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

Having visited the arts centre in Kouklia, we were recommended to try this wonderful taverna. And we're so glad we did! The service was excellent; Maria is delightful and makes the vast majority of food herself. Testament to that was her homemade moussaka which was glorious! The accompanying salads were crunchy, beautifully dressed and full of flavour. The sea bass... More

This restaurant is situated right by the sanctuary of aphrodite - it is a pretty good traditional taverna! The food is very nice cypriot cuisine - we had fresh asparagus soup, beef stifado, macaroni, grilled mushrooms, and a lovely salad. The atmosphere is very down to earth and its a really nice antidote to the more touristy style places. Highly... More

We came here for a drink and decided to stay to eat. It is a traditional family run taverna and Maria is so friendly and has created the perfect setting in which to eat. Food was excellent and much cheaper than Paphos, well worth the ride out.
