We have been to Tala for the last 3 years and always visit Melitza each time and have never been disappointed. The service and food is fantastic and also you get complementary toasted bread for starters and cake with fruit for desert. You can sit outside and watch the sun set or sit indoors. We highly recommend this restaurant. The... More

Real family run restaurant, everyone seems to play a part, very friendly. Real Greek, home cooked food, very reasonably priced. Stunning view from tables by the windows, ask for one if you book which is advisable in season. Would definitely go back.

The taverna provided traditional food in a very open and friendly atmosphere. We visited the taverna on two occasions during our week in Tala in the company of Cypriot born friends who said, and I heartily agreed, the Meze was the best they had experienced for a long time. I would recommend a visit to anyone wishing a traditional meal... More

Really enjoyed the village mezze at €14.50 each , it's enormous you can easily share so order 2 between 4. Rest of the menu looks good and fabulous view over Paphos. Definitely worth seeking out.

We returned to this restaurant for our last meal of the holiday, as it was the best of the meals we had during our stay. The service and food were once again a to a high standard and will be revisiting next time we're in the area

Lovely traditional food, and plenty of it! Staff were lovely, steeped in history, with lots of photos and interesting objects. The children loved the food, and we saw a lovely sunset, as the views off to the sea and over Pathos were beautiful! We had a lovely meal.

As with the last time we visited, the main course was served before the starter had been eaten. Whilst the meal was hot and freshly cooked, too much of a rush even when the restaurant was not busy. The menu is simple and the food good and reasonably priced. What more do you want ?

We come to Tala regularly, on this trip we have already eaten here twice, the meze is fantastic and the local red wine simply goes down a treat. Outstanding food at a great price

Excellent authentic food. Family run place, very welcoming. Sifado, Afelia both melt in the mouth. Chicken dishes excellent as well. Nice extra touches and very good value for money. In summer the view will be spectacular from the outside terrace!
