“Overrated by far”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013 via mobile

We went hoping for a good quality night but left bitterly disappointed
The starters were not treat and the service slow and inept. Even had two waiters arguing over our table regarding a missed order on another table!
Mains took over 90 mins and Risotto was very salty and bland.
Staffing was short and blamed customers for not booking and just walking in!
Not our fault you were unable to cope guys.
Overall very slow and not great food and wish we had gone elsewhere!

“Quality food, personally cooked”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013 via mobile

Lovely meal again, having tried last year.
No plated meal here, delicious fillet with quality fresh sauce, nice seperate fresh veg.
Service personal and correct. Nice tables, cloth napkins.
Good value considering quality.
Chef will advise you personally if you are unsure
At risk of sounding snooty, which we aint, recommend for couples and discerning diners without hesitation and will return.

“New discovery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Came across this restaurant which is in a side street off the main road on our 3rd visit to Paphos and was very impressed. The restaurant itself is very clean and nicely presented and the food excellent, offering something different with some quirky names for the food eg "Little Piggy in the Mushroom Field" for a pork dish. I had chicken in a limoncello sauce and the sticky toffee apple cake - yum!

“Wonderful, service and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

The restaurant may not look like the most enjoyable place to spend an evening but it most certainly is. It is clean and friendly and we were made to feel most welcome on our first visit. Tables are moved in and out of the restaurant depending on where guests would like to sit.
Everything is done in a professional way and drinks very quickly arrived while we mulled over the interesting menu gradually whittling down the numerous dishes that we first wanted to try.
Each meal is served with great attention to detail. All dishes are cooked fresh to order so be prepared to sit back and enjoy the whole experience. Forget fast food - this is proper dining and an unhurried relaxed meal is guaranteed.
The menu is varied and includes traditional Cypriot dishes as well as amazing Italian fare. The prices are extremely reasonable and the staff take great pride in their restaurant ensuring that everyone enjoys their evening.
Thank you for solving our evening meals.........FOUR times in one week! It has been difficult to try and get back into boring food in the UK. Looking forward to a return trip for some more great dishes and making room for the wonderful roulade!! Congratulations to Stephanos and Claudio. You certainly live up to your name of Superlative Catering. Thank you.
