Our family of four ate at Michael's Tavern during our recent stay in Paphos and our experience was very mixed. We received a very warm welcome and the initial service was prompt but we found the menu options to be quite limited. The complimentary pitta with garlic butter was very nice and the starters were fine but required little culinary skill to prepare. The main courses were variable with the traditional local dishes faring better than the steaks in sauces which were both over cooked to how we ordered them. The service then seemed to evaporate as the evening wound down and the staff began to converse with various guests whilst being oblivious to the needs of others. We found it necessary to go over to a member of staff who was chatting and ask for a dessert menu and the creme brulee which we ordered was much more akin to creme caramel when it arrived.
Perhaps a "poor" rating is a little harsh but we failed to see how this restaurant can be ranked so highly. We ate here early in our stay so that we could probably return for my wife's birthday. We didn't.
