The Goddess of Food

If you’re visiting the Temple of Aphrodite and its museum (or even if you’re not) then be sure to make this your lunch stop. Maria is a fantastic host and welcomes every customer as if they were long lost friends but the real star of the show is her food. When we told her that her moussaka was the... read more

one of the most friendly taverns with delicious authentic food, fresh all home cooked. Wonderful hospitality. Maria, George & Leo could not do more for you, they will accommodate for all tastes.

This was our fourth visit to the Efraim Tavern, and as always Maria was extremely welcoming. The salad starters are wonderfully fresh and Maria specially cooked a plate of calamari for us to share. Our main courses were of a high quality, with the beef stifado and moussaka being firm favourites. As everything is cooked to order it may not... More

Needing to kill an hour or so before our flight back to the UK, we headed up to Kouklia and picked this tavern pretty much at random out of the ones in the village. We were warmly welcomed by the owner Maria and her son, and the food we ordered was delicious - freshly cooked and just the right amount;... More

Come here every time we visit Paphos and never had a bad food experience yet. Took a leisure drive out from Paphos for lunch just the two of us. Wife ordered a Kebab in Pitta and a Village Salad for myself. Both were perfectly portioned for a hot and sunny day lunch and tastily cooked too, well the Kebab anyway.... More

I have been there last weekend with 5 more friends . The place is very well situated in the middle of the village. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was well cooked and very tasty. We were all of us full but still compare with other tavernas in Paphos district they could serve a few more dishes at the... More

Went to Efraim Tavern (Maria's) as it was one of the top 5 in Kouklia where we were staying. The food was good, flavoursome Greek Cypriot food. Good portions, and served quickly. Maria as other reviewers have said was very welcoming, but a little over the top for our tastes. We felt that there was too strong an attempt to... More

My wife and I promised ourselves we would return on our spring holiday and this turned out to be three in a fortnight! Our final evening meal included the baked bass fillets and this was THE BEST we have ever had in many holidays to this island and in many taverna. It was really succulent.

We were recommended this Taverna by a local which is always a good sign and in return we would also recommend it! It was clearly a busy evening by having a coach tour of around 50 people at once but, that did not take away from the two of us having a fantastic meal and first class service by polite... More
