Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My title might seem a little dramatic but it's true. As a half of a well travelled couple the two of us visited here last night mainly as it had good reviews and was the nearest restaurant to where we were staying. Upon entering the restaurant we were greeted warmly by the staff on hand and directed to the very comfortable waiting area as we had no reservation. Shortly later Elaine came through with a beaming smile and handed us each a menu, took our drink orders and left us to soak in the surroundings. Sitting on a comfortable couch bathing in the heat of the gas fire pit in the centre of the room I perused the menu. A lot of dishes stood out and I knew from the detail of the food descriptions that the meal I looked forward to would be good. Elaine soon returned with out drinks and provided us with details of the numerous specials they had on that day. So far so good. After a very brief wait we were directed to our perfectly set table. Attention to detail is obviously high in Olivio's. We ordered our meals and sat and chatted, soaking in the ambiance. Our starters promptly arrived, which looked and tasted even better than described. My appetite was wheted at this point for my main and it didn't disappoint. Everything we ate was cooked to perfection, scallops melting in the mouth, succulent king prawn, chicken char grilled to perfection, sea bass cooked perfectly with a side of crispy decorative skin and all the vegetables also perfectly cooked and presented wonderfully. The meal and whole experience were a delight from start to finish and I would have no hesitation in recommending Olivio to everyone who appreciates great food and we have already made a reservation to return in the very near future. A total pleasure from start to finish and a must visit for anyone coming to the Paphos area. And all for the price of a chain restaurant back home. Fantastic

I have travelled world wide for business and for leisure and frankly I don't write many rave reviews at all. However; I was so impressed with this restaurant I thought I had to. The menu was a mixture local and a wider types of food. I had Portobello Mushrooms cooked in five different types of cheese and OMG I could taste every single one of them. So good was this starter I dreamed about it later. The main meal was excellent and we paid 20 Euros for a bottle wine I had paid £150 for in a 5star hotel in Dubai in the past. Brilliant place to eat and a cut above so many in Cyprus.

Now that lockdown has eased off we were pleased to hear that Olivio had reopened and was once again open for lunch, and in fact open all day. We were warmly welcomed by Elaine and Bambos and sat out on the terrace at the back of the restaurant. In what used to be the car park they are building a beer garden which was half done the day we were there. The menu has changed I think to reflect the all day opening and the economic climate at present but theres still plenty to choose from I had prawns and avocado to start and that was lovely followed by fillet steak cooked just as I like it . So pleased they ve reopened!!

Lovely restaurant, nice glassware and crockery. Cutlery?? Service spot on. Drinks etc good. However out of 7 people only 3 meals were enjoyed. Leek and potato soup x 2, no seasoning, needed lots of salt and pepper. The rack of lamb x 2 was disappointing, tough, smothered in sauce, roast potatoes were ok but men have had better. Rack of lamb should have been served with a jus not a gravy. Salmon x 2 was dry, chips not good, hardish in middle and were all left on plate. Salad in a bowl but no oil or vinegar or dressing on table. Menu said Salmon and Asparagus with Dill sauce? We expected Salmon, Asparagus spears and a jug of dill sauce! Not Salmon with a tiny bit of chopped Asparagus in a white sauce? No dill!! This dish would have been so much better with new or baked potatoes and seasonal vegetables certainly not with the chips that we were served. So disappointed. We are all locals and at best the meal was OK. Not what we wanted or expected.

Our local friends had heard excellent reports of Olivio's but had struggled to pin down its location - their success was very well rewarded... We went for a drink and a snack at 4.30pm, though the latter really turned out to be a meal in themselves. The service was friendly and attentive, the cocktails interesting, well made and delicious and all the food was simply excellent and enjoyed by everyone. Between us we tried the roasted vegetable and seafood pizzas, the burger and the vine leaves and warm olives, but the menu is wideranging with several specials on top. We'll definitely be back and look forward to trying the extended outside seating.

We always look for somewhere special for a Birthday & Valentine Evening Out and having seen Olivio in the Paphos Post newspaper we checked out the website. It sounded & looked amazing so decided to book .I was just a little concerned that the portions would be very small as can sometimes be the case with Fine dining. From start to finish the ambience, service and especially the food were excellent and beyond our expectations. The portions were larger than expected and the bill less than expected. Whether you are looking for a Romantic dinner for 2 or just some fine dining in a lovely relaxed atmosphere I highly recommend this restauranr and will definitely be going back very soon

I reviewed this restaurant in 2021 and gave a glowing review as we had a lovely evening, I was therefore very much looking forward to coming here again this year. However, the same cannot be said for this visit. Firstly our table was opposite a house that had a dog chained up in the back yard, it barked through the entire evening. I understand that this is not the fault of the restaurant, but maybe a higher fence should be erected in this part of the outside seating area, as it was not a nice sight to see, as well as the incessant barking. The staff are very attentive to the ex pats and locals of the area, it was for this reason that our drinks took a long time to arrive. It was quite disconcerting to see the staff make such a fuss of the regular guests, when we was still waiting on drinks, I can only assume that the many good reviews are from the regular guests that get priority service. I ordered the same starter as before, the bruschetta. All I can assume is they have a different chef or they are trying to cut back on ingredients, to re coup loss of earnings due to COVID. I had the smallest amount of mozzarella, it was hardly worth putting on. I cannot remember what everyone had, but I know that no one enjoyed them, we all tried one another's, we all agreed they were either bland or small portions. The Caesar salad which is basically constructed was awful. Most definitely not a Caesar salad, but a cold chicken salad.....A completely different meal entirely. The one meal that was enjoyed was the pizza. Most of the restaurants in this area, are quite casual, I was therefore looking forward to dressing up and going out for a proper evening meal, however on this occasion, it did not live up to my expectations. There were far too many cats around the dining area for my liking. I understand that many cats roam around Cyprus freely, however, this was the only restaurant that seemed to not be discouraging them, we never encountered this anywhere else in Cyprus, other than maybe 1 or 2 not a clowder of cats. Sadly I will not recommend or return.

We visited Olivios in May 2022 and had a lovely evening but didn’t get around to writing a review. So after our visit again last night, we felt we just had to give our feedback on this lovely little gem. Elaine and the staff are very friendly and she and her husband made a point of welcoming every single guest. This place is obviously very popular with the local residents as well as tourists as the clientele proved. They offered a wide and varied menu as well as several special dishes which caused very difficult decision making! We eventually chose and were both delighted with our choices. The house wine recommended by Elaine was also delicious. Unfortunately we were both too full to sample the delicious sounding desserts, but were offered complimentary liquors at the end of the evening. The ambience on the terrace was lovely and made even more special when a gorgeous kitten came to say hello and settled on my lap. We can’t recommend this lovely restaurant highly enough and will definitely return on our next trip,

As a family we went to Cyprus at the start of July for 10 days. During this stay we went to Olivio’s twice as the first time was absolutely amazing! Olivio’s is a short walk from where we were staying which was a bonus as other restaurants we needed to drive to. The cocktails here were so nice and much cheaper than London prices! You could taste the alcohol and they had a big selection of cocktails to choose from. The food was insane. I had calamari with potatoes and vegetables, best calamari I’ve ever had. Followed by their homemade red velvet cake which was amazing. I shared a starter with my partner which was halloumi and honey in pastry, again it was amazing! The second time we went I had one of their pasta dishes, again this tasted insane. Followed by white and dark chocolate pudding, the perfect amount and not too heavy. I couldn’t fault this restaurant at all, the staff were absolutely lovely and asked about your holiday. At the end of our meal we were offered a free liquor on the house which is such a lovely gesture. Will defo be coming back here when I’m next visiting Cyprus.

We have just visited this amazing restaurant while staying with friends in Anarita. We can’t praise the service and food enough!!! All our meals were excellent and I strongly recommend the Prawn & Prosecco risotto which was cooked to perfection. I also asked for spinach to be added which was done without any hesitation from the owner. We will defiantly be visiting again when we visit our friends in the future.

This is an excellent Restaurant, we enjoyed an lovely evening on the new rear terrace and beer garden. The menu is very varied and the owner has a great range of wines to complete the feast. An absolute must visit if you are in the Paphos area and feel hungry. I would book to be on the safe side and request a table on the terrace.

Reading the reviews of this restaurant expected this to be amazing however it wasn’t the best the food was very dry, the photos made it look a lot better than it was. The lasagna was like a shepherds pie, the mixed grill was very dry. Very disappointing however the staff were good.

Booked an evening meal here on the recommendation of family who live nearby, was not disappointed. Really lovely food with good portion size, friendly service. Prices very reasonable. We really enjoyed ourselves. On top of that there were a bunch of friendly cats around and I ended up with a kitten on my lap. A perfect experience as far as I’m concerned! Will definitely go again next visit to Cyprus.

Absolutely first class in all aspects and the top in the area. Very friendly service and excellent personal attention, most delicious food, great variety a la carte but also mouthwatering daily specials cooked to perfection. Rates are very reasonable for the offering and in line with other places. Also nice wine list including interesting Italian wines which we love. We have been twice during our stay but will definitely come back and can only recommend.
