Description: It should be noticed that the establishment is a very traditional one, in more ways than appearance. It is an old building of stone and wood. The two dining rooms are decorated with antiques and items from the old household of rural Cyprus. The garden is very pleasant with flowers and herbs growing all around it. The food is traditional and seasonal. We cook everything that can grow in Cyprus, basing a lot of our food on traditional dishes, and wild vegetables, picked by ourselves. We serve Meze, which traditionally means delicate taste, and in Cyprus it is used to mean a variety of delicacies. A typical meze at the 7 St Georges will start with salad and between 6-10 appetizers, this will differ every night but may include, homegrown olives, cured meats, dips and pickles. The meze will continue with a variety of traditional and some times contemporary meat and vegetable dishes. We use only the best meats to provide mouthwatering roasts and succulent casseroles, you can expect to enjoy our now well known Kleftico (lamb or beef on the bone cooked in sealed ovens, succulent) and a vegetarians delight of vegetable dishes, depending on the season they will include, rice stuffed marrow flowers, bumyas (ochra) cooked in a tomato and mint sauce, black eyed beans with home grown marrow, tomato fritters, cheese and vegetable pies. The meze will be about 20 dishes, depending how much one can eat, expect to be surprised and delighted at the array of dishes that will be brought to you over the meal (expect to be eating for about 2 hours), at the 7 St Georges we serve quality food in an informal and comfortable setting, take your time and enjoy the experience.

“Different, but good & romantic setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

This TripAdvisor raved about restaurant was a bit hard to find (by walking from Paphos), but it was possible. Wish I had taken a taxi.

We were met by a young man whom took the time to talk to us about the food and how it would be presented for us. Basically it's all organic foods and they will serve you till you say stop. The latter is a bit of a dilemma because I did not want to miss anything great (like pork). The starter was homemade bread, but hard to chew on. Luckily this was not the case for the rest of the meals. I really enjoyed most of the meals, the kleftico being a favorite. I even liked the haloumi. My bf also liked the food, but he was missing grilled meats.
The best part was the moist chocolate dessert. Again; different, but incredibly good.

The location outside of Paphos creates a more relaxing atmosphere and this makes for a good stop in the midst of a holiday to Paphos.

I give this 5/5 combined for service, food, setting and the enthusiast behind the meals - making this our best overall dining out experience in Paphos.

“It all depends on what you expect”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

It is not a gourmet restaurant, it is a very nice Cypriot taverna with its own creative ways, not a British twist. Too many tavernas compete on the same menu as they believe the Brits want it. We went there again today to see for ourselves what all the negative reviews were about, and came out satisfied. If you don't like cats, don't go there, although they waited rather patiently until they were invited.
As for the place itself, it is as pleasant as ever. Even if you are a good cook yourself, you get insight into how the food may be prepared another way. The house wine is good, both the red and white, not to forget the lovely bread. Do go if you are able to enjoy the place as it wants to present itself, a nice place to visit, and we could even have stayed there if it were for sale :-)

“Did not disappoint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

This was the third time we went to the restaurant and we had a fantastic time. The food was lovely and the wine was fantastic. There were five of us in our party, there was something for everyone and we were all thoroughly impressed with everything which was offered to us.

“It boggles the mind”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

It really boggles the mind on how such a restaurant can earn so many good reviews, but I think I know the answer. I've been in Cyprus for well over thirty two years and I know the island better than the locals. To say that this restaurant is one of the best in Paphos is a gross overstatement. Yes, the food does show up in small portions at your table as if served by a conveyor belt, but it's mostly low quality or bland. Granted there are a few exceptions, but on the whole there's nothing there to convince me to go back. However, it does seem to appeal to a certain category of people whose main goal is to eat as much as they can for as little as they can pay.

“Too many cats!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

This restaurant serves an average level of food with a good standard of service. However I do object to having so many cats around the tables trying to find scraps. Obviously some people don't seem to mind them but I while I can tollerate the odd moggy I counted 14 or 15 and that is too many and spoilt what could have been a pleasant evening out..
