It's definitely worth going to. It's a plesant authentic feel compared to the surrounding restaurants and the people are truly lovely. Portions are generous and the cheep local wine is very good. Food was a bit below par but doesn't take away from the whole experience.

As many said before it is a very nice atmosphere and place. They are friendly ( too friendly? Every guest is a big friend.....). The food was not at all so good as others mentioned . We ordered Squid (small baby octopussy but got only Calamaris because they had no Squid. Why don't say that??). The calamaris was good. I... More

We saw this restaurant when we were in Paphos in February but it was closed over the winter so we were keen to try it on our visit in August and are so glad that we did. What a lovely little restaurant!! It isn't in the most obvious of places but that is what makes it lovely. The owners are... More

This is by far the best restaurant in Paphos. We have been going for years and love the place, please do not be put off by people who do not understand that this is a traditional Greek/Cypriot restaurant and want "chicken nuggets". My wife's birthday and our anniversary were spent in this hidden gem even though we were half board... More

Good traditional food in a local taverna with extremely welcoming hosts. Happy to show us the wood burning oven and the lamb and baked marrow dish that had been cooking during the day - both were delicious. Highly recommended for the general experience of the evening.

Good points - the restaurant is a little out of the way so nice and quiet, the waiters were big personalities, food was cheap and portion size was large. Bad points - the quality of the food and how it was cooked, sorry to say one of the worst meals I've had in years. The starter I had was a... More

Had a super dinner consisting of an eight course Greek mezzi which was of the best quality. However, the meal was much enhanced by the care and attention given to diners by the owner and waiters. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

Down an alley on the road into the harbour is this traditional restaurant specialising in Cypriot food since (apparently) mid 1980's. It has a secluded outside seating area with a water fountain, lemon trees and nice brick work. You don't realise you are only 50m from the main road. We had a Meze and the food was almost endless, with... More
