Shopping at the nearby market, so charged our batteries with a breakfast and drink at Scorpios. Jen enjoyed the Continental, whilst I had the 'Village Breakfast'. It included local sausage, kebab, haloumi, cucumber, onion, rocket, olives & chips. Recommended.

This tavern is located in Paphos town, very central and a stone's throw away from the market. So a touristy location which - in our experience - makes it very hit or miss whether you get quality traditional food or the tourist fare of fried breakfasts and too many frozen chips. Our experience at Tavern Scorpios was excellent, home cooked, Cypriot cuisine.

We were welcomed by a friendly face and quickly had a refreshing fresh orange juice in front of us. We were given the menus and then the manager went through various local dishes that they had cooked from scratch that morning; 3 meat dishes and 2 vegetarian dishes. He came up with suggested accompaniments and explained what the Cypriots would have with each dish.

We decided on the lamb stew with okra and black eyed beans with spinach and a tuna side dish. A simple salad (tomato, onion, cucumber, rocket, lime, pickled celery and olives) was complimentary as was bread. We returned another lunch time and had the Afelia (pork dish) and moussaka. On both occasions, the food was delicious and we felt the bill represented very good value. We noticed a lot of repeat business from locals and expats alike. Well done Tavern Scorpios!

Found this by accident after visiting the market. Had one of the best lunches we'd had during our stay in paphos and so cheap. The quality of the food was great, the staff were very helpful and fun. We would have expected to pay a lot more than we did.
We enjoyed it so much we went back on a Saturday night where we had meze, though we had to book as Saturdays get very busy, ( the best meze we'd had in paphos) and were entertained with live greek music, and dancing. Again the staff couldn't do enough for us and the cost was a lot less than we'd paid for meals in the more popular parts of Paphos. The quality of the meze was top class, we actually had to ask them to stop bringing more dishes as we couldn't eat any more.
It really is worth taking a bus or taxi to this restaurant for the food, welcoming, and views during the day. We only wish we had discovered this years ago. Well worth a visit.

Taken here by my daughter who lives in Paphos, we loved the food, great meal for a small price! lovely views, very clean and pretty place.
Well known and respected in the town.
Staff so helpful, saw me stuggling to debone my fish and took it to kitchen and did it for me.
All our meals were just perfect.
