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!

While working near the village we ate regularly at Gabriel's both at lunchtime and for dinner. The food is consistently excellent, both meat-based and vegetarian, and Gabriel and Sophia are very friendly and welcoming. It's also very good value.
