Description: The Oliveto Stonegrill Concept. The method of cooking food on stones can be traced back to the Ancient Egyptians and Vikings. Now, Oliveto Stonegrill offers a unique interactive dining experience where diners meals are served cooking at the table on super-heated natural volcanic stones. These specially selected stones, chosen for their high heat retention, are heated to 400°C (752°F) in our purpose-built Stonegrill oven. Meals are presented within a protective ceramic serving tray, sided by vegetables and condiments. The high temperature obtained with the Stonegrill Method, sears the product faster and locks in the natural juices and nutrients, enhancing the full flavour and tenderness of all foods. The unique "dry cooking" method, uses no added fats or oils and sears the food without burning. This method also eliminates product shrinkage, taste transfer from cooking compounds and carbonization of the cooking surface. It ensures a clean, and completely natural food flavour, not achievable with conventional cooking methods. The result is a freshly grilled, healthy and nutritious meal with a sensational taste, unique to Stonegrill

“One of the best restaurants in Paphos!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Surprised to see Oliveto isnt ranked higher on trip advisor tbh! Have been twice and both times staff were attentive,friendly and professional, the place is clean with lovely decor. The food itself is to a very high standard and moreish. The stone grill is great and something different, its a must do with any of our visitors. Had steak and prawns for main both times which were outstanding, the meat is of a very high standard. Will definitely be back again. Great restaurant and a shame to see its not ranked higher on here.

“Hot stones and cook your own”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013 via mobile

Arrived late from airport so not many people in but food good. Kids cooked their own on a hot stone which was fun with an apron and hat. Brought one child's spaghetti before everyone elses so they had finished well before rest of food arrived but lovely environment and overall good

“Lovely Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

The food was really nice, and if you're new to this kind of cooking then give it a try. The only downside is that it is quite expensive. We were able to share so this made it more affordable, but we were two ladies with normal appetites - couldn't have shared with my other half!

“sometimes things are getting in the wrong direction”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

If there are only a few guests - three waiters and you have to wait nearly 20 min. to have the chance to order (at least) the drinks ??? We know the restaurant with better service
