We ate here twice during our stay. The food & service are head & shoulders above the other restaurants. Food presented artfully, staff dressed professionally and behaved accordingly. Nice to have a place where everything didn't automatically come with chips, jacket or salad. Each dish came with it's suitable vegetable accompaniment. We were put off initially by the fact that...

I support all of the recent comments - it's a fabulous place; theres a large range on the menu, which does not normally mean that the quality is good - but it was excellent. Had stifado and moussaka, traditional and full of flavour; the hospitality was also faultless, friendly yet not overbearing. A great place that we will return to... More

Fantastic fine dining menu, but where chef keeps natural taste of the initial product, as well as creatively presents local cousine. It is important to have a seat in a place like this and explore Cyprus food in a innovative way. However, you will still be able to recognize either kleftiko or stifado or anything else and you won't call... More

We were in Gourmet Taverna two days ago and loved it the moment we walked in. Food was excellent, staff was perfect. Decided to have a dinner on a New Years Eve and this was the best experience during our stay i Paphos. You will miss a great restaurant if you don't eat here.

You're treated like an old friend from the minute you walk into this wonderful restaurant and nothing is too much trouble (eg offering to change the ingredients in the vegetable moussaka). Andy, the waiter who was on duty the evening I was in, was friendly, professional, knowledgeable yet very relaxed. Unexpected complimentary soup and freshly baked bread was served while... More

There aren't many of the top places open in Paphos in December but we were so happy we stumbled across this place. So much to choose from on the menu at a reasonable price for the quality food that comes out. Complementary bread and soup, mixed meze to start was delicious then we had lamb shank and fillet steak -... More

Very welcoming restaurant with excellent staff and the food was amazing. The moussaka was really good and very filling, my husband had the swordfish which was superb. Reasonably priced for a lovely meal.

This is possibly the best mixed grill I have had In a long time. The meats were very tasty and the veg and mash that accompanied the meal were great. My wife had the suckling pig which obviously I tried and it was fantastic the meat just fell away from the bone. The crackling was very crisp. With a couple... More

We were out for lunch one day and I wasn't very hungry so just looking for somewhere nice for a soup. They advertised outside for a set menu for 2, with mousakka which I am not keen on. One of the staff said we can swap it to meatballs, I made myself hungry! :) amazing food, fresh and tasty, attentive... More
