I had a meal at this restaurant, and I'd rate it just "average/good" compared to all the other restaurants I've been to generally. In terms of Paphos, this is the best place I've eaten yet. The highlight of the meal was the red-pepper/walnut/pomegranate starter. This dish was top notch in terms of taste. It had depth of flavour, a rich colour and was very "more-ish" I also ordered the "speciality" starter/dish of potato/garlic...which was the main disappointment of the meal, very under-seasoned. I tried to order an olive starter instead but was told they didn't have this as it was "too salty"...same with the pickle dish on the menu. I like salty food or I would not have ordered these. I ended up having to add salt to the "potato" dip/dish that was brought to me, and I think I would have enjoyed the olive/pickle dish (which was on the menu) more than the dish I ended up ordering. In lieu of the dishes I asked for the waiter recommended the falafel, which was very good. As I was dining alone he suggested that they could split the 4 (normal) portions into 2 dishes, so I could have variety, which was very considerate. So I also got to sample the cheese in pastry was tasty, but not unlike other stuffed phyllo I've had. The grilled lamb (main course) was excellent. The best lamb I've had. It was grilled just right. I'm sometimes apprehensive about lamb, because I'm not always a fan of the strong gamey taste, but this was done just right. I actually enjoyed it with the yogurt dip that was served with the falafel. I would ask about a dip for this if (like me) you like a sauce with your meat. I ordered 2 starter (dips) with bread, had 4 bite-size starts with a dip, a lamb main course and a drink for 18 Euros.
