Charming location , but the thing that put this place on the map for us was that it served the most soft , delicious, light ( not rubbery !) Halloumi we have ever eaten .Never in our lives have we tasted such superb halloumi ....It is worth a visit here just to sample it . An incredible food memoryMore

We were in the area and stopped one day for lunch...then we returned the following day for dinner....we liked it a lot! It is a very pleasant family run taverna with lots of options, including lots of vegetarian and vegan dishes. We sampled several and...they were all really tasty. The service is superb, they even recognized us and we were greeted with a friendly smile. The dips were great and my favourite was the Cypriot ravioli, highly recommended. They have a good wine list and the atmosphere is very welcoming. If you are in the area, just go and enjoy it!More

We love it here. The souvla on Sunday was gorgeous. The lamb was the best I’ve had so far in Cyprus. Warning, if you don’t reserve it or get there quick enough on a Sunday, it will sell out! Wine is delicious-we love the orange...wine that they sell. We also love the staff-funny and friendly and always willing to accommodate. The owner is renowned for his wine knowledge too.More

We had 2 meals here on our last holiday to Pissouri and both were great. It is located in the main square and all the food is lovely, with the service being good as well. The spare ribs I tried last night were exceptional, it...was difficult eating them all at the time, but they placed my leftovers in a box so I could have them later. We therefore would recommend a visit here.More

We had drinks and meals here throughout our stay in Pissouri. This is a quality Taverna , the management and staff are amazing. Pre booking is recommended as this is a popular place to experience Pissouri and all it has to offer.

Came here as part of an excursion offered by our cruise ship. It was a lovely village and a beautiful outdoor dining restaurant. They brought out various shared family-style platters of food and beverages. The tzatziki was delicious, as were the potatoes, salad, and meat...platter. Staff was friendly and efficient. We must have had two or three tour busses of people in there. The inside of the restaurant was open-air to the outside. Lastly, bathrooms were clean.More

Lovely setting in the village square. Great sitting outside with a really nice glass of house wine and a cold beer. And the food was tremendous. Both of us are vegans and enjoyed an amazing salad and soup to start; and the spinach pie and...‘tourlou tourlou’. Very reasonable prices too. Just over 40 euros for two courses each and a couple of drinks each. We are staying in Paphos near some of the tourist traps but was well-worth jumping in the car and spending day on beach here and then heading up to the old square for this gem. Would absolutely make a special effort to come here again.More

Another outstanding evening at this fabulous restaurant. A great selection of local and international dishes all presented with a little quirk that makes them stand out compared to other places in Pissouri. The vegan choices are creative and the selection is well put together, it...is unusual to see so many options on a menu. On this occasion I had the seafood orzotto, one of the specials on offer, it was superb, beautifully combined ingredients and perfectly cooked. My husband had the meat mousakka which was full of flavour and a good size portion accompanied by a Greek salad lightly flavoured with dried mint. We shared a rocket salad as a starter which again had a well thought out and unusual combination of ingredients including pastalaki and air dried ham, delicious! The wine list is the most comprehensive in the village and expert advice is on hand from Haris to suggest which bottle would best suit your menu choices. Overall a fine dining experience in the ambience of the village square, you can book with the confidence that you will not be disappointed.More

The worse meal in Cprus. 3 out of 5 of our meals we didn't eat. This is not an authentic Cypriot cuisine nor an authentic Taverna.

Something happened to this restaurant and I don't know what. The food at toady's lunch was truly horrible. I ate at O Vrakas quite a few times over the years. It was always a good experience. But this February I ate their halloumi which was...brought to me practically raw and hard as rock. But at least the hummus and tahini were still good. Today however I ordered hummus and tahini again and they were very sour. Like store bought sour hummus is. The lady tried to convince me it's the same as always but it definitely wasn't. the hummus, the tahini and the eggplant spread all tasted the same. Very very sour. Then they brought me my goat cheese Pissouri salad. The goat cheese was completely dry and hard. Not soft and juicy like it usually is. Completely inedible. The salad itself was too sour. Tasted similar to the spreads from before. Sour like vinegar or something similar. I think this was sadly my last visit to O Vrakas.More

Depends on how cool the evening is, we sat out side about mid way between the pavement and the door.
