On a return to Paphos after 25 years we just had to seek out Mothers which we were so pleased to find was still in business, as our initial impressions of "redeveloped Paphos" was poor - now too modern/cosmopolitan and lacking traditional rustic Cypriot charm. Fortunately this could be found in abundance at Mothers where we were able to drink... More

The brothers are very welcoming and the atmosphere is homely. Food very good and reasonably priced. Can be difficult to find if you are new to area, but it is well worth the effort.

If you are ever in Paphos and want to taste traditional Cypriot food you can do no better than visit Mother's Restaurant. We had Kleftiko (lamb) - only available on Tuesday evenings - and it took us back to earlier times living in Cyprus. It is quite close to the bus station and easy to find (directions on the web).

Wow! My uncle had read about this little find on here. Once we found it we were met by Costa who we booked a table for the Saturday night. Great birthday celebrations from Costa and his brother. Food was excellent and so much choice and so very well priced. There was the clay oven special which was pork and chicken... More

As vegans, we were disappointed but our friends (who are carnivores) enjoyed their meals. Ours (Mothers Veggie Special) was a little bland, small & left us feeling hungry. But they did try & we had an OK evening.

This is an amazing place. Each customer on arriving is greeted by the two delightful brothers who run the taverna. The menu is varied, not just a full range of tradition and local foods but other options too. Cannot recommend highly enough.
