This is a fabulous little gem of a restaurant, run by two wonderful gentlemen. We discovered this restaurant three years ago and our only disappointment was we hadn't discovered it a lot of years earlier. I always tend to have the days special and my husband usually picks of the menu, all the food we have eve had there has... More

Atmosphere: fantastic. The restaurant is situated off the road in a bit of a courtyard. There are two very cheerful older men who seem to run the place, and everyone I encountered was very welcoming. Service: quick. Drinks came fast, and were followed by a basket of hot toasted bread accompanied by a copious amount of garlic butter. Food: My... More

Yet another great evening at Mother's Restaurant! So well looked after again by Costas and Sideris (Sorry if I've spelt that wrong!). These guys really do make you feel welcome, nothing is too much trouble and the food is amazing. Lovely setting away from the mayhem of the harbour offering a traditional taverna feel and very special Cypriot hospitality. It's... More

Finding the way to Mother's Restaurant is, one imagines, not dissimilar to finding the way through the wardrobe to Narnia. A journey through an unassuming archway leads to vibrant greenery, a moment of doubt and after hearing the laughter generated by the two Mr. Tumnus-like gentlemen running the show. In terms of decor there is a kind of 70's package... More

This restaurant is only situated about 200 metres from the harbour and yet at night especially you would believe that you are dining in a restaurant high in the hills of a Cypriot village. The two brothers who run the restaurant immediately make you feel at home with their warmth of welcome and humour. One of the oldest restaurants in... More

We visited Mother's after reading other reviews on Tripadvisor. It was tucked away in a little courtyard area just off a road near to the bus station. One of our main reasons for visiting was that it did traditional cooking in the clay oven and in particular lamb kleftiko as a special on a Tuesday evening. We visited 3 times... More

We had difficulty finding "Mothers" evidently according to one of the regular dinners Costa the owner was told to remove the restaurants sign by the Mayor (municipality). Why hide this gem of a restaurant? We had lamb from the clay oven that was to die for. #Replace the sign

We couldn't understand how others enjoyed the food so much We had some stuffed vegetables and sliced meat with mushrooms which was tasty but nothing special. For starters we had a salad and garlic mushrooms -was a disappointment. No air conditioning! . The kids serving was extremely small!
