Description: Beach restaurant, situated next to the church in St. Pauls Bay , a unique restaurant offering Mediterranean/Greek cuisine. Open all day from 10am. The ambience in the evening is extremely romantic and intimate, candles adorn the beach all the way to the restaurant creating a beautiful atmosphere. Reservations recommended. Please note that this restaurant should not be confused with the Cantina on the beach opposite. We are situated next to the Church of St. Paul, we offer Gazebo double beds with curtains and wooden sun beds with waitress service to the beach, The car park above beach has ample parking for a large amount of cars and buses and is situated directly below the football grounds as you descend down the road towards St. Paul's Bay Church. Gazebo beds can be reserved in advance. Wedding enquiries for receptions are welcome. If you wish to make evening reservations please phone the restaurant directly on (0030) 22440 33000.

“Perfect yet again :-)”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Having visited here last year on our anniversary, we came back again with the family this year.
Needless to say we were not disappointed.
The food was perfect and the staff were very attentive and helpful.
Very reasonably priced and the quality is superb.
We all had something different and everyone was satisfied - Fish, Octopus, Chicken, Beef, and pasta. That says it all.
We were a group of 8 (6 adults and 2 children).
Thank you Tambakio once again. We look forward to seeing you again next year.

“Picturesque meal”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

This location is splendid, both for lunch and dinner. The staff is very efficient, helpful and nice. First visit they let us taste their Halloumi fried cheese which tasted absolutely delicious, so the next visit we ordered that as a starter to share. We actually went 3 times on our 10 days trip to Rhodes, both due to the atmosphere at the restaurant itself and the surroundings. The beach is excellent, though it is hard to get a sun bed if you arrive midday. If you do not like crowded beaches with vendors and cheap beach restaurants, this is your place!

“Nice breeze and aroma of mint”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

Romantic place to have lunch or dinner. The service is friendly and the food is good with a touch of Italian/continental kind of food. The view is unique in St. Paul bay. The only thing is missing is an authentic Greek atmosphere. The overall opinion about the restaurant is excellent.
