This place was so good we ate here 4 nights running. The suckling pig was sumptuous, the mixed meze was superb and the stuffed vine leaves were delicious. A great welcome from all the staff. Unfortunatey, they close from the end of November until February, otherwise we would have eaten there every night!

Where do you start Phidias is such a gentleman his restaurant and staff are impeccable food just melts in your mouth. If you are near coral bay or peyia you need to go in and feast. Prices very good for the amount he puts on you plate. Go and enjoy. For us it's 10 out of 10.

Our Host at Palm Tree oriental house recommended this taverna. It is off the main street but well worth going there. all the staff especially the owner were so friendly. The food was fantastic- I chose their special which was lamb shank which i ate to the bone. Complimentary drink at the end of the evening a lovely touch

In the second week of our stay in Coral Bay and you would think by now we'd stopped ordering starters. But no, Ooops we did it again!!! We turned up at Phidias Tavern as two couples and were given a table outside which was absolutely fine with us on such a temperate evening. Complimentary garlic bread as well as starters... More

Had seen crowds outside this Restaurant on the previous night so decided to give it a try. We should have gone on one of the nights they hold the Greek dancing as there was no atmosphere whilst we were there. Staff not particularly attentive either. Food mediocre. Best part was the lovely free garlic bread we were given as a... More
