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.

A big thank you to the Pelican team for the exceptional experience of Cyprus hospitality. The best fish meze that we ever had. We promise that we will come back!!!

The food was horrible and definitely the fish was not fresh as it was written on the menu, probably frozen. The fries were cold and probably cooked and reheated 2-3 times before served as the colour was dark brown. The container of the bread, under...the tissue that was being served was full of dust and spider webs! Unacceptable! You are serving food! We made a complaint to the waiters but nothing was done about it.More

Ideally situated on the harbour this bright and cheerful restaurant serves a good range of fish and meat dishes which can be accompanied by a nice cold glass of wine or beer. We had a table right by the water and enjoyed our meal.

This is a great spot for a casual lunch date! Had the best seafood pasta and calamari. Our waiter Addis was the best (very nice and helpful). She even spoke greek which is very rare at this area. The calamari was a bit overpriced as...the portion was very small but was expected for the location of the place!! Looking forward to meeting you again Addis 😊More

Despite it being epiphany and very busy at the harbour, we were served very quickly by our waitress Addis and the Caesar salad with prawns and the salad with salmon were very tasty. But not that cheap but that’s because of the location. Thoroughly enjoyed...our food.More

This Restaurant is located at the seaside of Paphos. In front of the Restaurant several men try to animate people (mostly tourists) to get inside for having a meal. Fast we got a table and the menu. Of course we have expected to get fresh...fish because outside is a big showcase presenting a lot of different fish. So we have ordered prawns with vegetables, CALAMARES as a starter meal, one SEABREAM and CALAMARES as a main course. Of course the waiter who took the order has tried to offer additional meals. But we don't wanted to order more. Then the noisy plastic roof was partly closed. My prawns were deep frozen and dry. The French Fries were almost black and soggy ( mushy), the Broccoli was strongly overcooked and fell into pieces when I have touched it and similar was the Cauliflower! The SEABREAM was looking black and it was dry. The CALAMARES was dry and almost without meat. But opposite with a lot of breadcrumbs. It has reminded me of cheap Asian bad quality. It was very dry and almost uneatable. Finally when I wanted to pay the bill the card Reader has asked me how much tip we wanted to give... I can't recommend this Restaurant.More

We just arrived to Cyprus and as my child was hungry we needed to find a place to eat as fast as possible. The Pelocan was looked a nice place to eat and we had a nice meal here. I ordered Dolmades, my son ate...chicken fillet with chips and everything was perfect, taste and portion as expected. Our waitress, Addis was supernice with us, she really made the effort to make us feel great here. She gave us some bread with olive oil and butter plus a water while we were waiting for our food, then she wanted to know if we would like the food and when we left, she asked a chef to make an extra portion of chips for my son as a take away. She really treated us as a friend or family we felt welcome here And as an extra a sweet pelican lives here who was walking around us. She is fun, enjoys company but also polite, she let us eating and was respectful.More

Today we discovered this lovely traditional family owned establishment, and had the most amazing time. Lunch we chose the seafood platter, and had a starter of salad and dips. Wonderful. There was so much to eat! All cooked to perfection. We were made very welcome...by George and his team, I'd like to say I would recommend this place to anyone. Also Coco the Pelican made her appearance she is beautiful just like the building with its original tiled flooring! Thankyou for giving us such a lovely time!More

The restaurant has a pelican that they use to try and entice people through the doors. The poor thing has its wings clipped. There was no evidence of it being kept in a suitable environment, just left to stand in the middle of the walkway....We didn't eat or drink here as it was very sad to see, and wouldn't advise anyone else to be taken in by the 'novelty' when this poor creature is being kept there.More

Came to this restaurant on a whim because Akmed(?), the waiter was so charming and friendly unlike the rest of the people out front of the restaurants trying to reel you in. The food was so fresh and delicious that we came back twice for...the sea bream especially. We had the fish pelican mezze and it is such value for money! Adis our waitress took such good care of us making sure we didn’t over order and we had everything we needed. She served us both for lunch and dinner and was the sweetest soul ever. We couldn’t have asked for a better dining experience with Adis and Akmed taking care of us.More
