“Fine dining with a great view”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

Our first visit here revealed a fairly quiet restaurant with a great view over Paphos. Dinner price included starters and sweet and although a buffet was available, we ate a la carte.
Good selection of dips for starters with salad and excellent tempura vegetables with a sweet chilli sauce. I opted for the pork sirloin (very tasty) whilst my wife chose an incredibly rich seven cheese ravioli. All were extremely well presented with attentive service throughout.
Wine was a little on the pricey side (but aren't they all?) but it was a newer Greek wine that we hadn't tried before which was very palatable. A few more tables had filled up by the time we left.We will certainly return.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

Had been to this Restaurant for lunch many times and it now also opens for dinner. The location is in the center of Paphos on the 5th floor of a office building so it looks very dark and quiet as you arrive at the lift. Once in the restaurant you have a good view over the city.
The menue offers a number of Mains and once you have ordered your choice of main the waiter brings a number of starters all included in the price of the main.
The starters consisted of a few dips, some deep fried Ved with a sweet/hot sauce, salad and a few other items. Very enjoyable and plenty. Then came our Main course. I had the Lamb Shank and is was very good. One of our guests had frilled Salmon and it looked superb and one guest had Duck confit and that was also excellent. The restaurant was very quiet but the food and view superb. I will be back soon. Thanks for a very enjoyable dinner

“Elegant food at taverna prices...”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

Very good experience ...the restaurant is modern, stylish with lovely views of Paphos. Especially effective at sunset. Service is polished and attentive. The concept is that one selects only the main course. Starters : small selection of delicious appetizers, a salad and tempura vegetables with sweet chilly sauce was offered on the night we visited. Main course consists of about 8 meals including, duck, chicken, salmon, lamb etc...Desert is a selection of mini creations, in our case a tiny ice cream, a mini apple turnover and a chocolate and walnut cake with a lovely sauce. The main course prices range from 17 - 20 Euro. We had 3 lamb shanks, one duck confit end a salmon dish - divine.... The presentation of food is very good and the chef creates truly superb meals. Our delicious, beautifully and efficiently served meal for 5 including a glass of white wine, a bottle of red wine, 2 bottles of water and 5 coffees came to 120 Euros . A bargain... as much as a regular taverna meal.

“Watch where you sit”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Nice place, comfortable, good service and food, Only thing that spoilt it for me was the glass roof which was open. I moved three times but still could not get out of the sun

“ENJOYABLE FOOD BUT LACKING ATMOSPHERE”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

I believe this restaurant opened 18 months/2 years ago but we only very recently became aware of its existence and decided to give it a try. We opted for an evening meal and found the restaurant itself to be well appointed, with views over the town and the sea, and we enjoyed a nice sunset whilst eating. Although it was "Pasta Night" we opted instead for the A La Carte menu, which does not offer choices for appetizers or desserts. These were instead produced as "Chefs Specials" and were very nice. The main meals, for us duck and beef, were tasty and fairly substantial. As it was a special occasion we chose an imported wine rather than local, which no doubt was the main reason for the overall cost being somewhat higher than we are used to paying in Paphos, but overall we considered that we received good value. The service was good and the staff were friendly. The only criticism that we had was that the restaurant was virtually empty and thus there was a distinct lack of atmosphere, which was a shame.
