We dropped into this restaurant a couple of times for drinks to get some relief from the sun. As the title suggest, we received a lovely warm welcome from the family. The restaurant is located next to St Pauls Pillar and there is parking outside. The cats provide lots of entertainment to while away a lazy afternoon. We bumped into... More

We found this restaurant by chance, when visiting the near-by church and archeological site. It is only a fairly small eatery - say 25 seats, but the owner's family are very helpful and chatty - very good English spoken. Lots of choices of food, but I especially liked the Veggie Meze - which was a real man sized meal, and... More

Gillian is the perfect hostess. Happy, friendly, informative, chatty, pleasant and funny ~ wonderful. The food was delicious, cooked by Christakis who has been around for a while and knows his stuff. The music was pleasant and the location is opposite the St. Paul's Pillar and church. Highly recommended. Inside or outside dining. Thanks for a lovely lunch.

Having visited this restaurant several times during the last two weeks I can report that the food, service, friendliness and value for money is well deserving of this "excellent" rating. The menu is extremely extensive and caters for lots of different tastes. I sampled many of the dishes and every one of them was brilliantly prepared and presented. The chef... More

I will never enjoy eating at any establishment that has cats all around, cat hair covering the seat. Great location, nice staff but not for me

Had been around the archeological sight and church and visited this lovely place for drinks with friends. We were made most welcome and the lady proprietor took our photos on our 3 different phones - we had to say "haloumi" ! Most enjoyable pit stop.

We had a lovely lunch of mixed grilled meat pittas and salad, expected a snack and got a feast. Very tasty with fresh herbs all helped down by a cold keo beer. Lots of attention from the friendly cats and lovely view of the ancient site while you eat. Very popular place and recommended.

Chris and Gillian's family run restaurant is the one we visit the most often. They are now great friends, providing lovely food (usually with much laughter from Gillian) and always go the extra mile to ensure you enjoy your food. Chris serves large portions to ensure your hunger is sated. If too much food, they are happy to supply a... More

This restaurant is a family run 'hidden gem' in Paphos and is well worth a visit. We went 3 times in a week! All types of food is served there and at very reasonable prices. The Greek Meze we ordered, at one of our visits, left 4 of us almost unable to walk back to our hotels! Gillian and Cris well done
