Forty five discerning guests descended on Martikas Kitchen for lunch on 25th June for its first monthly gathering since COVID-19 lockdown measures eased. Despite placing maximum pressure on Graham, Martika and their small staff we were treated to an excellent lunch in relaxed airy surroundings with an excellent balcony view over lower Tala towards Coral Bay. The simple but inviting decor, scrupulously clean furnishings and table settings, were most inviting. The service was fast, friendly and efficient and the fare was of a very good standard for such a large service. Tala is in need of a fine dining experience and this venue is resolutely rising to the challenge and at a reasonable price. Moreover, they proved that they are extremely capable of catering for larger groups. Thank you Graham & Martika, I am sure we will be back as a group and in smaller numbers.

I’ve been to many restaurants in Cyprus over the years, none have ever matched up to the wonderful experience I had today at Martika’s Kitchen. Greeted by the very smiley Graham who ushered us out to the terrace, I felt like a friend rather than a customer. Our server was the friendly Yvonne who very patiently took our constantly edited order, she helped my Dad choose things he would eat and altered the menu to suit him, he was happy with the choices made. (Rare indeed!) There is such a vast choice of dishes to cater to every palate and I have to admit it was tough choosing. (I would recommend the duck on braised red cabbage though, heaven in my mouth!) We all loved our food, my Mum so much so she has booked her wedding anniversary dinner next month. The cost of the meal was so reasonable I feel like I should have paid more. I’d like to say a big thank you to Martika, your food is incredible. Can’t wait to come back and try something else. So…if you’re looking for somewhere to eat where the food is amazing, the staff attentive and the price is right, then head to Tala Village and eat at Martika’s Kitchen. You will agree, it is the best food you’ve had in years. Thanks again Martika and Graham. All the best, Laurie Steiner.

My wife and I enjoyed close to a superb luncheon offered by this very hard working and enterprising couple. We were part of a lunch party on the 27 June 2020 and staff ensured that our first post-severe lockdown was a success. The food really was good, in fact Really Good. So why only 4/5 rather than 5? Well, the Chicken Pate tasted Really Good but looked a little thin and watery on the plate. I I could have awarded 4.5 I would have shown a mere minor detail brushed perfection to the side and left only excellence! Well done and we wish you every success with your enterprise.

Hi Michael H, thank you for your review. It was great to have the opportunity to meet and serve your group on the 27th. Thank you for the comments about us and the restaurant, we do strive to meet all expectations. Shame we couldn’t reach the ultimate 5* rating. Just a note on the pate. It is all homemade and is always of a thick consistency, I have to assume that the watery look you had on your plate was in fact the salad dressing that accompanies the garnish. Apologies that this small error failed to achieve perfection. Thank you for your well wishes for the future, we hope to welcome you all back soon.

My friends all had fish and chips and all said they were excellent. I had stuffed peppers made specially as i have problems eating due to surgery absolutely fabulous. The lemon cheesecake to follow was divine not too sweet and very creamy. We were then brought chocolate and banana cake on the house which was scrumy. The service is impeccable and the staff so friendly. Highly recommended.

A friend and I visited Martika's Kitchen on Wednesday 28th October to eat and listen to Molly, a relative newcomer to the Paphos music scene. What a wonderful evening. Our meals were excellent and Molly provided a wonderful evening's entertainment. Graham and his staff work very hard to make the dining experience special and they certainly succeed. Well done.

Went with friends to see an entertainer called Molly, she was excellent. Unfortunately the food did not live up to expectations (5 star reviews). Had tempura prawns and vegetables to share as starters, overpriced but OK. Ha\d fish and chips for main, the chips were greasy and limp and whilst the fish was ok, the batter was also a bit greasy. Staff were friendly and adequate. Will not be going back again.

Brian C, thank you for your disappointing review. I’m saddened to read this review as we take all reviews very seriously. We aim for all our customers old and new to leave us with a positive view and having had an enjoyable evening. As you can see we have had many very good or excellent reviews over the time we have been open. We aim for excellence. The tempura mix selection that we currently offer is a mixture of Duck breast strips, mixed vegetables and king prawns. This is an ample portion for one person. If I’m not mistaken two portions were ordered to share between 4 diners. Our portion sizes are ample and not set to outface. As for our very much loved fish and chips, last night has to be an anomaly in our opinion. We normally have excellent feedback on our fish and chips. Sadly, the last part of your review hurts us the most, especially in these difficult times. One bad experience, without being given the chance to rectify. We hope that you will come back and give us this chance and hopefully we can achieve the 5 star rating we strive for.

We visited Martika’s kitchen for an evening meal at the end of September for our wedding anniversary after reading such a glowing review in Cyprus Living magazine. We were not disappointed, we had a lovely table overlooking all the twinkly lights of Paphos, could not complain about anything. The food was delicious and a fantastic choice, different twist on the usual fare served in so many restaurants, we had difficulty deciding what to have. The service was spot on, attentive but not intrusive. We enjoyed the evening so much, we have rebooked to visit again already.

What a superb restaurant in Tala Square with great views of the surrounding area. The food was excellent, we went with friends and 3 of us had the Tempura King Prawns which were superb. For mains 2 had Kleftiko which was tender and fell off the bone, the Salmon was also great and the Fish & chips were excellent. We were celebrating a birthday which was unknown to the staff when we booked and they brought a desert to the table with a sparkler and sang happy birthday, a great ending to a superb evening. The service was excellent and the staff very friendly. I can highly recommend you try it.

Having been recommended to Martika’s Kitchen we decided to pay it a visit. The restaurant is very modern and a lovely welcoming environment from when you walk in the door. We were offered tables both inside and outside and opted for the outside dining area as the shutters were down and had heaters on, still affording us a view down to the sea. The staff were courteous and engaging without being overbearing and the drinks and a complimentary warm tomato soup were delivered to the table. A house white wine was very well received by all and we awaited our main courses, Fish & Chips (regular and a large) and a Steak with peppercorn sauce. The food was lovely and the steak cooked to perfection, only downside was that we didn’t leave enough room for desert so maybe have to visit again to sample what looked like a lovely selection, I’d say perfect for couples, groups and families alike and a gem in Tala.

We love dining here! Graham, Martika and their team, have created a wonderful restaurant that will always be a favourite of ours. Martika's provides a relaxed and friendly ambience, twinned with beautiful sea views and stunning sunsets in which to enjoy the amazing food on offer. (best experienced from the outdoor terrace). Graham, an amazing host with a warm smile strives to ensure that you have a great experience whether you are first time or frequent diners. Their menus are imaginative, carefully thought out and there is something for every palate. We are very impressed by the selections on offer and can honestly say we have enjoyed every single dish we have ordered. Martika ensures her delicous dishes are served with the freshest ingredients, to a consistently high standard and gorgeous presentation. The serving team are friendly, attentive and nothing is too much trouble. Particularly hardworking Yvonne and Lorraine. We have thoroughly enjoyed, lunches, dinners and the popular event nights (talented musicians and special menus). A huge personal thank you from me Martika for your advice and in adapting dishes to accommodate my food allergies. Congratulations on your recent awards! Truly deserved.

When in Cyprus a visit (or two or three) to Martikas Kitchen is a must. We have now been many times and each time it has been great. The location is beautiful set in picturesque Tala square with amazing views down over Paphos from the terrace. The welcome is always warm and the food is beautifully served and cooked. This place is upmarket compared with most Paphos tourist eateries - definitely fine dinning - but the prices are not. If we have any criticism then it’s the lack of variation in the menu. There is a weekly rotation but that’s not enough if you are a frequent visitor and the menu this year is the same as last year. Martikas kitchen is well worth a visit but you do need to book as it’s popular.

Thank you for your review. It’s always a pleasure to welcome you back. We take note of your comment regarding the menu variation. We do change dishes every couple of months. However we are still different to most Cyprus restaurants where the menu is the same year in year out. We have selected our best dishes from our changing menus to create our current menu. We look forward to seeing you again.

We are so lucky to live within walking distance of such a fantastic restaurant which is also very good value for money. Graham, Martika and their team are very professional but also very friendly and make their guests feel welcome. The food is consistently excellent and the menu is tweaked regularly to include some new or slightly different dishes whilst retaining the most popular ones. It is one of our favourite places to eat - see you again soon!

Our first visit to Martika's Kitchen, where we were warmly greeted by Graham. It was a birthday celebration, and he had very thoughtfully taken the trouble to put a Happy Birthday sash across our table. It was a windy day, so he offered to light the table heater, and we gratefully accepted. The menu choices were plentiful, but being fish and chip lovers my wife and I settled for a small and large portion respectively. Our friend ordered the lamb ragu with tagliatelle. The food was to die for. The fish and chips were the best I have tasted in Cyprus. Lovely meaty fresh white fish covered in a light and crispy beer batter. Chips were home made and the mushy peas were also good. I am not a tartare sauce lover, but I was informed that was good too. Our friend said that the lamb ragu was delicious. We washed it down with a carafe and a half of house white wine, which was from a winery I hadn't heard of, but was light and fruity. We were all full afterwards, but Graham brought us a complimentary cheesecake and sorbet plate, which again was simply divine. The total cost at €55, was very reasonable given the quality. Thank you Graham and Martika, we will return!

We came to this restaurant twice, once as a couple then as a group of six. Both times the service was excellent, the staff were friendly, professional and totally accommodating. The food is brilliant, nothing else describes it. Everyone was happy with the 3 courses and the price was far less than the food was worth. I will absolutely visit again. I had the thai fishcakes which were delicious and crumbly packed full of chicken and prawn (not spongy like Thai fishcakes can be) and the pad kra pao gai whick was absolutely lovely and spicy. Others in our group had the fish and chips, the lamb shank, the curry, the fish cakes..... everyone was happy. Timely service, excellent staff, consistent quality and great value for money.
