Much obliged

When we arrived in Cyprus, very late, very hungry, this was the only restaurant that would serve us some basic food. Job done. Went back yesterday with access to a full menu and found everything very good. Great location in this friendly square, I would recommend Efraim for good local cuisine.

We visited this taverna twice while staying in secret valley. The owner, Maria is very friendly and accommodating, offering to tweak any dishes to omit anything that the children didn't like. The first time we visited, the adults had meze and we were very impressed - very nice Cypriot dishes (obviously), which were tasty and filling. We liked it very... More

My Husband is Cypriot and we have recently had our Daughter Christened in Kouklia. We chose Marias Taverna for the party and meal afterwards and a fantastic night was had by all! The food and atmosphere were wonderful. Maria and her family made everybody feel so so welcome! Nothing was too much trouble and the prices are exceptionally good. This... More

My friends and I have been staying at Aphrodite Hills since 2008. We attended Efraim twice during our recent stay. It is a traditional family run taverna with a fantastic location in the middle of the square. Once again, we were not disappointed with this restaurant, value, quality and service. Try the music on a Thursday. Maria - thank you... More

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 best... More
