For Melania bus stop is just 50 meters next to it. Melania restaurant family would like to inform all of you that we will open again early April 2018. Our restaurant new style will be unique all over Cyprus. We will be able to offer meals in 2 different sections. 1st gourmet meals (all in a surf and turf style) including starters, soup, main course, desserts and aperitifs. 2nd traditional section including salads starters and fresh grilled Cypriot way cooked meals. In addition every Friday dinner time we will offer a big selection of only fresh fish in cooperation with the famous local Vasilis Fish Markets. Thanks for the 30+ years of supporting!

We have been visiting the restaurant for 24 years and the food has always been excellent. It seems to be suffering from a lack of visitors (not their fault) and so the prices have risen quite a lot. However there is always plenty of food. There was however a problem with the card machine!

Thanks for visiting our place so many years. Sure on November time visitors are much less than Summer time. Sure prices have risen quite a lot all over Cyprus because of the cost of most products and and expenses. We will always cook plenty of food.and very high quality for all of you. Thanks for the support. Problems have to do with information systems like the card machine etc...its a part of our life here in Cyprus!

It doesn't get any better than this folks!! Don't leave Paphos without having a meal at Melania. Matheos is a gracious host, full of life, smiles and ancient stories of the island's history. His wife Elly cooks all the meals herself, all fresh, home made and home grown. This is Cypriot hospitality at it's best. We have been going there for over 20 years, and the quality of the food and service has not changed. How often can you say that? Pride of ownership is evident here.

Simply put, you have to try this place.
Don't be put off if no-one is in. We arrived and the place was empty, it soon filled up, we were met by Mathew (the older gent) who explained that all the fruit and veg was grown on his plot of land behind the restaurant. The Kleftiko was excellent and massive. The chips, home made were the best we had during our two week stay. the Meze we had on the following visit took hours to work our way through.
Simply brilliant and very reasonably priced. You have to try this place.

We visited this Restaurant twice whilst staying in Paphos for a week. The setting is so typically
Cypriot, tables outside sitting beneath vines. The food was superb and so much of it. We had
the best Meze we have ever had in all of Greece. Most of the food is also home-grown by the
lovely friendly family which run it. We can highly recommend this Restaurant.
