We searched for this restaurant after reading the reviews on this site. We finally found it amidst the roadworks which hopefully will be finished soon. We sopped and had a drink and had a very interesting chat with Vassos about the island and rhe history of the restaurant. We returned for a meal the following night. Stuffed vine leaves, Rack...

The roadworks have been going on for months all over town with seemingly no end in sight as deadline after deadline is missed. There is no way Paphos will be ready for the festival in 2017. Shame. However this restaurant continues to serve good food and is worth taking your life in your hands ( and a torch) to trek... More

Yes, I agree with all the other comments re current roadworks but this restaurant is a must. The husband and wife team are welcoming and the food is always delicious. An assorted array of bread accompanies the meal, along with tzatziki and olives. The spinach and feta cheese starter is wonderful, main course for me is usually fresh fish which... More

We arrived without a booking at 8pm on a Thursday evening and received a warm welcome. There was one other table of four persons in the restaurant, it was such a shame to see that the roadworks in the old town are having an impact on the business. Please don't let the roadworks put you off, it's really not that... More

Saying that it was well worth the hike and with the help of a few friendly Cypriots glad we went. Food was quite simply amazing. Husband and wife team we were well looked after Well... More

This is without doubt one of the best restaurants Paphos has to offer. Family run by a husband and wife team who are friendly and attentive. The food is mouth-wateringly excellent and beautifully presented. You do need to watch out for it though as it could easily be missed! Check your directions and wear sensible shoes whilst the roads are... More

Having heard good things about this restaurant from various friends, we visited it one evening. Despite having to negotiate the roadworks that are taking place throughout the old town, we arrived safely at our destination and were warmly met by the owner and his wife. We decided on the Meze and we were soon being plied with food that was... More
