Just got back f rom a visit to this cafe bar smack in the middle of poseidonos and dionysou streets. Great service, and the food was well prepared well priced and simply delicious. Had a halloumi and lountza pits with salad, and a spinach and feta ravioli. Accompanied by a small bottle of wine and sparkling water, a latte macchiato and a filter coffee with the best orange cake in Paphos. Total all in 26.30 euro. Been past the place several times and its always busy.

“Great venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2013

What a breath of fresh air, the place is in the perfect location and offers a great level of service. The staff are friendly and helpful and there is a good choice of food.
When the sun's out you can sit on either the terrace or inside with the large glass doors open.

Would recommend as a place for families or groups to go.

“Offers Gluten-free menu”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

I went looking for this place because I'm wheat intolerant and was curious about its wheat/gluten-free options. I had a prawn salad from the 4-5 choices of gluten-free meals (I assume a normal dressing has gluten) and was surprised to also find pork on the salad, which I don't eat. There was no problem making up another salad for me. The gluten-free bread roll wa quite hard. To be honest, in a warm climate, you don't really need any heavy food so my craving for bread and pasta just didn't exist. Just eat nice fresh salads instead until you get home! You can buy gluten-free pasta from the local supermarket in Kato Paphos and also rye bread if you're just wheat-intolerant.

“Great food, service and gluten free options”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2013

Ate here with our daughter who has Coeliac Disease so can't eat any gluten (wheat, barley or rye). The staff were great - bought her out 3 gf cookies when we asked if the ones we had been given with our coffees were gf. There was a range of gf choices including pasta. The owner gave us his email address so we could contact them if we had any gluten free enquiries whilst on our holiday. Will definately be going back whilst we are here!
