We have enjoyed our several visits to the fine restaurant over recent years and we disappointed to see when we visited this year that it has closed down. We were told by another tourist that they were planning to reopen somewhere else in Paphos.

Whilst in Paphos last week, I went round to this place as I had so enjoyed it last time; the tables and chairs were stacked up outside (and the following day were gone!), kitchen fixtures and equipment were in the lane at the side and on Thursday (12th May 2016) the big sign on the roof was taken down. It's... More

Love this restaurant and for the last few years we have eaten there several times on our 2 week holiday to Paphos. Staff are the best, food is fantastic and hospitality is second to none. Our little boy would eat there every night - Steph even remembers his name year in year out. We are back in August so will... More

One of our favourite places to eat , but sadly when we visited it las night it was closed . Not just closed but from what we could see through the windows completely stripped our. Nothing inside but an empty shell . Such a shame for this to happen . Doesn't look like a refurbishment either

Ate here twice during our 6 night stay in Paphos and was very impressed-both by the hospitality of Steph and the quality of his cooking. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant, however, be prepare to wait for your food if the place is busy.

We went as a result of the TA rating. We discovered literally a one man band because it was early season - just the owner doing everything and struggling with 6 customers. He tried to cope, but not very successfully. Maybe better as the season progresses and staff employed - but we wouldn't return.

Nice restaurant with excellent food. Have now been a few times and it just gets better. The duck and lamb dishes are particularly good. Not too expensive and worth every penny. Can't recommend highly enough
