I went with my family for a dinner. The environment is great, while the food is amazing. It's one of those places that you will find out what traditional cypriot foods are with the great service of the family running the restaurant.

Had best lamb kleftico ever. So good that we visited twice in 4 days. Will go back next time we in Tala. Staff & owner were concerned to ensure all their customers had a good time and enjoyed their food and their visit.

Melitzia Taverna provides excellent Cypriot cuisine with friendly service and a spectacular view of Paphos. The walk up the hill gets your appetite going and the walk back down is a good way to end the evening.

Decided to try somewhere new for dinner close to where we were staying, the restaurant is on a hill overlooking the sea and the views were beautiful. The staff were inviting and we were quickly served with drinks. They brought out complimentary bread drizzled in oil and herbs prior to our meal, I had already planned what I was going... More

Enjoyed the food here - great starter of tahini dip served with toasted herbed bread, very cheap. They cooked veggie food off-menu (so don't be put off with lack of veggie options on menu because they are accommodating). Partner had chicken in creamy sauce which was large and came with various sides. They provided cake and fruit for dessert on... More

The most moist and flavourful pork chop I have ever had. I know it's boring to order the same but without hesitation I would. Well worth the climb up the step hill but with a great atmosphere and watching the lights coming on , good soul food for those wanting some . ENJOY 😀😀😀😀 PS. Very strong cocktails !

I liked almost everything about this place. Good location in the middle of Tala (although the hill is a little steep). A car-park (thank goodness). Lovely verandah with tables under a leafy canopy. Then add friendly and welcoming staff, a good selection of beers and wines and great food. During our two week stay we ate here three times. On... More
