“Fantastic food, great service”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

We went to the Colosseum on the last night of our holiday and wished we'd gone there before. We opted for the set menu at €12.99 for a 3 course meal with a glass of wine. There were about 5 choices for each course. The food was delicious and hot dishes were piping hot. The starters we chose of chicken liver pate and lasagne were lovely. The highlight of my meal was the main course of calves liver. It was cooked to perfection - soft and pink on the inside served with a delicious sauce and veg. My husband had the herb crusted pork which he thoroughly enjoyed. We both chose panna cotta with berries for dessert, which was very light and with just the right wobble!! The service was good with a reasonable time between courses. The wine was OK. One of the better house red wines we had during our 2 week stay. We ordered a bottle, on top of the glasses served as part of the meal, the price was a fairly reasonable €15. We then had liqueurs at the end of our meal, which were very large measures. At the end of the evening, even though we were the last 2 customers left in the restaurant, we didn't feel under pressure to finish up and leave. If we ever go back to Paphos we will definitely head straight back to this restaurant. All in all probably
one of the best, if not the best meal we had in our 2 weeks in Paphos, and great value for money.

“Fantastic steak and great service”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

This was our first visit to the Colosseum, and we were very impressed by the quality of the service and food. The fillet steak was some of the best we've ever had, and we all ski a lot as a group in France the home of great food and this was as good as any we've eaten in! If you want good food and service you won't be disappointed with this restaurant, we will be back next year.

“Lovely food, reasonable price!”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

We've visited the Colosseum twice in the last week as its close to our hotel. The set menu is extremely good value, for a three course meal with wine for just under €13. The food us good quality, and cooked well. The chicken with sundried tomato from the set menu is delicious and my partner enjoyed his T Bone steak which cost €12.50. Its Much better than some other restaurants we've eaten at during this holiday! Both times we've been there its been very quiet, probably because its upstairs and they don't have someone standing outside cajoling people in. Another bonus is the breeze! As its upstairs there's a slight breeze which is a relief in July!

“Excellant food at a reasonable price”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

We had been previously and had the a la carte menu on a Daily Deal. the food and service was very good and we noticed they also did a set menu. So we visited again for the set menu, which comprised of several options for starters, main course and sweets and included a glass of wine or I believe a bottle if there were four people. Although basically an Italian Restaurant, I am not a pasta fan, there was a good range of choice. I chose the mushrooms stuffed with shrimps to start and a lamb shank to follow with panna cotta to finish. All for 12 Euros and a filter coffee at 2 Euros. The presentation, food and service was excellent and I can certainly recommend it. But be aware that it is a roof restaurant up stairs but worth the climb for my wife and I, both with dodgy knees.
