Waiter was friendly and entertaining. Tavas (The daily special) was tasty. Portions were just the right size (smaller than most in Paphos), and lower price. Sex on the Beach cocktail was VERY alcoholic!

Having visited Cyprus every year for the past 27 years this is definitely one of the best restaurants i have visited. Great local food, family recipes which you can not replicate and great service. would definitely visit here if you get a chance!

This is the perfect place to feel the atmosphere of the island of Cyprus . It' s a restaurant where you can test the local food and you see a family who lead this business from 3 years. Try it !

Quite difficult to find, even using my internet map we walked straight past it, but worth it in the end. A stone’s throw from the bus station and harbour. A warm welcome from a family business, and good food and drinks at a reasonable price....More

In the middle of Paphos but a tucked away location means you might easily miss what we thought was the best restaurant we found in Paphos. The main entrance is through an arch between shops more or less opposite the Argo restaurant but I think...More

My wife and I discovered "Mothers" on our second night in Kato Pafos and we went back every night, Costas, Sotiris and Tony made us feel like family eating there. Nothing was too much trouble, the lamb and chicken dishes were cooked in a clay...More

Stifado, Sea Bream, Lamb Psito, Kleftiko, Octopus Stew, Grilled Halloumi, Garlic Mushrooms.....The food here cannot be faulted and is always consistent. I really cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. The setting is also delightful and if offered an aperitif do have the Amaretto.
