We were really looking forward to our meal here, the prices looked a little higher than other restaurants, but this led us to believe that it would be of a more premium quality, also the actual restaurant and the look of the place was very traditional looking and therefore stood out to us. We were impressed by the interior and... More

We dined here on our second night on holiday & it was one of the best meals we had in the weeks vacation. Definitely worth a visit as the meals were cooked to perfection.

Lovely food, lovely staff. Good choice of traditional Cypriot dishes. I had the Kleftico which was beautifully cooked. The white wine was lovely and cold and it was all followed with a very nice Calypso coffee.

We visited this restaurant twice during our stay. We had a variety of traditional Greek meals on both occasions, all food was well cooked, nicely presented and tasty. Service was very good, but not intrusive. It was reasonably busy on both occasions. Interesting interior with the plants and water feature which added to the ambience. Reasonably priced as well.

My friend ordered some of the make your own meze and the portions were very large - watch how many you order! The service was good, our... More

We visited here at the beginning of June and ate here twice as it was so nice. We probably would've ate here more but were keen to try other places, but this was probably my favourite. The atmosphere is very nice and staff are very attentive and friendly. I can be a little picky with food, but loved the meals... More

Whilst on holiday it was my birthday and I wanted a traditional greek meal/ By chance we saw the sign for here and went in. The service was excellent, the locals were also eating here and the place was clean and traditional, both in decor and on the menu. I had the Souvla - lamb on a skewer with rice,... More

The name of this tavern "Mandra" is the Greek word for a livestock enclosure.Over one hundred years ago, before the area of Kato Paphos was developed, the whole area around this tavern was used as grazing land for livestock. Many of the villagers who lived in Kato Paphos were shepherds and they built these livestock enclosures near the grazing sites. A "Mandra" was used to protect livestock from weather conditions, to store dairy products and sometimes for the shepherds to sleep in.Built with natural stone, much of which still stands today, the "mandra" consisted of a yard that usually contained divided areas of different levels, part of which was covered.This tavern used to be one such place. Its basic character, as can be seen, has been retained. Only a few additions and alterations have been made and this only so that our guests enjoy their traditionally prepared meals in a comfortable and pleasant environment.“Mandra Tavern" was established in 1979.
