We attended Mandra Tavern twice during our stay in Paphos and on both occasions, the service and food were of excellent quality. The service was appropriately good-humoured and professional. The surroundings and settings were comfortable with a great traditional ambience. The food was the best...we had during our stay in Paphos. On my first visit there I sampled the swordfish steak which can be difficult to get right, but it was cooked to perfection, but I have to say the huge pork chop I had on my second visit, was the best meal I had during my week's stay in Paphos (And we went to some good restaurants). The restaurant, staff and food (Huge pork chop) come highly recommended :)More

The service was excellent. Sense of humour is served as soon as you arrive. We sat at the entrance the first time we came where we shared a hummus with pitta starter and because the knew I was vegan they gave me thahini dip aswell....Hubby had mixed souvlaki while I had the first vegan moussaka ever. Served with a salad this tasted amazing. We could not eat another thing. €15.50 for moussaka but tbh it was so worth it. The following evening we had to come back. I ate the plant based meatballs mega pitta meal. This was out of this world. Hubby had meat moussaka which he said was the best he had tasted since we have been here (18days). May come back tomorrow and check out their homemade vegan burger. Wonderful service in nice location away from frontMore

Friendly service and excellent food served in a traditional taverna-style setting. Having eaten at a number of other restaurants in our 2 visits to Paphos, this was the best we have found. It was our first but definitely not last visit to Mandra!

Excellent authentic Cypriot cuisine. Enjoyed our meals at the Mandra Tavern one of our best dinners of the holiday. Also Excellent value for money. Just off the beaten track on Dionysou Street, well worth a visit. We had dips with pitta to start, Kleftiko and...Moussaka for mains and tried Brandy pudding for desert (similar to Christmas Pudding) We walked in without a booking just before sunset and as it became dark place was packed.More

Visited this restaurant with my family during our trip to Paphos. We ordered the meze option - the portions are substantial so make sure you are VERY hungry if you go for this option. Overall the food was delicious though the meats course was a...bit of a disappointment as it was a bit on the dry side for my taste. The service was excellent though and the waiters were attentive and friendly. The place seems to be very popular so I suggest booking a table beforehand. We were a walk-in and had to wait around 30 minutes for a table to free up as it was packed!More

I came to eat here by myself when it was still quiet at 20:30. The staff was very friendly and gave me good advice on their whines. They mostly (or only) serve local whines which are very good. I had a local starter, main and...an international desert which were al very good. Well cooked along with the friendly service of the somewhat older waiters. After my starter things got really busy and i was impressed by how the waiters and waitresses served everyone while making jokes and small talk.More

I’ve only had the Meat Meze and that was 20 euros per person I’m guessing the fish will be a similar price
