“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2010

Just back from Paphos for the third year running and cant believe we didnt find this superb restaurant before now, But it was worth the wait! Its tucked down a side road off the tomb of kings road. It has a lovely atmosphere and the service was first class but what stands out in this eating house has to be the fantastic food they produce, you have to go try it out for yourselves, I promise you wont be disappointed. if you like pate' your in for a treat as its the best you will ever taste!!! It will be my first port of call when I arrive back next year.

“good food - if you can stand the arrogant waiters!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2010

what put us off was the sheer arrogance of the waiters, the younger one especially. Perhaps he thought he was amusing but we found him rude.

the restaurant does lack atmosphere - that said, the portions are generous and the food is tasty and authentic - would neither recommend nor return.

“Big fans of this little haven!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2010

We stumbled on this restaurant 5 years ago when we first visited Paphos and have been going back with different groups of friends ever since.

Sephanos and his staff arre marvellous and make every experience memorable. All the dishes are fresh and to your liking and the Dolmades are to die for (but then so are the desserts and other things!) .

If you are in the Tombs of the Kings area keep your eye out for Metaxas (its tucked away neatly) and pay it a visit. Its definitely high on our list of places to go.

“Delicious Italian and Greek food at a reasonable price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2010

This restaurant was a few minutes walk from our hotel so we ended there by accident and weren't disappointed. The food was very good and the restaurant staff were friendly and polite. We ate there several times and tried a couple of fish dishes, some of the Greek specialities and a pasta dish. The pasta wasn't anything special, although it was tasty, but everything else was very good.
