“Fantastic food and amazing family couldn't of asked for anything better they made my wedding day so special”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

I recently got married on the 22nd October 2013 and we had our wedding reception at the windmill all organised by the wonderful Nancy! We had a wonderful time Nancy is amazing she organised everything for us from the beautiful table decorations transport Dj and Greek dancers we all had a fantastic time. The food was out of this world and there was so much of it! I had three vegetarian guests and they had a vegetarian platter each after all the starters he he and said it was the best they had ever tasted the rest of us had the BBQ meze and it was absolutely gorgeous and there was lots of it. The atmosphere at the windmill is lovely all the other guests at the restaurant who were there just having a lovely meal joined it our celebrations and made are day even better everyone is so friendly and nancy can't do enough to help you, our children loved it because there was lots of colouring books and things to keep them entertained while we finished our meal. I would recommend the windmill to everyone for wedding receptions or just for a lovely meal and brilliant hospitality I can't wait to go back and visit again and can't thank nancy enough for making our wedding day so special :-)

“Nancy is great. Food is standard.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

On our search for good meze in Paphos took us to the Windmill Restaurant.

The meze came in 1x2 dishes (two meatballs, two peppers, two wine leaves, etc.) Often I find myself liking 1-2 meze dishes better than the others so the 1x2 was not working that much for me. All in all the meze was a mix between average and good, but nothing WOW.
The service was slow, both during the delivery of the meze and afterwards (busy night). I was all dried out waiting forever to order a drink and about to leave to go somewhere else, but then came Nancy. She asked about the food and took the time to talk to us. I got my drink and was suddenly in a much better mood so we stayed for a bottle of wine after we had finished our food.

Nancy lifted the experience of this restaurant so if you don't get to meet Nancy maybe the experience will not be that good for you.

“Best food in Paphos- great for veggies too!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

We spotted this restaurant after reading the reviews here on Tripadvisor, so glad we went to try for ourselves!

We were met by Charlie, the owners son. I explained that my partner is vegetarian, it's not always easy to find a restaurant that can cater for veggies. Charlie explained the menu in detail and pointed out the many options available, all of which sounded fantastic (I opted for the tasty lamb!)

To sum up, the food was delicious and reasonably priced. We were made to feel welcome and glad we ventured out from the free hotel buffet to experience some authentic Cypriot cuisine as its very best in this family run, warm and friendly taverna. We will return and cannot recommend this restaurant enough.

“Fabulous meze meal with warmest of welcomes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013 via mobile

Looking for a good place to have meze in Paphos we used tripadvisor to find the Windmill.
It was fairly busy when we were there, but this didn't stop our food arriving promptly. We ordered the fish meze, all dishes were explained by friendly and informative staff (family owned-run place) and all good was freshly prepared with a nice mix of dishes.

A good meal and reasonably priced - would go again
