Recomended to try this place by people living here who manage holiday lets. Have to say we were left feeling a tiny bit disappointed with the standard of the food. It was edible and fresh but just a bit lacking. A bland plate of boiled vegetables accompany the main courses. I had Dolmades and they were good, mum and her friend had Kleftiko and it was quite dry, they asked for oil and vinaigerette to moisten it. Didnt bother with a dessert, it just wasnt that inspiring but we did have some great floater coffees. Staff extremely friendly and sweet but we certainly wouldnt have rushed back. I suppose it depends on what yoyur expectations and standards are when it comes to eating out. But this came with such high accolades that I felt a bit hard done by. I like to eat food that is so good I never want to end, and this just isnt one of those places in our opinion.

Found this place after searching on TripAdvisor for local food. We went for the mix meze which did not disappoint. They suggest not eating too much bread before your meal which is advice we should have listened to. The bread is lovely but save some for the dips and leave room for the actual meze. We gave it a good shot between the 2 of us and only left some mushrooms behind but we were stuffed at the end. The food was amazing and would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting paphos!!!

We visited this restaurant off the back of the good reviews, but left feeling disappointed and robbed of €40.
On arrival everything was fine - a nice table and drinks arrived quickly. We the placed our order and everything went downhill from there.
We expected a bit of a wait for the meal, but an hour later we were still waiting while other tables who had arrived after us were served their meals.
We asked the waiter where our food was, and he came back to say that the chef had forgotten our order!! He then went on to tell us that our meals would be with us in 5 minutes.........yes, 5 minutes to cook our food!
On arrival is was clear that the chef had rushed our food - it was almost inedible.
Needless to say, we asked for the bill and got out as quickly as possible - there was barely a word of apology from the staff.
I suppose that thus can happen in a busy restaurant, but they only had 5 tables to serve and at no time did the staff appear inclined to chase up our order- maybe we had blended into the background......a 6 foot heavily built bloke with a bright orange shirt is easy to lose in a half empty restaurant !!
Needless to say that we will never return and I would certainly not recommend this place to anybody

We ate here on our last night having read the reviews. It did not disappoint! The staff were so friendly and the food was tasty and reasonably priced. The complimentary lentils were gorgeous. So glad we went here and if we had found this restaurant earlier on our holiday then we would have definitely returned

We were only in Paphos for a week and yet ate here 4 times!
The food is great, especially the starters, portions are massive and the staff are super welcoming.
As many others have stated in previous reviews the complimentary lentils you get before your starters are to die for! I wish I had asked for the recipe!
Nancy and her brother welcomed myself and my partner every evening as if we were old friends and made us feel super welcome there.
It’s great home cooked food and we never left hungry!
It’s also super affordable, on average we spent €45 and that’s including alcoholic drinks.
They often get wedding receptions there (there were 3 out of the 4 nights we were there) but don’t let this put you off! You still will get excellent service and food!

100% recommend and would love to go back!
