We love this restaurant . We stayed in a wonderful villa in Secret Valley and Kouklia Village centre was just 5 minutes drive away. The food , service and atmosphere is wonderful. We stayed at Villa Venus in Secret Valley with Simila-Cyprus.com and rented a car via PafosRentaCar.com. The whole holiday was fantastic and we love Gabriels Taverna and Kouklia... More

We visited the pretty village of Kouklia today in Cyprus and had lunch in Gabriel's Taverna situated in the heart of this pretty village. My husband had garlic prawns and I had grilled chicken souvlaki with pitta bread and salad. Both meals were delicious.

Have been to Gabriel's many,many times.I wonder why! Maybe it has something to do with the food,the owner and his family,the staff,the general atmosphere and of course the live music on Wednesday's,all brilliant.

This is the best restaurant for miles, Gabriel remembered us from last year and it was like meeting an old friend. A must if you are visiting this area. The Max grill went down a treat. Thanks Gabriel.

We visit this area of Cyprus regularly & Gabriels is a "must go to" every time we stay , the staff remember us each year we return. Fantastic food every time & very reasonably priced. The staff are very welcoming each time & very accommodating. We can highly recommend Gabriels , you will not be disappointed.

We ate here on Boxing Day and had the traditional buffet. There is a variety of food, ranging from moussaka to suckling pig to stifado (and much more). All of it is excellent and the staff is very kind. Great value as well!
