You will not find better food, service or ambience than this family run taverna, always welcoming best Mousakka anywhere

Every time we go to Pafos we make sure we eat here. Superb traditional Cypriot food, nicely served. Proabaly one of the best Moussakas in Cyprus. Akis is a wonderful host whenever you visit.

We called - as people often do - for a light lunch before flying home. The village salad is the very best around and the pittas are good too. Nice house wine. Sat outside. Perfect lunch. But we must come back for dinner sometime -...More

Couldn't comment on the vegetarian issue. Would suggest you ring them first. It's a family run taverna and they are very helpful and the food is plentiful.

Hi, I think they close after lunch at 3pm and open again for dinner. I don't know what days I am afraid.

A simple traditional taverna, family run, with no gourmet elements, as that would contradict the whole concept, in a village setting and beautiful gardens. My mum prepares the food with lots of love and the rest of us make sure it is served to you properly and on time! The presentation is simple as well, as my father wants, although my mother would love to show off a bit more of her skills:) However and most importantly, it is genuinely Cypriot!We have had the taverna since 1990 and during the years we have made a lot of wonderful friends and shared with them beautiful moments, wedding and christening parties, anniversaries and birthday parties. That is the best part of the story!So, after writing a whole essay I realise I could just describe it with one single sentence: A family-run tavern who loves Cypriot food and enjoys serving its visitors!Thank you for taking the time to read it!
