Gabriels still has the charm of a Taverna you would have eaten in on Cyprus 30 plus years ago, Everything is homemade not mass produced, Gabriel himself is a character which gives the place a quiet charm, if you enjoy 21st century eating this is not the place for you. Long may this traditional Taverna continue on its existing ethos.

This was our first visit to this restaurant. The welcome was charming, funny and warm. The food was good with free bread and fruit. Both the Lamb keflico and the cheese and mushroom sheftarlia was excellent. This was our first visit, but not our last!

This family run restaurant is amazing and I would highly recommend it. From the minute you arrive to the minute you leave Gabriel and Sophia treat you like one of the family. This place is truly a gem in the crown of Cyprus. Thank you for making us so welcome. Chris and Sandra x

First time to Gabriel's, but not to Kouklia, how had we missed it before. Food was excellent I had stefado and my partner had sea bass. Definately worth the short drive from Mandria. Hosts really know how to make you feel welcome, will definitely be returning and recommending to all my friends.

This was our first visit to Gabriel's tavern. The food was tasty and the prices are very fair. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her vegetables in cheese sauce baked in the oven and my chicken was succulent, although a little on the small side. The chips and accompanying salad and pitta bread were all excellent. The complimentary cake was a very... More

Have been to Gabriel's Tavern many times and it never fails to be a great evening. The food is good and the owners Gabriel and his wife Sophia are two of the most genuine people you will meet. They always are smiling and treat all customers as their friends. The food is good especially moussaka and kleftiko with great local... More

Their tavern serves great food with great friendly service. It is located in a small traditional square and is frequented by locals which is always a good sign. Our seafood starters were delicious and I would strongly recommend the mixed grill washed down by a carefe of local white wine - perfect

Great evening out with the family. Fantastic food and plenty of it. Reasonably priced too. The best part about it was the hospitality. They're really proud of their restaurant; and rightly so. Highly recommended.
