This restaurant is at one of the best locations in Cyprus. However the food is not that tasty or well cooked. We ordered fish meze and most of the dishes where probalby boiled prepared. Moreover, food served is overpriced.

I have been staying in Paphos for a while, we have eaten out virtually every night. Everything restaurant, with the exception of the Pelican, we said that we would go back. It is very overpriced and the quality is poor, a bad choice, I would never return here.

We were very hungry and decided to sit at this restaurant in the harbour area instead of walking to Ocean Basket. We ordered Fish Meze and as we had one dish of these before in a restaurant in Lanarca we could make a good comparison. The meal was poor and the service almost forgot us.. at some point they took...

Small portions, expensive for the quality of food, polite service. The place is great, in front of the harbor, you can enjoy sea.

This place is a tourist trap: bad overpriced food and poor sluggish service. We waited our plates for nearly 40 min while the restaurant was not full at all - we ordered around 15h. But the quality of the food was so bad that we bearly had a few bites. This was the first place in Cyprus where we were... More

The food was over priced comparing with the quality and quantity. The service was less than normal and the stuff were not qualified to deal with customers specially tourists.

The display of fresh fish at the entrance to this waterfront restaurant at Paphos Harbour is an ingenious way to grab your attention. As you browse the variety on show, Pambos, the genial manager appears and invites you to peruse the menu. We decided to relax with a coffee at one of the tables overlooking the harbour and watched other... More

Enjoyed a great seafood salad lunch on the harbour. Service was good, reasonably priced (by Pafos standards). If we had more time would have probably gone back for a dinner

Food was super but won't be going back as they have felt the need to have a pelican on a lead- really is this necessary! Some muppets see this as a highlight - really?????? Such a shame as great location and food. It really isn't needed to draw people in. My children were devastated by what they saw.
