“Traditional village restaurant, good views, good food, good service.”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

Melitzia s is a lovely large restaurant with a nice outside seating area which give good views over looking paphos. The restaurant is clean, tables set out with table clothes and plates always turned upside down. Why is this important...because of flys and insects of course. At least they have thought about this. Inside is nice too and toilets which are clean and you would be happy to visit.
Staff are pleasant, menus brought quickly and orders for drinks were taken straight way. We ordered a meze, vegetarian and tenderloin. Plates were served with side salad and chips, if you prefer you can have rice or couscous. The meze was the nicest we have had for a long time. Dips,salad,sausage,belly pork,mushrooms,couscous,kleftico, spinach and egg, 2 types of beans, roast potato and some affilia, I think it was. Absolutely lovely and served so that you had something to eat all the time without us running out and having dry plates. After we were brought slices of water melon and small pieces of cake. We had a bottle of rosé, water and 2 glasses of wine..the bill was 79 euro.

“Quality local Cypriot restaurant”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

We stayed in a villa in Tala 3 years ago and discovered this restaurant. Came first time and loved it, very friendly, although not the most extensive menu, the food is great, quality always good, loads to eat, nice little touches for dessert etc.
Meat meze is lovely.
We eat here as a party of 9, best value compared to other restaurants we have been to, and that is several others that account for the top 20 in the Paphos district listed.
Would thoroughly recommend coming here.

“One of our locals”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

You can always rely on a good meal and a warm welcome at Melitzia Taverna. A great family run establishment. Food a plenty so go hungry! The best salad around especially Melitzia Salad and the chips so golden and crispy! Recommend all on the menu.
My husband was talking to Savas ( the owner ) and enquired after his wife ( who does the cooking ) he took my husband to the kitchen door to say hello ....... The place was absolutely spotless.
Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this taverna for a good night out.
