This is a family run restaurant in the center of Kouklia which is a 10 minute drive from Aphrodite Hills and a bit farther from Pafos. If you are looking for a great traditional Cyprus taverna, this is a great option. They close off the main street into Kouklia at night so you can sit outside-a neighboring bar had live... More

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Cyprus. The food is traditional, but they also serve some vegetarian dishes and Italian dishes. There is also a children's menu. The food is delicious and the staff will substitute sides for you, i.e. if you don't want chips. The staff are also lovely and very attentive, especially Maria! We have been... More

Came here as a group of 6 on a Monday evening. A bottle of water we hadn't ordered was placed in our table, nice gesture but then you are charged for it in the bill (cheeky). A couple of items on menu not available. All of our dishes were nice, but you struggle to get more drinks as no one... More

Ate here last night, and enjoyed the meze. Lovely food, lots of choice and massive portions! (do ask to take leftovers home) The square in town was closed to traffic, and it was a very pleasant environment.

Just had the best traditional Cypriot evening ever. The food was a perfect 3 course buffet with something for everyone. The venue was fantastic and Maria added by her team was the perfect hostess. With the village square closed to traffic it was great to see the traditional dancers mixing with the guests from all the bars. Will be visiting... More

Maria, the owner, did it once again and we had a great dinner! It was an utterly busy night with a Cyprus play at the Kouklia square and many guests too but despite these our dinner was perfect and service flawless. We've been returning at this place for some years now and we are every time glad to have the... More
