Our favourite Taverna and they did not let us down. My wife and I had the Moussaka and both agreed it is second to none. Our son had the fillet steak, ordered it rare and that is how it came. The service, as always, was...More

We went here for Sunday lunch, but made a point of getting there around midday because we knew that it could get quite noisy when the families started to arrive around one o'clock. The downside to this is that the barbequed suckling pig and chicke,...More

Called in a couple of times this holiday, wished we had tried it during previous visits to this area. Had a lovely meze which was both tasty and reasonably priced. Enjoyed chatting with the friendly host/owner. Will definitely return!

We were on our way home after a six day stay in Paphos. We had enjoyed a number of restaurants during our stay but without doubt Akis Tavern was by far the best. The service was excellent with the owner very friendly. We sat outside...More

Nice restaurant, good staff but most importantly, amazing food. I've eaten all over Cyprus and this is the best place I've been to. I visited about 3 years ago and fortunately it was still as good as it was then. Even if you're on holiday...More

Couldn't comment on the vegetarian issue. Would suggest you ring them first. It's a family run taverna and they are very helpful and the food is plentiful.

Hi, I think they close after lunch at 3pm and open again for dinner. I don't know what days I am afraid.

A simple traditional taverna, family run, with no gourmet elements, as that would contradict the whole concept, in a village setting and beautiful gardens. My mum prepares the food with lots of love and the rest of us make sure it is served to you properly and on time! The presentation is simple as well, as my father wants, although my mother would love to show off a bit more of her skills:) However and most importantly, it is genuinely Cypriot!We have had the taverna since 1990 and during the years we have made a lot of wonderful friends and shared with them beautiful moments, wedding and christening parties, anniversaries and birthday parties. That is the best part of the story!So, after writing a whole essay I realise I could just describe it with one single sentence: A family-run tavern who loves Cypriot food and enjoys serving its visitors!Thank you for taking the time to read it!
