We wanted an authentic Cyprian meal as the food in the buffet at the hotel was getting boring and we walked past the Mandra Tavern and thought it would fit the bill perfectly - and we weren't disappointed. The restaurant was really busy and all the food that was coming out looked and smelt delicious. We started with 4 OREKTIKA... More

We were a party of 4 we viewed it during the day and thought it looked authentically Cypriot. Service was good but a bit pricey compared to others offering a similar menu-most expensive we have paid. Food was good but not fantastic.

Took the advice from my fellow trip advisors and came here for a very good fish meze. The two waiters were extremely efficient and worked hard with good humour. Very traditional and querky tavern.

Loved the ambience in this restaurant, plants and water feature created a relaxing atmosphere together with traditional music. My daughter and I had the fish mezze for two and it was amazing. Four different courses of pure delight. Dips, pitta and salad followed by two courses of delicious fish and seafood tasters and the final course of a whole seabream... More

and will probably go there again. The best traditional Cypriot food,in my opinion, to be found in Paphos. Served with attention & humor, and not terribly expensive either. Definitely not the run of the mill tourist restaurant.

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.
