in, despite it being the first time we were there, we were welcomed as though we were long lost friends. Each of the 3 brothers are uniquely different yet all equally charming. Total passion about the food they are about to deliver and no disappointment what so ever. Authentic home cooked food in quaint surroundings.... More

We stumbled onto this place our first night in Paphos. The brothers welcomed us in and gave us a very nice first Meze in Cyprus. Food was above average, not fabulous, but very well priced.

My girlfriend and I decided to try Mother's on Wednesday 12th November after enduring days and days of average hotel food. After reading the reviews on trip advisor, and seeing that Mother's was one of the closest to the Paphos harbour bus station, we decided to try there. The restaurant is also close to St Pauls column, which is worth... More

Don't believe what others say about Mother's being hard to find. Don't bother hunting around the back of Debenhams. Just walk straight up the main road from Lower Paphos towards Upper Paphos, and there's a big sign by the archway on your right. And when you get in there? A warm welcome, excelent service, and the most WONDERFUL genuine Cypriot... More

This is the hardest restaurant I've ever had to find. Yes it is there behind Debenhams off the service road but on the left hand side and hidden away in a dark unlit, un signposted part of another car park. However don't let that put you off its well worth the trip. The restaurant is large (which makes not being... More

The service and food here is unbelievable. The two brothers and family members are totally amazing fun and genuine people. The food baked in their clay oven is to "die" for there are never enough night to eat in this restaurant. Thank you once again Hugh, Christine, Megan and Molly Glasgow. Also Ian and Helen Glasgow Scotland. We will see... More

Having read such positive reviews on Tripadvisor, me and my partner chose to sample the unique atmosphere of this hidden little gem on our third night in Paphos. Mothers' location, situated in a quiet courtyard just up the road from Paphos Harbour bus terminal, is rather 'well concealed' and so you do have to be looking for it to find... More

This was our first visit since the mid nineties when we used to go every night. We decided to give another visit to see if things had changed, and yes they have, service is excellent and the food is out of this world (must try the special Lamb and the Pork and Chicken cooked in the clay oven). The restaurant... More

I found this restaurant on trip advisor, so thought it was worth a visit. It didn't disappoint. The food was good, and the atmosphere and experience was fantastic. A friendly nature and a smile cost nothing, and these people have it in abundance. I would recommend a visit without hesitation.
