We went there this weekend for lunch as it has now changed names and is a cafe lounge bar. all i can say is their service was good but their food was not up to standards at all and especially for the price you pay....12 euro for a salad and a few pieces of chicken -and i mean a few not even a full chicken breast and ONLY leaves. the dressing for the salad is terrible. their coffee was good but not hot. their pancakes were served with some wine sauce we had to send it back as it was inedible and no mention on the menu that it had wine. pitty as it could be a perfect little place- i guess its only really good for drinks.More

I have been there two years ago Amazing and really typical. We could eat mezze, the most typical food in Cyprus. But this summer we wanted to go again and was not the same business. What a pity! There are not too many locals like...that. Is it close to Paphos.More

Both the restaurant and the owners are old friends. Friendly helpful service. Great local food cooked by the girls in the kitchen who you can watch working hard in the heat. Great Cypriot food which includes both the tourist stuff and the most delicious REAL...village specialities. Great food when it's quiet at lunch time with musical entertainment when it's busier in the evening. Give it a try. You will come back time after time, year after year!More

When I went in 2016 was a Cyprus Tavern but the last August (2017) we wanted to go again but it was no possible cos was not the same local. The owner told us that they offered another food not in relation with the Cyprus...food neither with the shows in the typical Cyprus Tavern. What a pity!!!!More

We ended up here more or less accidentally. Loved the mezze, loved the Xinisterri Cypriot white wine (as recommended by our lovely waiter) but overall, had a fabulous night out enjoying the live music and watching - and participating - in impromptu Greek dancing. We...really hope to be back: rock on the Scorpios!More

Had a great breakfast here, it was great value for money and super tasty. It is worth the little walk from the more touristy restaurants

Had lunch here and it was fantastic as always. We have been coming here for 10 years, every time we visit cyprus and the food is always amazing. Staff are really friendly and welcoming. Highly recommend.

We visited Scorpios tavern with Cypriot friends who had enjoyed it when visiting for a christening. I am a vegetarian and checked when booking that they had suitable menu. I was assured that they had plenty of options. As our booking was for a Saturday...night and live music was on only meze was available. My friend kindly joined me in the vegetarian option as meze is only available for a minimum of 2 people. Both our husbands went with the "normal" meze. The usual dips arrived and the music began. My friend and I were then brought some barbecue grilled mushrooms and our husbands received some pork souvla. Meat continued to arrive for our husbands but we did not receive any further food, unless you count chips ! When the staff began to clear the table and we realised we were not going to receive any more food my friend enquired what was happening. We were then offered some calamari ! My Cypriot friend was able to explain in Greek this was not a suitable thing to offer a vegetarian but nothing else was offered in its place. When we received the bill we had been charged the same price for all 4 meze. Al I can say on a positive note was the music was good.More

first visit here (much easy now it is pedestrianised). Sat outside for lunch. The menu is varied. I ordered my food which arrived in good time, but long enough to show that it was cooked to order. I had nothing special, just a burger but...it was very good. The waiting staff were friendly and welcoming. Quite clearly a number of the diners were regulars and were booking dinner for the weekend when there was entertainment. Will visit again.More
