Description: “Peyia Tavern” is a family restaurant and is highly recommended, here you will have the opportunity to sample the “Traditional Special Meat Meze”, great dish for the meat lovers. The meat is cooked in the traditional Cypriot way (on the charcoal). The Special Meze is served one dish at a time by the Taverna staff which are family members. Be careful not to over face yourself with the bread, salad, dips and pourgouri (traditional couscous) which is served as an appetiser prior to the meat dishes. Also the taverna serves traditional dishes like "Halloumi", "Sieftalia" and "Stifado".

We walked into the small but busyTavern and was greeted by a waiter who asked if we'd booked( there were tables laid up for people who obviously been there before) we said... More

On of our top 4 Taverns to eat at. Book a table as the balcony is small. There is room inside normally but they do get booked up as the food is good here. When we asked for the menu, to our children's delight he announced 'I am the menu' and proceeded to tell us what was available. My Mother... More

My group of 6 friends voted Peyia Tavern #1 in town for traditional Cypriot Mezze. We absolutely loved our experience here as we stuffed ourselves silly on pork chops, meatballs, sausage, chicken, and lamb. Unbelievable food. Thank you Peyia Tavern for an unforgettable meal!

This must be one of the last few remaining home made cooking taverns in Paphos. The food is well cooked and abundant.. at very reasonable prices. Everything from the tzatziki to the tashi is home made and delicious....and their grilled dishes are large and fresh...If you are in the Peyia area it is definitely a place to consider... just make...

Excellent family run taverna. The food and local wine are fantastic. The service is good and you are made to feel very welcome. We opted for the meze which was the best we have tasted. All the food is freshly prepared/cooked and the portions are very generous and the prices really reasonable. Our three young children also loved coming here... More

We stayed in Peyia and read good reviews about the Peyia Tavern - we were not disappointed. We opted for the Meze and on advice ensured we were hungry as you get a lot of food to try; meats, salad, Cous Cous, bread and chips - all fantastic. The service was excellent and we felt very welcome. Will be returning... More

It was an engaging day yesterday. Much of it spent in the company of friends, engaged in lively discussion across a wide range of matters. Our evening meal was also pleasing. It is rare for us to leave the plains of Paphos and we set off up the mountain to join friends for a taverna dinner and another lively discussion... More
