We held our wedding reception here a week ago and we'd booked traditional Cyprus Meze. The food was amazing amd just kept coming. Glasses were kept topped up.The staff were so attentive throughout the evening and couldn't do enough for us. Nothing was too much trouble, even researching the recipe of and making my husbands favourite cocktail. The restaurant itself... More

The Taverna is situated in a side street near Alexander the Great hotel. We wanted to find typical Cypriot Taverna's and we weren't diasppointed. The Taverna is family run and all the staff were friendly and helpful. We ordered a couple of typical dishes which were tasty and the wine was also lovely. The setting was great and the choice...

We found this place by accident having nearly gone down a one way street. There was parking on some unused ground at the other side of the road about 50 yards away. We visited this place twice, the second time we had a Meze which was truly fantastic. The quality of the authentic food was unquestionable and all in our... More

Great food, great family, and all a taverna should be - alas not visited recently but its a home from home for me working with my Cypriot family in England the only time in Cyprus I feel homesick is when I'm here & I mean that in a good way!!

Visited this place twice whilst staying at Limnaria Gardens. The staff are very welcoming & we enjoyed both the meals we had there. I think the Mezze could be a little more interesting though. There was plenty of food but other Mezze we have had have had small tastes of Stifado & other Cypriot dishes & less barbequed chicken &... More

It's been 6 years since we last stayed at Limnaria Gardens (3 mins walk away) and we were concerned the local restaurants might have changed. Michael's is still just as lovely and relaxed as ever. It's a true family restaurant with delicious lamb, beef, chicken, mezes etc. We ate here 3 times during our week - the atmosphere and staff... More

What a great find, across the wooden bridge from Limnaria Gardens in Paphos Gardens. Excellent food and lovely atmosphere. I would eat here rather than walking into town. They welcomed us for an early dinner before we went for our flight. You must try
