Very good food. Atmosphere and food are fantastic! Brothers are meeting you directly near the entrance. It feels like you know that guys for a long time. The place is distanted from touristic routes and very quiet. For me it is a great advantage.

We found Mothers half way through our 2 week holiday and then didnt go any where else. The welcome and the service is wonderful, genuine, friendly and always cheerful and we were made to feel like family every time we went. The traditional cypriot dishes were all lovely, as were the homemade soup of the day and the daily special from the clay oven. The portions are very generous, so you will never leave feeling hungry! My other half ordered fillet rossini on his birthday and that was also beautiful, perfectly cooked and great quality steak. Prices are very reasonable, we usually spent 35 to 40 euros for 2 starters, 2 mains, drinks and a pudding. When we go back to Paphos we will definitely be back at Mothers!

This place may look slightly run down. The food may come in on tin platters without that fancy presentation. But when you take your first bite - ah, the divinity. This is old school home cooking at its absolute best - slow food made from scratch with care and attention to detail. No frills needed. Mother's restaurant is not only worth the visit and not only worth the detour into the back alley where it's situated. It's worth your entire trip to Cyprus.

Location and Atmosphere

Mother's Restaurant is in the heart of Touristic Paphos, though far enough and just well enough hidden to not disappear in between of all the hyper-touristic places where they milk out the foreigners.

Mother's Restaurant at first sight looks a little bit out of date, though it's part of the authenticity and once you look past the furniture and decoration you discover the wonderful side of this place. Costas, the owner is an attraction on his own. He's friendly and very welcoming to everyone that arrives, makes time for every single one of his guests and is proud of his business and the food they serve! He's a great man who enjoys every moment in his restaurant. He makes you really feel at home at Mother's Restaurant.


The food was just great, I several times took the suggestion of the day, which is always a traditional Cypriot dish prepared in the clay oven. Costas happily invites you to go taking a look when he takes out the dish from the oven. We also ate the day soup once, which was excellent as well. Costas always serves his dishes with a nice basket of home made bread. We once ate the Meze and that's an absolute must do when you visit the restaurant.

We never payed over 35 Euro's for starters, main and drinks for two people.


When you're in Paphos, save yourself the effort to go looking for a place to enjoy typical food in Cyrpus, just make sure you have a map of Paphos where you can point out Mother's Restaurant, find the place and go in. Enjoy the hospitality of Costas and the great food and you'll never feel the need to go anywhere else during your stay in Paphos!
