“Romantica revisited”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

Each time I visit Paphos, I always make a point of visiting Romantica for my meal.
I am not disappointed with either the food or the service. The staff, Nemi, Cristina, Violeta and of course the infamous Bambos always make me feel welcome.

I have read a few of the reviews mentioning long waits for food, but this has not been my experience.

The menu is varied, and of course the house 'special' comprising of three courses is excellent value for money, particularly if you choose to eat early with an extra 10% discount offered. Bambos always manages to escape from his kitchen to see his guests and chat with them. Such a personal gesture goes a long way. On one visit he even gave myself and a colleague a lift back to our hotel! Way beyond the call of duty I think!

“AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! YOU MUST VISIT!!!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

We have just returned from a trip to Paphos and ate 4 meals at the Romantica. Each time the food was excellent, you must try the Romantica special steak!! The staff are all so welcoming and made a fuss of the children. Bambos (owner and chef) welcomes you as a member of his family, the atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Cyprus. The menu is extensive and plenty of yummy choices for vegetarians. Not one bad word to say about any of the 20 meals we ate there. Can't wait to visit again!
Thank you.

“Food not bad but poor service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

We visited this restaurant as our only couples night we had within our weeks stay and found the food OK but the service was quite poor as we had a pretty long wait. The atmosphere seemed OK and it seemed busy but looked like a lot of people seemed to be waiting on food at the same time we were there also.

Loved the food which was well presented and hot. The staff were very attentive and very pleasant. We were even given a gratis liqueur after our meal.

“Such a welcoming restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

It is always so nice to return to the Romantica as you get such a warm welcome as if you are long lost relatives. We did manage to go 3 times but on our last night (8th October ) the place was packed, we have never seen it so busy. We were lucky that we had reserved a table and sat down at 7.30pm and managed to get our 3 course meal fairly quickly. But I know there were a lot of people waiting and this is quite unusual but I do think they were missing a waitress. So please if you were there that night do not let that put you off cos we certainly will go back next time we are in Paphos. Can't wait to see all the staff again and eat the wonderful food.
