“Lovely lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2015 NEW

We ate here twice during our stay, the first was a Sunday when we were looking forward to kleftiko and suckling pig but unfortunately they had sold out of both so we were a bit disappointed. My second choice was a pork chop and my husband had meatballs both of which were OK.
The second time we went for lunch, sitting outside in the sun and had souvlaki with lovely fresh finely chopped salad in a pitta along with a large beer which was delicious.
The staff/owners on doth occasions were very friendly.

“Friendly, traditional Cypriot Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2015 NEW

I had the suckling pig and it was fantastic, the staff were also very friendly and helpful. Most restaurants in the area around Hondros are tacky, touristy eats but this felt very traditional.

“Supposedly oldest taverna...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2015

Authentic simple dark taverna. Tahini was ok but lamb chops were from a very old lamb, probably as old as the taverna. Young lamb do not have so much fat. Hope to remember this place when visiting next time Paphos to have lunch elsewhere.

“Enjoyable outdoor barbecue, pleasant staff.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2015

We both had the barbecued lamb chops. They were delicious. So were the fried calamari we shared as a starter. Rustic atmosphere outside. Fairly quiet and set back from the main road and cool. The people were nice. We enjoyed a pleasant lunch.
Yes there were a few cats around but I would challenge earlier reviewers to point to any outdoor restaurant in Paphos (or even Cyprus), where there are no cats.
Worth a visit.

“Authentic Taverna”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2015

Found it at noon, by chance conveniently located just on a free parking lot very near the "fort".
Went in after spotting quite a few locals sitting there, a fact that signaled that it shouldn't be a "tourist trap".
Sat outside in the shade on a hot spring day. The setting and background music felt very nice and very Mediterranean. The starters promised a nice meal. The continuation was just OK. Nothing special. Prices, average. Service slow, as expected in a slow paced country where nobody's in a hurry.
