We came here for our anniversary dinner and didn't regret it. The restaurant is on the First floor of an old town house and oozes charm. There is a terrace which is attractively decorated and the taverna has a great feel to it.

There is no menu, just a choice of meat or vegetarian meze. The meat meze had some great and more unusual dishes: beetroot and couscous, chick pea and tahini, fava and cooked onion. The meats were tasty and the halloumi was really flavoursome. They said all their food was sourced from the countryside around Paphos and you could tell it had great flavour.

We had a shot of some Cypriot grappa type drink I can't remember the name of and some little pies for dessert. A wonderful night.

We went to The seven St. George's tavern with no reservations on a Friday night - HaH! The audacity that we Israelis have...the place was packed! So the seventh son of the Georgos booked us for sunday night and called up a highly recommended tavern which unfortunately doesn't get the exposure it deserves - the Agora. A five minute drive brought us to a completely different part of Paphos, old Roman Greek buildings with lots of young Cypriots wining and dining in open restaurants. The Agora wasn't easy to find since it's on the second floor over a busy sushi place yet climbing there was worth it. The place itself is decorated like a royal Greek European home in the 1800s and the wide terrace, where we set, is decorated with old agricultural industry other types of tools. The place is run by a family, the husband is the cook, the wife waits the tables and the children do their homework. The warmth is felt through the the attitude, the food and the atmosphere. We are Jewish and so I asked not to serve us any pork - the variety of options was very wide and dishes to all our pallets were served till we said enough and it was a lot.
All dishes were fresh with the best ingredients and made to the level of gourmet cooking.
We enjoyed every byte we took.
A must if you stay in Paphos.

A well deserved 'Excellent' The Meze (meat) was absolutely delicious and unusual which is something I am always looking for. The atmosphere was friendly and buzzing. It was a beautiful night enhanced by the Japanese Drum show going on near the town hall. I loved every minute of it and will be going again when showing off a great Meze to my visitors.

This was a great experience as it was late night around 11 but they accepted us to dine in. We were a group of 10 people friends and family and everyone enjoyed the mezes, chicken, lamb and pork. Everything has a unique taste of their own so congrats to the chef! Also the waitresses are really polite and friendly. We paid 20€ each(drinks included like beer, coke, water and soda) but was more than full couldn't even finish all. Highly recommended and would definitely come back when in Paphos.
