“Great food, friendly people”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

We have tried this restaurant after a friend recommended it to us as one of the best in town and we were more than pleased to have a go at it. The staff were really friendly and patient with our questions about the dishes. Food was well cooked and all 4 dishes we ordered were delicious. Money wise not the cheapest but taking into consideration the quality, service and size of the portions definitely great value for money. We will be back to try the steaks

“Best Restaurant in Paphos”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

A local bar owner told us to use this restaurant and what a find. Thursday Night was very special as on that night they cook roast suckling pig and it was delicious. We got talking to a family on next table and they told us if we returned to have steaks as they were the best in Cyprus. 2 nights later we returned and had steaks, best steak I have had for a long time and cooked to perfection. Our host was very attentive and looked after us very well on both visits.

“You gotta eat here”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

With the plethora of restaurants + cafes around the harbour, it is always a difficult decision selecting where to eat. We had dinner here one night, after spending a few minutes menu hopping – a lady eating at the restaurant overheard us in conversation asking the inevitable question “Should we eat here?” and willingly recommended the place that their food was really good (based on what she was eating). It was it a wise decision to take her recommendation. As I am always one to sample the local dishes, I had the dolmades which were unbelievably delightful + filling. The simple comforting home made vine leaves+rice+minced meat+spice mix was just what was required. The restaurant was full with locals as well which is always a great heads up. You gotta eat here, I’d recommend dining here whenever the opportunity arises. Very casual dining option with good food.

“Excellent”
Reviewed November 23, 2013 via mobile

My son and I ate here twice, each time we chose differently and all four dishes were excellent! The staff were very attentive and the atmosphere was really good! It was obvious the other clients had been before and some regularly. Not the cheapest but certainly value for money!!
