We visited as a group of 5, with friends who had dined here before, and recommended it. Service was polite and very friendly. This restaurant does a Meze with a difference, no more dishes you don't like, and too much of it, you can make your own meze from a big choice of dishes on the menu, like a Spanish... More

On our visit this Restaurant was fairly busy, our food arrived on a cast iron plate that was cold, consequently the food was cold, we when it was possible complained and received an apology from the owner, he did not charge us for the meal but really it was a bit late to go and eat elsewhere, we were told...

Just 2 mins off of the main drag is Mandra. This is the 2nd time I'd visited and was worried that it wouldn't be as good this time around. It wasn't, it was even better! If you want quality Cypriot/Greek food in very pleasant surroundings then try Mandra. I promise that you won't be sorry. Also the funny and helpful... More

We have been to Crypus for 19 years and have by passed this restrautant . We were taken there by some friends and enjoyed an afternoon meal. The service and food was first class, we will make this our first stop when we return to Paphos.

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.
