Despite the upheaval with the roadworks all over Paphos, it's worth a trip to Skorpios. Parking is on the main car park , down the hill opposite. Skorpios has been a family run restaurant for many years, and you are assured of a warm welcome by the staff. I had the individual mousaka, which was excellent. One of the best... More

A great place, very popular to locals with excellent music. The service is very good but the food quality and also the quantity is very low.

Fantastic night with simply gorgeous food. We had a brilliant evening amongst a restaurant full of Cypriot people enjoying a party atmosphere with live traditional music. It was an absolute pleasure to be in the company of local people and sampling rural dishes served with passion and friendliness. I recommend Scorpios to anyone visiting Pathos who appreciates Greek culture, loves... More

We've been coming to Scorpios for lunch everytime we visit Paphos. Authentic, fresh, home cooked Cypriot food at unbeatable prices. Tefkros the former owner has handed the keys to his nephews but this has not changed how the business is run and the food and service is just as good a sit always was. Recommend the Sheftalia portion (5) which... More

We are regular visitors to Scorpios and it never disappoints. Always given a warm welcome the owners know how to look after their customers. The food is top notch - I fully recommend the sheftalia which is home-made. The best we have tasted. Their chips are also home-made - a rarity in this day and age but it totally makes... More

We were on our way to Paphos and asked the taxi driver to recommend somewhere authentically Cypriot for us to dine at... He took us to this Taverna... Absolutely stunning... you can't get more authentic than Scorpios!!!! The food was d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s and in our opinion one of the best we have tasted over the past 6 years we have visited... More

We actually set out to head to Laona, which proved inaccessible due to all the digging going on in Old Paphos, so we wandered about to find whatever else might be open and stumbled on this gem. This was our 2nd day in Paphos, and the whole town seemed dead for a Thursday evening (few restaurants closed at 6/7pm seemed... More

We quite unexpectedly stumbled across this restaurant as we were searching for another. They were very accommodating, for vegetarians and meat eaters alike. It was here where we got out first taste of a serious round of meze, and it was great. Full of so many different flavours, combined with the great service, this was a long, beautiful, memorable dinner.... More
