“Fantastic Cypriot tavern!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2012

First of all, there is a spelling mistake here on Trip Advisor - the restaurant name is "Piatsa Greka". You'll then be able to find the website of the restaurant online if you want to research further.

This is a great little Cypriot taverna, on Tombs of the Kings Road, beside the Bank of Cyprus. During 3 visits over a 2-week period we enjoyed almost almost all of their starters (particularly enjoying the mixed dips, the pate and the garlic mushrooms) and many of their main courses including the beef stifado, lamb kleftiko, dolmades (stuffed vine leaves) and - best of all - the suckling pig. The menu also includes other, non-Cypriot, food if you prefer.

The owner is also the front-of-house man, the waiter and the chef! He is engaging and good fun and enjoys a good chat. Prices are very competitive, portions are extremely generous and the food is great.

What more could you ask for?

“Not for us!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2012

We ate at the Piatsa Greka Taverna on our first night in Paphos, we stopped to look at the menu and we were basically pressured to enter but thought we would give it a try. The manager seemed rushed when taking our drinks and food order however it was quite busy. We ordered a garlic bread to share for the starter but were told we HAD to also order the salad for starter as well because one of our party was a vegetarian! Once the starters arrived the manager said "that's it!" we didn't expect anything other than our order! Before we had finished our starters the plates were pushed away by the manager and our main course was unceremoniously dumped infront of us again with the "that's it" comment. The presentation of the vegetarian meal was terrible, the moussaka looked like it had been dropped on the plate! There were no vegetables served with it and the plate was dirty underneath. After we had eaten the meal the manager asked if we wanted dessert but we said no thank you as we had been disappointed with the food we had already eaten. Then to add to the experience further when we asked for the bill the manager wrote down a few prices on a piece of paper and told us 34 € 50, he left us for fifteen minutes then when he noticed we had 40 € in our hands the price suddenly changed to 39 €! After a firm conversation he remembered the original price, we paid and left never to return!
