“Expensive, but genuine”
Reviewed 29 September 2012

Having visited this taverna for well over 25 years I have been amazed at the price of food here where it brags of home grown food. Shouldn't this be less expensive than other places who buy it in? Peanut butter sandwich at 4 euros and toast at the same price with home grown olive oil, this is free at many other places including Christos Grill House! I must admit the housewife in the kitchen works hard and the local dishes are very good but she is a cook not a chef. I have looked at many, many cafes and restaurants in Paphos and compared prices and those here are above the norm. This is compared to 'real' restaurants where there are linen napkins, proper waitresses, bar staff and chefs! I cannot fault the quality of the food and the friendly atmosphere,once you get to know George and his father. I will go back once I have saved up!!

“"traditional and classic" "DELICIOUS"”
Reviewed 23 July 2012

Me and my family LOVE Melania! Its so traditional and classicly cypriot that you cant go wrong with it! The owners and waitors are really friendly and it has a great atmosphere.
The meze is a great way to sample all the delicious food however the menu also offers a range of freshly prepared meals!
What I aslo love about Melania is that is all cooked fresh and grown locally, even the meat!

I totally reccomend this place to everyone :D
