Description: Melania Restaurant is a family restaurant owned by Kannavias family from the 80s. Situated about 1km after the “Tombs Of The Kings” on the way to Coral Bay on the write side. Public transport to Melania: Bus from harbor to coral bay every 20 minutes. For Melania, bus stop is just 50 meters next to it. Our restaurant style is unique all over Cyprus. We offer every Friday, dinner time a big selection of only fresh fish in cooperation with the famous local Vasilis Fish Markets. Exempt the menu meals we also offer every night cypriot traditional BBQ. As a starter, our big offer is the original greek salad and dips at the price of only 4.00 Euro per person. Lot's of surprises according free desserts for all. Thanks for the 30+ years of supporting!

Having a week with my mum and dad at Paradise Kings Club the Melania is the closest restaurant. It is also the most traditional. Lynne loves the Moussaka and I always go for the Stifado (if it's on) which it usually is :) Sometimes the Mousakka runs out as they only make a limited amount so if you want to ensure you get this it's best to book. Very traditional, very simple, very effective. It is also amazing value for money. We love it!

I don't know why we didn't discover this restaurant before as I now realise what we were missing. The surroundings are traditionally Cypriot, sitting under vines & surrounded by beautiful plants, you can easily forget you are in Paphos. The food was plentiful, delicious, as nearly all is home grown & then cooked beautifully. I went with my family group (10 of us) children to pensioner ages & all of us thoroughly enjoyed the food & the ambience. The service was very friendly & efficient & the whole place spotlessly clean. If you want a traditional meze, superbly cooked & presented all for 18 euros then this is the place. We will certainly be returning there time & time again.

Went to this restaurant with my wife and three friends. From the outside, doesn't look anything
out of the ordinary, but once inside it has the feel of a real Cypriot restaurant. Indeed the serving and cooking were done by the owner and his wife. We had meze, and the variety and quality of the food was exceptionally good. We sat in the outside area, which was completely covered with grape vines, with large bunches of grapes hanging down. We also tried the local "village wine",
which was quite good. My only criticism is that the atmosphere might be improved with the addition of some soft background Cypriot music. All in all, a good night and well worth the visit.

We visit Paphos most years and over the years have enjoyed the food at Melania Restaurant. The Mousaka made 'Mama' is the best I have ever eaten, served with home grown Tomato, Cucumber, and Chips. This was followed by a sweet made from their own garden. We will look forward to once again enjoying being at the restaurant next year.
