“Great service & excellent price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

I ate there the night before last and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
I had the set menu for 9.90 Euros which doesn't include a drink. The soup was very good, the mixed grill was good and ice cream to finish. Complimentary watered down double brandy and fresh fruit to finish.
Great budget meal - highly recommend if you need a meal for under 15 Euros

“Mario is Phivos's Restaurant Recruiter.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

Have been to Cyprus on 40 occasions with my wife, the majority of these visits have been to Paphos. Over the last few years we have visited in May and October of each year and always go to see our friends at Phivos Restaurant. We can honestly say that we have never had a bad meal there. The staff are very friendly and accomodating. Mario is their whipper-in, by that he is the person that cajoles people to enter. Their sauces with the steak are very tasty. Brandy sours are good too. Prices for the set meal, which we invariably have, are reasonable. We will be there again in October 2012, so get the brandy sours ready Phivos!

“Awful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

It is mass-produced, designed to catch tourists. The menu is so vast you just know things arent fresh, and are probably popped in the microwave.

“Phil C : Edinburgh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

The best restaurant in Paphos by far. Very friendly staff who provide free fresh fruit and a complimentry cocktail at the end of every meal. Food standards are very high and very tasty. Large varied menu with something for everyone. I've been going to Cyprus now for fifteen years and I still haven't found anywhere to beat this restaurant. Easy to find opposite the Olmera Hotel and run by Phivos and his family. Nothing is a bother and they will make anything for those on special diets.

“Awful! couldn't even finish our meal so bad!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

Visited this Taverna on our way back to Paphos airport after a lovely week in Pegia. Have been to Cyprus 7 or 8 times and live off meze's when i am here, mainly around the Coral Bay and Pagia area, and also on the Tomb of the Kings Road, however this is my first in Paphos....and most probably my last if they are all like this!
At first glance, all went well...our drinks were lovely. Then came the salad...a classic start to any meze...and that's when it went down hill. There was barely enough for two to share, let alone the four of us. In fact, it would appear that it doesn't really matter upon the size of your group eating, everyone get's the same size! The table opposite us and over the other side, both couples, received exactly the same size portion...and that went for the whole meze, not just the salad. The rest of the courses were dissapointly small, most were tasteless and overcooked...probably because we all agreed that it tasted like yesterday's dishes heated up!
After we gave this restaurant as serious chance, none of us could stomach any more...not that there was much more to come anyway...the first time i've ever walked away from a Meze still hungry! We complained, which fell on deaf ears, paid the bill and walked out.
Please save your money....i normally try to seek out the best 'tripadvisor' reviews, however on this occassion i can only assume that the 18 reviews before me must have been family!
