This is the hidden gem in Paphos, it is a family run establishment and the menu is extensive . The service was very good and the food delivery to a high standard. It is well worth a visit if you are in the harbour area.

After reading the reviews we had the traditional Cyprus meze - All courses were well seasoned, fresh and meat was very tender. Costas (the owner) explained each dish and how he grew ingredients for the dishes. There was so much that we had to decline the final 2 dishes. Prices were more than reasonable and the company and passion of... More

Not only is the food good, but it's an interesting experience as the two brothers provide entertainment, just by the way they are, both with each other and the diners Not easy to find, as it is set back from the road somewhat, but there is a sign pointing to Mothers from the road that goes down to the bus...

Nice enough place, food ok but not the best visited on previous years put bypasses this year. The waiter (owner) talks at your table too much.

After looking through a whole list of traditional restaurants we thought we would give Mothers a try. We were certainly not disappointed! Upon entering the restaurant we received a very welcome from Carlos, one of the brothers, and sown to our table. The decor is very comfortable, almost like that of someone's living/patio area, but don't let this deter you.... More

We have used this fantastic Taverna/Restaurant over the last few years and it gets better and better. The daily specials cooked in the clay oven are a must, this is food as it should be, not a modern twist! The service is welcoming and unique, the brothers are so friendly and will explain the food if you are not sure... More

We have lived in Cyprus for a few years but only just found this incredible place. Superb food, sensible prices and great hospitality from the family owners. We will definitely be going back and would highly recommend this restaurant to residents and holiday makers alike. Thank you Mother's!
