We visited Mandra Tavern during our holiday and we really enjoyed it. The staff was great and the food was top quality. We visited again on our last night and again we were not disappointed. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to experience what Cypriot food and hospitality is all about.

I spent a few days in Cyprus in October last year, and just had to go back to Mandra Tavern. Everything from the ambient and friendly service to the rich and utterly tasty menu, contributed to a great night out. Anyone visiting Paphos should definitely have this place on their Itinerary.

The food in here was great, the service was very good as well. This is a nice restaurant offering traditional Greek food for a good price, it is also a very nicely decorated place. Would definitely recommend this if you're looking for good local food.

We visited here after looking at the menu during the day and seeing that you can chose your own meze dishes. Good choices including plenty of veggie ones, and as many or as few as you want. Staff were great, friendly and funny. We had dips and pitta bread and salad, which they served as a starter. I chose ribs,... More

We had walked past this restaurant every day and decided to try it one evening as it was always busy. We were quickly seated. Ordered sparkling water for the table. It was served but the lime in the glasses had been chopped with onions, we were assuming as this was all we could taste. We notified the waiter who was... 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.
