We visited twice, once for a traditional mezze and once for the suckling pig and buffet. Both were absolutely delicious and under 80 euros for 4 people and that included extras and 2 bottles of wine! The staff are friendly, the atmosphere was great (especially on a Thurs night when there is traditional cypriot dancing in the square!). Will definitely... More

This taverna is headed up by proprietor Gabriel and his wife. Both are utterly charming with a great sense of fun and a seemingly inexhaustible amount of energy. Their 11 year old son Theo helps out and is just as personable as his parents! The food is very good indeed - traditional fare - and the prices very reasonable. Fancy... More

If fed up of Aphrodite hills and it's rip off joints then come here. Food great, fresh and tasty, staff engaging, service good also and the setting seals the deal. Gabriel very good host and a natural with my kids. Great value too. I'm picky but couldn't fault Gabriel's!

We stumbled upon this place when just meandering through the countryside looking for a place to grab a cold beer having been to a beach and being in need. Kouklia is a little village just of the old road between Paphos and Limasol, with at a collection of taverns in the centre. Gabriels was the one with people sat outside... More

Found this by chance on our way back from Paphos. Excellent choice on the menu so very difficult to choose. Would have returned if we had had time left on holiday. My husband recommends the stifalia which he says is the best he has tasted. Chicken kebabs whether a plate or just in pitta were wonderful. A childs portion of... More

This place beats all the rest. It is a family run business and when I say family I mean from the youngest to the oldest.
