You need to park in the parking space before the Square.You can drive to the Village 15min from Paphos or if you don’t have a car you can use bus 631 from the bus station in Kato Paphos. You can ask the driver to stop at Kouklia, from the bus stop is only 5 min walk if problem give us a call and will help you.

This place is a must visit when in paphos, the food is fantastic! The owner and his wife, are just the right level of friendly and welcoming! Which makes for a perfect evening! This place is that good that the locals eat there too!
We have been there 3 times in one week, the last meal was this evening and we had the meze, which I highly recommend as you can taste so many beautiful dishes!! (If you can fit it all in!)
Food is excellent value for money here, it really is an unmissable restaurant to sample proper local cuisine, a great atmosphere & at reasonable prices! We will certainly come back on our next visit to Cyprus :-)

Gabriel's Restaurant exceeded all expectations for a large group. We helped organize a local walk with a Taverna Lunch at the end. Gabriel's was our favourite choice as we have always enjoyed the terrific food and friendly service.

Our group descended upon the Restaurant tired, hungry and thirsty. With pleasant efficiency, Sophia and Gabriel set to filling drink orders and making sure all were quickly cared for. Once seated, we were treated to a steady stream of delicious Cypriot Meze. Salads, Holloumi cheese, Moussaka, Steifado, Sheftalia, Pork Kebob, chicken along with salads, and dips to satiate the most discerning appetites. There were three requests for 'vegetarian - fish only' meals that came in perfect timing and were reported as remarkable.

The most impressive detail was that this small family run Taverna could host so many (40 plus) folks in such a smooth and steady manner, while keeping the food coming fresh and abundant at all times.

We find this our favourite Taverna and Kouklia is blessed to have Gabriel's open all year round. Don't miss the opportunity to drop by or call to book a large group. They are up to the task.

We spent our last night in Gabriel's as a family as we are leaving the island.
First class service, nothing too much trouble and food excellent.
We have lived in Secret Valley for over a year and visited Gabrjels a number of times.. Never disappointed. Thoroughly recommend it.

We came here as a family group of 10 but it was the third visit in less than 3 weeks for some of the party. They were welcomed warmly by the owners who were very friendly and helpful and appreciated their return visit. We all shared starters of village salad (bit stingy with the feta cheese) and dips, olives and pitta bread. The bread and houmous were very good and extra bread was provided without having to ask.
My wife ordered vegetarian moussaka which she was very impressed with and I had beef stifado which was mouth-meltingly marvellous! The chicken kebabs went down very well with the children. Throughout the meal Gabriel frequently visited the table to chat and check everything was ok. In some places this can feel excessive but it really didn't here.
Two of our party were returning home that evening and it was a very convenient place to stop on the way to the airport. The restaurant is situated in a charming little village square which almost looks like a film set of a perfect Cypriot village. The drinks were also very reasonably priced.
