Great atmosphere. Staff very attentive.Obviously very popular as it was very busy whereas other restaurants were quiet. Food was OK, altho' stuffed vine leaves which had been recommended were quite dry with not a huge amount of flavour .

The best restaurant in Paphos / Polys. The most warm hospitality in the island. Food is traditional and the wine local. A great experience.

This is a friendly and welcoming restaurant (with a wonderful open log fire in the cooler evenings). The food is generally very good - particularly the fresh fish; the kleftiko, however, like that in many other restaurants, did not taste as if it had come freshly from the traditioal clay oven.

I didn't at first put in a review of this restaurant because it's just over a year since my wife and I visited it (i.e. March 2013) and we only visited once. It's fine as a pretty serviceable Cypriot restaurant that is one of a bunch of places near the centre of Polis. Maybe I'd put it a bit up-market... More

The moment you walk in to the restaurant you are made to feel welcom and comfortable. The waiters and owner are very friendly and put u at ease. There is a good choice of food all freshly cooked and well presented. The wine choice is good but we found the best was the house wine. I asked if I could... More

My wife and myself have known Andreas and his family for many years - we have watched his children grow up, but the food and the service have never faltered. It is, quite simply, the best. How it is only rated second best in Polis is beyond me. For the first time this year, all our family will be with... More
