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.

We were staying in the village and visited this restaurant on our first evening after being recommended by our villa owners. The food and hospitality were excellent. A good menu with plenty of Greek/Cypriot dishes all cooked to order. The portions are very generous and all come at a very reasonable cost as do the drinks. We tried another restaurant... More

A great place to come and visit nightly. The selection and quality of food was superb. A very extensive menu but stick to the local foods. I really enjoyed the swordfish and the wines. You can go here everyday and not repeat a meal and the service was very good and loved chatting and making friends.

Went here on a trip to the nearby archaeological site. Gabriel's had been recommended by several friends and it didn't disappoint, from the lovely frappe we had on arrival, followed by a walk round the village to build up our appetites for lunch. I had some of the nicest Dolmades I have ever had, served with a fresh salad and... More

What can I say? After reading the views and only being a 5 minute car journey down the road, we decided to book. We keyed it in to the sat nav on the phone and found it easily. It is a buzzing little restuarant, in the centre of the village. Nothing designer, just good old checkered table cloths and Greek/Cypriot... More

Why had we not been before? I guess this is the first time we have had a car. Three of us had the meze (we won't need to eat tomorrow!) the rest ordered a la carte. Service was fun and friendly, we will be back

We decided to try Gabriel's on the recommendation of a friend who visited in the summer . We weren't disappointed ! A friendly welcome and a cosy setting awaited. The food was amazing , we opted for our own dishes but the meze looked delicious as well. We could happily have eaten the warm pitta on it's own! We'll definitely... More
