“Slipping Standards”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

One of our favourite restaurants. We had a voucher from daily deals, worth getting because you get a 40 euro voucher for 20 euros. We booked a table for Saturday evening as there is normally live entertainment included. The service was poor and it was almost one hour from arriving before our starters arrived which were OK. The wine list has deteriorated, we chose a Chilean Sauvignon Blanc which was 22 euros and was frankly tasteless.
The main courses arrived, I had chosen herb crust pork fillet cooked in a mustard sauce, the meat was dry and sauce was a dab of congealed mustard, the meal was accompanied with a potato croquette and carrots. All in all very disappointing and certainly not worth the drive to Paphos.

“should visit more often”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

Have eaten here several times and only once had a problem, which was the chefs fault, to which he personally came out and apologised and put the matter right. The food has always been very good. Presentation excellent. nice staff and not bad prices. It is a nice restaurant that we have only lacked going back to because of so many new ones opening and wanting to try different ones out.

“Christmas Eve Special”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2012 via mobile

Faultless dinner from the Xmas Eve value menu and was only €15!!! Amazing quality and value. We had prawn cocktail, spicy pumpkin soup and homemade ravioli. Followed by lamb shank, and calf liver. Creme brulee dessert was delicious. The wine list is exceptional and the live music from the resident Singer/Pianist completes the perfect dinner experience. Thanks

“Great food & atmostphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

Nicos produces some fantastic food and even cooked my favorite meal when they had removed it from the menu, so great customer service.

Alona runs the front of house with great efficiency & with a smile not to be missed.

Overall one of the few restaurants we visit 3 or 4 times each holiday & they never let us down.
