Popped into the village for our last meal before flying home but had 10 tavernas to choose from. We are so delighted we chose Gabriel's as the food was cooked fresh and was delicious. Would certainly eat here again.

Visiting friends in Kouklia recently we ate at Gabriel's 3-4 during the week. The food was fresh and tasted amazing. It was great to feel at home and try some local dishes. We cannot wait to go back :)

Just had an excellent late lunch at Gabriels! Chose a wonderful mixture of starters and little plates - all beautifully cooked and presented. Sitting in the afternoon sun with a glass of wine - it was delightful! All the staff were extremely friendly and attentive. Will definitely visit again.

Delicious local food and very nice house wine we had on our first visit. The service was genuinely good and won us for sure. It won't be long before we go back and make this little gem of traditional and friendly place one of our favorite spots on the island. It is what Cyprus tavernas were known for once

This was our second visit to Gabriels, on a cold February day, with snow and sleet blowing outside we received a lovely warm welcome, and a table by the log burner.

I've visited Kouklia a couple of times now and always return to Gabriel's. The food is traditional and homemade, you are made to feel welcome by the staff and locals. Try their stuffed Sheftalia! Highly recommend visiting. Thank you Gabriel!
