We were recommended this traditional Cypriot family run restaurant and at first we couldn't find it, it's tucked away from the main restaurants but how great it is once your there. Costas and his team were brilliant, food superb and very resonably priced as was the wine.We laughed so much along with other diners, Costas has a great personality and... More

Wow! My uncle had read about this little find on here. Once we found it we were met by Costa who we booked a table for the Saturday night. Great birthday celebrations from Costa and his brother. Food was excellent and so much choice and so very well priced. There was the clay oven special which was pork and chicken... More

As vegans, we were disappointed but our friends (who are carnivores) enjoyed their meals. Ours (Mothers Veggie Special) was a little bland, small & left us feeling hungry. But they did try & we had an OK evening.

This is an amazing place. Each customer on arriving is greeted by the two delightful brothers who run the taverna. The menu is varied, not just a full range of tradition and local foods but other options too. Cannot recommend highly enough.

We were surprised to see a totally empty place during lunch time. Yes, it was November and the restaurant is a bit out of the way of the tourist crowd - for the TA reviews were so good that we tried to rationalize the situation. The place looks nice, and we've walked for a while to get there - so... More

Loved the geniality of the hosts and sampled some lovely food. The afelia was delicious and very tender as was the tavas. We had the opportunity to taste some home made sausages with red wine and spices which were substantial but excellent. Look forward to our next visit.

We first visited Paphos 22 years ago but sadly only found Mothers restaurant 16 years ago thereby missing out on several years of great food. We are now fortunate enough to spend much longer in Cyprus and regularly visit Mothers 3 or 4 times a week when there. The tasty traditional food, excellent service and the friendly atmosphere have been... More
