We ate here on Boxing Day and had the traditional buffet. There is a variety of food, ranging from moussaka to suckling pig to stifado (and much more). All of it is excellent and the staff is very kind. Great value as well!

We have had coffee in this friendly restaurant before. I was killing time waiting for a flight from Paphos airport (less than 10 minutes away) and called in for lunch. The restaurants in Kouklia are usually quiet at this time of the year, and there were just another couple in the restaurant when I arrived, but I was drawn in... More

Had a great and well-priced meze. All courses were nice but highlights were the moussaka and sheftalia if you don't fancy a meze. Nice and friendly hosts.

No 1 on tripadvisor and rightly so. Most welcoming host. Great selection. Good home cooking. Excellent, tasty and large portions. Very noticeable that there are many repeat customers. Nice touch of cake and fruit to finish with.Free gratis.

Whenever we visit Cyprus we always look forward to meals at Gabriels. Gabriel himself and his delightful wife are always on hand to ensure that every aspect of your dinner experience is perfect and inevitably, it always is. Many restaurants in the town are disappointing and spoil themselves by trying to emulate cuisine from other countries. If you really want... More

We were staying around the corner from Kouklia and we decided to try Gabriel's one evening. The food was excellent, the staff were lovely and welcoming. Would definitely return when we visit Cyprus again.
