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.

I ate at Efraim Tavern tonight, and I couldn't ask for a nicer welcome, or meal. The food (traditional home cooking) was excellent and filling, and a good price, and the setting was lovely. Although it was a little off road, it was well worth it.

My wife and I came across this taverna (ouzarri) on a previous holiday and vowed to make a return visit. This we did in October and it did not disappoint. Maria and son George made us welcome as if we were long lost members of the family! We ended up making any excuse for a shopping trip to Paphos so... More

★★★★★ Over the last two weeks, we were in Cyprus for our daughter's wedding at The Cove Beach, Aphrodite Hills. Although we know Cyprus pretty well, this is the first time we went to Kouklia, purely by chance one late evening. And what a amazing discovery it was. We walked around the little quintessentially Cypriot village and checked out the... More

Mrs. Maria is very hospitable. She is a specialist and I assure you about that. I love going to the tavern especially during winter because I love her soups. Definitely you must visit this tavern

If you want to try Cypriot meze it's a great option, in a beautiful environment, far away from the city centre.
